This past year, Kerr Construction and Design started a major home renovation in Delta, just north of Point Roberts on Boundary Bay.
The renovation entails raising the roof by two feet to create 10′ interior ceilings throughout the house as well as an almost total gut of the interior. This allows for the creation of three completely renovated bathrooms plus a new, larger kitchen. When complete, there will be a new 700 sq ft. roof deck to allow the homeowners to really appreciate the magnificence of their location on Boundary Bay.
In order to facilitate the renovations during the winter months, Kerr put up scaffolding and wrapped the home with plastic sheeting to allow work to continue unhindered by the elements. This was vital to keep interior finishes like flooring intact from rain damage while removing the roof.
The scaffolding went up on January 1 and it took a week to complete the assembly and wrap. This exterior structure was in place for two months.
Besides keeping crews out of the rain, it allowed work to be easily done on exterior walls for siding as well as heating and plumbing penetrations. It also kept the new flat roof dry so that the torch-on roofing membrane could be installed properly.
Such care shows that Kerr Construction & Design will go to great lengths to ensure a project gets done right and on time.
The project will be completed this year in late September.
