Wrapping posts on rubber roof

Below are two videos showing techniques for wrapping and sealing the posts during a recent rubber roof installation in Watertown, MA. Using Elastoform flashing, you can see how easy it is to create an air tight, and therefore water tight seal on the roof.

Chimney Repair

A lot of times customers will not want to pay for a new chimney or replace an old chimney, even though the existing structure may be unsafe. This is definitely something that needs to be addresses BEFORE a major problem happens. For instance, a major storm may knock bricks loose, which could fall unexpectedly on children or people below. A chimney left in this condition can also result in major leaks in the winter.

In this case, our customer’s chimney in Wellesley, MA was falling apart and also had a problem with a bat nest inside. While they were unable to replace the entire chimney at this time, we were able to reconstruct enough of it to make sure it is safe and will last for years to come. When they do decide to complete the job, the chimney can be covered with veneer and it will look brand new.

If you have a problem with your chimney or chimney cap, call us at 617-924-1133, and let us discuss the options. It may cost far less than you think to have it safely repaired, and save a lot of potential damage in the long run.

New Azek Deck Construction

Recently we completed the building of an Azek deck for a customer in Framingham, MA. This deck is approximately 500 sq. feet and took 360 man hours to build (about 9 days for a crew of 5).

It is an Azek deck planking with a Trademark handrail with solar caps. Lights up nicely in the evening.

This is a very high quality, beautiful high-end deck. The total cost of this deck is approximately $22,800. $12,000 for material and approximately $11,000 for labor.

If you are considering an outdoor deck and would like an estimate for your project, please call us today at 617-924-1133.

Installing Harvey New Construction Windows

These windows are made with vinyl J-Channel trim so when we do the siding, we can drop it right inside. These new construction windows sit flush on the outside, and after the windows are attached we will tape the sides so it is air tight and water tight.

These windows can also be used on a complete renovation, but you will have to tear down the molding on the outside.
