The Grand by Braddock Built Renovations
About this Renovation
This grand home on Ocean Isle Beach was covered in stucco for its siding and exterior trim. The conditions behind the stucco had deteriorated over the years due to hairline cracks and insufficient flashings. We used a similar Mediterranean color scheme when re-building the exterior of this home and updated the exterior elevations by eliminating most of the overdone arch details. Wrapped in a specialized self-healing housewrap, the repaired structure is water tight. Flashings are new and structural flaws are corrected. The house is covered in a combination of LPSmartSide lap siding and Azek shake siding (note the curved wall of the turret) with Azek trim. The front entry was re-built including columns, porch floor tile, and decking and railings on the steps. The structures of the rear decks were re-framed to prevent a major hazard, to eliminate two tall central columns, and to modify the arched deck bands. New railings dress the rear decks to maximize the view of the waterway.
