Here’s the story of a fellow Long Islander, Justin Greenfield and his partner, Rony Carvajal Garcia, owners of NY’s Finest Roofing & Siding:
Hey Justin & Rony! How did you get started in the roofing and siding business?
Justin: I actually started very young. As a teenager, I got to learn from my father who had a roofing and siding company. I spent most weekends and summer vacations as his “apprentice”, learning the in’s and out’s of the roofing business.
Once I graduated from Copiague High School, I went to work for my father full time, along with my brother. In 2001, the three of us opened up our own roofing and siding company as partners. About 6 years later, I went out on my own as a subcontractor, which led to me opening up NY’s Finest Roofing and Siding, where we offer not only residential roofing, but also commercial roofing, flat roofing, siding installation and roof replacement among other services.
What types of services does NY’s Finest Roofing and Siding provide?
We mainly focus on roofing and siding, almost exclusively. We take pride in being true experts at installing, re-roofing, inspections, and emergency repair roofing and siding. We also install windows and doors. We do both commercial and residential; pitched, flat or oddly shaped roofing too!
What is one thing NY’s Finest Roofing and Siding is known for over it’s competitors?
Quality is #1 to us! It is always our goal to leave our clients 100% satisfied with our work, communication and quality. One of the most satisfying experiences to us is getting a new 5-star review!
We also use a ventilation system in our roof installs which allows the roof to “breathe”. It brings an inflow of air, circulates it and gets it out. This process ensures the shingles do not warp, adding longevity to your roofing investment.
What are your ties to Long Island?
Justin: Born and raised! I grew up in Amityville. I went to St Martin of Tours and graduated from Copiague High School. Now, I’m just a little bit west; I call Massapequa my home with my wife and two daughters.
Is NY’s Finest Roofing & Siding involved in any community groups or charity organizations?
Giving back to the community is very important to us. We help provide for local churches and synagogues, whether it be time, funding or even services. Check out the work we did on this church:
We are also very proud to be a part of the local Chambers of Commerce and we always try to do our best in terms of donating for fundraisers to local schools and charity organizations.
What was the biggest risk your business ever took?
Probably buying the property for our new offices at 421 Sunrise Highway, North Service Rd in West Islip. It was a large investment for the business, but we are very happy to have a permanent and future home for our business.
What is the biggest “win” in your business’ history?
We were recently certified as a Google Guaranteed Business. The Google Guarantee helps convey trust and gives customers a peace of mind knowing they are dealing with a trusted professional. We had to go through an in-depth background check and analysis of our business in order to get certified by Google.
