It’s spring time — the time to enjoy longer days, vacations, and lounging at home. It’s also time to assess the damage an extremely harsh winter made on your home and maybe, time to refurbish that weathered exterior. If your home could use some renovating, but handy is not your middle name, be sure to consider Lawrenceville Home Improvement Center for your home improvement needs. Founded in 1952 by John Russo Sr., LHIC has been improving homes in Mercer, Hunterdon, Burlington, and Monmouth counties (and more) for 63 years strong. Not many businesses can say that!
Specializing in doors, windows, and siding, John Russo Sr. started and built LHIC with little money but a big passion for quality craftsmanship. Decades later, sons John Jr. and Paul continue the tradition and are now joined by their sons, James and Bryan. The Russo family learned early on to build their business on two main principles: excellent product quality and top-notch installation. And it’s not just improving your home’s appearance that keeps them in business, but improving quality and efficiency as well.
“Years ago, most homeowners used wood for doors and siding. Nowadays, fiberglass, vinyl, and composite materials are in high demand. They’re more energy efficient and longer lasting than wood,” says James Russo, one of the owners. “And both durability and efficiency, while staying green, is important to us.”
Maybe your home doesn’t need new windows or doors for aesthetic reasons, but you want to decrease your utility bills and carbon footprint. Upgrading windows, doors, and siding will save long-term money on heating and air conditioning costs. With the rising costs of fuel and extreme weather patterns, this has never been more important.
A mark of their quality and service can be seen on Angie’s List, which has awarded the company with its Super Service Award for the past three years. In addition, LHIC has been acknowledged by the BF Rich Company, maker of custom windows and doors. BF Rich is committed to green business practices and gives its prestigious Quality First Award to deserving companies. This award was given to Lawrenceville Home Improvement Center 11 years in a row for “tireless dedication to customer service and an ongoing commitment to quality.”
To make your vision easier, Lawrenceville Home Improvement will be opening a new showroom in late summer. The showroom, which will be located in the Lawrence Shopping Center on Business Route 1 in Lawrenceville, will display siding, windows, doors, and much more in a 5,000-square-foot space.
“Customers can come in and explore the products, features, and benefits,” explains Russo. “This will greatly help and enhance the decision-making process.”
