Laura Calfayan - President

If you’re looking for an energetic, positive-thinking partner in remodeling your home, meet Laura Calfayan. Her creative energy and organizational skills ensure consistently excellent results–on time and within budget. You’ll enjoy working with her every step of the way.

Ownership. In 2000, Laura assumed ownership of Calfayan Construction, the company her husband Reis had founded some years earlier. Eager to forge the fine craftsmanship of Reis and his team into a truly professional business, she developed clear direction for the company.

Success stories. She began by listening to “horror stories” of other contractors who left frustrated and dissatisfied clients behind. Laura’s goal was for Calfayan Construction to create its own stories of successful projects and happy clients.

On-time and as-promised. Working for years behind the scenes, attending conferences and seminars, and engaging in hands-on company experience, Laura developed a unique, customer-centered management style. Focused on fulfilling commitments and delivering on time and as promised, she took Calfayan Construction’s portfolio of high-end renovations to national, regional, and local recognition.

Big 50. In 2005, Calfayan Construction was elected to the prestigious Big 50, REMODELING magazine’s Top 50 remodeling companies in the country. Proud of her company’s role as industry leader, Laura works hard to continually deliver successful projects and make dreams come true for customers like you.

Looking for fine, European-style craftsmanship coupled with 21st century techniques? Meet company founder, Reis Calfayan.

Apprenticeship. Working early on for Gino Minardi, an Italian immigrant who specialized in historic restoration, Reis learned true craftsmanship, business integrity, and pride in doing beautiful work.

Experience. He then honed his carpentry skills through a wide variety of experiences working for others: demolition sergeant (82nd Airborne Division, US Army), carpenter (Section 8 and HUD housing), restorer of historic homes (Restoration Company), and carpenter-at-large (miscellaneous companies). Finally, Reis had seen and learned enough to know how to satisfy clients.

First Business. Determined to do just that, he started his own business, Calfayan Custom Carpentry, in 1993. His love of building and eagerness to take on challenges sparked his desire to offer more than just “man-and-his-tools-and truck” carpentry. His primary objective was to deliver 100% on promises and make clients happy.

Enter Laura. But Reis understood that building a professional company was as hard as building a home. He would need help. His wife Laura’s expertise complemented his perfectly. She would provide business skills required to grow their company.

Calfayan Construction.
When Laura assumed ownership in 2000, the company became Calfayan Construction. Together, Reis and Laura have built a reputation not only for exceptional craftsmanship but also for on-time, within budget delivery as promised. Their reputation has translated into an extensive referral base.
