Our Story

Our Home Remodeling adventures started right here in New Jersey way back in 1968.

A rusty old truck, a strong back, and a dream. That’s all it took for Lou Amiano Sr. to start his small New Jersey construction company back in 1968. With a simple goal of helping homeowner’s realize their home remodeling dreams, Lou Sr. built a company based on trust and a dedication to his craft.

41 years later in 2009 Lou’s son, Lou Jr., took the reigns to continue the Amiano and Son legacy. Having grown up in the construction and remodeling industry, Lou Jr. has a lifetime of industry knowledge. And by combining that know-how with today’s cutting edge technology and latest design trends, Lou has built a national award-winning company right here in Tabernacle, New Jersey. Fifty years and hundreds of happy customers later, Amiano and Son is your partner in making your home remodel dreams come true.

We’re now an award-winning construction company and one of the largest home remodeling groups in the area. So when it’s time for you to turn your old home into the home of your dreams, give us a call.

Since 1968 we’ve had the pleasure of working with some wonderful homeowners and have had the opportunity to show off our design and build capabilities. And after all that hard work, we’re proud to be recognized by some leading industry publications by receiving these wonderful awards.
