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!
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.
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. Check out the link to our 'Fire Escapes' page to see more information on the work we do to keep our clients safe.

“G. Christianson recently completed a major kitchen and bath remodel for us. We really enjoyed working with this excellent firm from the day we walked in the door until the final sign off. Anna, Jon and Elizabeth created a design that incorporated our ideas with theirs that is wonderful. It opened up our 1980's kitchen and made it much more functional and beautiful. The cabinets that Ron, Eric and Bill built and installed are perfect for our space and the quality, fit and finish are absolutely top drawer. The construction team, Tony, Maria, Gavin, Eric, Dennis, Bill, and Cesar were outstanding. Always, courteous, professional and clean. There was never a mess left at the end of the day. Their attention to detail and quality of work from the framing to the finish work was fantastic. Similarly, the sub-contractors were excellent. Jon, did an amazing job juggling the order of work to address illnesses and other unexpected interruptions to keep the schedule on track. This was a 5 month project and it finished within a couple of weeks of the original completion date. I've done some project management myself, and know how difficult this can be. We are delighted with the results and love showing off our beautiful new kitchen and bath. G. Christianson Construction is as advertised, a high quality, professional team that delivers what the promise. We highly recommend them. ”
