The loss of a house to a fire is devastating on so many levels. Your home is the host to your most cherished memories. It’s the place you go to seek comfort and spend time with family.

When Marc and Susanna Monseau lost their home to a fire, they wanted to work with a builder who would support them every step of the way. It was a difficult time, but the personal service and attention to detail they received from Richard Dickson and his team made a tremendous difference in the process.

“It was a big job,” Susanna recalls. “We needed new floors, walls and windows throughout the house. We needed three new bathrooms and a new kitchen. We also added a brand new bedroom over the garage.”

That bedroom features a unique ceiling with exposed Glulam construction and an elegant copper roof. Glulam refers to a glued laminated timber that is as strong as it is beautiful.

Dickson’s designer helped the client choose all the finishes and also provided them with contacts at kitchen, bathroom and tile vendors. This made the process run smoothly and efficiently. The lovely Colonial home, located in Princeton, NJ, also features stunning plumbing fixtures from Ferguson throughout the new bathrooms and kitchen.

“The fire was a terrible experience for our client,” says Richard. “It was personally satisfying to know that the assistance we gave to them and the work we performed made the return to their home easier.”
