Our Story: From Craftsmanship to Community Legacy

Our journey began in 1983 when Gene, a seasoned craftsman with a vision for high-quality remodeling, founded G&L and Sons Renovations. His commitment to excellence set the foundation for what would become a local legacy in home renovation. In 1993, Gene’s son, Chris, joined the company, bringing fresh energy and business acumen. Together, they expanded the firm's services, focusing on comprehensive home remodels that catered to growing family needs.

Later in 2004, David, another of Gene's sons, joined G&L and Sons Renovations, bringing his substantial business experience to further the company's growth. David, alongside his brother Chris, formed a strong partnership, leading the company into a new era of expansion and innovation. Together, they have been at the helm for years, steering the firm towards continued success by enhancing its services and client engagement, building on the strong foundation their father laid.

As our project demand increased, we welcomed our first non-family team member, Herb, a skilled carpenter, in 2014, marking a new chapter in our ability to handle multiple large-scale projects simultaneously. Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, G&L and Sons Renovations continued to thrive, moving into a new office in Caldwell and enhancing our client meeting spaces to better serve our community. Today, G&L and Sons Renovations stands as a testament to decades of hard work, client trust, and a relentless pursuit of remodeling excellence. We continue to serve the families of Montclair and surrounding areas, making their dream homes a reality.
