Originally from the town of Paul Smiths in the Adirondack Mountain region of New York, Glenster F. Sawyer, a third-generation carpenter, moved to Rochester in 1954 to find work in construction. In 1958, after working for others for several years, Glen decided to started his own remodeling company. G.F. Sawyer & Sons, Inc. was formed. In the beginning, Glen’s two oldest sons worked for the company, along with several other employees throughout the years.

In 1975, Glen retired and his two oldest sons purchased the business. In 1985 Tom, the oldest son purchased the remaining shares and became the sole owner of G.F Sawyer and Sons Inc. In 2011, after 35 years of success in construction, Tom retired and passed along the business to his son, David. Not one to sit idle, Tom still works part time for G.F. Sawyer & Sons and remains an officer of the company.

G.F. Sawyer & Sons, Inc. is currently owned and operated by David Sawyer, oldest grandson of Glenster F. Sawyer. David began working for the company during summer breaks as a teenager, and has 30+ years of experience in construction. Over the last 50 years, G.F Sawyer & Sons, Inc. has become known in the Greater Rochester NY area as a family-owned business providing a high-quality product at a reasonable price. David is committed to continuing that tradition!
