He comes well prepared, works professionally and diligently and leaves the job with a complete and detailed clean up. You leave nothing for chance with Mr. Schank, he is the proverbial 'Go to Home Construction" guru. It doesn't get any better in terms of quality performance.

I hired Gary because I would see his truck in my complex all the time. He gutted and installed a new kitchen and also gutted and re-did my basement. All I heard about contractors was that they never call you back, don't show up for days, etc. Gary is the exact opposite. His work is TOP quality. He is easy going and just fabulous to communicate with. He would go over the schedule with me, and always follow through. My kitchen is beautiful. And my basement is fabulous. The subcontractors were terrific also. I am so proud to show off all of Gary's work and would recommend him to anyone. I am happy to show anyone who wants to see his work what he has accomplished in my home.

We hired Gary W. Schank Custom Carpentry as the general contractor for a massive, interior and exterior home renovation. By far, the single smartest decision we made during this project was selecting Gary as the GC. Our project was fraught with unanticipated issues – not related to Gary, his work or the tradesmen he brought in, but the types of things you just won't discover until you gut a space. He addressed each of these issues with a level of knowledge that was extremely comforting, as was the way that he fully explained the options to us in easy-to-understand, layman's terms. He offered his guidance and opinions on not only those issues, but also material selections and design elements, which made the never-ending decision-making process one that was far less stressful than it could have been.


Not only was he knowledgeable and a highly skilled craftsman, but Gary brought a level of creativity and insight to the project that we frankly didn't anticipate, offering us suggestions that made a tremendous difference in the overall design of the project and the finished product. Those suggestions and ideas were the exactly the kinds of touches that gave our home a polished, cohesive look. I had brought in my own kitchen designer on this project, and when she dropped the ball, it was Gary who picked it up and kept the project moving seamlessly.


We cannot adequately express in this space exactly how much the selection of Gary Schank to lead our home renovation impacted the overall project and the end result. We bought this home 15 years ago with every intention of renovating it, and while it may have taken us a bit longer than we anticipated to get here, the wait was well worth it.

It has far surpassed what we hoped to achieve, and it is largely due to the dedication, diligence and care with which he ran the project. Gary is a fair and honest man, he's an expert in his field, and he keeps his word, something we’ve discovered is a rarity in this industry. This is now our dream home, and it is that because of Gary. We're forever grateful to him for the attention to detail, the care and the talent that he brought to this project.


If any potential customer is reading this and would like to speak to me further, please reach out to Gary for my contact information. I would be happy to discuss our project and our experience with Gary W. Schank Custom Carpentry further.

We hired Gary after we sustained substantial damage from Hurricane Irene. Not only did he provide excellent service and skills, but he was very compassionate and caring. His men were excellent and we felt very comfortable leaving them in our home alone to do their work. This was a major undertaking, being that he was working on multiple homes at the same time. He reassured us that everything would go as planned. The job was done in a timely manner and very professional. We would highly recommend Gary for any building project that you need.

Very Satisfied

Our home suffered extensive damage from hurricane Irene. As soon as everything dried we handed the key to Gary Schank knowing we had contracted with a honest true professional. Once he began, Gary and his crew never stopped until the job was completed. Each day I would return home to find another segment completed and virtually no mess left behind. He also had several excellent ideas to improve different areas of the project that fit well within our budget. Gary and each member of his crew are professionals that take great pride in their work. I have enjoyed working with Gary and highly recommend him. If anyone has any questions you may contact me at 201-891-2600.

When it came time to extensively remodel our home here in Oakland, NJ we interviewed a number of local contractors. Gary Schank was far and away our favorite choice; based on responsiveness, professionalism and price. Once work began, it never stopped - no interruptions. Gary would always call the night before to remind us he'd be there the next morning. Gary helped in our initial planning and the final execution and we remain thrilled with the results. It was, bar none, the best contracting experience we've ever had; totally pain free, enjoyable even. Anyone considering Gary Schank for a job is welcome to contact me at (201) 405-1525 and come to our home for a first hand inspection of his work!
