Renovations and Building Repairs

Although we specialize in kitchen and bath remodeling,as those are our most requested projects, our scope of work includes much more.  Some times we are asked to make a house more presentable for sale, or repair damage due to age, or the elements.

Here is a home in Oroville which did not present well.  There had been some improper installation of hot water enclosure and outdated plumbing.  After removing all existing construction we raised up the floor, flashed it properly to house and cleaned up the exterior tie-in with the rest of the home decor.

On this same home there was a breeze way which detracted from a clients first impression.  The vent pipes were boxed in and a symmetrical architectural element was added to the window disguising the chase.

A beautiful home in Gridley had a really nice back yard and pool but no way to enjoy that exterior space in inclement weather. We used some 100 year old timbers the home owner had to construct a pergola with clear Polycarbonate panels.
