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 a valuable service by offering kitchen and bathroom cabinets to the same contractors that were purchasing screens from him. It would save the contractors time, provide convenience, and ultimately establish Gilmans as a one-stop shop for multiple services.
As word spread, Larry soon realized the need for a larger space to display the various cabinets and more specialized services. He moved the store to its current 5000 sq. ft. location on Bayshore Blvd. and hired qualified kitchen designers to further assist contractors and homeowners with their kitchen and bathroom remodels. Gilmans Screens was now officially 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 have 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.
Gilmans stills stays true to its origins by providing window and door screen services, but by offering full-service remodeling services, semi-custom and full custom design builds, and additional services, we have established ourselves as a trusted design build firm in the Bay Area.
