One of the Shaw neighborhood’s most unsightly properties has lost that designation with a $150,000 rehab that restored its front porch and gable elements. The property is located at 4031 Shenandoah. The contractor was BDM Construction.

    My wife and I briefly looked at that house when we were looking to purchase a home in the neighborhood. Vinyl windows or not, what a beautiful transformation! Everyday when I am driving, walking the dog, or running through Shaw and I see all the development, rehabs, new businesses, and the kind caring neighbors, I know we made the correct decision to call Shaw our home.

    *Sigh* Vinyl replacement windows. Will people never learn? Replacements are NOT superior to the originals.

        I surely do appreciate the rehab (the gable-end/porch resto is particularly good), and I hope a good tenant/owner snatches it up, but I consider it a good deed to note the less than impressive ROI on replacements. Especially vinyl, which begins to deteriorate the minute it leaves the extruder. Not to mention it’s basically a poison in both production and use, what with all of those interesting compounds off-gassing. Plus vinyl just looks cheap-cheap-cheap. And leaves me wondering about the rest of the materials I see on a rehabbed house.
