What we do...

Addition

Home Additions

We can build most any house you want, it’s the location that is hard to replicate.

We cannot do anything about the location for you, however your house can repaired, renewed or replaced.

Our specialty is renew, keeping the bones and general structure. Repairing as dictated by budget or replacing due to eminent structural failure.

We want you to have a home you’re proud of.

Foundation

Foundation Repair

The foundation dictates many things. Whether you are considering an addition or just need to stop water from entering the basement.

Foundations are typically made of concrete, wood or other materials.

At some point in the foundations life a crack forms. From the point on, the elements start to attack it regularly, year after year. Our specialty is to renew the crack and separate the elements from the foundation.

As with all our work we isolate the cause, which is 99% on the exterior and make the repairs. We put the raincoat on the outside of the house rather than on the inside like so many other contractors do.

Injecting cracks with specialty products is “part” of a system that many small contractors and homeowners can do themselves. The other part is removing the cause of the failure is by far the most important.

“this is equivalent to leaving a rock in your shoe for a life time of walking, the bandaid box will eventually become empty and permanent damage will be imminent”

Knob and Tube

Electrical Upgrades

Making better use of space does mean changing how the electrical services are used.

Codes have changed for very good reasons. The number one reason is safety. Bedrooms are protected by arc fault circuits, using smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in these rooms is a no brainer. Ground fault breakers have been around for some time now, that does not mean all homes are up to date.

We are still find homes that have very dated wiring, aluminum wire that is incorrectly connected to copper wiring.

And… yes, we removed and replaced knob and tube circa 2016. While we are completing a renovation for you, let us upgrade your home to meet todays requirements.
