About Schramm & Hallman

Schramm & Hallman was established in 1952 by Gus Schramm & his son-in-law Ed Hallman. Together they tackled whatever jobs came their way, including repairing a lighthouse in the Delaware Bay. As their business grew their reputation for quality, attention to detail and customer service also grew. Today we no longer venture onto the Delaware for work, but we are still committed to the values and reputation Gus and Ed started all those years ago. In fact, they are the foundation on which our business is built.


Today, Schramm & Hallman is run by Bill Vota and Norma Sasso. Bill started in the construction field in North Carolina before moving to Cape May and joining Schramm and Hallman in 1989. His natural ability to understand the nature of older homes and his superior construction knowledge led to a full business partnership in 1994. Bill personally works on or oversees every job, communicates directly with homeowners and treats all projects as if it they were his own house. Bill is married and has one daughter and three step-sons.


Norma Sasso, who is Ed’s daughter, joined the firm in 1990. She is responsible for running the office, obtaining permits, and customer service. Norma is the person who answers the office phone and keeps homeowners up to date when they are not in town during construction. With a background in interior design, store merchandising and small business management, she is always willing to assist with basic layouts, designs or ideas. She has a daughter and three grown step-children.


Ed Hallman is now semi-retired, but still an important part of the business. While he no longer works on the job sites, he draws up plans and estimates many of our projects. His knowledge of construction and his history with many of the homes in the area cannot be matched. Married for 59 years he divides his time between Cape May, NJ and Cape Coral, FL.


Since 1952 Schramm & Hallman Builders has been restoring and renovating the older homes in Cape May, Cape May Point and Lower Township. We also build custom homes, garages, additions and decks, renovate kitchens and bathrooms, install replacement windows and make repairs. When Ed and Gus started the business no job was too small. That still applies today. So, if you are looking for a new house or just need a rotted deck board replaced, give us a call.
