Check out some of the photos of satisfied clients who have trusted us to complete their New Jersey kitchen renovation for them:

“I’ve had Affordable Home renovate my shower and kitchen. I am in love with how they both turned out. It is great dealing with the owner Jim as he really takes care of your wants and needs for the renovation. He even went to the granite shop with me to look at slabs. I will always call these guys whenever I need something done for my house. They make sure my house dreams come true :)”

Roofing projects

The last thing you want is to get caught in summer showers with a leaky roof. Moreover, you want any roofing repairs to be done by qualified, licensed, and confident crews who stand behind their work. You have a lot of options for roofing companies in NJ, but Affordable Home Services is a cut above the rest.

We can replace your entire roofing system, or simply do a seasonal inspection and tighten up any potential problems. For instance, did you know a skylight can be a spot where water and external air can enter your home? It’s an easy fix, but if you don’t have inspections, you’d never know!

Our team focuses on the fact that your roof is best at protecting your home if everything involved is working correctly, including:

  • Gutters and downspouts are free and clear of debris and damage
  • Flashing is held together and preventing leaking
  • Your ventilation system is sealed up and free from birds, squirrels, and other animals
  • Small areas of storm damage are repaired preemptively so they don’t turn into major problems down the road

We offer both commercial and residential roofing solutions for NJ citizens, like these recently completed jobs:

“Jim, John, and their team replaced our roof and added a portico above our front door in May 2020. Even during quarantine, they were very responsive and great to work with. We have had some bad experiences with other contractors in the past few years, but working with Affordable was painless! They were professional, had high-quality work, and were overall nice people to work with. We are very happy to have brought our business to Affordable, and we will definitely go back to them if we need any other work done to our home.”

When it comes to adding masonry steps to your property, there are plenty of things to be considered. Although masonry steps can be beneficial to some properties, they can be a hindrance to others. Before you decide whether or not you want to invest in masonry steps or a masonry stoop, please consider the following information.

Benefits of Investing in Masonry Steps

If you’re interested in investing in masonry services for your company, you should take some time to learn more about them before having them installed. Here are some of the top benefits:

  • Weather Resistant: One of the top benefits of installing a masonry stoop is that they are weather resistant. Installing masonry steps will mean that you have an area of your home that is resistant to everything from snowstorms to flooding, and much more.
  • Termite, Rot, Mold, and Fungus Resistant: When working with other materials, such as wood, you will have to deal with issues such as termite, rot, mold, and fungus. Each of these issues can wreak havoc and can spread to other areas of your home. However, by installing a masonry front entry steps design, you will not have to worry about these issues.
  • Low Maintenance: Another benefit of installing masonry steps is that they are very low maintenance. These steps are sturdy and long-lasting; they very rarely have to be serviced.
  • High Value: Masonry steps offer incredible value. For instance, using masonry construction adds value to your home because they not only look great but also stand the test of time. Therefore, if you are looking to sell your home in the near future, installing masonry steps can help boost the value of your home overall.
  • Beautiful Designs: Lastly, having masonry steps installed can provide you with an opportunity to have beautiful, uniquely designed steps. These steps can add personality to your home and make it appear more upscale.

On the other hand, masonry steps are not for everyone. Since they are so low maintenance, you may overlook the signs that they need to be serviced until it’s too late. So, if you live in an area that is known for extreme weather or that deals with incredibly large amounts of traffic, you may need to have your steps serviced more often than those who do not. Additionally, the up-front costs can be more costly than steps made from other types of materials.

Key Takeaways:

  • Before investing in masonry steps, you should be sure you weigh out the pros and cons.
  • Some pros are that they are low maintenance and high in value.
  • On the other hand, they can be costly and do require semi-regular maintenance when exposed to extreme conditions.

The quality of your roof is particularly important as it safeguards everything you hold dear to your heart. You need and deserve the best roofing services. Our roofing specialists at Affordable Home Services are here to help you choose the best new roofing material. Let’s take a look at some of the top options.

GAF Shingles

GAF is the largest maker of both residential and commercial roofing materials in North America, with roots stemming back to 1886. GAF’s roofing shingles are of the highest quality, providing ample protection even when the weather takes a turn for the worse. These roofing shingles are available in three distinct types including slate shingles, that won’t bust your budget.

If you are looking for a budget-friendly shingle, consider the GAF Timberline 3 tab shingles. This affordable shingle provides sufficient protection without hurting your finances. In fact, GAF Timberline shingles are sold with a lifetime limited warranty making them the top-selling shingles in North America.

Another popular shingle type is the GAF Designer Lifetime Shingles. These eye-catching, shingles are built to stand the test of time while taking a beating. Opt for GAF Designer Shingles and your neighbors will think quite highly of your property and family as this roofing material does look significantly better than other options.


Metal shingles are made of steel, alloy, copper, or aluminum and stamped into the proper shapes. This roofing material is one of the most energy-efficient around, largely because it reflects the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them, ultimately reducing cooling costs all the more. Perhaps the best part about metal roofing is it lasts half a century or even upwards of 75 years.

Your metal roof might not be as visually striking as other varieties yet it will prove resistant to wind, rot, rain, and other inclement weather. However, the slight downside to this roofing style is the potential denting from hail, and rain being louder while inside.


Slate shingles are built to hold steady even when the weather worsens. This roofing material has a visually pleasing aesthetic, is much more natural-looking than other types of roofs, and proves resistant to moisture, hail, and heat. Opt for slate and you probably won’t end up with a roof leak. Though slate is fairly heavy, sometimes necessitating extra framing, and is somewhat expensive, it will safeguard you and your loved ones below better than most other types of roofing.


Asphalt roofing is affordable, has a wide range of thicknesses, is light-weight, and available in all sorts of different colors, one of which is sure to suit your home’s aesthetic. This variety of shingles is reinforced with either organic materials such as cellulose or fiberglass. The different sizes and colors of asphalt shingles make them look as though they have several dimensions. Asphalt roofing typically lasts between 15 and 30 years.


Wood shingles have a rustic look yet are more vulnerable to fire than other building materials. Cut from pine, spruce, or cedar, wood roofing is a comparably green material that lasts between two and three decades. Once wood shingles are installed, you can power wash them after mold, mildew or other gunk accumulates, clearing out all the growth for lovely, clean shingles.

Concrete and Clay

Available in a wide variety of colors, these energy-efficient, non-combustible roof shingles are fairly heavy yet effective. As long as your roof structure supports the installation of this roofing material, it will protect everything below quite well. Clay doesn’t fade after extensive sunlight exposure. Concrete reflects the sun and provides insulation against the cold as well as heat.


Composite roofing is available in the form of authentic replicas that look similar to natural materials. Comprised of plastic, rubber, and polymer, composite shingles look the same or quite similar to their initial hue even after they have been in place for 50+ years. This roofing material proves resistant to impactful forces as well as heat to varying degrees based on respective classes. Composite shingle additives provide even more defenses against potential threats ranging from UV rays to moss.


  • GAF shingles are high-quality shingles that provide ample protection to your home during unpredictable weather.
  • The roof you choose ultimately determines whether your home and everything below will be adequately protected.
  • Our roofing specialists are here to do the roofing work on your behalf.

Affordable Home Services is the top choice for home remodeling and additions. We can not only transform your house but your life by providing you the home you’ve always wanted. Our expertise includes renovations and additions of bathrooms, basements, second-story additions, and much more. We can help create a design that meets your budget and space needs. We are fully insured, and we pride ourselves on completing high-quality work in a timely fashion.

Homeowners often wonder how to increase home value. One way is through addition that provides additional space and improves the quality of life. It can basically pay for itself through increased home value! The first step is to look at what additions might make sense for you and your family and what upgrades add value to a home. Below we take a look at home additions that can provide a strong return on investment (ROI) and add tremendous living space.

  1. Game Room/Media Room
    A common living space dedicated to fun family activities can add value while providing a dynamic living space. A game or media room is popular in today’s device and electronic-driven world. A place for the family to gather and play on a gaming console, watch a movie or play games is the perfect space. Typical game/media rooms include a theater-like setting with surround sound and proper lighting. Great use of this space can also provide a wow factor down the road to potential buyers if you ever choose to move.
  2. Garage Additions
    A garage addition can add value to your home whether you’re adding to a garage or simply expanding an existing garage. A garage can add an element of security, allowing you to safely park your vehicles inside. It’s also great during inclement weather and is an amenity many new homebuyers look for. A garage also can provide additional storage yard maintenance items or even a second refrigerator. Thus, garage additions can add tremendous value.
  3. Second-Story Additions
    second-story addition can add more bedrooms and bathrooms to your home, and greatly increase the living space. You can, essentially, double the size of your home if you choose to do a full addition. Or, you can pursue a more moderate expansion by building out an attic space that creates many opportunities, from simply adding a loft to adding a full-on second floor. Turning a one or two-bedroom home into a three-bedroom or even four-bedroom house can greatly alter the value of your home. Also, by expanding vertically, you maintain your lot and yard space.
  4. Bathroom Additions
    As your children enter their teenage years, an additional bathroom with a shower or tub can prove invaluable. A bathroom addition also is a great way to increase the value of a property. Buyers tend to look at the number of bathrooms and bedrooms a home has in evaluating its size and whether it will work for them.

Key Takeaways

  • An addition to your house can improve your quality of life while adding value to the home.
  • Affordable Home Services has a wide range of experience in home renovations and additions and will work with you to create a plan that meets your budget and your needs.
  • A second-story addition is a great way to expand vertically and ensure that you preserve your yard while expanding your living space.

Brick homes and residences with brick features are not only visually pleasing and but they stand the test of time. The elegance of a brick home is timeless. However, it is not easy to find contractors that specialize in brickwork. Here at Affordable Home Services, we are proud to provide repointing brickwork services in addition to other brick-related services. We also provide tuckpointing and brick replacement. However, our repointing service is particularly popular. All of our brickwork services are provided in a thorough, timely, and reliable manner.

Our Repointing Brick Services

Most people have heard of repointing in passing yet do not fully understand what it means. In short, repointing is a process that involves the careful repair of masonry joints within brick homes and other buildings made of brick. This type of project is particularly challenging, necessitating the attention of those who have extensive experience working with brick. Repointing requires the careful removal of mortar that has been damaged. This compromised mortar is subsequently replaced with brand new mortar.

The purpose of our brick repointing service is to enhance the building’s resistance to water and moisture while simultaneously improving its appearance. We also perform waterproofing and leak diagnosis. Most people are curious as to when to repoint brickwork to make the optimal impact. If you notice any water is moving through your bricks or if you suspect there is a leak, do not hesitate to ask our team for assistance. Fail to address the leak and your home’s structural integrity will be compromised. Our team is here to pinpoint the source of the problem and waterproof the entirety of your bricks to ensure your home or other building remains completely dry.

In addition to repointing internal brickwork and waterproofing brick, we also perform tuckpointing. Tuckpointing involves mortaring of bricks to make them look as though they have fine joints. This process decreases the amount of mortar that is visible. Take a look at a home before and after it is tuckpointed and you will agree it looks that much better after the tuckpointing is performed.

We Embrace the Challenge of Repointing Brick

Repointing brick and stone is much more challenging than most people assume. Though few know it, the truth is masonry work has the potential to compromise or even destroy old homes. The bottom line is you need the professionals to perform brick or stone repointing at your home, regardless of its age. The alternative is to lean on those who lack experience who have the potential to attempt repointing that eventually backfires to the point that it damages the home’s structural integrity.

The quality of your brick repointing service provider is particularly important if your home was built decades ago. The last thing you want is for a shoddy repointing service to result in a weakening of your home’s structural integrity. Even if your home is made of wood or another non-brick material, you can likely benefit from our brick repointing service. Most homes have some brick, often in the form of a chimney or foundation wall. In some cases, homes have decorative bricks placed on the exterior while the bulk of the building’s construction is wood. We also repoint interior brick fireplace units to boot.

The bottom line is masonry on homes will only last so long. The mortar between bricks and stone gradually deteriorates, causing cracks to develop and move on in, ultimately weakening the structure. The result of this weakening combined with the freezing and thawing cycle may eventually lead to loosened bricks and stone.

Key Takeaways

Be proactive by reaching out to our team for repointing and you will rest easy knowing the proven brick experts performed repointing the right way. We know the best way to repoint brickwork. Our repair pointing brickwork process removes some of the mortar so it can be replaced with brand new mortar. While other repointing services use cheap or inferior mortar, we strictly use mortar of the highest quality. Our team is well aware of the fact that using the wrong type of mortar has the potential to cause irreversible damage.

  • If your home or other building has brick, it needs repointing
  • Repointing must be done in a precise manner to make the intended impact
  • Only trust the best to repoint your home’s brick

It’s time to start reviewing what the latest trends for bathrooms are in 2021. If you’re one of the many New Jersey homeowners who are planning a bathroom renovation in the upcoming year then you’ll want to take a gander at what the top designers and builders are recommending as the current bathroom trends. It’s shaping up to be a year of mixed moods and styles, from the chic and urbane to the conspicuously luxurious to the earthy and natural. So read on and we’ll answer your questions about what are the latest trends for bathrooms in 2021.

Top Bathroom Trends For 2021

  • Glass Showers – Glass-enclosed showers will be in demand this year, with clear glass preferred over the frosted variety. A glass shower lends a sense of modern, futuristic sophistication, and serves as a display case for your creative tile designs as well as making a smaller bathroom appear larger than it is.
  • Gold and Brass Accents – Gold fixtures and accents, as well as brass, will be in this upcoming year just as they were in 2020. Look for brushed and subdued finishes for your fixtures, towel holders, and cabinet handles rather than shiny flashy ones.
  • Patterned Tiles – What are the latest trends in bathroom tiles? Manufacturers are creating tiles in a huge variety of geometric designs and patterns, and consumers are responding by using them creatively. You can choose from a bewildering selection of finishes, textures, and shapes. Stylistically, it’s hard to go wrong with whatever you choose. However, matte finishes and subdued colors seem to be slightly more popular, though glossy tiles and brightly colored patterned tiles will also be common in 2021 bathroom renovations.
  • Muted Colors – As mentioned with tiles, muted, subdued colors seem to be leading the way in what colors are trending for bathrooms in the upcoming year. Light and airy greens and blues will be popular, as well as rose and pink, and gray. Darker colors can be used too, especially with contrasting accents. Bright colors are out this year unless used in a geometric tile pattern.
  • Modern Tubs & Sinks – Large bathtubs with modern contemporary designs will be trendy in 2021, as well as imaginative and industrial-style sinks. You’ll find a lot of artistic designs on the market, some that are almost works of modern art, yet functional and comfortable.
  • Underfloor Heating – When the weather is cold outside an underfloor heating system can be a welcome comfort. New technologies make underfloor and under-counter heating systems viable in just about any bathroom space and they can be used in conjunction with most materials including tile, wood, vinyl, and concrete.
  • Natural Decor & Accessories – With so many contemporary and sophisticated elements going into 2021 bathroom trends it makes sense to offset that with natural touches to create a comfortable and relaxing environment. Wood accessories, scented candles, and live plants/flowers will combine to provide coziness and a personal touch.
  • Smart Bathroom Technology – Like every other room in the home smart features are available for the bathroom. Now you can add voice-activated lighting and heat, showers that can be controlled remotely and be ready when you walk in, mirrors that you can converse with, smart sinks, mini-refrigerators, Bluetooth speaker systems, TVs, and more. The possibilities are endless. And of course, you’ll want to include spaces to hold all your devices in your bathroom remodel designs.

Key Takeaways:

  • 2021 bathroom trends like sophisticated and contemporary will be in.
  • Muted colors like light and airy greens, blues, and pinks, as well as, geometric tiles will be popular.
  • Smart bathrooms will be in more demand than ever before in 2021.

If you’re a New Jersey homeowner planning a bathroom renovation in 2021, Affordable Home Services can make it happen. Call us at 1-973-473-4830 or contact us online for a free consultation and estimate.

Although 2020 has been a very interesting year, nothing stops new styles and fashions from coming into the limelight each year, and kitchen cabinet trends are no exception. If you’re planning your kitchen renovation this year, one of the most important kitchen trends to avoid in 2020 is dull, drab, and boring. In 2020, kitchen remodels are all about taking risks and being bold. So let’s take a look at some of the newest kitchen trends in 2020!

2020 Kitchen Cabinet Trends

Open Kitchen Shelving

The doors have been coming off this year as open shelves have become popular. They can free up valuable space in smaller kitchens and increase convenience because you can simply reach in a grab what you need. They also allow you to get creative with displaying colorful bowls, jars, and utensils. Open shelves can contribute nicely to both a rustic and a minimalist look.

Pastels & Cool Tones

Although it may not seem to fit with the bold and risky theme declared above, kitchen cabinet color trends in 2020 have been leaning toward cooler tones like gray, white, blue, green, and even pink, and pastels in general. Customized colors are big this year too with homeowners desiring a unique hue that specifically fits their kitchen and their personal tastes.

Transitional Designs

One of the newest kitchen trends in 2020 is making use of transitional styles in design layout, which simply means mixing traditional designs with more modern styles. You might choose to put Shaker cabinets alongside industrial-looking open shelves, for example. Or colorful art deco cabinets alongside plain wood shelving. The transitional design allows you to indulge your whimsy to create a truly eclectic look.

Wood Cabinet Finishes

Wood is a mainstay of kitchen cabinet trends, perennially popular, but the finish preferences can and do change. Cerused cabinet finishes are big in 2020, which is the process of using several different types of stains and pigments to bring out the natural grain of the wood in striking contrasts. Also popular is using reclaimed wood for cabinets from old barns and fences and what have you. It’s environmentally friendly and very cozy.

Under Cabinet Lighting

Lights placed underneath the kitchen cabinets continue to increase in popularity this year, mainly due to the availability of LED lights and a move away from incandescent bulbs given the heat and energy bills they create. LED lights now come in a variety of designs which makes them very versatile for use in places where traditional lights wouldn’t work. They are available in many different colors, last for years, and use a fraction of the electricity that incandescent bulbs use. Fluorescent and Xenon bulbs are other options.

Brass Cabinet Accents

Sometimes kitchen trends come back around, and that’s the case with brass accents this year. They were popular for a while back in the 1990s and they’ve made an encore as one of the 2020 kitchen cabinet trends. However, it’s not the shiny brass that’s in, but the brushed finished accents that are in demand.

Smart Technology Storage

It’s 2020 and you can’t escape smart gadgets, even in the kitchen. You’ll want to plan spaces in your cabinetry to accommodate smart device docking stations or holders for your mobile devices to use while you’re following a recipe or watching a show. You might also want to incorporate built-in wireless speakers and TVs in your cabinets.

In Summary:

  • Bold and risky cabinetry is in for 2020.
  • Customized colors like pastels of pink, green, and blue hues are trending as homeowners desire a unique hue that fits their personal taste.
  • Spaces to store smart devices in your kitchen and cabinetry are recommended.

Winter is right around the corner! This is the perfect time to ensure your windows are capable of keeping the heat inside and preventing the cold air from moving into your living space. The windows you select are important for reasons beyond aesthetics and security. Choosing the correct window type and quality makes a meaningful difference in terms of your comfort as well as your home’s heating bill. If you are even slightly worried about your windows’ ability to keep the cold air out and the warm air inside, lean on our team for window replacement with energy-efficient windows.

Window Types in Terms Glass and Style

The northern part of the country is chock full of homes with traditional window types such as double and single-hung windows. However, homes with more of a modern look often have sliding and casement windows with seamless and clean sightlines. What matters most is the insulation.

The proper insulation keeps the cold air outside and the warm air indoors. As an example, Low-E glass made with argon blocks provides considerable insulation. The argon helps keep the warm indoor air you paid to heat exactly where it should be – inside.

What About the Window Pane?

Opt for double or triple pane windows as opposed to a single pane. The single-pane variety simply does not hold the heat indoors when the temperatures dip down low and the winds pick up. A triple or double pane window composed of Low-E glass is treated with a metallic coating that is specifically made to filter light into the home with the overarching goal of keeping it warm during the winter months.

The strategic design of triple and double pane windows ensures the sunlight can move into your living space amidst the frigid winter months. The moral of this story is the best winter windows are highlighted by well-insulated glass that allows the sun’s rays to move inside while preventing the cold from seeping in.

Window Frames Matter

Window frames are commonly overlooked as they are fairly subtle and located along the perimeter of the glass. The windows you select should be highlighted by a frame suitable for cold weather. After all, the frame is the part of the window where heat is most likely to escape. In particular, the window frame’s perimeter, sill, and sash are likely to allow air to escape, wasting the money you spent to warm the interior of your home, business, or other building.

Opt for extreme cold weather windows with a frame comprised of composite, fiberglass, vinyl, or wood. The ideal combination is wood complete with vinyl cladding that holds the heat inside your home. The addition of vinyl helps safeguard the integrity of the wood. Fiberglass and vinyl frames will also suffice yet fiberglass is comparably expensive. Above all, it is in your interest to bypass aluminum frames as they do not hold heat inside your home as well as other frame materials.

Key Takeaways:

  • Your home’s windows determine your comfort and monthly heating bill
  • Our team makes window replacement or repair quick, easy, and affordable

If your New Jersey home requires a new roof then it’s a great time to consider replacing it with energy-efficient shingles. It’s an opportunity to turn your roof into something that saves you money on your utility bills rather than contributing to the high cost. Energy-efficient asphalt shingles have many advantages over other kinds, the costs are similar, and installation is the same. Affordable Home Services has extensive experience with energy-efficient asphalt shingles in NJ and can help you choose the best roof for energy efficiency for your home, as well as ensure they are installed correctly. A new roof using energy-efficient singles is one of the best home improvements you can make.

What Are Energy Efficient Shingles?

Energy-efficient asphalt shingles, or solar reflective shingles, are designed to reflect the hot UV rays of the sun. In the summer, your roof can heat up to very high temperatures, and this heat is transferred into your home. This means your air conditioning system has to work harder to keep your home cool and comfortable, driving up the cost of your bills. Energy-efficient shingles are manufactured from several different materials that both reflect sunlight well and lose heat quickly. Cool roof technology using solar reflective shingles can greatly reduce the amount of heat that is transferred into your home, keeping you more comfortable and saving you money.

Benefits Of Energy Efficient Shingles

  • Lower utility bills – This is the primary reason to install energy-efficient asphalt shingles on your home. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated that new roof energy savings can save you up to 15% of the electricity you use to run your air conditioner. That may not sound like much at first glance, but it quickly adds up over time.
  • Longer roof life – The UV rays of the sun and heat will slowly deteriorate your roof over time. Because energy-efficient shingles reflect much of this radiation, this process is greatly slowed down. On average a roof installed using energy will last for 30 years or longer.
  • Tax credit – Some types of energy-efficient shingles will qualify you for a federal Energy Star tax credit of up to 30%, which can be significant.

Energy-efficient shingles are available in a wide variety of colors and styles. There is something to fit any type of home decor or style.
