From the Times Ledger:
At least several times per year, longtime Bayside contractor Mitchell Kersch can rightfully boast that his Clearview Expressway−based business offers the lowest prices.
Kersch’s grandfather opened Major Homes Corp. in Corona in 1919 after moving to the United States from Poland. The company moved to Bayside in 1974 and, at age 17, Kersch took over the business from his ailing father and completed his college education through night school.
Kersch, 52, who now lives in Roslyn, L.I., and his son, Jason, 25, operate the home−remodeling company from 48−52 Clearview Expressway in Bayside. The business offers a variety of services, including window installation, roofing and siding, as well as kitchen and bath work.
He said he loves giving back to the northeast Queens and Long Island communities from which his customers hail. So his company undertakes several projects free of charge per year for customers who need a helping hand.
