Private Residence Restoration

Project Info

Kinsley restored this 230-year-old home that had a failing roof system, insect damage, deteriorated siding and trim, shifting foundations, interior damage and water infiltration.

Notable aspects of the work included:

  • The demolition and replacement of the roof system, including copper flashings, gutters and downspouts
  • The addition of swales and underground piping to divert surface and rain water from the house
  • The construction of a new concrete and masonry porch, with brick inlay
  • Scraping several layers of paint from the home and guesthouse exterior, then priming and painting

Due to the complex plaster finish on the interior, Kinsley wired the home from the exterior. In doing so, we were able to replace the interior electric baseboard heating throughout the home and add additional units.

While the exterior siding was removed, the owner decided to address the thermal deficiencies of the home. Kinsley installed blown-in insulation in all of the wall cavities to help retain heat.
