Meet Our Team
45 years after Sam Karam founded our company we’re still devoted to giving our customers the highest quality projects and workmanship. When hiring us you will see the same hospitality, service and skills instilled into our company from the start.
Meet Andre Karam, the President of Sam Karam and Sons General Contractors. Andre originally started work here when he was 15 over 30 years ago. He worked for his Dad, Sam Karam, who took him to work and taught him everything he knew about construction, customer service and business before Andre took over the day to day operations in 2001.
“I loved learning all the different things there was to do on all the jobs and most importantly spending the time with my dad day in and day out.”
Meet Luis, Angelo and Fabian, the primary construction crew for Sam Karam & Sons.
All 3 are diversely skilled carpenters, have worked with us for almost 10 years, and can perform any construction related task.
They always show immense pride in their work and will go above and beyond to get jobs done while exceeding customer expectations.
How It All Started
Over 45 years ago, our founder Sam Karam moved to America from Lebanon in search of a better life and future for his family. In 1965, Sam started work as a laborer for Rene Charbonneau Home Improvements of New Bedford, MA. Through his on-the-job experience, Sam knew he wanted to run his own construction company. He knew the only way to create a successful business was to provide quality, honest, and knowledgeable service to his customers and do it right the first time.
Sam started by studying, apprenticing, and obtaining his Construction Supervisor license in 1974. Sam had no issues getting jobs in the business, since he was already well-known in the local industry. As time passed and the business flourished, he knew he wouldn’t be able to continue the business by himself.
In 2001, Sam entrusted his sons with the task of overseeing the day-to-day operations of the business. To this day we continue to use his philosophy of customer first along with research, training, and implementation of the latest in energy efficient building technology.

“You Are The Best”
We have used Sam Karam & Sons over the years for a few different home improvement projects. From the office staff to the crew, everyone is super polite and professional. They tell us exactly what we need and don’t try to over sell us. They are one of the few contractors we’ve encountered that show up when they say they will, get the project done on time, and do an impeccable job cleaning up after themselves.
