Selecting a Contrator: Why Choose Us
Selecting the right contractor for your project no matter what the size can be a very confusing process, especially if you are not experienced in dealing with contractors. The Better Business Bureau's "Tips on Home Improvements" brochure contains questions concerning the reliability, insurability and integrity of the contractor. It is generally accpeted that properly selecting the contractor is far more important than selecting a specific type of material. However, quality materials in the hands of a questionable contractor may lead to an unsatisfactory project. The following information will help answer the question - "Why Choose Us"?

Stability
We are the Pocono's oldest home improvement company, SINCE 1978 with a reputation built on quality and affordability! A survey of the Small Business Administration indicated contractor failure may leave homeowners with unfulfilled promises and worthless warranties. In today's economy where the chance of failure is greater now than before, it is increasingly important to make sure the contractor is established and stable. Blakeslee Home Improvement has been in business for over 30 years which means we will be here to assist you year after year, long after other contractors have come and gone.

Materials
There are many different grades of materials available from manufacturers for homeowners. The minimum grade also known as builder quality is designed to serve the new home builder and department store, where low price has higher priority than quality and performance. The Home Improvement Industry recommends that quality products are the best investment for the homeowner. Labor costs are generally the same for installing either grade of material, therefore the savings of low quality products may not be cost justified. Our company in conjunction with CCN (Certified Contractors Network) specializes in researching building materials and select the quality which will provide the maximum return on investment for the homeowner. Our philosophy is quite simple, if we wouldn't install it on our own home, we would not install it on yours!

Customer Service
Service before, during and after a project has always been a problem area for the home improvement industry. Contractors often fail to provide written agreements detailing what is and what is not included in the scope of work to be completed. Our reputation has been partially built by providing prompt, detailed proposals. Quality installation, in a timely manner together with project follow-up and warranty service maintains ths reputation.

Craftsmanship
Blakeslee Home Improvement’s installation department and management is certified and factory trained by several of our manufacturers, allowing us to give you the best installation and upgraded warranties. A common problem for all contrator's is maintaining a quality workforce. Due to seasonal and economic changes many contractors cannot afford to keep personnel. Fortunately, we maintain a steady flow of work which attracts a conscientious quality individual. Our personnel enjoy steady income and fringe benefits not normally found in this industry, enabling us to maintain quality installations for our customers. Several of our installers have been with us for over 15 years.

Insurance
The home improvement industry is rated a high risk for accidents due to the use of ladders and power equipment. You, the homeowner, should be cautious of the contractor who is not protecting you with insurance. An accidential injury to a worker, passerby or damage to your home may result in considerable financial loss. We will be more than happy to provide you with a certificate of insurance that details our coverage. which are Our insurance coverage is designed to protect you and your home.

Customer Satisfaction
Customer satisfaction is our #1 priority. At Blakeslee Home Improvement we recognize that integrity is the keystone of a successful business and a satisfied customer. THANK YOU for visiting our website and considering Blakeslee Home Improvement. We will do everything possible to earn your confidence and look forward to adding you to our list of over 18,000 satisfied customers.

Community
The business has been built on a foundation of community activism. The company is actively involved in the Greater Pocono Chamber of Commerce. We have donated gutter to several Habitat for Humanity projects in Monroe County and were involved with the Monroe County Red Cross extreme make-over. See www.redcrossmonroepa.org/buildingmakeover.html.

Community Involvement
 
Red Cross
The Monroe County Chapter Chairman, Connie Roberts, put out the word that the Chapter House needed a makeover.  The project started out by asking for new gutters and grew to an unplanned $112,000 makeover in 5 months. When Connie asked if we could help, our answer was of course! With the help of our suppliers and staff we were able to outfit the building with a "Total Home Protection" package. Kohl Building Products donated trim coil so we could cover all of the fascia boards, and elimanate the need for future painting. Truss Building Products, LLC donated the Snap Lock Gutter Installation System. Semco donated Gutter Helmet. Blakeslee Home Improvement supplied the gutter and our factory trained employees, installed the products.

Little League
Blakeslee Home Improvement has sponsored Little League baseball for many years.

Habitat for Humanity
Being involved in your community and giving back in small ways gives such a sense of belonging and worth. Supplying and installing gutter systems on several Habitat for Humanity houses has enabled us to do that. Some recent projects include :
Ski Haven Estates
Cherry Road in Polk township
Briercrest Woods

Donation for Local Benefit

When my phone rang asking me to help at a benefit for a little girl diagnosed with a brain tumor, I wasn't sure what I could do, but we started talking and I learned a group got together and were planning an auction with the proceeds going to help this girl and her family. We were able to donate the installation of a 100' gutter protection system.
