Formerly an equity trader in Manhattan, Andy left the corporate world in 2012 to join his father, Jon, and create TFHR. With an avid appreciation for historical restoration, extensive construction knowledge and a mechanical engineering background, Andy believes the structural and system details behind the walls should be just as well executed as the finishes you see. He's of the 'do it right the first time' school of thought and has established a team of talented, professional craftsmen to execute our projects in a precise and timely manner.
A successful small business-owner throughout his entire career, Jon began his renovation work one small job at a time. As word spread, he partnered with Andy to take on larger projects, including a massive seaside addition in LBI and a gut renovation in Hoboken. Together, the father and son team have over 50 years of combined renovation experience, working on everything from apartment kitchens to full brownstone re-builds. Today, Jon utilizes his accounting background to oversee the day-to-day operations of the company, including all permitting matters. It doesn't hurt that his good-natured demeanor makes him fast friends in any building department he visits.

A highly skilled finish carpenter, Ryan spent years building everything from custom cabinetry to full staircases for his father's business. He eventually struck out on his own, taking on complex projects including fireplace surrounds, built-ins and detailed furniture, honing his expertise along the way. With a strong belief in the proper tools for the job, Ryan is always on the hunt for ways to streamline our techniques to produce the best product possible. He looks forward to collaborating with creative homeowners and loves any project that requires a plunging router and a jig.
A meticulous master painter with over 13 years experience in both residential and commercial spaces, Roberto feels strongly that the more precise your prep work is, the better the final product. To that end, he approaches spackling and plastering with a meditative patience, sanding and readying every surface so it's perfectly primed to ensure a flawless final coat. His favorite tool is a spackle-knife, and the best part of his job is when a happy homeowner sees the transformed space for the first time.
Louis began his career almost 30 years ago, working alongside his brother in their Hoboken-based painting business scraping and painting radiators. From the moment he first picked up a brush he was immediately drawn to the artistic focus it demands, and has since painted his way through countless brownstones and condos around town. Though he briefly tried commercial painting, it's the exacting, detailed concentration of residential projects (most notably intricate, complicated woodwork) that he loves the most. His favorite paint color is light pink and stepping back to see a finished room is the most satisfying part of his job.
