Founded in 1989 by Dean Henninger, D.W. Henninger Construction has been recognized as a leading builder of custom homes and remodeling projects. Acting as a General Contractor, the entire Henninger team is known to exceed client expectations, leading to a steady stream of testimonials and referral clients.

Over the past two decades, Henninger has managed the following projects: kitchens, bathrooms, room additions, entire home renovation, even complete construction of homes. Regardless of scope, Henninger approaches each project with the same foundation of principals: strong design aesthetics, comprehensive product options, sound project management, and a commitment to craftsmanship.

  • Design Aesthetics: With 20+ years of Bay Area experience, Henninger understands the many architectural quirks unique to Bay Area communities, making it easy to elaborate and integrate with established design aesthetics.
  • Product Options: Henninger is truly unique in being a single-source stop for design, remodeling, and product resources. Cabinetry, countertops, appliances, and plumbing fixtures are all available options for your project, and Henninger assists with selection, delivery, even vendor communication if there’s a problem.
  • Project Management: Project management is essential to delivering a good customer experience. Henninger prioritizes project management to the same degree as design and crafting. Henninger is unique in using progress billing — a system that only charges for services following completion rather than pre-paying weeks or months before it starts.
  • Craftsmanship: Henninger’s team of carpenters bring the best combination of experience and expertise to the table, but they offer much more than technical proficiency — by working with true craftsmen, Henninger projects balance design and functionality for maximum results on each and every project, regardless of scope.

Our service areas: Oakland, Pleasanton, Livermore, Walnut Creek, Fremont, and surrounding cities. Projects in San Francisco and San Jose are also feasible — contact us for more information.

In Dean’s Words

You can call me old-fashioned; I believe in integrity first and I do what I say with absolute commitment. Every day, my goal is to provide clients with exceptional customer service and quality workmanship. We promise to make sure your project runs smoothly and efficiently.
