About DLScharf & Co. 

The Company

David L. Scharf & Co. has been in the residential building and woodworking business since 1986, and incorporated since 1996.  Most of our work has been on older homes in Rockland County river villages and a variety of NYC Landmarks projects.  Our custom cabinetry, construction management and office operations are housed in our 1,600-sq.-ft. shop in downtown Nyack. 

Our fully equipped shop handles all of our woodworking needs, from small runs of custom molding profiles to thousands of linear feet of custom paneling. 

The Crew

Our employees are experienced and trained professionals, dedicated to providing the highest level of service and craftsmanship to our clients.  We reinforce our company culture with individual coaching, weekly staff meeting and off-site training.  Our crew regularly attends the Journal of Light Construction conference each spring in Providence, RI, for continuing education on the latest industry technology.
