Our Story

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

The year was 1968 when Louis Amiano Senior decided it was time to start his own company and create a better future for his family. Starting as a mason in North Jersey then soon re-locating to South Jersey, Louis Senior continued to work hard on his company year after year. Fast forward to the year 2009, Louis Amiano Junior took over the reins of this family-owned construction company. Louis Junior has a lifetime full of industry education and experience. By combining his knowledge in construction, with modern-day technology, and the latest design trends, Louis Junior has built a national award-winning design-build remodeling firm right here in small-town Southampton, NJ.

In the more recent years, Louis Junior’s nephew and daughter have also joined the family-operation, Joseph Clymer and Sophia Amiano. After fifty-plus years of business, Amiano & Son continues to be a family owned and operated company with a firm foundation built on knowledge, passion, and generations of hard work. 

As a family, we take each and every project on as if it were our own home, because we understand the importance of your house not just for you but for your whole family. So, when a project arises – Call Amiano, a company that you can trust to leave you with a beautiful finished product to enjoy for years to come.

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.
