All employees of WORKS are carpenters and take pride in their creations. We love carpentry and love seeing the finished product! Every piece is crafted and assembled with care and superior finishes to ensure a long life.
A little known fact is that WORKS actually started out as a floor installation specialist. We continue to update our knowledge of all the newest flooring products and installation guidelines so that we can assist our clients in determining the best flooring for their space.
Window and door installation
Here in New England, tight fitting doors and windows are an absolute must for energy conservation. WORKS contracts and has relationships with only the best manufacturers. We make sure that the windows and doors you purchase come with excellent guarantees and then we flash, insulate and trim them with products that will last as long as the window or door.
Nobody wants a deck that requires a lot of maintenance. Decks and patios are for enjoyment and leisure. WORKS constructs decks with the newest, most reliable, long-lasting and maintenance-free materials; we will be happy to assist you in choosing the right material for your deck. We both renovate existing decks and design and build customized decks.
It is especially important that masonry work in New England be done right. With the swings in weather that we experience, poor masonry work can create big problems. WORKS uses concrete that is appropriate for our climate, and we make sure that all work is reinforced to hold up to the test of time.
Interior and exterior painting
At WORKS we have our own in-house painters so we can ensure a thorough, quality job. With interior paint jobs, we focus on the wall and trim preparation as well as sanding between coats for a smooth, professional finish. When working on exterior paint jobs, we take whatever steps are appropriate to route water away from the house so that the paint is long lasting.
Rot repair and Restoration
WORKS has many clients who depend on us for a yearly “rot-check” on their houses to preserve the structure and catch rot issues before they escalate. Many times rot will show only on the exterior of a home (a rotted piece of siding, trim, gutter or even a small leak) and may not look serious. The real concern is what happens beneath the paint and behind the wall. Once we have exposed the area and discovered the full extent of the damage, we make repairs in a manner that treats the cause of the rot and protects the area, so that rotting doesn’t happen again.
Framing is the base support of your house, and therefore it is extremely important that it is done correctly. WORKS takes the time to ensure that the frame is leveled properly and fastened appropriately throughout.
