Patricia — Patti, in person — is much more than the owner and president of Aleto Construction Group. She is also its heart and soul, its voice and handshake.

Since 1995, she has been a central part of the company founded by her father, Tom Aleto. Now at the helm, Patti brings a lifetime of hands-on experience to every contact and every client. Drawing on lessons learned from her father and the industry as a whole, she lives and breathes the construction business as few can, with an intuitive grasp of aesthetics, architecture and financials. It’s a powerful combination that every homeowner wants in their corner.

A member of countless boards and builder associations, Patti is plugged into every industry development in the St. Louis market, as well as some outside the area. She began her work in the construction business as a cabinet maker, and she applies that roll-up-your-sleeves mindset to connect meaningfully with clients, helping them to realize visions of the perfect space, executed with the care and craftsmanship that would make her father proud. A dedicated vegetarian as well as 20-year practitioner and instructor of transcendental meditation, Patti’s approach to life is as holistic and spiritual as her approach to building and design.


Mike continues the family tradition for thoughtful design as Aleto Construction’s Head of Production. When a new project takes shape, Mike is the one talking—and listening—to both the customer and the builders who will bring their vision to life. He is constantly on the move, juggling a thousand priorities without dropping the ball for anyone.

As you would expect from a man in his position, Mike thinks fast on his feet and always finds the humor in any situation. Trusted by contractors and customers alike, he can bring projects to life like no one else—and he never quits until the job is done. Married for 25 years to his wife, Paula, they have three children and three grandchildren (so far). Now in High Ridge, Mike has been a part of this community for a long time, particularly the backyard grilling and smoking scene.


Coming to Aleto from Washington, Eric brought a vast knowledge of construction. Previously working for residential remodelers, window and door installers and even designing and building custom indoor and outdoor furniture for 14+ years there is no task he can’t take on.

Eric enjoys working with his hands to create something beautiful, yet functional. You can often find him digging into the details to make sure every T is crossed and every I is dotted. He enjoys figuring out a challenge on the jobsite and making everything come together seamlessly.


Chris came to Aleto with a great smile, hardworking attitude and a desire to work with his hands building and renovating homes. He enjoys working with Aleto because he learns something new every day and gets to meet great people. 

Chris was born and raised in Alton, IL, home of the famous Fast Eddies Bon Air. In his free time he enjoys spending quality time with his family watching movies or listening to music. 


Kyle started working for the family business the summer he was 14 and eventually moved into a full-time position before he headed off to Ranken Technical College. He graduated from the Ranken Automotive Technology program and spent nearly a decade restoring cars, trucks, motorcycles and heavy equipment. In 2021, Kyle returned to Aleto with the skills he has learned working beside his father, Mike, and grandfathers over the years. He strives to be a jack of all trades and is eager to learn new things and solve problems.

Kyle spends his free time with his wife Jamie and their three children enjoying the peace and tranquility of their 10 acre lot in Jefferson County.


With over 32 years’ experience in the construction industry, Curt has done it all. He joins our team with an immense understanding of construction both in the office and in the field. Curt’s well-rounded, go getter attitude had his previous boss calling him “a swiss army knife” – ready for anything.

On the office side of the construction business Curt has worked in cabinetry, industrial roofing, siding, marble, granite, reading blueprints, producing drawings, cut sheets, ordering material and solving challenges as they arose. The hands-on skills Curt has gained in the field range from interpreting drawings, inspection coordination, laying and digging foundations, concrete work, framing, installation of windows, siding, roofing, deck construction, plumbing, electrical, cabinet layouts and much more.

Curt’s expertise in all areas of construction will help our clients as he works with trade partners, vendors and the preconstruction team to pull their estimate together. When Curt isn’t working he enjoys spending time with his family and volunteering his time in his church ministries.
