New Jersey Home Remodeling
The U.S. state of New Jersey lies on Eastern seaboard, with New York to its north and northeast, and Delaware and Pennsylvania to its west. New Jersey became heavily industrialized soon after Revolutionary War, with building of canals and railroads. It retained its position as a heavily industrialized state well after World War II. However, it is now better known as a commuters’ state, because many people who live in New Jersey commute to work in New York City, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. People prefer to buy homes in suburbs of New Jersey’s cities and travel to work in other states.
At Total Remodeling, we have done several home remodeling projects in New Jersey. Since New Jersey was one of original 13 colonies, its craftsmen, architects, and designers absorbed several styles that were popular in colonial period and also copied Victorian examples. Many homes in New Jersey have been built in Neoclassical and Victorian styles. Most homes in New Jersey are built of wood, and since New Jersey is bordered on east by Atlantic Ocean, wood does tend to show signs of wear and tear within a few years.
Total Remodeling has done several projects in New Jersey using vinyl siding and roofing products, as well as doors and windows. We have used modern home remodeling products to give a new look to homes designed in Victorian style. For example, we used vinyl siding products to finish a Second Empire French Victorian house in Maplewood, New Jersey, and received an award for our efforts. The vinyl siding products we use—System 2000 and Elite—replicate look of cedar clapboard but require less maintenance. Our skilled craftsmen were also able to add and emphasize authentic period details that enhanced look of house.
