If a solid roof is what maintains the integrity of a building, the solidity of the Bregenzer family is what has maintained the integrity of their venerable building contracting business. Founded in 1919 by William, Nicholas and Charles Bregenzer, for three generations Bregenzer Brothers, Inc. has specialized in old world craftsmanship and high quality building work. Each new generation of Bregenzers has apprenticed and ultimately joined the firm, adding new energy and cohesiveness to the family enterprise. The Bregenzers are proud to announce that many members of the 4th generation have dabbled in the family business as well.
In 1991, Mike Bregenzer took over sole ownership and operation of the family firm from his father Bill Jr. and since then he has concentrated on high-end slate and copper roofing jobs with his brother Bill III. From their facility in Ewing, equipped with a full complement of slate and copper cutting and shaping equipment, including a computerized metal break and cutters custom designed by Mike himself, Bregenzer Brothers can apply their finely-honed craftsmanship and technical expertise to roofs of any size and level of difficulty. Recently, Mike's sister has joined the company and acts as the operations manager for the growing organization.
Today, Bregenzer Brothers can count third-generation family members as among its most technically proficient and experienced principals. The range and artistry of their copper and slate roofing is evident throughout many fine campuses in central New Jersey where for over 20 years Bregenzer Brothers has positioned itself as one of the most highly respected roofing contractors in the region.
