New Jersey Home Remodeling

The U.S. state of New Jersey lies on the Eastern seaboard, with New York to its north and northeast, and Delaware and Pennsylvania to its west. New Jersey became heavily industrialized soon after the Revolutionary War, with the building of canals and railroads. It retained its position as a heavily industrialized state well after World War II. However, it is now better known as a commuters’ state, because many people who live in New Jersey commute to work in New York City, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. People prefer to buy homes in the suburbs of New Jersey’s cities and travel to work in other states.

At Total Remodeling, we have done several home remodeling projects in New Jersey. Since New Jersey was one of the original 13 colonies, its craftsmen, architects, and designers absorbed several styles that were popular in the colonial period and also copied Victorian examples. Many homes in New Jersey have been built in the Neoclassical and Victorian styles. Most homes in New Jersey are built of wood, and since New Jersey is bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, the wood does tend to show signs of wear and tear within a few years.

Total Remodeling has done several projects in New Jersey using vinyl siding and roofing products, as well as doors and windows. We have used modern home remodeling products to give a new look to homes designed in the Victorian style. For example, we used vinyl siding products to finish a Second Empire French Victorian house in Maplewood, New Jersey, and received an award for our efforts. The vinyl siding products we use–System 2000 and Elite–replicate the look of cedar clapboard but require less maintenance. Our skilled craftsmen were also able to add and emphasize authentic period details that enhanced the look of the house.

Many homeowners in New Jersey have consulted us on home remodeling projects when they planned to sell their homes. One of our home remodeling projects in New Jersey was for a couple whose children had just joined college–this project took us four years to complete. At the end of this project, the couple hoped to sell their home of 15 years for at least $300,000, which was the closing price in their locality. They closed the sale of their home at $410,000.

Whether or not you plan to sell your home or live in it for the rest of your days, you can always consult us at Total Remodeling for your home remodeling needs.
