Freshen Up For Fall

“Fall

Fall weather can be a perfect time to have a professional evaluate your home needs for caulking and paint. Depending on how your previous paint job was done you may be surprised to learn your home is in need of preventive maintenance now. If caulking is dryed up and cracking it will not be protecting your home. Also when paint begins to peel it is time to get a "tune up" before any real damage is done.

Give us a call or email to set up an appointment with our in-house painting contractor Mark. He will be more than happy to help you choose the right colors and products when he gives you a personal estimate.

Upgrading sheds are a hot new item. Home owners are upgrading their garden sheds or out buildings to be either a gorgeous garden shed or add extra living space for their home. Our professional team can help you decide if you will be allowed to put in a full bath, kitchenette or just a bedroom/playroom. If you are doing plumbing and electrical you'll want to make sure it is safe and done with permits. We handle all the permitting process for you.

An updated garden shed can be an asset rather than an eyesore in your yard. It can follow the architectural  style of your present home or go off on a fairyland tale of its own with a country cabin, Grecian palace, etc. Here are a few ideas: Upscale Sheds

2nd Anniversary for Earthquake

Are You Ready For The Next One?

“Image

August 24th this month marks the anniversary of the devastating 2014 Earthquake that tried to put Napa out of business! Our charming historical sites were damaged as well as more modern structures to the tune of more than $360 million dollars. This report came out detailing some of the reasons why so much damage was done. A Year After South Napa Earthquake.

Many of our Napa Valley neighbors have had their homes inspected and repaired. We are still getting calls for such work. Foundations, chimneys and other structure damage is critical to get done now before the next quake.

My crew is also busy going out to homes who did not suffer damages the last go around but want to make sure their foundation and other structures are secure. Getting your house bolted down and braced is one of the best ways to prevent the damage we saw just a few months back. Call us today so we can schedule a qualified worker out to see what needs to be done to repair or better yet prevent.

Sun Kissed

However, when you have had enough and need some shade from the blazing sun, we can help. Alpine Construction can build you a custom cover for your deck. Cooling off and entertaining on a shaded deck will extend your enjoyment of the great summer season that is just beginning. Call us today to get an estimate for your project.

Get A Spring Check Up for Your Home

“Image

Don't let the winter and spring weather catch you unaware in regards to the security of your basement and foundation. Undetected earthquake damage or just wear and tear can lead to a disaster. Our workers can inspect and repair any problems now before they cause a big problem.

A basement can be prone to flooding, take action now to prevent it this season. Foundations that are not properly constrcted or are failing can lead to the loss of the entire home. To keep water erosion to a minimum clear gutters of debris and position downspouts so they (ideally) lead at least three feet away from the house. Fill foundation cracks with epoxy to minimize the chance of leaks, and invest in window well covers to keep rain out of below-grade windows.

Alpine's construction crew can take the worry off of your mind by getting the job done in no time - call us today.

Napa homeowners can apply for incentive payments of up to $3,000 to help them strengthen their homes against the next earthquake. Registration is open through March 22, so give us a call or get the details by clicking on the Napa City logo to the left. You will notice that this website indicates that the Napa EBB encourages home owners to use licensed contractors experienced in seismic retrofitting.

They say in part "The new Napa Earthquake Brace + Bolt Program (Napa EBB) helps pay for seismic retrofits to houses that are most vulnerable to catastrophic damage: pre-1979 houses that aren’t bolted to their foundations, include a crawl space and have unbraced “cripple walls” (low walls between the foundation and first floor). In a strong earthquake, the crawl space is vulnerable to collapse, causing the home to slide off its foundation."

Alpine Construction is experienced in this retrofit and can help you get your home ready for the next big one. The website will also help you determine if you qualify for this financial help. Call us today to talk over your options.

Make a Statement

A Front Door and Porch

How can the front of your home "Make a Statement"? It has been said not to judge a book by it's cover - but people do. Your front door is the first thing a persons sees when approaching your home. Take a fresh look at how your home appears to a visitor. Is it clean and tidy? Is the front door outdated and paint faded? How about the lighting? Is it attractive while safely lighting the path to your door?

An expanded remodel might include the garage door and siding. You would be surprised how much these items can add to the look,  comfort and security of your home.

Our knowegable staff can give you an estimate for whatever level of update to the front of your home you desire - to painting your current door and updating the hardware or to installing a new one and more. Give us a call to make that appointment today.

Now that the holidays are over and everyone has gone home it is time to take stock of what you need to do to get ready for spring. Winter is a great time to get that fresh coat of paint inside. And - no, the newer paints do not have the odors that we associated with fresh paint in years past!

You can do one room, an area or the entire house. If you choose the kitchen or bath, consider a new backsplash to really add sparkle to your home.

Having a professional paint your interior is such a treat. Choose your colors and let us do the work! Just for fun try this link to Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer to see what color can do.

Give us a call or email to set up an appointment with our in-house painting contractor Mark. He will help you choose the right colors and products as well as give you a personal estimate.
