Services for Single-Family Homes
When your home needs repair or remodeling, Western Architectural can perform simple site walk-throughs and/or invasive investigations to identify the cause and treatment of your leaks, deterioration or damage due to weather.
Today’s residential construction industry has introduced many innovations in materials and construction methods. However, some of these materials, when improperly installed, can allow the weather to damage your home.
When Western Architectural works with a single-family home, we take a comprehensive view of your structure’s intended use and lifespan, materials used, architectural and construction plans, and material composition. Our LEED-AP consultants take into consideration the best ways to save energy and reduce material use. We combine this information with scientific analysis and the latest weatherization industry knowledge to design and recommend a solution that will meet the specific needs for your home.Repair and Restoration
We recommend fully analyzing the exterior envelope system (siding, roofing, etc.) as your starting point. Western Architectural will review your home’s plans, contractor project logs, and perform in-depth forensic assessments to ensure you get an objective and thorough perspective on the condition of your home’s exterior envelope.
When contractors or repairs are involved, Western Architectural can perform daily or weekly assessments, documenting work with photos and reports on your behalf to ensure that the materials are installed per design, building code and manufacturer requirements. We can also provide certified warranty assessments for your Sto or Dryvit-brand EIFS and Stucco.Planning to Keep the Weather Out
