Henry Kastner and his family came to St. Paul, Minnesota from Hamburg, Germany in 1885. Henry, a skilled mason, soon began plastering ceilings and walls as part of his business. Father taught son in the best of the old world traditions of craftsmanship. After several generations, plastering, drywall, and painting became Kastner family specialties.

Each generation handed down years of experience to the next, making the family owned business what it is today, a personable, experienced and reputable company. Whether old or new home or commercial building, their experience in the industry has the flexibility to meet your needs.

Quality craftsmanship, honesty, and customer satisfaction are trademarks the Kastner business has maintained for five generations, and that legacy continues.

Kastner Restoration helped create a safer environment for my son who is disabled. They handled all aspects of the home modification from new doors for our basement/house mechanicals, to a gate extension to prevent elopement, to a beautiful carriage door for safety from access to the basement stairs.

If I had any questions, Kastner would respond in a timely manner. If I had concerns, they would address them until I was satisfied. The crew also was professional and friendly yet not intrusive.

I would recommend this company for all home renovation needs!
