Company History

Gaines Construction Co., Inc. was established in 1970 by Raymond E. Gaines, Sr. At the inception of Gaines Construction Co., Inc. and for many years afterward Ray Gaines, Sr., did all the work himself. The company has grown since then, but still today many of the first clients or their children will call or refer us to their friends. We have achieved customer loyalty and a solid financial base. 

Today, Ray Gaines Sr., personally coordinates and guarantees all the work. The company is fortunate to have several highly skilled carpenters. Our staff is comprised of quality-oriented professionals whose objective is to complete your project in a timely fashion, and meet the daily needs of you and your project. We are always at your service to answer questions or concerns you may have during the course of the project, and our office and/or field personnel will handle them professionally and expediently. We understand that a good relationship and good communication between the architect and contractor is key to a smooth and successful project.

Gaines Construction Co., Inc., specializes in high quality remodeling from simple renovations to highly complicated whole- house gut and reconstructions. We are a full service general contractor/remodeler offering our clients use of subcontractors with many years of expertise in their respective fields. We pride ourselves in fine finish work with attention to detail. We also do some commercial and industrial work.

We have worked for and satisfied some of Fairfield Counties best architects and quality-oriented clients.

Work performed by Gaines Construction, Co., Inc., has been featured in House Beautiful magazine, Period Homes magazine, and in the New York Times. Raymond E. Gaines, Sr., has also been the recipient of the CONTRACTOR OF THE YEAR AWARD by the Remodeling Contractors’ Association, and our company was honored as one of the “Big 50” award recipients by the national publication Remodeling Magazine.

Our philosophy and approach to a project is simple. Our goal is to review and understand the project thoroughly; price all components fairly; develop open communication with architect and client; and above all complete each project in a timely, quality oriented manner. We are more interested in doing fewer projects better, than pushing out more work and sacrificing quality and reputation. We pay all of our taxes and insurance, and hire only legitimate, quality oriented subcontractors. Because of our approach we have always sought out the value oriented client versus the lowest price seeker. Our client base is primarily repeat homeowners, architects, and referrals.
