The owner wanted to modernize their home so we replaced all the windows and doors and added a mixture of modern stucco with  cultured stone to provide for a low maintenance exterior that really helped modernize their home.

 

 

Hail damage insurance work

cedar house deck trex decking

The above house had severe hail damage .  The homeowner had Dillon Contracting, LLC inspect the house and they found damage not only to the roof but also to the siding. The insurance adjuster inspected the house and failed to detect hail damage on the siding.    After this was brought to the adjuster’s attention they included this in their report.  Dillon Contracting, LLC coordinated the tear off and replacement of the new 50-year ashphalt shingle roof and replaced damaged deck with new low-maintenance Trex decking.  The entire home was restained.

Multi family complex facelift

A complete facelift was performed to this multi-unit apartment building.  This included adding new trim above each window and repaired siding and a/c trim as needed.  After repairs were completed, the entire structure was repainted.   A 60′ lift was used which eliminated the need for scaffolding and ladders which significantly shortened the time needed to complete the project.

New Garage

Residential – 26′ x 30′ Garage with 10’x30′ carport.  The garage walls are constructed with 9′ – 2×6 studs for added strength and R-value.  2×6 sissor trusses were used allowing plenty of head height giving it a shop-like feel.  The garage door opening of 18’x8′ gives generous head clearance with ample room on the sides.  The Ammar garage door is solid foam injected and has an R-19 insulation value.   Two – 6040 low-E Jeldwen vinyl windows were installed of the south side of the garage allowing for good lighting inside and for the passive solar benefits.  A 3/8″ cement base coat with 1″ underlining foam and finished with pre-colored synthetic stucco. The fascia is 1×8 resawn cedar and the soffit is 3/8″ Breckenridge Dougles Fir.  The combination of wood and stucco will give the garage a good balance of textures and tones with the added benefit of low maintenance. Ready for final Sto (synthetic stucco) finish coat.

Mold Damage

mold

Mold – Does your attic or crawl space look like this picture?  Unfortunately, most people do not inspect these areas of their home either because access is difficult, or they are out of site and out of mind.

In the past few years, Dillon Contracting, LLC has received a significant increase in the number of calls relating to damaged wood caused by mold.  Not only can mold cause health issues for certain people, it can also damage building materials within your home.  Mold can also hold up the sale of your property and can cost a significant amount of money to remediate.

Moisture/humidity buildup and lack of proper ventilation can provide an environment where mold can grow.  Adequate crawl space and attic ventilation is necessary to help prevent this problem from occurring.

Dillon Contracting, LLC can help with installing proper ventilation features such as crawlspace vents, soffit vents, gable end louvers and power fans for extreme situations. Note – Dillon Contracting, LLC does not perform mold remediation.  This should be left to the professionals specializing in this field.

New Windows

Electra Lake Window Replacement – The new window rough opening was sealed with water and ice shield window wrap.  Prior to the windows being installed, the back side of the window flange was caulked.  Then another layer of  water and ice shield was added over the top of the entire window flange.   Cedar trim was then added to finish the installation.  Caulking was applied to the outside perimeter of the trim and fiberglass insulation was added to any voids along the perimeter of the interior of the window to complete the weather proofing process.  This triple sealing effect helps to greatly reduce any chance of moisture or outside air working  its way into the interior of the home.
