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.

Andre Karam

Meet Andre Karam, the President of Sam Karam and Sons General Contractors. Andre originally started when he was only 15 years old, over 30 years ago! He started working for his father, who took him to work and taught him everything he knew about construction, customer service, and business. Andre took over the day-to-day operations in 2001. He enjoys working in this field and maintaining the business every day, which allows him to spend time with his wife and family. When he isn’t running things here, he enjoys skiing as well as exercising and other outdoor activities.

“I loved learning all the different things there were to do on jobs and most importantly spending the time with my dad, day in and day out.”

Construction Crew

Meet Luis, Angelo, and Fabian, the primary construction crew for Sam Karam & Sons. All three of these individuals are diversely talented carpenters who have worked with us since 2013. They are highly skillful, detailed, and extremely competent in performing any construction-related task very well. They all show immense pride in their work and will go above and beyond to get the job done right, usually exceeding customer expectations.

How It All Started

In 1974 our company’s founder, Sam Karam moved to America from Lebanon in search of a better life and future for his family. Sam began working 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 also knew the only way to create a successful business was to provide quality, honest, and knowledgeable service to customers and to do it right the first time.

Sam started by studying, apprenticing, and obtaining his Construction Supervisor license. He had no problem obtaining work on his own since he was very well-known locally in the industry. As time passed and the business flourished, Sam knew he would not be able to maintain his business alone. Therefore, in 2001 he entrusted his sons with the task of overseeing the day-to-day operations of this now family-owned and operated business. To this very day, we at Sam Karam and Sons continue to use Sam’s philosophy of putting customers first. Along with research, training, and implementation of the latest in energy-efficient building technology.

“Forty-five years after Sam Karam founded our company we remain devoted to providing our customers with the highest quality of service and workmanship. When hiring Sam Karam and Sons, you will see the same hospitality and skills which were instilled into our company from the very beginning.” – Andre Karam

“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.
