5.0 Jennifer H. Westfield, NJ

My first floor and basement were flooded when Ida hit our area. Not only was I dealing with having my home destroyed I also had the huge task of finding an honest, reliable contractor to manage my rebuild. Glen was working on a house next door and after several conversations I knew he was the right person for the job. He listened and executed my vision, and I am very happy with the end result. His project road map kept me informed on timelines and having the mobile showroom allowed me to pick the right finishes without having to drive all over to view product. High recommend First Class Building & remodeling.

5.0 Cindy R. South Orange, NJ

We had a great experience with First Class Building and Remodeling and would hire them again for future remodeling projects. Glenn, owner and operator, cares deeply about the product quality and ensuring that the design is optimized. His ideas enhanced the project, which transformed the new addition space in our home. Glennâ s â Remodeling Roadmapâ project management system kept us informed on next steps in the project and importantly, enabled our addition to be completed in the time-frame we wanted. Glenn has spent many years developing his network of subcontractors, which were reliable, friendly and did great work. We are very happy with our addition and the quality of the work that First Class delivered, and look forward to many years of good use! -- David Moskowitz cell: 202-280-0888 email:

5.0 William R. Mountainside, NJ

The business is a one stop shop. Very helpful in designing and coordinating colors and materials. They also did our deck, driveway, front walkway, and gutters. Wonderful results all-around.

5.0 Joe D. Berkeley Heights, NJ

It has been 18 years since the home remodeling and I am as pleased with the end result today as I was after it was first completed. I have not had one issue with any of the work done - kitchen remodel, family room addition, new basement and new deck. It was a fairly large job in my view and Glenn had it all figured out from start to finish. I am just so glad we choose him to do the job.

5.0 Chris I. East Brunswick, NJ

They say time is money, right? Well, before you begin your next project, hire a remodeling consultant! The cost is made up 10-fold by the value added throughout the process. Glenn took our original design plan, which we liked, and turned it into something we loved! He caught several design flaws and prevented us from building the wrong house, ultimately saving us thousands of dollars along the way. What started out as a dormered cape, turned into an amazing modern farmhouse with all the curb appeal we wanted and more.

5.0 David P. South Orange, NJ

Glenn and his team did a great job with my deck railings and skirting project. The skirting project required a great amount of attention to detail and Glenn was attentive to all of my aesthetic requests. glenn’s subcontractor Idier was also very nice and skilled. I would highly recommend First Class Building and Remodelling for any home improvement projects.

4.5 Ronald W. Berkeley Heights, NJ

I've used this company for several home projects (and one automotive project) for over 2 decades. Never had a problem.

5.0 Brigitte N. Summit, NJ

Glenn Hickman of First Class Building & Remodeling has recently replaced my old, very sick deck with a beautiful new one. I admired his attention to detail. There was no effort spared to make it as beautiful as it is now. It makes a big difference to the appearance of the house and is a pleasure to use everyday. For any other projects I might have, I will not hesitate to work with Glenn Hickman and his team again. Thank you for a great job Brigitte Nioche

5.0 Angie N. West Orange, NJ

Glenn has been great though the whole process. He took my vision and turned it into exactly what I wanted. He was able to show me a virtual drawing of what my renovation would look like before we even signed a contract. He provided a very detailed timeline and has stuck to that timeline. His crew of workers have been so polite and they clean up after everyday. There are no hidden costs, everything is itemized upfront. Glenn is very accessible and responds within the hour. We highly recommend First Class Building and Remodeling

5.0 Ann H. Scotch Plains, NJ

Working with Glenn, Anna and his team was a very seamless experience. They made great suggestions that were aesthetically appealing and cost efficient. We had a general idea of how we wanted our basement to look, but the finished product exceeded our expectations! They always met their contractual obligations, often ahead of schedule. Good craftsmanship, and good communication. We LOVE our new basement!
