In 1983, Ray Walsh started Sand Bar Contractors, Inc. and began to renovate homes in Brooklyn and Queens, New York. Over the next 20 years, he continued to develop his construction company renovating and building dozens of quality custom homes and servicing several local beach clubs on the Rockaway peninsula.

In 2002, his son Ray Jr. joined him at Sand Bar and together they continued to provide highly satisfied customers with their dream homes. They developed strong business relationships with local architects, interior design representatives, and a variety of other professionals.

Both father and son became well known and respected throughout the areas that they serve for their consistently good workmanship and the timely completion of each home as well as their success at fostering warm and wonderful customer relationships.

Ray Sr. brings an expertise based on years of building experience, a keen knowledge of expediting construction, and an excellent ability to guide the building process. Ray Jr. contributes an understanding of what individual customers not only want but also need in their custom home planning, an exceptional eye for detail and beautiful design, and an invigorating up-to-date view of each aspect of the building project. Together they have formed a cohesive team with a solid ability to meet the individual needs of each and every customer.

In addition to the management team, over the years Sand Bar brought together a group of top-notch craftsman in the fields of carpentry and plumbing. The work of these skilled men has generated the beautiful kitchens, bathrooms and built-ins found in Sand Bar homes. They help to create the custom homes that each family dreams about, enjoys and appreciates. Also, a professional and friendly office team supports each Sand Bar endeavor.

Presently, father and son together with their talented crew are working diligently to help their friends and neighbors to rebuild their homes and their lives following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. At this time of uncertainty and chaos, they are profoundly humbled by the trust these customers have placed in the hands of Sand Bar Contractors.
