If I could give 10 stars I would!! Everyone warned me that building a custom home would be a nightmare of a process – I should be prepared for excessive delays, lack of responsiveness, being over budget, etc. They could not have been more wrong, as EVERY aspect of working with Gary Woerner and his son Rob was impeccable. Gary and Rob always responded almost instantly which impressed me every time. Gary even picked up my call during his son’s wedding – just incredible customer service – so above and beyond! The whole process was so smooth and every subcontractor that Gary uses was also so impressive, as the second they heard I was referred to by Gary, they immediately stepped up and could not have been more helpful and responsive!

The quality of Gary’s work is second-to-none as so many of his “standard” features are usually upgrades with other builders. We just moved into our home this past week and there were a couple of minor issues and still Gary or Rob was available at a moment’s notice to resolve.

My neighbor lives in Brigantine all year, so she watched the construction first hand. She constantly praised how clean the worksite was, how Gary or Rob was always there to make sure work was done and just how productive and hard-working the crew always was!

I never felt like I was bothering them with my many questions and there was never a delay or lag with any changes! I completely recommend Woerner Builders!

We had nothing but a great experience with Gary and the whole team. We have been in Brigantine since 2007 in a small bungalow and made the choice last year to rebuild. The whole process was smooth and stress free. Gary was always available for any questions we had- 24/7! We looked at several homes on the island, but Gary’s quality of work and reputation made Woerner Builders the best choice to build our home. Our project took 8 months from beginning to end and now that we are all moved it we couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Woerner Builders to anyone building a home.

Woerner custom homes did an amazing job building our beach home in Brigantine. Gary and his son Rob were so easy to work with from start to finish. They were on top of every detail of the home throughout the entire process and constantly communicating with us. We greatly appreciated their attention to detail and making sure everything was perfect. They completed the project in under 9 months from demo to move in. The pricing and upgrades were very fair and reasonable. They have a tremendous team of contractors that do great work. We highly recommended Gary without reservation to anyone considering building in Brigantine.

Gary and Robbie are truly exceptional professionals who were able deliver absolute perfection, on time and on budget. We had worked separately with an architect and came to Gary with the plans in hand. Gary worked closely with our architect to build an extremely complex three-story home on time, and on budget. From the exceptional quality of the framing, to the HVAC, to the electrical, to the finest finishing details, Gary delivered 10 out of 10 times.

We are not local to the area and building any home, let alone one 100 miles away can seem like a daunting task. However, Gary kept in constant contact with us, including weekends. He was always accessible, with a level of responsiveness and care, that like the quality of his homes, is peerless.

We are so thrilled and grateful to have been able to team with Gary and Robbie, they’re simply awesome!!

Cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Woerner Builders. First met Gary Woerner in 2001 when he built my mom’s home in Brigantine. In 2007 when we decided we were ready to build our home, I did intereview a handful of builders – both on and off the island. It became very evident that Woerner Builders was hands down the best choice! The experience was nothing but a dream come true for us. The entire process, start to finish, surpassed all of our expectations. Gary delivered our home as promised – on time! Anytime anyone asks me who I would recommend to build a home, hands down, it’s Woerner Builders! There is no one I trust more.


Kris Triolo

Best experience with a builder we have ever had. We are so happy we chose Woerner Custom Builders to renovate our house as we are going from part-time to full-time residents. It was a pleasure to work with Gary and his whole team. He is professional, honest, dependable and communication was excellent from start to finish. He actually answered the phone every time we called! His attention to detail shows in his excellent workmanship and quality construction. We made a lot of changes along the way that never posed a problem for him. We would highly recommend Woerner Custom Builders to anyone looking to renovate or build a new home. You will not be disappointed.


Wayne Connelly

Besides being on budget and on time the quality of work was excellent. The overall experience in dealing with the Woerner TEAM was a pleasure and their communication skills is second to none. Response time for questions, changes or concerns was instant! I would recommend them to anyone that needs new construction, an addition or renovations. We will definitely use them in the future.

Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
TOP NOTCH! From all of Gary’s contractors (Nelson, JJ Total, Breeze Electric, Jimmy and his tile guys, Innovative Landscaping) and especially Rob Woerner, have been professional, responsive and outstanding workmanship. Gary Woerner is the BEST builder along the Jersey shore!


Craig & Michelle Palko

After interviewing several builders to build our dream house we selected Woerner Custom Builders and this was the best decision we could have possibly made. Gary and his son Robbie were great to work with. Gary was a big help as we customized a floor plan to be our very own. He was always available whenever we needed him, which was VERY important to us. He would answer our call and if he didn’t know the answer right then he would get back to us later that day.

Building a house is stressful between creating the perfect floor plan and selections, but every step of the process Gary was there to guide us. We knew what was happening, where we were in the process and when we would need to have selections completed. Great communicator from start to finish.

We are extremely happy with our house and would highly recommend Gary and Woerner Custom Builders to anyone looking to build their home!


Bob Kramer

Gary Woerner has constructed two homes for us. Both were complete in a timely manner and on budget. And we are very happy with the quality. Even a decade after construction Gary is always available to offer advice and recommendations on repairs and maintenance. He is a great person who builds a great house.


John Di Joseph

We are very happy we chose Woerner Custom Builders to build our new home. Our home turned out exactly the way we wanted it. The floor plan we chose is perfect for us and within our budget. We did add extras and Gary was very fair with the cost.

Woerner did an amazing job and we continually get compliments on the beauty and construction of our home. Gary’s attention to detail and perfection is reflected in our beautiful home. Throughout the entire process, it was a pleasure to work with Gary and his son Robbie. Gary is always available for questions or concerns and he is continually on site to ensure the job gets done accordingly and own time.

We would highly recommend Woerner Custom Builders to anyone looking to build a new home.

Stewart Bruder

Our original home was getting tired and so we decided it was time to build a new one. After checking with several builder in Brigantine we decided to choose Gary Woerner and we are so happy we did. Simply put, Gary says what he will do and does what he says. We love our home and it is built very well and after many years it still looks and feels like the first day we moved in. We have found Gary to be very knowledgeable and gets things done on time and within budget. Dependable builders are very hard to find but we Gary fits the bill.


Del Olivetti

While Gary Woerner was building our house he promptly took care of any question that we had throughout the whole project. He builds a home that is the finest quality, great workmanship, affordable pricing and totally complete. We would highly recommend him to anyone contemplating building a new house.


Eve D’Onofrio

The best builder in Brigantine. We met with several builders and he was the most professional. He is honest, trustworthy and dependable. Three years later and he still answers his phone and takes care things outside of warranty. His subcontractors are loyal and will do anything for him. He stayed within budget and guided us every step of the way. A long term resident of Brigantine, Gary knows this island. He is a true local and his homes are great quality. We feel so lucky to have found him.


Richard Whitworth

Not only did Gary and his crew build us our new house, they built us our new home.
Gary was on time and in budget while finishing our new home with all the top of the line appliances and granite counters along with hardwood flooring.
I can’t say enough about the workmanship and attention to detail.
Best of all, the whole time Gary was building our new home right up until today, two years later I never had a problem or question that was not handled in a professional manner.
I have never worked with a contractor that always answered their phone, every time.
If you are looking for someone to build your new home, call Gary first.
You will not be disappointed.


Marsha Fogler

After our first meeting with Gary Woerner, Woerner Custom Builders, it became very clear that he was very knowledgeable and eager to get things done right.
We were able to talk or text with Gary and Rob at any time with our concerns or questions we had throughout the construction process. We are very happy with the service and care we received from Woerner Custom Builders and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a custom built home.


Frank Pino
It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Gary Woerner/Woerner Custom Builders for any home building needs or for purchasing one of his spec homes. We were looking to build a home in Brigantine and Gary Woerner came recommended to us by a local realtor as one of the most reputable (and busy) builders in Brigantine. He made the home building process easy/enjoyable as he had fantastic floor plans from which to choose and an architect to tweek changes to our specs. His design team had chosen beautiful upgraded amenities/appointments (flooring, granite, tile, kitchen, baths lighting, etc) that were so nice for their spec homes, we didn’t need, nor want to change anything. (Although that option was available if we wanted) Anytime we called him, had questions, or changes, he got back to us right away and has been a pleasure to work with! Whenever we call for punch list items his men are there within 24 hrs (led by his son Robbie who is a complete pleasure to work with too) . We love our new home and are very happy! Highly recommend them!


Bob Marino

As a banker who lends money to builders, I can say that Gary Woerner is a true professional. He built my home for exactly the amount we discussed and within the exact timeframe. He kept me informed on the progress of the project weekly and he often called me daily when necessary. When I had questions, he was available 7 days a week by phone or in person. The bank’s home inspector for construction draws commented to me how impressed he was with regard to Woerner Construction’s quality of work. He also commented on how clean the worksite was kept on a daily basis. The work always met or exceeded all of the new up to date construction codes for a beach home. As you would expect, as a homeowner I made certain modifications along the way. Gary accommodated my changes and also made suggestions of his own. I would recommend Gary Woerner and Woerner Construction to anyone building a home in Brigantine and the Jersey Shore.


Kevin Stern

We decided in 2016 that our Brigantine house was too small for our growing family and grandchildren, so we hired Gary Woerner to build us a new one. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. He made the process stress free from the beginning until the end. He is also a perfectionist and believes that his product should be perfect. And Gary is always there to help with any issues; even now 2 years later. This is when you really learn about a business owner. When that business owner is quick to respond to issues years after the sale, then you know that your hired the right guy.


Chuck Davis

Woerner Custom Builders is simply the best! Gary and his team of consummate professionals designed and built our dream home at the Jersey shore. Throughout the process, we were never disappointed. From the project management, materials, value and commitment to quality and communication, Gary and his team went above and beyond. It’s been a couple of years since we moved in and our home still looks and feels brand new. We are confident that we selected the best builder! If you’re looking to build your dream house in Brigantine, look no further than Woerner Custom Builders.
