Dunaway Brothers Elevates New Construction & Home Renovation Market with Strategic Acquisition of Sandwich Millworks


In a strategic move that promises to redefine the residential home improvement sector, North Aurora, Illinois-based Dunaway Brothers, a well-known commercial contractor founded by Jeff and Dave Dunaway, has announced the acquisition of Sandwich Millworks. This merger solidifies Dunaway Brothers’ entry into the residential market as Sandwich Millworks, A Division of Dunaway Brothers.

The acquisition heralds an exciting new chapter for homeowners across the Chicagoland area. With their combined expertise, clients can now access an unrivaled selection of Marvin doors, windows, and millwork accompanied by the unique service of in-house custom finishing.

“This acquisition allows us to deliver a seamless, high-quality experience to our residential customers,” said Partner, Jeff Dunaway. “Homeowners will now have the convenience of selecting any paint or stain color they desire, with the assurance of certified Dunaway Brothers professionals bringing the finishing right to their doorstep.”

The timing of the merger couldn’t be better. According to Architectural Digest, “Homeowners have developed a renewed interest in home renovation projects over the past three years. According to the Joint Center for Housing Centers of Harvard University, home improvement project spending increased from $328 billion in 2019 to $472 billion in 2022, with an estimated 2024 spending of $485 billion.”

In Perfect Alignment

Sandwich Millworks’ reputation for premium products aligns perfectly with Dunaway Brothers’ commitment to excellence, making this a strategic fit.

The legacy of Sandwich Millworks could not find a more fitting home.”
