[www.inewsguyana.com] – There are hundreds of booths at GuyExpo, but most persons seem to flock Windsor Estates, Southland International Inc, Sterling Products and the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T). To satisfy our curiosity, iNews decided to feature these four companies to find out what it is that is capturing the attention of the Guyanese public.
A new housing developer in Guyana, Windsor Estates is offering the Guyanese population a new standard of living – the North American Standards. Speaking with iNews, Sales Manager Clyde Wilson explained that the company is developing a gated community at the back of the Republic Park area.
This development will have warranties on the roof, foundation and structure.
“It would be built on North American Standards. Our homes will have five year warranty on the foundation and structure and ten year warranty on all of our roofs. That is something that has never been done in Guyana and that is something we’re very serious about because we think the Guyanese people deserve something different and something get their monies worth basically,” Wilson said.
Navigant Builders, the developers of Windsor Estates headquartered in Bel Air Park Georgetown, is subsidiary of Stonewall Contracting Corporation in College Point New York. Stonewall has been in business since 1990.
