Church Pew General Contracting Company — The Keck Group

At The Keck Group, we don't just service pews. We service relationships.

Since 1972, The Keck Group has been refinishing, repairing and refurbishing church pews with impeccable skill and attention to detail from our refinishing facility in Middletown, NY. The quality of our work is second to none, and we strive to uphold that reputation in every refinishing, restoration and repair project for our clients.

We're a general contracting and construction company that has been working directly with clients for over 40 years. Our company is unique in that there is no middle man involved in the church pew contracting process — just you and our team of trusted experts. We find that working directly with our clients yields the best results and attracts a loyal clientele that stays with our services for years.

Our Pew Construction Services

We offer pew construction services ranging from refinishing and restoration to renovation. Our team of dedicated craftsmen with years of proven experience will leave your pews in better condition than when you first purchased them.

Refinishing & Restoration

We specialize in refinishing and restoring pews off-site. From improving the structural integrity of old pews to refinishing pews with worn down woodwork, we have you covered. If you're unable to have your pews restored off-site due to unmovable furniture or other obstructions, feel free to contact us and discuss what on-site services we can provide for you.


We do church pew renovations off-site in our facility. We have the tools and equipment to get your pews looking brand new again - our team of experts is ready to meet your needs!


When your pews get damaged or worn down, you do not need to get rid of them. We do pew repairs in our facility and also have a field repair team.


One unique benefit of The Keck Group is our pew transportation services. The trailers and trucks we use are large enough to fit entire pews without the need to dismantle and reconfigure. Your pews maintain their structural and aesthetic quality for the entire duration of service.

Our Quality Products

We offer more than just pew construction services. Browse through our collection of pew cushions, kneelers and accessories. Our products are both high-quality and reasonably priced so you can get the best deals for your pews:

Trinity Church Update

As the Christmas deadline nears for the installation of Pews and Wainscot, we have been busy finishing the new parts and beginning re-assembly.

TrinityNew Pew Parts

The mating of existing ends and backs with the new seats and supports has proved successful with the long and short pew version samples completed.  No matter how much time and effort expended on the design work and the sizing, a sigh of relief cannot be breathed until all of the parts fit as planned and the final assembly can take place.

As can be seen in the photos below, the mockup of long and short pews is complete and the finishing has begun at an accelerated pace in order to start final assembly and prep work for installation.

Trinity Short Pew sample


New Atwood Hamlin Kneelers have been ordered; special metal and leg colors and an architect chosen fabric will make these kneelers one of a kind.  These should be in just in time for the early December install.


As usual, the schedule changes daily from the construction manager as they make the final push to deadline.

Spotlight Project


St. John Church in Goshen New York, a welcome nearby project for a change after Boston, Virginia Beach, and multiple NY City projects, underwent a full renovation beginning in June and completed in early September.

The Keck Group was chosen to restore the pews and install new kneelers, and the job came out perfect, as the accompanying pictures and note from Fr. George Hafemann attests.

These old timers required much tender care, as they have survived the use of over seventy years.
