Property was also enclosed with a 5' wood fence to allow the owners' Greyhounds to run. A complete transformation of a summer beach cottage into a year-round home.
Removal and replacement of poorly installed composite decking with new Wolf solid PVC decking and trim. Perpendicular boards offer control joints for expansion and contraction. All done while preserving the owner's existing railing system.
Years of leaks and the weather-related abuse that comes from living in a coastal environment caused significant deterioration to this beach home's natural cedar siding. More importantly, the builder did not follow installation guidelines for house wrapping the building. In order to correct the issues, the RPM team first removed all rotted areas of the exterior siding, including the damaged sheathing and underlay. New exterior sheathing was installed and properly flashed to prevent any future water damage. Once all affected areas were removed and replaced, we finished off this project by installing new natural #1 perfection Western Red Cedar shingle siding supplied by American Cedar in Lewes, DE.
Extension of existing Entry Foyer with a new Azek solid PVC decking having a new gable roof above for protection and shade, tied into the existing roofing structure. We installed new Mastic vinyl shake siding on the entire house and installed (5) new windows. New porch columns with stone bases and decorative gable trim were added.
We believe it is very easy on the eyes and the owner couldn't be happier.
Signs of water damage to the interior ceiling and walls led to the discovery of rot throughout the exterior of the property. We verified the water problem with our Infrared Thermal Imaging camera. Once we realized every wall had dampness, we removed all of the existing siding and about 80% of the wet plywood sheathing. The RPM team replaced the window framing, almost all of the underlying sheathing, and properly flashed the sections to prevent future water damage from occurring, using our three-step flashing system. Commercial grade Tyvek house wrap and new Mastic Structured Insulated vinyl siding were installed, as well as new Paradigm vinyl windows to the back side of the home. To finish off this project, the RPM team headed indoors to install new drywall and paint the affected areas.
All of the problems this house had were typical of the 25-30 year old houses we work on, where advanced flashing materials were not available and the products that were used during the original build were poorly installed.
Just a nice boardwalk from the front of the house to the new shower in the rear of the house. Shower interior was finished with smooth maintenance free white Azek sheets and trim. Stone pavers were placed from shower to back deck stairs to allow barefoot walking.
A small make-over on a old beach cottage right in the heart of Bethany Beach. New front porch cedar screen panels, vinyl railings, post enclosures and ceiling with white vinyl lattice enclosure beneath. New rear wood deck and enclosure of a side closed in porch with Azek panels, vinyl trim and ceiling. New removable cedar screen panels as well. The main factor out back was making sure the owner had room to grill and this spacious deck certainly met his need.
Complete interior renovation of a three story home that sustained significant damage from a burst pipe during especially cold weather while the owner was out of town. Work included removal of damaged materials, new insulation, drywall, electrical, replacement of damaged HVAC duct work, painting, new hardwood flooring installation and finishing, new kitchen cabinets and counter tops as well as repairs to improper flashing on the rear of the house which required siding removal and replacement.
Replacement of a pressure treated wood deck with new Wolf solid PVC decking. Notice the perpendicular board that serves as expansion and contraction control as well as a design feature.
Not shown here, all siding on the house was replaced with Mastic Vinyl Insulated Structure siding and vinyl trim which cut utility bills significantly.
Construction of a new sun room for owner to grow her plants and to open the rear view to the dock and canal behind her house. Scissor roof trusses provided an interior cathedral ceiling to allow for a ceiling fan. Ceiling was finished with white vinyl panels and recessed lighting. Ceramic floor tile was installed for the occasional water spill.
New stair framing was installed to allow for solid Wolf PVC decking as well as stairs leading to the front deck. New vinyl rails with aluminum reinforcement were added and posts were finished with vinyl post sleeve trim. Windows were manufactured by Vi-Winco. They all open to allow for interior and exterior cleaning from the inside.
