materials of any kind”, say owner Yeheskel Sharbani. “But
for a variety of reasons we, at Elite kitchen and Bath and Express
Contracting, decided to make a concerted effort to do our part
with making our business become more and more green and offering
Green Building Options to our clients. Sometimes things meet a
critical mass and it inspires change. It’s what is happening
in our country, in the world and it is happening in our company.
As a matter of fact, it’s past our 25th Business Anniversary
and we see this is a great way forward toward the next 25 years.”

clients about a variety of issues related to Energy Efficiency

100% Green. Part of sustainability is practicality and longevity,
so we’re taking steps one at a time. And that’s what
we’re offering to our clients. No pressure. No browbeating.
Whatever feels comfortable and appropriate to the project is being
offered out of green materials or green mechanical techniques.
