We provide home remodeling services in Central NJ with a focus on kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, additions and whole house renovations.

Gary was chosen from three contractors that provided bids on the remodeling of our home. My search took place on the internet, friends, and general public bulletin boards. My wife and I had done through research on what we wanted and design.

Gary understood and paid attention to what we wanted. He was a pleasure to work with. Gary paid great attention to the details and provided expert advice on all facets of the design. We enlarged windows, added a great room, hardwood floors, stone chimney, new roof, log vinyl siding and EP Henry brick porch. We also upgraded the kitchen with granite counters, title back splash and tile floors.

Gary really took great care of us. He advised when he saw things that were not properly built when the previous owner added a window and subfloor to a previous garage.

Gary was not the cheapest but felt we were getting more for our money.

The bottom line is that you can trust and depend on him doing a great job!

We are writing to express my most heartfelt thanks for all the incredible work you have done for our family over this past year. The past 18 months have been a roller-coaster for our family and the peace-of-mind that you provided by being on the job was truly a blessing.

First, when Rebecca passed last year you were at the ready to help us get her house on the market. The work you did was wonderful. But more than that was the fact that you were there, ready and willing, to help us during a very difficult time for the family. The fact that we got offers on the house the first week it was on the market serves as a true testament to the quality of your work!

Then we turned our attention to selling the family home. For the first six months it was on the market, we received no action whatsoever. Then, you and your crew came in. Three months later, and we should note that those three months were marked by one of the worst winters in history as well as other unforeseen challenges, still, you and your crew came through. Within weeks of your team completing their work on the house, we had a ton of activity at the house – and two offers!! Before Houghton Contracting – no action. After Houghton Contracting – the house is sold!!!

Permits, inspections, certificates, and pictures serve as ample evidence of the quality of your work. But they don’t tell the whole story. Repeatedly you went above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done – and to help out my family. There are schools to teach people how to do the job – but they can’t teach class. You and your team are a class act!

The news is filled with home improvement horror stories and words of warning about dealing with contractors. Clearly, these folks have not met you! You are a tribute to the profession and a true blessing to our family!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t home the last time you came to our house. I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job. The room looks so different – it gives the house a whole new atmosphere. We had a large gathering for the Wedding and everyone admired your work.

Thank you for being a professional, a craftsman, and a gentleman.

Once again, thanks for making my home look wonderful!

– Odile Ogonowski

Just a note to say thank you for all your help with my sister’s house! While your professional abilities are both obvious and impressive, your flexibility and willingness to see us through this process is most greatly appreciated!

Losing my sister has been incredibly tough on the family. And dealing with the practical and emotional sides of settling my sister’s estate, as well as looking after my folks was more than I had bargained for! There is no way we could’ve done this without your help! Thank you so very, very much!

And, just an FYI – we’ll be calling on you again – and soon! My folks are going to move to a seniors’ community down by Me. So we’ll need to do some work to get their house ready to sell. Thanks Again!

I didn’t even recognize the house I grew up in! It was an amazing transformation.

We were so impressed at the painstaking effort they took to get the wainscoting exacting right. We put the new dining room to the test when we had 18 people over for a dinner party. Everyone was able to fit comfortably. It was perfect!

Gary saw what the house could be, not what it was. He had vision. His plan was not just cosmetic, but rather, a total transformation which made the house seem larger, more open and more modern.

Gary went above and beyond my idea of a contractor. Besides being an excellent carpenter, he was an artist with great business acumen. We were awestruck at the renovation and the successful outcome.
