Our Story

A Mukwonago Family Business Since 1972

For over 50 years,


…Urban Herriges & Sons, Inc. has been a pioneer in the remodeling industry. Owned and operated by the Herriges family in Mukwonago, Urban Herriges & Sons began remodeling homes in 1972. Today, the Herriges team still strives for new and better ways to serve its customers.


The Herriges family settled in Wisconsin from Germany in 1846, but it was Phil Herriges who became the first builder from the family to start a business; Phil Herriges, Incorporated, which opened in Milwaukee, 1927. He was followed in business by his son, Urban, who moved the business to Mukwonago in 1972. Eventually, Urban was joined by his sons, Dean and Bob. Hence the company name, “Urban Herriges & Sons, Inc.” As a family, they continued the remodeling tradition and are now succeeded by Julie and Lisa, Dean Herriges’ daughters, who own and run the modern-day business.


Four generations of longevity and expertise provide quality workmanship from start to finish. Expert design showcased with the latest 3-D technology, a licensed interior designer, highly trained journeyman carpenters, and precise scheduling by a full-time project manager are just a few things that Urban Herriges & Sons has to offer to make your remodeling experience truly special. No matter the scope of the project, Urban Herriges & Sons offer their unique hands-on services for jobs of all sizes, from small bathrooms to extensive 1st and 2nd story additions.


Urban Herriges & Sons serves the Waukesha and Milwaukee counties, including Mukwonago, East Troy, Eagle, Muskego, Dousman, Delafield, and New Berlin.
