Seifert Construction has been awarded the 2017 Builder of the Year by Versatex Trimboard at the International Builders Show in Orlando, Florida. This award recognizes Seifert Construction’s commitment to being the premier builder of multi-million dollar homes and their use of the Versatex products for over 13 years.
Can smarter materials and better engineering mitigate the risk of living near the sea? Fortunately, architect John Berg had been adamant, even before Sandy hit, that their project meets the highest standards of resiliency. “We knew we had to build a rock-solid house,” says Berg, who met the Bombara’s through the contractors at Seifert Construction.
Fred Seifert, who, with his brother, John, owns Seifert Construction, a top local builder of high-end homes. “What I see are a lot of younger people, mid-40s to 50s, who are building weekend homes…. I think five years ago, it was rare to find a home on the North Fork over a million dollars. While it’s not the norm, there’s quite a few now.”
“Some of the homes in the neighborhood took weeks or months to get back in shape,” he said. “But all we had to do was power wash the salt and seaweed away. Forty-eight hours after the storm, this house looked like nothing had ever happened. The trim was one of the elements we were especially proud of, and now we could see that it had been worth the effort. It was like a proof of longevity. ”
