“A Trubuilders are A+! My family and I had the pleasure of working with this amazing team! Gary and company worked so hard to get our second story completed in just 80 days!! From start to finish, he kept us informed of progress and was always available when we had a question. Gina was a pleasure to deal with and was constantly making sure we were happy!! Gary Sr. paid such attention to detail and worked around the clock at the end to finish so that we could be in for Christmas! The quality of their work is impeccable. We couldn’t be happier, our house looks amazing!!”
Ed and Laura Buldowski


“Gary Olson and the A TruBuilders team did a great job with the raise and renovation of our house in Brick Township, NJ. The work quality and customer service was excellent, and they were able to expertly navigate the gauntlet of local and State regulations to get the project completed on schedule. In fact, they did such a nice job that we hired them to build an addition over our garage, which they have since expeditiously completed. I would highly recommend Gary Olson and the A TruBuilders team to anyone who needs residential or commercial construction services.”
Peter Van den Kooy and Family


“Gary and his crew did everything they promised and never forgot a suggestion. Came in on time and on budget.”
Jay G.


“I have known Gary Olson for 35 years. Over these years we have been involved in major projects. The first, 1990 in Seaside Heights, we took a dilapidated building and totally renovated it. Gary did all the structural repair. He made a very difficult assignment appear easy and non-challenging, and he also did all the finish work. His company’s ability to not only save us money, but finish on time impressed me so much that they built a restaurant for me in Wildwood, NJ called “Jumbos”. Once again, Gary made me look like a hero as he was able to follow the restaurant designer’s architect’s design perfectly. Gary renovated a building called “Curley’s Fries” in North Wildwood, NJ. Some of the restoration was cleverly done, making it possible to use the pre-existing shell, saving us hundreds thousands of dollars. Gary Olson and his team’s commitment to getting things done in a timely manner without sacrificing quality is impressive, I have enjoyed working with Gary. It always nice to have Gary on the job, because he always finishes ahead of schedule. This was just to name a few, but many projects completed and much more to come.”
Wayne Cimorelli, Boardwalk, Seaside Heights, NJ


“I would like to sincerely thank State Farm for recommending Gary Olson to perform the work on my damaged home. Mr. Olson took care of and handled the entire situation impeccably. He made what began as an agonizing ordeal into one that ran smoothly, efficiently and rapidly. Mr. Olson should be continually recommended to perform contract work on homes, which have been damaged to State Farm customers. I rate him A+ Contactor and I extremely pleased with his work and our final outcome. Thank you once again for recommending such a competent contractor to restore my home to what it once was prior to this horrible occurrence.”
Mario Santulli, Clifton, NJ


“My name is John Saddy and I own most of the buildings along the Boulevard in Seaside Heights, NJ. I have used Gary Olson for over 25 years on many projects. Some of these have included major renovations at the Bamboo Bar, Club XS, Temptations, Beignet’s, Fat Cat Café, Karma and The Courtyard Pub. My projects always had serious time deadlines which Mr. Olson met every time. I would highly recommend Gary Olson on any major construction project.”
John Saddy, Seaside Heights, NJ


“Last spring we had a fire at our home. Needless to say it was a devastating experience. With no contractors known to us in the construction field, we used the contractor referral list provided by State Farm Insurance. From that list we chose a local contractor by the name of Gary Olson. Although it was an extremely trying experience, the outcome of our new home eases the pain. We are very happy with the quality of the workmanship done by Gary Olson. Gary was easy to work with and was fair in his prices. His workers were prompt and courteous. I would also like to mention your State Farm representative was fair and extremely diligent in the processing of this claim.”
Sandy Casertano, West Orange, NJ


“I am writing to let you know how pleased I was with Gary Olson’s work. He rebuilt my condominium at Cherrywood Circle Brick, NJ, which was destroyed by a fire. It was a very stressful time for my wife and I, and we were terrified this process would be long and painful. Gary made the process easier for us. He was in constant contact with us to ensure that it was rebuilt exactly how we wanted it. There were no unnecessary time delays because he made sure he was doing it right ahead of time. He also let us know he would touch up anything that needed it. He really did a beautiful job. I’d also like to mention Dave Gauthier who helped expedite the process. Once again, I’d like to thank you for hiring Gary Olson to rebuild our condominium.”
Michael Bousanti, Brick, NJ


“We never dreamed we would be in this SANDY situation, and certainly never dreamed we would have the awesome chance to build a new house. We truly feel, had we not found you, this may not have happened for us.

We are so grateful to you, and for the integrity of your work, as well as your integrity as a human being. I hope you scored adequate financial remuneration from our project, but even more importantly, I hope you scored the knowledge that you made a major difference in our lives, by helping us as “SANDY victims.”

Simply put, we LOVE our house, and we thank you so sincerely for putting up with all the township BS, and for building it for us.

“Our relationship” is more than just “builder-client.” You have demonstrated a very caring and in fact loving manner to us, and have seen us through these dark almost three years since SANDY. You not only built us a dream home, you and your team (Papa Gary included) built it with the most amazing TLC, and we could never ever ask for more!!

Our little Bar A party, was just a small token of our deepest appreciation to you and your gang of fabulous people and hard workers. We hope as we begin to actually live at 108 Hillcrest once again, you and your beautiful Gina will visit us often, and share good times and spirits on the deck you built us. Our doors will always be open to you Gary!!”
John Henry Lambert, Neptune, NJ


“Our home was totally destroyed during Superstorm Sandy in 2012. As with many families in the Jersey Shore area, we were left to figure things out for ourselves. We were introduced to Gary Olson and A TruBuilders, and immediately knew he was the builder for us. Gary and his team are no nonsense people and get the job done. Gary went above and beyond to help us navigate the permit process and our rather difficult township officials, and gave us a beautiful new home! We cannot speak highly enough about the team at A TruBuilders. You will never worry with Gary in charge!”
Lee Ann Newland


“Thanks to A TruBuilders you made it possible for our mom to move back into her home July 4th, just in time to enjoy the summer in Ocean Gate, NJ.

Our mom’s home was substantially damaged by Hurricane Sandy the end of October 2012. Her first floor had to be completely gutted. 218 Newport Avenue was built by my family in the mid 1950s for her parents and it is where mom has lived the last 12 years. Mom is 83 years “young” and handled this life event better than those much younger than her.

From the time we signed the contract to go forward with A TruBuilders to be our general contractor until mom moved back, you made the process very seamless. A TruBuilders is not just a general contractor; you took us through the entire process and provided invaluable assistance from review of the insurance claim, value engineering, renovation, picking out flooring, kitchen, bathroom, trim, colors and more. You are a true full service company providing disaster recovery.

We took your recommendation and used ProScope who provided us a second opinion of the damage. Thru our dealings with ProScope, we received substantially more money from our insurance company. We had no idea there was a company that provided such service. When you have not experienced this before, you are at the mercy of the “experts” and tend to be “satisfied” with their findings. We were very happy that our insurance company accepted ProScope’s findings. This is another example of A TruBuilders being a full sevice company providing disaster recovery.

A TruBuilders understood the importance of us needing to get mom back in her home and the budget we had to work within. You really listened to mom and knew what was important to her and kept us on track when we (her children) wanted to make changes that were not what “mom wanted!” She was very nervous about the new tankless water heater that replaced her old furnace and water tank. You made her feel very comfortable that there would be plenty of water and nice warm heat in the winter; she is now a believer!

Our family thanks you very much for the multitude of services you provided us from our initial meetings, signing the contract, obtaining additional insurance money that we never would have received if A TruBuilders had not been our contractor, to moving mom back to a well renovated home!”
Kathleen, Ocean Gate, NJ


“ATI provided a full-service house rehabilitation for me after damage from Super Storm Sandy. They were professional, extremely helpful & did a great job. I felt like they took the project on as if it were their own & were genuinely concerned about getting me back in my home.”

“A TruBuilders were an absolute pleasure to work with. From the first communication through the completion of our project, their communication has been great. The finished product is so much better than even we imagined it could be. I recommend A TruBuilders to anyone looking for a better construction experience.”
