Pennington Home Addition

A&E Pennington Home Addition
A few weeks ago, A&E Construction began work on a major home renovation in Pennington.

Set to be completed in October, this project will consist of building a new playroom atop an existing garage footprint, enclosing the existing front porch into a main hallway, remodeling the kitchen, and re-roofing & re-siding the entire exterior of the house.

Already, A&E has paved the way for a timely and efficient job by removing the original garage and using the existing concrete block foundation and slab to construct new walls and roofing for the modified garage addition.

In upcoming weeks, A&E plans to construct a new stair enclosure servicing the playroom as well as new cover porch stairs and a bluestone landing at the main entry of the house.

We will be creating a foyer to service the new entry to the house as well as provide access to the garage, new playroom, and mudroom areas.

With all of the initial framework completed, A&E's team is ready to install the new HardieWrap over the entire surface of this Pennington home addition

The HardieWrap weather barrier is an innovative new product that provides a 2nd defense against water damage, mildew, and energy loss.

It is specially designed to create a balance of water resistance and breathability by letting in moisture from inside your home to escape so the area within your walls stays dry.

Now that this is complete, A&E's Hardie siding will be installed in the upcoming weeks. 

What's great about HardiePlank siding is that homeowners can choose from a wide variety of looks & textures to fit the style of their home. The fibrous quality of HardiePlank creates a very natural, wood-like appearance to the exterior of a re-sided home.

In addition to siding, A&E's home renovation will include re-roofing the entire house by removing existing roofing and roofing felt. 

In upcoming blog posts, be sure to check out photos of the new roofing installation so you can see how roofing color can greatly enhance the exterior paint on your home.

  1. Sinks have large basins and are usually deep and rectangular. They can be under mounted, wall mounted or recessed in a sink stand. They can be made from cast iron like as claw foot tub.

  2. Instead of purchasing or building a new home, when seeking more living space, many people choose to add-on to their existing homes. Whether you have an expanding family, or just feel like you’ve outgrown your current home, but don’t want to part with it, a home addition may be the solution.
