Additions & Renovations
A renovation or addition can be transformative. With your inspiration and our professional design expertise, your existing spaces can be re-imagined. That dated kitchen can become a bright, modern, gourmet delight. Your master bath can become your very own dreamy spa. Add the family room you’ve always wanted. It’s your home. Make it perfect for you!
Decks, Garages & Sheds
Take your back yard to the next level with a beautiful new deck. Make it a magical oasis. A quaint little garden shed would make your life easier and tidier. Or maybe you’re sick of a snow covered car, and a new garage is just the ticket! Your home & property is your castle. It should be beautiful, functional, and make you want to use and enjoy it.
Roofing, Repairs & More
We can repair or replace your shingled or metal roof. While home repairs can often appear simple, they may be indicative of more serious issues that require attention, to prevent future problems. Don’t gamble with your home. When it comes to your safety, our professional construction and carpentry expertise is always your smartest move.
Insulated Concrete Forms
No matter the heating source that you prefer, constructing your space using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) can help to drastically reduce the costs of heating your home or business. ICFs allow home and business owners to shield their space against the winter cold as well as the summer heat. We have experience in constructing ICF buildings.
1) Buildings made with Insulated Concrete Forms have greater structural strength than that of traditional builds.
2) Buildings made with Insulated Concrete Forms can often be completed in less time than would be needed in traditional builds.
3) Insulated Concrete Form builds are often more energy efficient and require less heating and cooling, resulting in cheaper utility costs.
4) Walls made with Insulated Concrete Forms hold up far better to fire than traditional wood-frame walls.
5) Buildings made with Insulated Concrete Forms blocks sound better than traditional builds.
