COLLEGE POINT, N.Y., April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In light of continued economic tumult, city and state governments across the country are facing budget cuts. With less funding than usual, many of these municipal governments are making tough decisions about which civic services to reduce or altogether discontinue. In New York City, it is the Parks Department that faces uncertainty, a fact that has many New Yorkers in an uproar. Indeed, the New York Daily News reports that many citizens are concerned that a slash in parks spending means a slash in overall quality of life. But as New York and other cities face turmoil over these and other issues, a company called Mascon Restoration is offering solutions to urban beautification needs.
Mascon Restoration is a company founded on the principle of increasing quality of life through the restoration and revitalization of urban areas, a tenet that gets to the heart of the current debate in New York City. While city officials contend that they lack the funds necessary to maintain urban landscaping, community members argue that maintenance to urban areas is vital for maintaining high standards of living.
The Daily News article points back to similar debates that took place in the New York City of the 1970's. During that era, the article says, many parks and streetscapes went rapidly downhill as a result of budget cuts, and with them went the quality of life enjoyed by New Yorkers.
Mascon Restoration, meanwhile, has announced a new series of urban renewal services, designed to offer an alternative to city areas seeking revitalization on a limited budget. Though the company does not offer urban landscaping, it does offer extensive restoration services for older buildings, including basic cleaning of stone, brick, marble, and granite.
And Mascon Restoration offers numerous other services besides these, all designed to provide higher standards of visual appeal—and thus higher quality of living—within urban areas. Some of these services include masonry restoration, roofing, and even waterproofing. For cities looking to make some more basic, minor improvements, meanwhile, the company provides graffiti-proofing. This service is preventative, keeping city governments from having to spend money on major clean-up projects down the road.
In addition to these urban revitalization options, Mascon Restoration continues to offer many of the services it has long been known for in the New York area. Initially, the company was founded to provide cities with an efficient way to bring older buildings up to current construction standards. Mascon Restoration offers violation removal work for areas in need, another way in which they seek to make cities more beautiful while ultimately increasing quality of living.
Mascon Restoration is a construction company that serves the greater New York area, and provides extensive services in masonry restoration, roofing, waterproofing, and general restoration. These restoration services range from brick and stone cleaning to marble and granite restoration. In addition, the company provides scaffold drops for facade inspection, and Local Law 11 violation removal work. The company's mission is to emphasize superior service as well as excellent craftsmanship.
