About Us

chimney crewJ.T. Kirwin Co. is a building and renovation company located in Newport, R.I. We have been renovating homes and businesses on Aquidneck Island all of our adult lives. Our scope of projects in the residential market range from building a new home to all aspects of home renovation. These projects range from additions and dormers to exterior siding to basement renovation, custom tile, kitchens and bathrooms, decks and custom finish carpentry.

Our commercial projects have ranged from complete restaurant kitchen renovations, marina and dock work, to high end historical exteriors with custom mill work and precision detail. We have also sub-contracted on several local commercial projects for some of the big contractors on the island.

We have a six man carpentry crew drawing skills from all different backgrounds in the construction industry and we also have a two-man, licensed plumbing crew with 20 years experience in the plumbing industry. This unique combination of skills allows us be among the most professional bathroom and kitchen renovation specialists on Aquidneck Island.

In the past 14 years we have renovated hundreds of bathrooms on Aquidneck Island, Jamestown, North Kingston and Providence. Although bathrooms have become our mill wall casespecialty, we love to build. Nothing gets us more excited than an opportunity to completely┬árenovate someone’s home. We have dealt with a lot of particular clients over the years and we know how to listen to the customer to ensure their complete satisfaction. References will not be an issue.

We are a fifth generation family on Aquidneck Island. The Kirwin’s immigrated to Newport from Ireland at the end of the 19th century. They brought with them their skills as contractors and masons. They were directly involved in much of the beautiful stone architecture that Newport has become famous for. As their families grew they continued to serve Aquidneck Island in all areas of construction and in the fire service. Today, the Kirwin family still thrives on Aquidneck Island. Our love of the construction trades stems from a long legacy of strong hearted people with a passion to use their hands to create beautiful things. Kirwin Bros. is committed to offering top quality, professional customer service in the home renovation field on Aquidneck Island and in all of Rhode Island.
