Exterior Redesign/Remodel


In this project, we removed all of the siding from the house and are replacing it with new cedar clapboard. We are replacing all of the exterior trim, and many of the windows. We are constructing a new portico over the front door to change the appearance of the entrance of this home. We will be replacing some windows with french doors, which will require revisions to the roof line. We are also replacing the entire roof with EPDM material, and adding architectural railing to a portion of the roofline. This is a major transformation for this house!

Original portico has been removed. This round portico was too small for the front entrance, and the columns obstructed the view of the beautiful original door.

New square portico is in the process of being constructed.

The new portico is complete. We designed and built this new portico to properly accent the front entry. Now the original front door details are visible. We sanded, restored, and painted the front door to return it to its original glory. The 2 new front columns were all that was needed to support the portico structurally, but we installed 2 matching decorative columns with the same profile for design purposes. We added crown and dentil moulding, in addition to a new railing on the widow's walk above the door.

This corner of the house had significant rot in the soffits. We removed and replaced the rot.

This section of the house will undergo a significant transformation. The bay window, single doors, and additional windows will all be removed. Symmetrical sets of new triple-double hung windows will be framed and installed, and a new french door with sidelights will be framed and installed.

Demo for this section of the remodel is underway.

The existing bay window is being removed. Because it is integrated into the roof line, we will be reframing not only the wall but the roofline. New soffits and fascia boards will be installed, along with all new trim. The interior side of this wall will also be reframed, receive new wall board, taping, and paint.

    My husband and I retained GN Construction to paint some common areas of our new home and replace certain fixtures while we were on our honeymoon. They far exceeded our expectations in terms of professionalism, quality and performance. The owner, Guy Neumann, took extra care to ensure that we were 100% satisfied and assisted us with replacing our selected lighting fixture - at no additional charge -due to safety concerns, after it had already been installed! Moreover, the entire process was worry free, our home was spotless when they were finished and they made sure the work was fully completed to their own standards of excellence. I would absolutely recommend GN Construction for any home improvement project, small or big – after vetting numerous contractors, I am confidant that they will provide competitive pricing for superior craftsmanship. We are truly grateful to Guy and GN Construction for helping to make our new home “ours,” and will be calling them in the future to assist us with our ongoing home improvement efforts. Thank you Guy and GN Construction!!

    When we decided to remodel our main bathroom, I took in several quotes. We chose to go with GN Construction and are so glad we did. The owner, Guy, was great from start to finish. He came to the house personally, walked me through the job, made recommendations and checked in during the work to provide updates to the progress and the timeline. The crew that did the job (a full gutting and rebuild) was friendly and professional. The work was done on time, looked amazing, and I found the price to be extremely fair. I'm not sure what else I could ask for? I would not hesitate for a second to recommend GN Construction for any job at your house. In fact, I was pleased enough to bring them back several weeks later for a large painting and repair job and I was once again very pleased with the results!!

    We recently had renovations performed at our home by GN Construction (namely refinishing wood floors) that required us to be out of the house for an extended period. We therefore placed a great deal of trust in GN Construction and we were rewarded with a superior result. The work was performed to budget and on time. We recommend GN Construction and will be using them again in the future.
