I am a graduate of Immaculata high school in Somerville New Jersey. Right out of high school I joined my dad's company "Libra Construction".I started out as an apprentice learning the trade of masonry & hardscape. Learning from my dad and both grandfathers who learned from there family in Italy . Shortly after I was made a partner. Throughout the years I would also team up with my older brother's company D & J Construction who had established himself as a general contractor,building new homes ,decks ,all types of home improvement projects.
I've had opportunties to be part of some subsatantial projects including work at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken NJ .Assignments included installation of brick, slate roof & modified granulated & smooth rubber systems. Custom aluminum trim , and copper flashing ,and built in gutter system.
Also the renovation/restoration of The Krueger Brewery in Newark NJ, I supervised all aspects of this project. This included dismantling of all brick and brown stones on the veneer of building, including (5) fireplaces and the main tower. Before any rebuilding could begin I had to recreate the exact formula for the cement that was made back in 1881. It had to be analyzed to make sure it's proportions was that of the original. Replacement of the many damaged ornate brown stones accent pieces were done on site. Restoration of the slate roof, copper leaders and gutters also included as well.
One of the most interesting projects was located in South River NJ at St. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church . Challenging all the skill's I had acquired over the years. The prominent part of this was the total rebuild of the copper domes that adorn the church's roof. We also fabricated copper crosses that were gold leafed and rest on top of domes. From brick work to copper work this job had it all.
In 1990 I commenced on my own with Christopher Construction LLC. We began our journey with new home construction for the first year. Installing concrete footings, block foundations, and brick & stone veneer work. Then we changed our focus and started to work directly with homeowner's. Offering services such as custom hardscapes i.e , patios , retaining walls , sidewalks , & porches. My company collaborated with a local Landscape Arcitect that introduced a whole new level of custom hardscapes to our clients. With exciting new designs and helping us showcase our ability to bring customers visions to a reality. Expanding living spaces with outdoor kitchens & fireplaces , pool hardscapes from brick pavers to stone coping and waterfalls. Custom stone work ( cultured stone & full veneer stone) , installations of concrete balusters ,brick paver and stone driveways , patios and sidewalks , most integrated with our lightscapes. Now with our new "buy the hour service" for all home improvement projects it's an exciting new way of bringing affordability to our customers.
