At M. Kenton Franklin, Inc. we consider fine home remodeling an art form that challenges us to exceed the homeowner’s expectations. We work with each homeowner’s budget and excel at finding creative ways to transform pre-existing structures, no matter the limitations.
M. Kenton Franklin, Inc. takes great pride in treating each project as if our own family lives there and coming up with beautiful yet practical designs. We don’t have a group of contractors just for our remodeling projects; we use the same highly skilled craftsmen that work on our custom homes to give you quality craftsmanship far and above what the normal remodeler can offer. No matter the size of the project, we are happy to help you transform your home – everything from window, counter top, appliance and lighting replacement to larger additions such as a new bedroom, complete kitchen remodel, sunroom or deck.
We are excited to speak to you about your ideas and show you that we aren’t your typical remodel firm - we offer quality and value beyond what you expect. Give us a call or email today to start making your home dreams come true!
What you don’t see!
Urethane foam is sprayed into the ENTIRE wall cavity not just around the doors and windows. This seals all penetrations, electric boxes, joints and seams. This creates a vastly superior air infiltration and insulation system and makes air infiltration virtually nonexistent.
The crawl space walls and floor joist band boards are also sprayed to allow no airflow between floors and provide crawlspace insulation that won’t wick moisture or come loose as in batt insulation or glued on panels.
This foam not only provides an additional insulation R-value of 6.8 /inch but also provides a complete air infiltration barrier.
This is just another example of how we try to use the finest products available to give you a superior quality new home.
Tufcon Plastered wall systems are a vastly superior wall finish system that provides a seamless, very smooth wall system. There are no nail holes or taped seams to show thru from light reflection like you would see in a drywall wall system. You will not find this quality of wall finish system in other builder’s homes. There are also many beautiful ceiling and wall textures available.
We use a professional closet company that allows you to meet them at your new home, walk thru and custom design the fully adjustable shelving systems in all closets. You can create the design that is needed for each room, whether it is for little children, your owner’s closet or a hobby room, the choices are yours. Wall mounted, they leave the floors unobstructed for ease of cleaning and offer more storage options
We offer a 2-10 warranty as a standard feature on our homes in order to provide additional peace-of-mind to our homeowners. This warranty provides a two year systems coverage and ten-year structural warranty.
Each garage features floor drains to collect melting snow or ice. Also makes it easy to wash the car or garage out whenever you want. Wood grain pegboard line the garage walls to provide unparalleled storage space. If the plan allows, we build the garage ceiling joist system so we can install a pull down attic stairs for extra storage convenience.
Walls between bathrooms and bedrooms where they back up to activity areas are filled with sound deadening insulation before the Tufcon plaster board is installed. This helps eliminate a large portion of sound transmission from one room to another.
Whole house electric surge protectors are built directly into the electrical panel. These cover the entire electrical system in the home (plugs, appliances, inside and out) not just a few plugs scattered throughout the house.
Most Builders sub-floors are glued to the floor joist but our subfloor is glued not only to the super straight engineered I- Joist system but we glue ALL the subfloor tongue and grooved edges to each other AND both nail and screw the subfloor to the joist . This creates an incredibly stiff smooth and silent subfloor to attach, ceramic, hardwood or carpet to.
