Did you know that almost every home needs a tranquilizer to help deaden nerve racking sounds. Many acoustic experts rate noise as a number one pollutant.
Up to 70% of annoying sounds can be controlled within the room by installing acoustical ceiling tile.
The tile is installed over any old ceiling. You can choose from 16 different decorator designs. The tiles are flame resistant and easy to keep clean with a damp cloth.
I thought you would like to now the beginnings of DeGeorge - now over 50 years in business!
Phil DeGeorge, the founder of DeGeorge Ceilings, Flooring and Custom Cabinetry, was involved in a seasonal business of black topping driveways back in the 50's. Profits were not large enough for a young ambitious man so Phil DeGeorge decided to do something about this. He was determined to go into a business all People needed the year round.
In 1955 DEGEORGE CEILINGS, INC., was established.
On our HISTORY PAGE you can read about our founder Phil DeGeorge - how he started the business in the 50's.
There is a funny anecdote I wanted to tell you about.
One of his favorite stories deals with the housewife who went down to the basement for a few minutes to finish her laundry and come up to find a new ceiling and workmen gone. "She wouldn't believe it," Phil said. "She had to call us back with a ladder, so she could climb up and check each tile."
It was Phil DeGeorge standard to be able to put up a ceiling in 30 minutes! Phil was a very dynamic person.
