Ingenious Fix/Upgrade for Vinyl Siding Corners – Patented
CLIP-ON SUPERCORNERS™ ~ DISRUPTING THE VINYL SIDING INDUSTRY IN THREE WAYS!
Clip-On SuperCorners™ has begun to refashion and disrupt the entire vinyl siding industry by:
1. Providing an innovative and imaginative new fix for owners of vinyl sided homes with broken, cracked or faded vinyl siding corners.
2. Providing this same innovative and imaginative new product for ALL vinyl sided home owners who want to quickly, easily and affordably increase their home’s curb appeal and market value. And by …
3. Providing vinyl siding contractors with an ingenious, more practical, less expensive and easily “replaceable” vinyl siding corner to install on new construction homes.
All three of these amazing new solutions simply weren’t available prior to the invention of our new patented product.
CLIP-ON SUPERCORNERS™ ~ IMAGINATIVE AND INNOVATIVE NEW FIX!
Damaged vinyl siding corner problems can now be solved in minutes, rather than hours, with time and cost savings of over 70% or more!
There are 36 million vinyl sided homes in the US and Canada. Our research tells us that more than 6% of these (2.1 million) have unsightly, broken, cracked, or faded corners. Prior to Clip-On SuperCorners™, the only way to fix this problem was to:
For the 34 million other vinyl sided home owners, it’s only a matter of time before those vinyl corners break, chip, or crack. (See samples below!)
All it takes is one falling branch, an errant baseball, a rogue weed wacker, a hail storm or even ice or snow shooting off a snowblower or plow truck.
Clip-On SuperCorners™ solves the damaged and unsightly vinyl corner problem by providing a superior replacement solution. In only a fraction of the time it previously took to repair, a homeowner can now quickly attach Clip-On SuperCorners™ over existing corners with just 3 easy steps.
IN THREE EASY STEPS
It took only 44 minutes to install “Clip-On SuperCorners(TM)” on this colonial. That’s only 11 minutes per corner!
Best of all, this quick fix is D.I.Y., a true Do-It-Yourself project. If you can climb a ladder, you can install Clip-On SuperCorners™ easily and quickly. Aside from a “solution” which takes enormous amounts of time and can actually do more harm than good, Clip-On SuperCorners™ is the only financially feasible fix for homeowners looking to repair their siding corners.
If the upgrade/repair (above) had been done the traditional way, it would have taken a contractor about 10-12 hours to change out these four corners! The cost savings of labor and material, as demonstrated below, is $780 which is more than 75%. If you D.I.Y and save the $60 install, your savings increases to $840. That’s an 81% .
INCREASING CURB APPEAL & MARKET VALUE
CLIP-ON SUPERCORNERS™ ~INCREASING CURB APPEAL & MARKET VALUE
Even homeowners without vinyl corner problems (34 million) will want to use this innovative and ingenious new fix to increase their home’s character, beauty, distinction and charm, aka… curb appeal and market value!
Whether they’re looking to list their home for sale, improve their home after a purchase or if it’s simply time to demonstrate more pride in homeownership, Clip-On SuperCorners™ also provides a quick, easy, and affordable facelift to vinyl sided homes.
Below is a before and after slide show of “SuperCornered” homes demonstrating this enhanced curb appeal.
MORE PRACTICAL, REPLACEABLE CORNERS FOR ALL NEW INSTALLS
In addition to the home improvement market, Clip-On SuperCorners™ also has the potential to disrupt the status quo of ALL current vinyl siding sales for new construction installs .
Contractors instantly recognize the ingenuousness of our new product and will soon love the possibility of installing “replaceable” vinyl corners on all new construction homes.
By providing this new and more affordable approach, vinyl siding contractors will soon realize that installing Clip-On SuperCorners™, in addition to being more practical, is less expensive than what’s currently available, which is the traditional wide 5 1/2″ corner post with styrofoam backing. This older, traditional vinyl siding product will soon go the way of the electric typewriter.
THE CLIP-ON SUPERCORNER™ STORY
In 2012, Brandon Yarmo purchased one of his dad‘s real estate listings to fix and flip. Brandon wanted to replace the small existing vinyl corners to improve the home’s curb appeal and increase its market value. After learning how time consuming, labor intensive, and challenging that process was, he did extensive research to see if there was a “clip-on” version that would look just as good, but save him time, money, and effort.
He searched Home Depot, Lowes, Harvey Industries, local building supply stores, and many websites but found nothing like this in existence. He then decided to make his revelation a reality himself.
On May 19, 2015 the U.S. Patent Office awarded a utility patent for Clip-On SuperCorners™ to the Brandon and Paul’s new company, The Jarmalow Company, LLC. Since then, two other patents have been started and are soon to be added to our list of protected Intellectual Property. [See Business Plan for more information.]
We were also notified recently that the Canadian Patent Office will be issuing a patent on Clip-On SuperCorners™ in January of 2016.
After spending more than a year developing and perfecting our prototype throughout the manufacturing process, we placed our first order of 10,000 linear feet of Clip-On SuperCorners™ with our manufacturer, Keller Products of Manchester, NH last August.
Here is a photo of Brandon with his new invention at our warehouse in Nashua, New Hampshire.
Keller Products was also instrumental in helping us perfect the prototype.
Our next goal at this point in our venture is to take Clip-On SuperCorners™ to the big box stores. We are currently involved in detailed discussions with the Home Depot Regional Manager about product placement in 40+ New England stores and with the store-wide lead “Merchant” for siding and roofing.
Big box stores like Home Depot only actively carry products up to the 16 foot mark and our standard sizes are 10 foot and 20 foot lengths. The solution however is quite easy — simply manufacturing a connector piece for taller two-story homes — we just need the funding to make it happen. Please see the business plan tab of this profile for details.
Here is an early design of what the Home Depot / Lowes display will look like:
Once we’re in a small number of local and regional Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardwares, etc, we will develop a sales action plan to assure success in those areas and to then expand nationwide. Networking and establishing connections with local contractors is also high on our priority list. We intend to make Clip-On SuperCorners™ not only seen as a repair solution, but as an upgrade for existing homes AND a desireable new build solution as well.

CLIP-ON SUPERCORNER™ ~ CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORIES
MARIA K. – Hudson NH ~
“I really wanted the broken vinyl siding corners on my home fixed before relatives arrived from Greece for my son’s wedding. With wedding expenses and all, I didn’t want to pay a contractor $1200 to spend a day or two doing these repairs. I couldn’t believe it when my son found Clip-On SuperCorners™. In less than 90 minutes and for less than $300, our problem was solved (with my son, the groom, doing the work! ) I was also surprised to see that the wider corners actually made the house look better, adding more charm and distinction to my 25 year old home. Thank you, Clip-On SuperCorners™”
Total Savings: $800!
Mike and Debbie C. ~ Windham, NH
“After 6 weeks on the market our real estate agent suggested a price reduction or we could try a “facelift” using this brand new product called “Clip-On SuperCorners™. We hired a contractor to “clip on” seven corners onto our 2-story Colonial. The install cost just $660 and took only 3 hours to complete. I was amazed at the before and after difference. It really made the house “pop”. Eight days later, our house went under contract without a listing price reduction!”
Total Savings: $1500 + no list price reduction!
