Innovation Construction has learned what works in these environments to halt water infiltration around all openings. We use a combination of products which include ice and water barrier; house wrap; custom-bent, aliminum-sloped fill pans; sealant applied behind the new construction nailing fin; and a self-adhering membrane window flashing over the nail fin.
Now THIS window is sealed against water infiltration!
Having purchased the property from the family estate, our homeowners set out to update the exterior in a traditional yet durable and carefree manner. It is their hope to hand down this hidden gem to their children.
We removed all the sidings and rotted wood trim. Our homeowners selected the Eastern white cedar Maibec solid-color, two-coat, prestained shingle featuring the strongest warranties available: 50 years against wood decay, 15 years on the solid color retention, and 5 years on labor.
We replaced the exterior wood trim with Azek PVC trim boards. This cellular PVC trim is the best and most high-performance trim product on the market. Azek adhesives and concealed fasteners finished out the installation.
The window selected was the Harvey brand Majesty series double-hung wood window featuring genuine wood interiors and a maintenance-free, aluminum-clad exterior. All Majesty windows are custom-made to the sizes required. With experienced, accurate measurements, the new construction-style windows marry up seamlessly to the existing wood interior trim. These new windows feature tilt-in sash, Energy Star-rated glass, and Harvey’s proprietary, virtually invisible screens for unobstructed views.
In this home, we replaced 20-year-old windows with new Energy Star-rated and insulated window sash kits. (This is an ideal solution to drafty old windows.) This video visually illustrates the steps that were taken to accomplish this process.
Take a look at the final moments in the video. It is virtually impossible to detect any changes in appearance in both the interior and exterior!

As with your overall kitchen remodel, think about how you use your kitchen. How well do your current appliances meet your needs? Do you love to bake? Are you typically a solo cook or does the whole family get involved? How much refrigerator space do you need? Do you usually use fresh ingredients or do you use mostly frozen food? You need a kitchen that fits your lifestyle. Functionality, size and style are all important considerations when you plan a kitchen remodel. They affect the usability, look and space of your new kitchen, as well as traffic patterns.Continue reading…
We have mentioned the importance of plenty of light to help keep a small kitchen from feeling cramped, but every kitchen needs ample lighting, regardless of its size. The more natural light you can get, the better. Something to consider to increase natural light is adding a window or enlarging existing windows. If you live in a single-story home, have you thought about installing skylights? VELUX SUN TUNNEL™ skylights? How about glass doors?Continue reading…
