Design-Build Architecture Options

When you work with Wentworth, we present you with different options. Many homeowners want to remodel but are interested in preserving the historic style of their home (Tudor, Georgian, Italianate, etc.). We can do this by presenting a few options for additions or other types of remodels that stay true to the home’s original architecture.
