Hurricane Sandy Recovery for Homeowners

We are happy to announce that all staff and employees of DJ’s Home Improvements are safe! Thank you to all those who left lovely voicemails, Facebook comments, emails and keeping us in your thoughts.

We are all very excited to be back at work after two weeks of waiting for power restoration in our offices. And we realize there are many homeowners and businesses who are still suffering the after-effects of Hurricane Sandy.

So in an effort to always be a reliable informational resource we have provided some helpful links and tips to those still affected by the storm.


Be weary of contractors who are immediately available to repair your home. During a devastating disaster home-owners are very distraught and become the victims to unreliable contractors. These types of contractors either take your deposit and run or only address the visible damage.

TIP: Use a restoration company. A home restoration company is specifically knowledgeable in the beginning steps of reclaiming your home.  They will evaluate the visible damage and also address the non-visible damage like mold and foundation structure.

TIP: Expect a longer wait time for professional contractors and restoration companies. Remember Sandy has claimed millions of victims, so patience is key to ensure your home is restored in impeccable condition.

Look at the bright side, now you can get that kitchen you always wanted!

While unexpected disasters are never a happy surprise, remember that you can always transform a negative into a positive. Once your restoration is complete transform your problems areas into a masterpiece by scheduling a consultation for your design and home remodeling needs. Please call us at #516-775-8696 or email contact@djshome.com.

2012 Housing Market Improves

It’s Time To Invest During The Upturn

In the past year, it has been very evident that…

The housing market is back on the upturn. This change is inevitable and it is happening right now. The numbers will speak for themselves.

  • Currently, the U.S. population is growing at 3 million people per year. At this growth rate, the demand for additional housing units still exist, even if at a lower rate than ten years ago. This growing population will form new households, which will scoop up the current existing 600,000 surplus housing, and still more housing will be needed.
  • The number of homes with loans in delinquency or foreclosures continue to drop. Thanks to ever-growing rental rates, buying a home is currently cheaper than renting.
  • According to recent surveys by the Federal Reserve, mortgage lending standards are starting to ease up.
  • Factors such as the upturn in home sales and an unseasonably mild winter is causing a healthy uptick of annual spending on remodeling in 2012.

As I drive around, I hear sounds of construction on homes, and we are extremely busy at designing for new clients and projects. Permit applications are way up and clients are signing up for new projects.

We, at DJ’s Home Improvements, believe in the systems we have in place. As we continue to grow and thrive, with over 40 years of experience in design and build remodeling combined, we will continue to provide you the same quality service as we always have.

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Neighbors,

It’s that wonderful time of year when we all have the opportunity to do something to help make the summer special for someone else.

We would like your participation this summer to help a group of soldiers as a summer project and we want to present each of them with a special gift set.  This will help protect them in the heat of the summer.

We’re asking individuals and businesses in the community to adopt a soldier for the summer.

For every 10 followers we get on Twitter, you will sponsor a special gift for one soldier and help them to feel remembered and supported. For every 5 gift sets earned from Twitter follows, I will donate an additional one myself!  So, get onto Twitter, follow us and share this message to get more followers and therefore more gifts to our soldiers!

Follow us at https://twitter.com/djshomeimprove to get a soldier their special gift. We will mention you in our tweets every time we hit a goal – A Special Gift for each solder for every 10 followers!


We have 83 followers on Twitter now, so when we hit 90 we’ll donate a gift set, then another gift set will be donated at 100 followers, and another at 110 and so on… Even more, for every 50 followers, I will donate an additional gift set myself! Follow us now to keep track of this summer donation project and help our troops feel remembered and supported!

Thank You for helping to make the summer brighter for this special group of people who serve us daily!

The gift set includes a sunblock, lip protector, tax and gift wrap!

Our soldiers thank you and we at DJ’s Home Improvements thank you in advance for your support.
