Window Removal and New Siding for Clackamas County Home

Bragg Construction was called out to a Milwaukie, Oregon home for window removal. The client was looking for more wall space for cabinets during their kitchen remodel which meant closing off and removing a window. After the window was removed, new wall studs were installed, insulation put in the wall, interior drywall was installed, exterior vapor barrier was inserted followed by new siding, new caulking, new painting and worksite cleanup — let us show you how it was done.

Window removal:

One piece of siding was carefully removed to determine if an exact match was available.  Once the match was found the material was ordered and put on stand by so that the install could be done with out hesitation.  The window was removed and set aside for donation.

New wall studs with insulation:

New wall studs, (2 x 4’s), were installed into the window opening, plywood sheathing was cut, fit and nailed to the exterior and insulation was fitted to the interior.

Interior drywall:

drywall was installed to the interior, taped, mud and plaster, ready for the cabinet install.

Exterior vapor barrier:

Modern “Improved Vapor Barrier” was installed over the plywood sheathing to prevent moisture intrusion.

New siding, new caulking, new painting:

The new siding was a nearly perfect match and not noticeable at just 3 feet back from the surface.  Precision caulking and 2 coats of paint finish the project to the complete satisfaction of the client.

This home in Gladstone, Oregon needed a lot of work.  Fortunately it was mostly cosmetic.  There was moss on the roof,  worn out gutters, dry rot in the fascia boards, and the exterior paint was very tired.  Bragg Construction and Remodeling was able to complete all the work with His team of skilled Craftsmen.  We cleaned the moss off the roof.  We removed and recycled the old gutters.  Our Professional Carpenters fixed all the Dry Rot on the house siding and fascia boards.

The Painter thoroughly prepared the house for painting.  Scraping off the loose paint, caulking and filling nail holes.  Priming all the bare wood came next and then 2 coats of full acrylic latex paint.  The trim color was applied, including a third contrasting color for the front door.  The gutter man installed new gutters. The job site was cleaned up.
