1954: Dick Gilman opens up a hardware store in San Francisco and receives much success.

1970’s: Due to the changing needs of his clients, Dick Gilman switched gears and converted the store into a window and door screen company.

1980’s: Dick Gilman sold the business to Larry Lowenthal and this is when a true transformation began.

Larry had previous experience working with general contractors who were working on remodeling homes throughout San Francisco. He felt that he could provide additional services by offering kitchen and bathroom cabinets to the same contractors that were purchasing screens from him. It would save them time, be of convenience and provide one point of contact for multiple services.


As word spread, Larry realized the need for a larger space to display the various cabinets and more specialized service. He moved the store to its current 5000 sq. ft. location on Bayshore Blvd. and hired qualified kitchen designers to further assist contractors and home owners with their kitchen and bathroom remodels. Gilmans Screens was now Gilmans Screens and Kitchens.

1990’s: Gilmans continued to grow and the first satellite location was opened. Due to several circumstances, that location closed but soon opened doors to more locations throughout the Bay Area.

2000’s: Today, Gilmans Kitchens and Baths has a total of 4 locations and over 30 employees located in San Francisco, San Rafael, San Mateo (formerly located in Foster City), and Mountain View.

While staying true to its origins by still providing window and door screen services, Gilmans also offers turn-key solutions to clients and contractors alike. Gilmans offers full service remodeling to homeowners, while providing cabinetry and parts to contractors. GK+B works with all allied professionals and can design your kitchen, bath, laundry, office or any room that needs cabinetry.

The Gilmans Design Build Team provides a turn-key solution by offering full remodeling services. As your General Contractor, the Design Build Team can remodel your kitchen, bathroom, and any additional spaces in your home, including room additions and build-out
