Cedar Posts and Brackets on Craftsman Style Overhang

Project Info

Location: West Caldwell, NJ
Scope of Work: Exterior Carpentry and Exterior Staining

These West Caldwell, NJ homeowners called us in to secure, as well as beautify, their backdoor entryway. The large overhang needed to have its support columns replaced. They decided to change the look of the columns and add new decorative cedar brackets and ceiling.

Monk’s Method

Before removing the existing posts, the carpenters set up temporary supports. Once the overhang was properly supported, the carpenters carefully removed the rotted posts. New cedar posts were then installed. The carpenters also put up a beadboard ceiling, a new cedar casing and decorative cedar brackets.

When the carpenters were finished, the painting team arrived on site. The stained the new cedar posts and trim a deep mahogany. This overhang creates a quiet little outdoor spot to enjoy good weather. Plus, it is a real stunner!

In just two days this cedar carpentry and staining project was complete.
