STATEN ISLAND, NY – Troost Bros. Inc. Home Renovations and Galante Home Improvement, both long time, local Staten Island home improvement contracting companies announced this past summer their merger of businesses, creating a stronger, more competitive and more efficient home renovation company.
Troost Bros. Inc., established in 1996, with offices located at 470 Clove Road in West Brighton, provides homeowners with complete home renovations, additions and roof raises, in addition to kitchen and bathroom remodeling, decks, attics, window and door replacements, and roofing and siding, all with the highest level of expertise.
Butch Galante, the sole force behind Galante Home Improvement, Inc., established in 1974, observed and had been part of the development of the Staten Island landscape since opening his doors. With the overwhelming growth in population during the late 20th century, the need for homeowner services, like, renovations, additions, remodeling and home repairs became abundant. Galante Home Improvement provided these necessary services for Staten Islanders for over 40 years and completed thousands and thousands of remodeling and renovation projects prior to joining Troost Bros. Inc.
Both Troost Bros. Inc. and Galante Home Improvement share the same business philosophy and therefore, the merger was effortless. They are both strong advocates for educating consumers on the importance of hiring licensed, insured and reputable contractors. As they are both avid proponents for providing their clients with full service, professional remodeling and home improvement services, the transition was seamless.
As long time members and active Board Members of NARI-HIC of Staten Island (the Home Improvement Contractors of Staten Island) they fortified their bond, and realized the potential for this merger. Their knowledge and awareness that homeowners need a contracting firm that is reputable, respectful of a client’s budget, and a client’s timeline, coupled with the desire to create beautiful homes for their client’s, united the two businesses.
According to Jeff Troost, President of Troost Bros. Inc., this merger provided the opportunity to acquire a wide variety of expertise, qualifications, attributes and skills to the already successful Troost Bros. Inc. family. The combined company will provide a greater work force and the ability to optimize project performance.
