The owners of this venerable Latham, NY, funeral home turned to Teakwood Builders to update and enhance the style their business’s facade. The goal was to create a more welcoming, attractive and safer entry to what was once a grand home, with a focus on aesthetic appeal and providing visitors with shelter from the elements.
Highly durable, low-maintenance building materials – such as locally sourced granite and brick masonry elements, plus molding and columns made of cellular PVC – ensure that this high-traffic business stands up to daily wear-and-tear. Since the remodel, the business owners report an increase in business, in public visibility and in appreciation by the community. This exterior remodel garnered Teakwood Builders a 2011 Silver Award in the Light Commercial category of the Qualified Remodeler Master Design Awards.
