Winning Residential Architecture: The Andrews Residence

By

Randy Burton of Burton Builders won a Red Diamond Achiever (RDA) award for his team’s work on The Andrews Residence project in 2013. We’re revisiting this remodeling project in preparation for hurricane season as we focus on a consideration for many homeowners: Integrity IMPACT window and door products.

Built in 1928, this brick Tudor style cottage is just three blocks from the Atlantic Ocean in Rehoboth Beach, DE. The homeowner wanted to update the home while staying true to its 85-year-old charm. In order to match the architectural style and meet the performance requirements of a coastal environment, Integrity windows and doors were chosen for the project. The Integrity products allowed for new casement windows with a divided lite design that replicated the 85 year-old wood windows. Now, the home also features a two-story glass wall overlooking the outdoor living space, providing a seamless transition between home and nature.

Because of its coastal location, The Andrews Residence needed the added strength of Integrity’s IMPACT products. IMPACT Wood-Ultrex casements, awning and double hung windows helped The Andrews Residence become charmingly modern while staying safe in the face of hurricanes. Ultrex’s legendary toughness means that it resists fading, even on darker colors like those used in The Andrews Residence, and is able to withstand coastal extremes such as temperature, and salt and sand. The homeowners can feel secure knowing the special IMPACT glass withstands winds up to 140 miles per hour – after all, it’s tested to withstand the impact of 2x4s shot out of a cannon at 50 feet per second.

If you’re a trade professional with a compelling project to share, please share it with us by entering the 2016 Red Diamond Achiever Awards program before July 15.
