NEW BRITAIN - After more than three decades in business, Jack of All Trades Remodeling Co. continues to grow as it is now selling kitchen cabinet lines from mid-range to high-quality cabinets.

Jack of All Trades is a full-service remodeling company that does everything from economical projects, carpentry and tile to high-end bathrooms and kitchens.

The company is a family business, owned by Dan St. Laurent and his son, Danny St. Laurent.

Jack of All Trades Remodeling is a division of SL Associates.

Together the two companies remodel, develop and buy and sell properties in addition to the new kitchen cabinet business.

“For the past year and now we have been doing a lot of property developments,” Dan St. Laurent said. “We are buying a lot of properties and we are developing and renovating them and then we are putting them back in the market for resale. We’ve been expanding and we are growing with our remodeling company. It goes hand in hand with Jack of All Trades Remodeling Company. That’s why we are able to expand so for both companies we’ve been expanding.”

According to St. Laurent, the reason his company decided to take on the cabinet business is that most of the renovations required new cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms. St. Laurent is happy the business is taking a different direction and he owes it to his son Danny, he said.

“It’s because of him. His energy is really making a big difference in the direction we are heading,” St. Laurent said.

Jack of All Trades Remodeling Co. has quality as one of its most important values.

“That’s the number one thing, the quality of our work, and basically we work on the properties like we would in our own home,” St. Laurent said. “That’s what really separates us from most of these other contractors or developers. We really care. We are honest and we treat people like they are our family and they treat us the same way. We have a pretty large customer base.”

St. Laurent started the business 33 years ago with his brother, Timmy St. Laurent. Dan is a mechanical engineer and Timmy was a chemical engineer, but because they went through layoffs, they decided to take on their own business.

“Ever since then we’ve been a staple in the Greater Hartford area,” St. Laurent said. “New Britain is our home base, but we’ve been around for a while and everybody knows us, which is really nice. We have a really good reputation.”

Timmy died in 2006 and soon after, St. Laurent’s son, Danny, joined the business.
