HEROES IN ACTION
Working with Rebuilding Together, Swinerton Builders
Portland provided home improvements and enhanced
the living conditions of a very deserving homeowner.
With an age of more than 100 years, the Sears
Catalog-looking home was heavily overgrown with
thick vegetation, the exterior paint had not been
redone in decades, and various items collected over
the years reached the basement ceiling. The team was
tasked to remove the shrubbery, repaint the exterior,
and clear a pathway in the basement to allow the City
of Portland to make plumbing repairs.
On prep day, the team removed the majority of the
vegetation and pressure washed the exterior of the
home. On the big day, they put the vegetation in a
drop box, scraped the exterior of the house to remove
flaking paint, and cleared a path in the basement.
Several other improvements were made including a
custom doorframe and a new front door to provide
the homeowner with necessary security the house
was previously lacking. The power company was
called in to fix a power line that was pulling off the
home’s wood siding; they also assisted with painting
the roof eave from their bucket lift. Inches of dirt was
removed to make the sidewalk usable, flower beds
were reworked, shallow spots were filled in, and an
enormous helping of new bark dust was poured by
the crew. The painting crew successfully removed
flaking paint, and with the help of one of our painting
subcontractors, added a fresh coat of primer.
Special thanks to the team for your efforts!
