If you live in Brooklyn or are about to buy a property in the borough, congratulations, your home is in one of the most desirable real estate markets in the United States. Brooklyn is hot because it’s a city within a city. In fact, until 1898, it was a unique city, separate from New York City. Modern Brooklyn has great shops, schools and restaurants and unique architecture. If you own property in Brooklyn, you want to protect your investment and that means doing maintenance and home improvement projects. You want the home improvement experts from Good Guys Contracting.

All About Brownstones
When one thinks about Brooklyn property, one of the first things that comes to mind are Brownstones. Neighborhoods like Park Slope, Clinton Hill and Fort Greene are noted for these iconic structures. Brownstones are townhouses which are made of sandstone, which was a popular building material in the 19th century because it was cheaper than marble or limestone, according to the New York Historical Society.
But what was considered cheap in the 19th century can bring in big money in the 21st century. According to realtor.com, brownstones are hot. “In the better Brooklyn neighborhoods, you’d be hard-pressed to find a brownstone for under $2 million,” Lesley Semmelhack, an associate broker with the Corcoran Group told the website. “It’s the ultimate real estate asset. You know you’re sitting on something very special and very valuable.”
Brownstones are tricky to maintain because of their age and one way to do it is by installing siding. There’s a movement towards making brownstones unique and not identical to what’s next door. Colorful James Hardie Siding is the perfect way to do that. Good Guys Contracting is a James Hardie Preferred remodeler and this high quality siding is durable and will protect your brownstone from winter cold and summer sun.
Window Replacement for Brooklyn Property
Another home improvement project that can make a difference for Brooklyn property owners is window replacement. Rachel Kash, a Carroll Gardens homeowner tells the website Brownstoner that she transformed her home when she added a new window.
“It gives our living/dining space a dramatic look, one that nearly everyone comments on when they enter our home,” she said. “In addition, the window really brightened up our entire garden level, which has low, beamed ceilings. Definitely worth the time and energy.”
While we don’t know all the details of this particular project, Good Guys understands the value of window replacement. It’s why we carry Marvin Windows and Doors and Integrity by Marvin products. These durable, energy-efficient windows and doors will look great and can even boost your property value.
