Single Family Renovations

A home remodeling/renovation project can be any home improvement such as adding a bathroom, finishing a basement, building an addition, installing new windows, building a rooftop deck, replacing siding, remodeling a kitchen, or re-doing a master bathroom. We work with single family units, and lean towards row homes.

Types of Renovations / Remodeling / Restorations

Row houses are typically built in classic designs that date to the period when they were built, often in the nineteenth century or earlier. American cities known for blocks lined with historical row houses include New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Washington D.C.

Homeowners often see an increased value in their home as a result of a renovation project. Another advantage to a remodeling project or renovation is that it will result in a more energy efficient rowhome. Yet another advantage to Interior and Exterior Remodeling is the opportunity to reconfigure the layout of the home to accommodate changing lifestyle/lifecycle needs.

Different types of additions include Building up higher, Building out covering more square footage, adding a new garage, and/or putting on an exterior deck.

Basement Finishing Philadelphia

 A finished basement is another way to provide extra living space in a home. Adding a laundry room and/or creating a play area (club space) for children or grandchildren are common uses for finished basements.

This is another type of popular renovation for people who want to stay put, but need that extra space. A finished basement can add a good return value onto your home.
This strategy assures that all new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems will be installed into the project. 

Any structural issues can be addressed at this stage without concern of damaging existing walls or fixtures since many of these items will be stripped from the property.
