This historical home had foundation issues which required the diligent expertise of Blackstone. Furthermore, the house had water intrusion issues in several locations which required identification and elimination. In addition to the removal of the structural issues, the client required certain renovations to bring the home up to Los Gatos standards.
Blackstone worked directly with the Architect/Engineer and the client to formulate a plan which would resolve the current issues. The first step was to shore the house so the foundation work could be completed and resolved. The second step was to complete the interior renovations of the basement. The basement had suffered water intrusion issues as a result of the foundation problems. The issues were identified, resolved and the interior of the basement was completely renovated to bring it up to the client’s standards.
The next step was to renovate the front porch of the property as the result of the foundation issues. The porch was redone, maintaining the essence of the historical feel of the home. Upon completion, the exterior siding and windows were removed and replaced. Finally, Blackstone helped to resolve electrical and plumbing issues surrounding the project thus providing a complete renovation to the project.
