Big or small, remodeling or restoration, we can get it done for you
Exterior– windows and siding
This house had original stucco board that was crumbling. We took it all off and replaced it with Hardy Board, a cement product. Underneath the Hardy Board, we put extra insulation. We then had to replace all the horizontal and vertical boards. We also replaced all the windows with new Pella windows. The windows, siding and insulation all add to the energy efficiency of this home now. Cardea Construction is an approved installer of Pella Window.

This beautiful Historic Ypsilanti home proudly shows our exterior renovations that include historically correct repairs and restoration right through the paint stage.
Whole House Remodel
2005 Award Winner
Following Energy Star, American Lung and Green Building guidelines, this 1940’s Cape Cod has turned into one of Ann Arbor’s most energy efficient, clean air and sustainable homes! Once a 2 bedroom, 1 bath house; it is now a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with a lower level recreation room. The plaster walls and wood floors on the first floor were maintained, while the kitchen & baths were given marble and granite counters, new wood cabinets, windows and lighting that bring this home into today.
