"Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set."
– Proverbs 22:28
Our professionals enjoy learning something new from the challenges each project presents. Our forefathers were quite creative with their building techniques; something we strive to learn and “build” upon. We firmly believe that “It’s not good because it’s old; it’s old because it’s good.” That’s one of the reasons why we prefer to repair rather than replace worn architectural features – whether that means re-glazing window sashes or enhancing the energy efficiency of those floor-to-ceiling windows.
Because we specialize in historic restoration, we preserve distinctive original features as well as respect changes that have been made throughout the years. We do this while also ensuring that our contemporary alterations are compatible with the home’s historic and stylistic features. We do not hammer in a nail until we have analyzed the longevity, cost and impact on the historic character of your home.
Whether you are interested in restoring a 100-year-old farm house or would prefer to build a contemporary Colonial, Andrus Construction ensures that homeowners get the best return on their investment from their construction dollars.
We have worked with local and state historic authorities for many years to ensure our projects honor the project’s heritage while meeting the needs and standards of modern living. We also make sure that you recognize the value of the building’s “character-defining features,” so that the home’s distinctive stylistic features and skilled craftsmanship are preserved, maintained and highlighted.
If hazardous materials are present at your current site, we can manage its removal. Lead paint is a potential hazard that Andrus Corporation is certified to work with. We are certified by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health as a Lead Renovation Firm as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, our professionals are certified North Carolina Renovators.
