Brannigan Home Improvement was established in 1986 by Charles Brannigan Lachner. This company started out building new homes and additions, which slowly turned into historic restoration. Between the research of past home models and our molding machine, we have been able to continue the original historic look of these homes. Brannigan started most of its work around Flemington, NJ where we have been a part of restoring the towns historic homes and recently built homes.
