This was an extensive restoration project that included redoing the roof, fixing and restoring the exterior wood clapboards and trim, and refinishing the exterior with new paint application.

The old cedar roofing was completely removed and rotting in the sublayer was corrected. A cedar breather system was applied to the sublayer and new red oak taper sawn shingles were installed. Copper flashing was installed along with a new copper gutter over the rear entry.

Several of the clapboards were in need of replacement or repair. We used Spruce clapboards and installed the clapboards with scarf joints and replica clinch nails. The entire house was re-nailed and sealed. New custom moldings were made for several areas of the house, including the front entryway where we refinished much of the front door surround. We installed a new Mahogany threshold and finished the project off with new brownstone slab stairs.

The last phase of the project was the paint restoration. We completed full prep on the house and applied our three-coat paint system to recondition the clapboards.
