Turman Home Remodeling Details

Like many of our home exterior facelift projects, the Turman renovation began with a picture. The homeowner designed the exact front porch he wanted for his home and rough sketched it out on paper. With several ideas and wishes for his home’s exterior, Mr. Turman put the challenge to EXOVATIONS to transform his home into the one he so clearly envisioned in his mind. Once the portico fell into shape, Mr. Turman could see that his home’s amazing transformation was exactly what he hoped for.

The Turman's renovation included the following projects:

  • FRONT PORCH / PORTICO: Installed a metal hip style front portico cover 6' x 2' with 2 cedar gable brackets supporting it. The portico has exposed pressure treated framing.

  • GABLE BRACKETS: Installed 2 cedar gable brackets ..1 in front gable and 1 on right side gable.

  • TRELLIS: Installed a cedar trellis built over the garage door, using the same bracket style that was installed on the portico.

  • SIDING: Removed all stucco from the front of the house. Installed new frieze board in front. Installed lap siding and board and batten style. Installed a 1 x 10 band across the entire front and right side (including chimney) to seperate the floors. Installed a 1 x 6 smaller band to seperate the top of the foyer wall to the foyer gabled section.

  • TRIM ROT: Replaced 1 leg of the garage door frame with a 2 x 8 pressure treated. Replaced brickmold on the right side twin, and all windows on the back deck. Replaced the nosing on all windows on the back deck.

  • WINDOW TRIM IN FRONT: Removed brickmold and installed 1 x 6 trim around all front windows and entry door. Used a PVC 1 x 6 on the 1 front radius window.

  • SOFFIT: Installed all new solid soffit in the front gabled area and perforated soffit on all front hip areas.

  • STONE: Installed real stacked stone 5' high, on either side of the entry door unit, and the adjacent return walls.

  • PAINT: Pressure washed, primed, and painted all surfaces. Painted the metal chimney shroud.
