Over the years, renovationPLUS has worked on many newer, custom homes and have
uncovered re-curring problems. The projects on this page are primarily water problems. MOST of
these are due to poor original construction practices that should not occur in a home regardless
of the price range. Some could have been caught earlier with regular inspections and
renovationPLUS will inspect your home and provide your family with a course of action to
repair and eliminate the problems. A complete exterior inspection, trim and siding repairs, prep
and repaint with Sherwin Williams Superpaint - from as little as $1,200.00* (*varies per site
condition, home size etc.)
renovationPLUS invites you to review the following pictures and see if your home is showing
some of these similar features. Most of these homes are
only three to five years old !! We are a
Pella Select Contractor for all your window and door needs.
