Project Description

They always say when you find the perfect house, you will know. Well, when the couple who purchased this adorable 1940s home, they saw nothing but potential for what it could be. They worked on various parts of the house throughout time, and in 2019, they decided it was time to revamp the exterior of their home.

This is when our team received the call that the homeowners were ready to have the original asbestos siding removed, and James Hardie installed it in its place, along with new windows and doors. Our team was happy to help prepare an estimate for their home, using Hover to obtain the needed measurements and conducting our meetings online using Zoom. Our team knew we would need to reach out to our asbestos removal partner, to provide a quote for this portion of the work. You see, the asbestos siding is not a danger to others while on your home, but when you go to remove it, proper procedures need to take place to protect the wellness of the workers and those around the house.

It would take some time before our team would hear back from the owners with a decision, as they wanted to save up more money before moving forward with the project. In June of 2019, we received the call that they wanted to move forward with their exterior project. The project first began with the asbestos removal; then, our team could demo the existing windows and doors. Once the asbestos was removed, the project moved pretty quickly by preparing the walls and installing the siding. Now the homeowners’ dreams of how they envisioned this house are becoming a reality.
