DIY COLLABORATION SERVICEWE'RE READY TO HELP YOU MAKE IT PERFECT
START SMART — SO YOU CAN FINISH STRONG
Do-it-yourselfers, we know what drives you to tackle a big home improvement or renovation project. It’s what drives us, too. One thing we’ve learned in this business is that no one really does it alone—not if they ever want to get started, and certainly not if they ever want to get it finished. That’s why Aleto offers our special DIY Collaboration Service, offering tailored assistance to help you start smart and finish strong.
LET’S BEGIN AT THE BEGINNING
While we’re able to help at any stage, we bring the greatest value at the outset of your project—we can help you plan to avoid common pitfalls, provide experienced recommendations on materials and, of course, we can bring the muscle where it’s needed. Work with Aleto for help with:
- Planning out your project to realize your vision
- Setting support beams
- Building the shell of your addition
- Installing or modifying HVAC, electrical and plumbing
- Coming in after demo to remove a load bearing wall and secure your structure
With Aleto in your corner, you can count on a smart start that makes it easy for you to finish strong—and make it all yours.
SETTING THE FRAMEWORK FOR A SECOND STORY
Handy homeowners called upon Aleto’s expertise with city homes to create a spacious second floor addition. After careful planning, Aleto framed the structure, did the exterior finishes as well as the electrical and HVAC then handed the reins over to the homeowners so they could put their mark on the inside finishes.
TAKING DOWN WALLS AND OPENING SPACES
Over the years Aleto has become the city’s load-bearing experts. With the experience of dozens of load-bearing wall removals under their belts you can rest assured your home is in safe hands when you want to open your floorplan or extend your spaces beyond your current footprint.
WHOLE HOME RENOVATION WITH FIRST AND SECOND STORY ADDITIONS
A small home in Webster Groves was craving more space. Aleto was called in to lay the ground work for a full home renovation with single and second story additions. After Aleto carefully completed the demo of the existing property they framed the new spaces in both the first and second floors of the home and added roofing. Aleto prepared for the rest of the project by rough framing for a beautiful front porch, fireplace, stairs and functional interior wall floorplan. The homeowners then took over and completed the interior finishes of the home, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, drywall and all the decorative finishes that make a house a home.
SETTING WALLS FOR A SPECTACULAR LOWER LEVEL
Updating the lower level of a home in St. Louis Hills called for creative design and execution. The homeowners wanted a more functional space and that first called for moisture control systems to be put in place including an interior drain tile system. Once the basement was dry we worked the homeowners to demo the existing wall paneling, bathroom and more. We got right to work on framing the new walls, installing the mechanical systems, drywall and installing a bathroom fixtures. The homeowner then took the paint brush to put a splash of color on the walls and trim to complete the basement renovation.
