THE FACE OF EXCEPTIONAL HOME RENOVATIONS

Truly inspired by the recent renovation of my own home, I firmly believe that our homes should be a reflection of ourselves. My transition from commercial to residential projects was inspired by a deep desire to make a positive impact on individual lives, curate meaningful and personalized spaces, and establish long-lasting relationships with my clients. It has been an incredibly rewarding journey, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to bring my passion for design into the heart of people’s homes that evoke joy, peace, and love.

THE FACE OF CUSTOM-BUILT GARAGE DOORS

When Henry B. Whitaker opened his shop in 1949, the options for garage doors were extremely limited. Today, the company is run by his granddaughter and her husband, Casarra and Jonathan Cover, who have garage door making in their blood.

Over three generations, Whitaker has grown to offer state-of-the-art handmade custom wood garage doors that transform your home in any style imaginable. Whitaker continues to build all of its wood doors in its Brewster facility to provide exceptional service.

To a Whitaker, a garage door is much more than just a door, it gives an initial impression of a home and the family that lives inside or the business that thrives there.
