Sorority Exterior Makeover

Sigma Kappa's Exterior Transformation

Updates to an exterior can revamp your building to look like it was newly constructed. Replacements to the siding, casements, trim, paint, stonework, and chimney, for example, gave this building a new and improved look, along with decades of durability! We always encourage exterior materials that will last for decades with little maintenance. We also load tested the fire escape and fixed the necessary issues to ensure the safety of all Sigma Kappa's members. Check out the 'before' photo at the end of the slideshow!

Project Details

New Siding

The new and refreshing siding has a huge impact on this makeover. James Hardie Smooth Lap siding provides crisp lines that make the building look clean and timeless. The new insulation reduces energy losses through the walls. The new vapor barrier protects the house against weather damage, increasing durability and longevity.

Stone Veneer

This gorgeous stone veneer is a perfect choice for a transitional design style that adds visual interest to Sigma Kappa's architecture. The stone veneer will not fade with rain or heat, so it will stay beautiful for years to come.

Load Testing Fire Escapes

In a sorority, it is important that all members are safe in case of an emergency. G. Christianson performed load testing to ensure the decades old fire escapes are safe from collapse. After the test, all areas of concern were fixed, such as reinforcing sagging beams by adding posts.
