The Old Country
Jurek and Barbara grew up in small villages in the beautiful Polish countryside. They both observed their parents work potato and hay fields from dusk till dawn. Tending to cattle and horses was an exhausting but satisfying daily routine. Their parents’ virtues instilled in them the work ethic that created a special venture just a few years later.
Land of Opportunity
With the dream of better future, both Jurek and Barbara were presented with an opportunity to come to the United States. Shortly after arriving in their new home land, they took advantage of life’s lessons thought to them by their parents. Barbara started of as a cleaning lady, and Jurek as a siding installer, both working 12 to 14 hour days. It was a hard journey for them, but they new they were making progress and trying to better their lives.
After about four years an idea was born. With Jurek’s siding installation experience and Barbara’s outgoing personality, they embarked on a journey that is still alive today. B&B Siding LLC, was formed, a siding installation company with a focus on Doing Business the Right Way, Honesty & Integrity and Pride in their Work
Attention to detail, craftsmanship and most of all honesty were the main virtues by which Barbara and Jurek wanted to work by.
Some questioned, B&B’s business model. We’ve always emphasized relationships with our clients over bottom line. But our dedication to responsiveness and honoring all agreements, has paid off. Our growth is a credit to the loyalty of our customers, shown through their referrals, which make up the majority of our work. Since 1993, B&B has served over 4,300 residents in Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Central New Jersey. Every job was successful because we treat clients as the family or friends they’ve become.
A Family Affair
As the enterprise expanded, Barbara & Jurek enlisted their four sons, Jarek (Jerry), Robert, Slawek (Steve), and Kamil. B&B became a true family affair.
In 2006, Jurek and Barbara decided it was time to let the boys take the helm. Kamil was put in charge of business operations. The other trio, with years of experience under their belt, established their own installation crews.
Today, B&B is proud to maintain the old world values passed down from their parents and grandparents.
