When Ed Wuchter co-founded Certitude Home Improvements, he brought with him 20+ years of experience in the industry. Having previously worked as an installer for roofing, siding, and windows and later in the sales, service, and design departments for some of the biggest contractors in the area, Ed had come to know the field inside and out. As he became more and more familiar with how the companies he worked for operated, Ed began to see potential areas for improvement in how the industry as a whole operates. When Ed found that Ryan Dean, a long time work associate and friend, was of a similar mind they combined their efforts and created Certitude.
As a founder of Certitude, Ed focuses his time and effort into insuring that everyone who interacts with Certitude is educated about their project, happy with the service they receive, and 100% satisfied at the end of their job. He believes in building a relationship with every customer and insuring that they make sound decisions regarding products and services that they will be happy with for years to come.
Outside of Certitude, Ed has a second full time job as a husband and father of six children! When he’s not volunteering to run one of his children’s wrestling tournaments or other athletic functions, Ed enjoys spending his free time fishing, golfing, or tinkering with his RC cars and planes.
This homeowner had a stucco issue and the entire house needed new siding and windows. Ed our estimator helped design this homes exterior using Certainteed insulated CedarBoard Woodgrain single 7" Clapboard in Savannah Wicker with white corners for a touch of design flair. We also installed Certainteed stone facade to one section of the home and added a metal standing seam roof to the front entrance way roof. In addition we built a penn eave over the 2 garage doors to give a little overhang when it rains at the garage entrace. We also installed Simonton Brickmold 300 series window throughout the home.
This design ended up with the perfect color along with the added Scalloped siding on the front gable to really make this house stand out from the neighbors and make it look sweet. Ed our estimator was able to pull this project together based on his knowledge of the products and the customers design preferences.
This home recieved a Certainteed Carolina Beaded Siding in Granite Gray upgrade. We added some flair with vinyl lineals around some of the windows and added cornice molding to the top of the garage windows. Also we replaced the gutters they are now enlarged 6"K Aluminum gutters with 3x4 downspouts. This job was topped off with new vinyl soffits and custom bent capping to the rakes and fascia boards.
This homeower chose to use Certainteed Insulated CedarBoards with a single 7" exposure siding panel in Oxford Blue. Also the gutters, soffits, shutters and capping all got replaced as well. In addition to all that we installed Beechworth Fiberglass windows with wood interiors...these are some strong windows and will never rot like wood or bend like vinyl. Oh and for a nice touch we added a vinyl cornice molding to the top of the lower front windows.
The customer had failing stucco and needed it removed. They chose Certainteed Carolina Beaded Siding in Granite Gray.
This customer was tired of maintaining the wood siding and decided to make a change. The issue he had was that a traditional style siding (running horizontally) was not appealing to him. Knowing that Ed helped design the use of Certianteeds Vertical Board and Batton siding on his home giving him the look he wanted without the hassle of all the maintnance a real wood board and batton siding requires.
The Homeowner was interested in replacing the siding and also making the house more energy efficient. In order to do that we replaced the windows with Simonton Vinyl windows and wrapped the house in a Radiant Barrier house wrap which is under the siding. We installed the trending Certianteed Monogram Woodgrain D4 Clapboard in Pacific Blue. To finish this home off we replaced the soffit and capping.
This customer met with Ed our estimator and after many visits and design configurations they decided to use the following materials to update this home. The siding was replaced using Certainteed D6 Clapboard insulated CedarBoards in the trending color Pacific Blue. In addition around each window a vinyl lineal was installed to make the windows pop out along with new capping to the rakes and fascias and new gutter and downspouts. Also the windows got replaced using Anderson Fibrex single hung windows on the home.
