Case Studies

1. Fixing a Damaged & Inefficient Home Exterior

Project Type: Siding, windows

Challenge: Old, damaged and inefficient home exterior 

Solution: Siding and window replacement that last a lifetime while enhancing and protecting the owner’s post-retirement home

Jeff and Judy’s hole-ridden, 27-year-old siding and leaky, disintegrating windows had seen better days. After deciding to stay put post-retirement, they came to us for a remodeling solution to protect their home from the elements for years to come. Like many home remodelers, Jeff and Judy wanted double-duty siding—something that would both match and enhance their home’s existing style. With the expertise of a dedicated sales person, they carefully considered a variety of pricing options and color schemes before choosing substantial, natural-stained cedar composite siding to suit their home and wooded neighborhood.

Tired of damaged and outdated windows jeopardizing their daily comfort, Jeff and Judy decided to remodel with Renewal by Andersen® casement style replacement windows. When you choose Andersen windows, you can take comfort in knowing that these high quality windows will provide style and energy efficiency for years to come. Our homeowners love how easy-open and easy-close their new windows are while staying tightly sealed to the elements—and the 20 year warranty doesn’t hurt either.


It can be nerve-racking to leave your house open to complete strangers during a remodel. Jeff and Judy were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by kind, courteous craftsmen who left behind a clean house at the end of every day. If other remodeling companies have left your home littered with stray nails or dirty footprints, you’ll love our squeaky-clean working habits.

Jeff and Judy’s siding and window project encountered several unforeseen roadblocks. Instead of passing these unplanned issues off on the homeowners, we problem-solved by calling in a skilled electrician and innovating special ipe wood drain systems to repair old leaks in their deck.

Post-remodel, Jeff and Judy are enjoying the comfort of their modern, cozy home. They’re in love with their wood grain LP Smartside compressive epoxy-composite siding and top-quality Andersen casement windows—which are both protected by extensive warranties.
