The Branchburg News • May 2011 • Page 7 Dean Carman of Times Siding & Windows to Celebrate 30th Year in Business
Getting ready to celebrate 30 years in business, there’s only one man in Somerset and Hunterdon counties who can be called the “Dean” of sid- ing and windows. He’s Dean Car- man, resident of Branchburg, and owner of the one and only Times Siding & Windows.
It’s safe to say Dean has worked in just about every neighborhood in the area, installing a choice of over 200 different styles and colors of siding — including the new longer panels, vinyl shakes and vinyl board & batten — as well as both replace- ment and Andersen windows of all types. As a result, virtually everyone has a neighbor who can vouch for the quality work of Times Siding & Windows, and the integrity of Dean himself.
petitive and give the customer the biggest bang for the buck.” Still a young man after 30 years in the business, what does Dean Car- man and Times Siding & Windows have planned for the future? “Well, other companies have come and gone, but our way of working has kept us busy for 30 years. I think I’ll keep my finger on the button and continue raising the bar to bring the highest standards available to the consumer,” he said. Dean Carman, owner of Times Siding & Windows, provides free in-home consultations and estimates. Dean can be reached at 908-722-1703. His web site is www.timessiding.com
Times Siding is familiar with all window, trim, siding and cultured stone tech- nologies to achieve whatever look the property owners is seeking.
Entering his 30th year in busi- ness, Dean is also keeping up with the “times” – an example being the trend toward cultured stone as a wall material. Cultured stone, an exact replica of natural stone, is molded
Soda Can Tab Drive Continues
Students from all four of our Branchburg Township schools continue to participate in a community service project to aid Ronald McDonald House. Ronald McDonald House is a non-profit organization that provides a “home away from home” for families of seri- ously ill children who require long-term care.
The students are collect- ing aluminum soda pop tabs throughout the year and will present the tabs to the Ronald McDonald House in June. The money raised by recycling these tabs will be used to off- set household expenses for the families staying at Ronald Mc- Donald House.
Tabs can be deposited at the Branchburg Municipal Build- ing (main office) from now until June. So “save a tab” and help the kids of Branchburg make a difference.
from aggregate materials and weighs about a quarter of traditional stone. It can be adhered to most wall sur- faces.
Dean will be glad to explain it all, person to person. “I’m not only the owner, but I do all the sales,” said Dean. “When people call my company, the person that calls them back is me. I don’t have any sales people. With Times Siding & Win- dows, the owner-operator is person- ally involved in every estimate and installation. This efficient structure, without any layers of management, keeps our overhead and pricing low and helps us run like a well-oiled machine. In fact, I’m not afraid to say we set the standard for all our competitors.”
Dean’s unmatched personal ex- perience goes beyond the job. He maintains his technical licenses as a New Jersey building inspector/sub- code official and is certified in the areas of Residential and Small Com-
mercial (RCS) and Industrial and Commercial (ICS). His company is fully insured, and he attends two to three courses per year on the latest techniques in construction, windows and siding.

As noted above, Dean keeps up on the latest materials and technolo- gies. “I look into all the new prod- ucts and put 30 years of experience into picking the right ones for the customer,” he said. “Today’s siding panels are longer and the material is thicker. Vinyl shakes are becoming more popular. Cultured stone looks exactly like natural stone. Windows are more energy-efficient and now have heat shielding qualities taken from the space program.
“I choose the best materials at the best prices and pass the savings on to the consumer. We have a built- in system of checks and balances on quality and performance and per- sonal service. It has always helped Times Siding & Windows stay com-
