  • We have known WKR Builders for twelve years. Over that period they were responsible for a major expansion of our home in Cape May Harbor village as well as numerous small renovation projects. The quality and timeliness of their work has been superb, and delivered consistently on budget. On a personal level they have been a pleasure to deal with, and we can wholeheartedly recommend their services. Dave & Wayne are truly wonderful to work with.

  • It pays to go local whenever it comes to doing business. As a small business owner myself, this is a concept I strongly believe in. I hired Wayne/Bubba of WKR to do some major improvements to my beachfront home in Cape May. The job required not only great carpenters, but plumbers, electricians, painters and landscapers, too. Wayne coordinated the various service providers superbly, and hired only competent, effective contractors to work at my house. I would strongly recommend his firm for small and large projects.


  • Updating our existing home, WKR developed creative solutions and ten was able to deliver with a team that was always responsive, whose work was consistently first rate.

  • I am a home owner of a beach house in Avalon and used WKR Construction for remodeling/renovating my home. It was all done long distance and I cannot say enough about the job they did. The attention to detail and care was beyond my expectations-they treated my house and job as though it was their own. No request, question or changes were to difficult and they were happy to do whatever was needed. I had a very tight timetable and they delivered on their promises. The end result far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend them to anybody and use them again for any job I might have.


  • WKR has totally remodeled our house with 100% satisfaction. Their professionalism, on time delivery, spectacular detail, willingness to adjust, is just a few of the positives to make your dream house possible. Best of all, the WKR team are great people who are honest and care about their customers.


  • I’ve relied on WKR since I purchased my Cape May home in 2006, for everything from housecleaning to property management and major renovations for my nearly 100 year-old home. I trust WKR to do the job right every time. Their field personnel and office staff are a pleasure to work with – professional, honest and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate to call on them for any job large or small.


  • We have owned a home in Cape May for ten years. During this period our property has been almost completely refurbished from stem to stern as they say. Many contractors and trades have assisted in this endeavor. Without any doubt WKR Custom Builders satisfied all our construction needs in a timely manner with CARING skilled professionals. The quality of work performed by WKR was superior in every aspect throughout the experience. I give them the highest recommendation and they are 100% TRUSTWORTHY!


  • We chose WKR Builders to build our home in Cape May after interviewing several other builders. The quality and fine workmanship of WKR was clearly evidenced in the homes we toured but what convinced us to choose WKR was Wayne’s (Bubba) attention to detail, personal integrity and ease with which to work. Bubba understood the look I wanted and artistically we worked well together. The GM was always accessible and was also fabulous to work with...making the whole process enjoyable-no small task for building a custom home!


  • WKR has the nicest, friendliest crews around! Dave and Eduard are mechanical and carpentry wizards – I don’t think there is anything they can’t do! Our house is a showplace! Thank you for a job well-done!


  • In September of 2007, I met with Wayne, owner of WKR Custom Builders, to discuss improving and updating my Cape May condo. Wayne showed up on time, listened to my wishes, took time to do a careful walk through and offered reasonable suggestions for improvements. His estimate was accurate and held no cost surprises and the project started and finished on time. Wayne is honest, reliable, up-front and takes pride in the finished product as if it were his own.

    Working with the crew of WKR was a pleasant venture, knowing that all discussions and changes were told to Wayne, who was always on top of the project and on-site every day. It is apparent to me that his crew, including the office personnel, is more like family working together and that everyone working on my home had my best interests in mind. Any contractor that Wayne recommended worked well with me and with WKR so that all decisions were made calmly and timely so there were no delays. It was such a good experience that I believe I can now call Wayne a friend.

    The finishing touches, such as the rounded corners and crown molding, that WKR does automatically, showcases the craftsmanship throughout my home, and has garnered many compliments by visitors. The innovative way they used created my ideal living space and gave me all I desired regardless of the space constraints they had to work within. It is the care, commitment and professionalism that hallmarks a job done by WKR Custom Builders and someone having a house built or updated would be lucky to have WKR do the job. If and when I remodel my home again, Wayne will be the person I call, WKR will be the company I choose, no need for other bids!
