We combine our award-winning construction defect expertise and contracting know-how to provide you with an exterior renovation that is both beautiful and structurally sound. It’s not only critical to select quality products, but vital to know how to install them with a variety of adjoining exterior components to prevent water damage and ventilation issues. AMEK applies over 20 years of roofing, siding, decks and windows expertise and experience to every exterior renovation.
Each, and every exterior project is unique. Each has its own challenges and rewards. While the end results are often beautiful and give the owners a great sense of pride, at AMEK we want to make sure the journey of getting to that end-result is also nothing short of great. We call our process LifeDesign™.
1. Listen & Learn
Our LifeDesign™ process starts with understanding your unique exterior project whether it’s single-family or multi-family. Focusing on the challenges you might be facing, we then explore ways we can bring you more enjoyment with your home. Our process takes into account your budget, style preferences, and timeframe to deliver a great product.
2. Design And Refine
Our talented architects, engineers, exterior designers and project developers collaborate on every detail of your exterior remodel to present inspired designs that make you beam with pride every time you pull up to your home.
3. Select And Schedule
We guide you in the selection of the best materials based on the design and scope of your project. Then, we assemble a timetable, so you know what our field crew will be doing throughout each stage of your project.
4. Build And Adapt
The trucks and craftsmen arrive. It’s time to get the project rolling! This moment is as exciting for us as it is for you. We understand even the best remodel plan can be hit by unexpected circumstances and with exterior remodels we can never forget about Mother Nature. We’ll keep you informed in advance of any timeline adjustments, so there are no surprises.
5. Admire And Reflect
As your project nears completion and you can see all the finishing touches on your beautiful curb appeal transformation, you’ll love the results and be glad you made the decision to do an exterior renovation.
6. Celebrate And Live
This is the best part. Celebrate the beautiful results. Enjoy the place you call home like never before!
The roofing, siding, windows and exterior design experience we bring to every AMEK project is forged from years of hard work specializing in construction defect remediation and testifying for homeowners in cases involving poor exterior design and craftsmanship. This is the legacy we bring to our exterior work and we call it, the AMEK Exteriors Difference.
We guide you through the unique advantages and drawbacks of the various exterior materials and methods to give you confidence your home will weather the beautiful but demanding seasons in Minnesota.
Here’s more information about our background on value engineering, roofing and siding knowledge, budget planning for HOAs, and litigation experience.
Building Codes & Construction Laws
Years of remodeling and new home construction has given us deep knowledge of national and Minnesota Building Code regulations. Thanks to decades of work in construction defect projects involving litigation, we’ve gained valuable insight in construction law and how it relates to homeowners, homeowner associations and builders.
Litigation Testimonials: Plaintiff & Defense Experience
AMEK provides testimonials for arbitration, mediation, and trial cases representing plaintiffs and the defense side of cases (see Paul Schmidt’s CV). We know you want someone who can confidently relay their knowledge of how the defect happened and what it will take to restore it – structurally and aesthetically.
Prioritizing, budgeting and selection of materials make a big difference in the overall plan. AMEK analyzes the pieces to determine priorities and alternative products keeping the project specifications and budget framework in mind.
Roofing & Siding Product Knowledge
Our understanding of past and present construction materials and methods inform our recommendations and allow for a fully integrated exterior system. AMEK looks for materials with long-lasting strength, superior construction and appearance.
Budget Planning for Homeowner Associations and Management Companies
AMEK helps associations assess damage and determine an order of remediation for budget planning so repairs can be done systematically to lower total project cost and reduce interruptions for tenants.
“Because I know the Schmidt family and AMEK ethically believe in doing the right thing when it comes to assisting property owners, I trust their results, knowledge and skill in determining what it takes to fix problems. My clients and I rely on AMEK to be genuinely honest. That’s why I will continue to partner with AMEK on my cases.”
