The project was no small feat, encompassing siding, trim repair and window replacement, roof repair, barn restoration, and porch reconstruction. In addition, the homeowners decided to undertake a complete remodel of the master bedroom. Through each task, the team at Perry Brothers proved their expertise and offered helpful suggestions for improving the project. They made recommendations for things like using a different quality of wood or molding selection and offered options for doors and porch screening.

Why These Recommendations Are So Important

It is essential for a contractor to make recommendations for things like the quality of wood or molding selection because these materials can significantly impact the overall look and durability of the finished remodeling project. 

an essential key ingredient to renovating and remodeling historic homes is the communication of the contractor and the quality of his materials and vendors

Using higher quality materials may cost more upfront, but they can often save homeowners money in the long run by lasting longer and requiring less maintenance. Additionally, using suitable materials can enhance the finished project’s overall aesthetic and increase the home’s value.

Offering doors and porch screening options is also essential because it allows homeowners to choose features that meet their specific needs and preferences. For example, if the homeowners are particularly concerned about energy efficiency, the contractor may recommend doors with high insulation values. Or, if the homeowners wants a particular style of door or porch screening, the contractor can present them with a range of options to choose from.

Effective communication and scheduling are crucial to the success of any home restoration or remodeling project. Good communication ensures that all parties involved – the homeowners, the contractor, and any subcontractors – are on the same page and working towards the same goals. It helps prevent misunderstandings that can lead to delays or errors.

Meticulous Attention to Cleanliness and Organization

Perry Brothers Construction went above and beyond to keep the property clean and organized during the entire process.

If you’re planning a home renovation project, you know there are a million things to consider. You want to find a reliable, skilled, and professional contractor, but perhaps most importantly, you want someone who will treat your home and family respectfully. That’s where cleanliness and organization come in.

When it comes to home renovations, having a clean and organized worksite is a significant bonus. It might seem like a small thing, but trust us; it makes a huge difference. Here’s why:

Our policy is too keep your home clean and organized during any renovation or remodeling job

A clean and organized worksite is a matter of respect. It shows that the contractor values your space and is committed to minimizing any disruptions or inconveniences caused by the project. Imagine coming home from work to a construction site that’s cluttered and dirty. It would be pretty frustrating, right? On the other hand, coming home to a clean and organized worksite can make the renovation process much less stressful.

But cleanliness and organization are about more than just being considerate. They’re also practical. A clean and organized worksite is safer for everyone involved. It reduces the risk of accidents or injuries caused by tripping or falling and makes it easier for contractors to work efficiently. And let’s face it; a renovation project is stressful enough without worrying about safety hazards on top of everything else.

Maintaining cleanliness and organization can also help to preserve the value of your home. By protecting your home and its surroundings from damage or dirt, the contractor helps ensure that your home looks its best when the project is complete. And who doesn’t want their home to look its best?

The Importance of Taking Extra Care and Precautions for an Older Home Like This One

When it comes to renovating an older home, it’s important to take extra care and precautions to ensure that the work is done properly and that the integrity of the home is maintained. Here are a few reasons why:

Materials: Older homes often have unique or hard-to-find materials that must be matched or replicated. For example, if you’re repairing an old roof, you may need to find roofing tiles or shingles that are similar in style and color to the original ones. Working with a contractor with experience matching and sourcing these types of materials is essential.

Structural issues: Older homes often have hidden structural issues that need to be addressed during a renovation. For example, you may need to reinforce beams or add additional support to the foundation. It’s important to work with a contractor with experience identifying and fixing these issues.

Structural issues are the number one problem plaguing historic homes across Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire

Code compliance: Building codes and standards have changed over the years, and it’s vital to ensure that any renovations to an older home meet the current codes. A contractor who is experienced with older homes will be able to help you navigate these requirements and ensure that your home is safe and up to code.

Historical preservation: If your home is part of a historic district or has some other type of historical designation, you may need to take extra care to ensure that any renovations are done in a way that preserves the home’s historical integrity. A contractor who is familiar with these types of requirements will be able to help you navigate the process and make sure that your home is preserved for future generations.

Overall, the homeowners were delighted with the work of Perry Brothers Construction and would not hesitate to recommend them to others. In fact, they have already recommended the company to several of their friends and neighbors, who have also been impressed with the team’s quality of work and professionalism.
