“Several years ago I had to deal with Landmarks and it was a drawn out difficult process. The next time I needed work done on the front of my brownstone, I hired Top Hat to take care of the complicated Landmark approval process and to manage the subcontractors. I was so pleased with the outcome and the fact that everything was taken care of on my behalf.”

– Richard S., Upper Westside Brownstone Owner

Landmark Preservation & Green Initiatives


Landmark Preservation

If you are lucky enough to own a landmarked building in New York, Top Hat Home Services is the best-qualified company to preserve its integrity and character.

Top Hat Carefully Protects and Restores Landmarked Buildings

Whether altering or updating infrastructure, installing state-of-the-art technology, or making improvements or repairs, we carefully follow all legal requirements of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Where restoration is required, Top Hat secures the appropriate permits and works in ways that carefully attend to every detail. We have multiple sources to locate the exact replacement materials needed, and our licensed contractors are highly experienced in the renewal and repair of historic structures.

Green Initiatives

In our conservation-conscious society, many building owners are saving money by making their properties more energy efficient, taking advantage of tax incentives and helping the planet all at the same time.

In April, 2012, the city of New York adopted a “Zone Green” amendment, removing “a wide range of impediments to the construction and retrofitting of greener buildings.” Another recent city amendment addressed preserving and enhancing the street-scape character of residential neighborhoods.

Top Hat is your green initiatives specialist, expert in everything from energy efficient windows to solar panels and green roofs, to tree plantings and landscape design. Top Hat Home Services is adept in all manner of green initiatives.

Owners now have more choices on how to make wise investments. Top Hat helps you take advantage of these opportunities while making your property a model of 21st century efficiency.
