Shorewood Window Installation

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

As summer is drawing to a close, we are working on a variety of home exterior projects.  One of our most recent endeavors included the window replacement of a Shorewood home. The updated Lake Minnetonka rambler had three twenty-year old windows that were in dire need of replacement.  Not only were the windows leaking, there was also a small portion of water getting inside the home.

To resolve this issue Sass Construction installed three new windows and siding over the course of two days.  We began by removing the three windows and all of the siding from the home’s lake facing wall.  We proceeded to install the three new windows, housewrap and flashing to ensure the problem would not repeat itself.  Lastly, along with some finishing work inside, we stained the new siding to match the existing house color. Stay tuned for additional photos of the completed project!

New Screened Porches

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

We recently wrapped up construction on two great screen porch projects! For our first porch, the family wanted a low maintenance, fully screened in unit that they could entertain in while enjoying their beautiful backyard. To accomplish this, we began by installing a durable and easy-to-clean tile floor that would hold up well to the elements. Next, we added vaulted wood ceilings to improve the porch’s aesthetic and give it the ambiance of a finished room. A fireplace was also installed to lend the porch character and provide a functional heat source on cool summer nights. The end result was a beautiful space, able to accommodate nearly twenty guests for conversation and entertaining!

Our next porch project involved renovating an existing space. The family’s outdated porch featured an overly damp interior and immobile windows. To upgrade the area we installed price efficient, rolling windows and added a new storm door. Next, we installed a new decking surround and a glass railing, designed to keep the lake view unobstructed as possible. Finally, a fresh coat of paint for both the interior and exterior resulted in a practical space perfect for outdoor use nearly year around!
