Ski Chalet Renovation

Ski Chalet Renovation: Silver Star Mountain Resort

Ski Chalet Renovation

Last winter we were called to a ski chalet renovation at Silver Star Mountain Resort for a long-time friend of Bercum Builders. A bit more rustic than our usual fare but one of our lead carpenters was excited to take the project on.

Locally milled, flat sawn Hemlock flooring was the ideal choice to complete the Silver Star Mountain ski chalet renovation. Hardwood floors often come prefinished. Softwood like this Hemlock flooring hardly ever do, and that was a good thing. It gave the opportunity to finish the wood precisely as the homeowner liked.

Yup! There’s Homework Involved

Whether you’re looking for a complete renovation or seeking to update a room or two – it’s always about the homework. It used to be that people would check the phone book.  Or ask a friend.  And then start cold-calling companies in the area. Fortunately, that’s not the way we do things anymore. With the push of a button, the Internet can provide massive amounts of info – 24 hours a day. And remember… it’s never the wrong time of the year to consider renovations for your home or vacation hideaway. But planning ahead is key to getting your contractor of choice. So it’s never to early to start doing your research. And in the meantime, give us a call – we love to be considered. Read more about the project details on our blog page – please use this link
