Andover and North Andover Renovation Services

Both Andover and North Andover, neighboring communities, have homes dating from the early 1700s and homes that reflect their growth into bedroom communities of the greater Boston area. Recently WORKS helped to renovate one of the newer homes in North Andover, built in 1995.

This beautiful home had developed rot around the front entry. After we removed some of the trim, we discovered more damage than expecting, involving the removal of a window. We dug out the rot, filled holes, sanded, epoxied, and prepared the exterior for painting.

When the window and door were repaired, we also prepared the interior for painting, then stained and sealed the door and lights to make all the repairs invisible.

WORKS has completed renovation and restoration projects throughout the North Shore of Boston, including Amesbury, Andover, Beverly, Boxford, Danvers, Essex, Georgetown, Gloucester, Groveland, Hamilton, Ipswich, Lynn, Lynnfield, Marblehead, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Middleton, Nahant, Newbury, Newburyport, Peabody, Rockport, Rowley, Salem, Swampscott, Topsfield, Wenham, Middleton, and West Newbury. WORKS by JesseDeBenedictis is fully licensed by the state of Massachusetts (# CS 91245 and HIC # 132798).

The land that became Andover and North Andover was purchased from the Penacock Chief Cutshmache in 1646 at the cost of “six pounds of currency and a coat.” The old burial ground in North Andover is the old center of the combined town. The towns separated in 1855 when the citizens from the southwest part grew tired of walking all the way north for church.
