Sorority Exterior Makeover

A necessary remodel

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 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 improved makeover. James Hardie Smooth Lap siding provides crisp lines that make the building look clean and timeless. The vapor barrier protects the siding against weather damage, increasing durability.

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 fire escapes are safe and code approved. After the test, all areas of concern were fixed, such as reinforcing sagging areas by adding posts. Check out the link to our 'Fire Escapes' page to see more information on the work we do to keep our clients safe.
