About Blake Contracting

blake-showcase-1-2Blake Contracting has been performing historic window restoration for more than fifteen years now, specializing in wood, steel and aluminum window restoration and glazing.  Naturally, these windows contain asbestos and lead paint and require qualified, regulatory compliance for abatement.  Our projects range in size from several thousand to more than one million dollars.  The size of your project bears no limitation on Blake’s commitment to quality, efficiency, and the absolute basics of getting the job  completed right the first time.

  • Blake Contracting estimated and proposed on 42 commercial projects in 2012. 
  • Our average job is $ 41,000 and more than half of our projects are valued over $50,000.
  • We completed major restoration work on the First National Bank Building (originally constructed circa 1918) a residential apartment loft conversion where more than 565 windows have been given another generation of viable use.
Blake Contracting clients benefit from the single sourcing of multiple trades, whether it is a historic building renovation or a demolition/abatement project on a commercial site.  Think of Blake Contracting as your one stop Subcontractor for all your project’s environmental hazard abatement, demo, window and restoration needs.   Blake is accountable and quality driven  - maximizing our capabilities to effectively utilize materials and time/labor economies.  We consistently deliver quality workmanship on-time.

Blake Contracting embraces a comprehensive approach to every project, providing expertise and construction overview consideration beyond the anticipated scope of work.  Our clients turn to Blake Contracting when unequalled performance, efficiency and above all, safety is paramount to a project’s success.   Blake Contracting has the capability to meet your aggressive completion schedule.  We are a full service firm, focused on achieving client expectations, not simply what has been expected from other Subcontractors.
