Hendo Contracting was founded in 1979 in Elmont, NY by the present owner, Bob Henderson. Bob actually started his remodeling career in 1974 at the age of nineteen. After apprenticing for two years, Bob worked as a sub-contractor for several businesses as well as establishing a name for himself. After living and working in Queens and Long Island his entire life, in 1985 Bob and his family decided to move to Rockland County. It was at that time that Hendo Contracting was established in Rockland County.
Well, it’s not all about Bob anymore. Hendo Contracting has grown. We have several highly qualified workers who are supervised by longtime employee Jim McDonnell, a showroom, state of the art equipment that enables us to perform our work efficiently and safely, and a fleet of young trucks. Although we’ve grown, the same business practices still apply; attention to detail, quality material, respect for your property, fair pricing. And don’t worry; there will always be a Hendo at Hendo Contracting. Bob’s two sons have worked at jobsites during their summers for years. Phil and Kenny, after graduating from college, have now joined the business full time.
Many things in the industry have changed since that cold day in January, 1974, when Bob first strapped on a tool belt but there is one thing that will never change according to Bob Henderson, "if you're honest and do good work and your prices are fair, most people will appreciate you and you will always be busy."
