A&E Builders was founded in 2004 as a carpentry subcontractor specializing in framing and finish carpentry. Working alongside many highly regarded general contractors based here in Long Beach, New York, we forged alliances with the craftsmen & artisans we employ today. As our company grew, A&E decided to push the envelope and offer general contracting and project management services. Now, in 2011, we have evolved into true custom home builders in the city of Long Beach and particularly the West End. We hold licenses in the city of Long Beach and Nassau County.
We owe our rapid growth and steady work to the high quality you’ll find in every home we build. Each A&E home is a multi-faceted, thought provoking, artistic creation. From designing the traditional beach bungalow or craftsman to conceptualizing the cutting-edge contemporary, we take pride in developing an authentic character in each home we construct. Pioneering new design concepts and refining age old building techniques has focused our entire team on giving the homeowner with a one of a kind custom-built masterpiece.
A&E Builders relies on a carpentry-based professional crew that can do anything from timber framing to mortise and tenon furniture building. We work closely with our clients to help them realize their vision. Our integrity is defined by the work that we do. Our work has attracted highly-skilled, college-educated craftsmen, with whom clients are able to discuss most aspects of the project. The core of A&E Builders is to continually enhance our skills and to create the unimaginable. By cultivating our professional integrity, knowledge base and artistry, we have established an impeccable reputation with our clients, subcontractors, architects, designers and city and county building departments. We invite you to join the team.
Andy & Eric
Andy was born in 1976 and I came a few months later in fall of ‘77. Our parents tell us that from the start we were inseparable. Our father, Dennis, was a general contractor who was mentored by the renowned architect Bill Downing. Our father taught us basic and advanced building techniques at a very young age. I recall being on projects when I was no taller than a table saw, and looking at an ornamental plastered ceiling and thinking, “That shouldn’t be too hard.” In grade school we worked weekends on the job site and the occasional summer. Before long, Andy and I could identify the type of lumber being used with just a whiff of the air. During college, we both attended State schools while working construction on the side. After graduation, Andy went right into the construction industry and worked his way up to a project manager position with a Long Island-based firm. I decided that the corporate path was the one for me. After about three years in sales, I decided that I would be much happier walking in my father’s footsteps.
Andy and I have formed a construction firm dedicated to creative design, quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. As brothers, we have the quintessential sibling rivalry that has nurtured the development of the company. A&E Builders has expanded upon the roots of the craft, a foundation built on our father’s 45+ years of building experience.
