This was a large scale water damage restoration project that involved gutting the house back to the studs. Several water pipes froze and burst while the homeowner was out of state visiting family. It was estimated the water flooded the home for almost two weeks before they returned home. The only portion of the home that did not sustain damage was the second floor. The old knob and tube wiring, cast iron and lead plumbing, HVAC system and insulation were all replaced and upgraded to meet Code requirements. The coal burning fireplace was converted to natural gas. Cherry hardwood flooring was install throughout the entire main level of the home. In the kitchen cherry cabinetry and new countertops were installed along with stainless steel appliances. Natural wood trim, doors and Energy-Star rated windows and entry doors where installed.The bathroom received mosaic floor tiles and subway style wall tiles. Tub and toilet are from the Kohler classic collection and the tub/shower faucet and vanity faucet are from Moen. Custom vanity with quartz countertop with a porcelain under-mount sink. All the paint colors through out the entire house are historically correct. The lower level of the house was also reconstructed. The walk-out finished basement had all the cracks in the foundation repaired and a drain tile system with a sump pit and pump were installed prior to finishing. We also added a full bathroom to the lower level. The stairs were replaced and a wood newel post and railing were installed with wrought iron balusters.
GETTING THINGS FIRED UP
This kitchen burned from a grease fire and the rest of the house had extensive smoke damage. The fire restoration started with removing the fire damaged materials in the kitchen area and cleaning smoke damage from the rests of the structure. We also repaired existing termite damage the kitchen and living room walls that backed to the garage. We replaced the Zinsco electric service panel and brought the wiring, plumbing and insulation up to Code. We installed new cherry cabinets, granite countertops, glass tile backsplash, tile flooring and stainless steel appliances.

BRINGING BACK THE PAST
Darnell-Group was contacted to restore an extensively water damaged home that was built in the mid 40’s. This bathroom was one of the many rooms in the house that sustained water damage. We removed all of the damaged building materials back to the studs and then reconstructed the bathroom from scratch. We took into consideration some of the important design details from this era of a home. Mosaic tile for the floor and subway style tiles for the walls. A new cast iron tub and toilet from the Kohler classic bath collection. Oil rubbed bronze Moen tub/shower and vanity faucets. Custom made vanity with quartz countertop, coordinating mirror and light fixtures finish off the details of the bathroom remodel.
