2018 opened with an 8% revenue increase, the strongest first quarter in the company’s 68-year history
(May 21, 2018 – BRANCHBURG, NJ) Somerville Aluminum/Bellari Design, central jersey’s largest full-service home improvement and remodeling company, proudly announces a record start to 2018 reporting the strongest first quarter in the company’s 68-year history, posting an eight percent increase in total revenue generated in January, February and March, from previous years. Among the projects contributing to the spike in winter revenue, Somerville Aluminum/Bellari Design was contracted for a large volume of window and door upgrades, as well as kitchen and bathroom renovations.
“The winter months can be tough,” admits Somerville Aluminum/Bellari Design Co-Owner and Executive Vice President Gary Shiman. “Our success is indicative of our company’s unique combination of design expertise, quality installation, and exceptional customer service with a growing team, which have been hallmarks of our business for decades.”
“There may always be lumber companies or big box retailers who try to emulate who we are,” shares Shiman, “but ‘Somerville Aluminum’ has earned a reputation for quality home remodeling since the company’s inception. This is not a new business for us – this is what we do, and we have worked diligently to do it well, since 1950.”
In addition to Somerville Aluminum’s lengthy history of providing superior products coupled with superior service, Shiman also acknowledges that as the nation’s economic outlook has continued to improve, the bolstered consumer confidence leads to investment both in home buying and remodeling. In fact, the IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, a leading national poll on consumer confidence, rose 1.9 percent in May to a reading of 53.6, marking a record run of 20 consecutive months in positive territory.
The robust pace of spending on home renovations and repairs is expected to stay strong over the coming quarters, according to the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) released in April by the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University. The LIRA projects that annual growth in homeowner remodeling expenditure will remain above 7 percent throughout the year and into the first quarter of 2019.
