About Us

In 1973, Ellis DeWalt started a small construction company in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx. Almost 50 years later that dream that started in a garage on Harding Avenue has now grown to servicing the entire New York City area and parts of Connecticut and New Jersey.

Ellis DeWalt’s road to success was based on a three-prong system:

  1. Hire only skilled certified craftsmen.

  2. Use only the finest materials.

  3. Offer upfront pricing at a bargain rate.

    As the housing market boomed, so did DEWALT CONTRACTORS ®. We started purchasing warehouses to store our materials and opening showrooms across the tri-state area. However, we noticed that our pricing margins were no longer competitive and our sales started struggling.

Now that Ellis had retired and his son Peter was running the company, this was the perfect time to make a drastic change. Peter decided to optimize on the internet and social media and start closing our warehouses and showroom locations. After all, this was the overhead that was driving our prices through the roof.

We started only dealing with manufactures and suppliers that housed their own materials and we maximized our web presence.

Now customers can choose from a variety of colors, brands and material types. You can see a list of our services and schedule an estimate. You can even request samples for our agents to bring along on your appointment. Customers can make credit card payments and even use PayPal. You can also view some of our past projects and read real reviews from real customers.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about DEWALT CONTRACTORS ®. We look forward to working with you soon.
