5 King St, Exterior Restoration 24/06/2020

This project had the following done;

Front 2nd floor porch was gutted. New flat roofing, re transformed with midnight blue aluminum, all custom flashed.

All the wood trim on the entire house was re fastened into the brick, and all re surfaced. New aluminum railings in black to compliment the new porch.

Brick work to replace the large cracks shown in the pictures. All the metal on the window tops where grinded and repainted. All basement metal frames were grinded down and repainted.

The foundation was also re surfaced on 1 side of the home. This project took 6 weeks and all custom work was done on site.

7 King St Boxed window & Porch 23/06/2020

This project from 2018 had the front boxed window restored. In removing the rotten boards, I replaced them with "Select Pine" premium boards, to ensure the original architectural details are preserved. Custom bent aluminum is fabricated on site for the best fit as everything is custom. Cedar shake siding in the dormer, along with the trim below the soffits.

The other front boxed window was custom flashed as well as the porch post.

R & M Freeman residence 19/06/2020

This is the second album from the Freeman's home renovations.
This home had a 10 ft cut opening on the second story back end, on a sloped hill. Also a side window, and a basement window cut opening into the brick wall and thru the solid foundation wall. 2 more albums to follow named Freeman's.

Boxed Window Restoration- 16/06/2020

This boxed window was cold and allowing the wind to come thru the seams. In replacing the rotten wood with select pine, custom ripped, ready for custom aluminum flashing. New plywood, Tyvek, and Foundry- polymer shake siding.

Mai Residence- Post & Railings 13/06/2020

Howcroft Residence Porch Restoration 13/06/2020

This porch was restored by resurfacing, and re-leveling the concrete base. New Oaks brick pavers where installed on the face and top surface.

A new Aria series 4 ft step was installed to compliment and bring an architectural feature to this well maintained home here in Barrie. Also a small retainer wall was built to add character to this corner lot.

K.Sinclair Chiminey 08/05/2020

This gorgeous finished chimney was a fun project. This home was kept in the family since it was build and luckily, their was 5 original bricks left over. Cold winters on the lake and heat loss slowly destroyed its integrity.

D & B Saulders Residence - Brick repair 08/05/2020

This home entrance is another victim of longwinters, salt and snow build up against the wall, a poorly sloped interlock which leads water to the wall.

A nerd note here: bricks are porous, as is concrete. They absorb moisture, water like a sponge and water eventual comes thru the wall into the basement or garage. I had to dig down, clean the wall, apply new parging, new dam proofing, followed by over 24 bricks replaced, color matched. My goal is to always leave my work with no evidence of being repaired! A skill lacking in today's markets
