Whether we’re at home relaxing (which is not very often) or busy working on a new renovation project, you will find us together most of the time, which is unusual for a husband and wife team who have been married for the last 36 years. Our marriage has grown and changed through the years, and has been cemented by the blessings that children and extended family bring, as well as another bond we share.
We are the proud owners of DJ’s Home Improvements, which opened in 1990, and like our marriage, is still going strong. Prior to opening the business, I was in the computer processing and technology industry and Vita was a representative with Citibank, as well as a mother to two young boys, which as all mothers know, is the toughest job of all. Both of the boys, Anthony, 30, and Matthew, 28, are involved in the business today.
Our greatest sense of accomplishment is seeing our sons grow up with the business and learning each and every facet of it, from procuring materials to satisfying each of our clients – it has truly made them self-sufficient human beings and sons to whom we are extremely proud.
When we launched our business 22 years ago, we worked out of our home, and it was truly a labor of love. Over the years, relationships have been built that continue to the present day. As these relationships grew, so did our business. What made us stand out from similar businesses? It is our integrity, dependability, conscientiousness, and a desire to build solid associations with our clients.
Five years ago, we opened our office at 55 New Hyde Park Road in Franklin Square. Certified as designers and remodelers, we continue to educate ourselves on what’s new in the industry to keep our clients up-to-date on the latest trends in home renovations.
As we continue to provide the professionalism and quality that our clients have grown to depend on, the future looks promising. DJ’s Home Improvements’ future plans include expanding our office facilities, opening a new showroom to provide our clients with more hands-on product selections, as well as introducing our own cabinet line. With our photorealistic drawings, created prior to the start of all projects, we “show you the future” so you can visualize exactly how your renovation will look.
It is always our goal to provide our clients with a home they will love and enjoy for years to come. To that end, we have developed more new ideas that give clients home renovations that are not only energy efficient and beautiful to look upon, but also comfortable as they age along with their homes.
