“The house was in quite a state upon our initial visit and we were none too eager to set foot in it. We were hired to do the cleanup, demolition and renovation. In the summer of 2013, dressed in Hazmat gear, we began the process and did the initial cleanup.
The demolition began in the fall of 2013 and included the removal of a basement apartment, a total tear out of the loft and the removal of steel boiler pipes and radiators. The material that was removed and could not be reused was recycled.
The renovation began in early 2014. The interior and exterior of the house received a total facelift.
In the process we tried to salvage and reuse everything we could. The plaster/stucco walls were repaired, refinished and painted. The woodwork including all the trim, doors, entire wall shelving unit, and staircases were refinished and reused.
Any trims that needed to be replaced were matched to the existing ones to keep the old feel. All of the hardwood floors were refinished. The panelled ceilings were repaired and painted. The brick fireplace was refurbished and painted. The exterior brick and concrete steps were repaired.
The project was completed in June, 2014.”
