In 2015 Arroyo Seco Construction had the pleasure of working with amazing clients and on exciting projects that kept us immersed in the work we are passionate about.
Construction, Renovations, Remodels, Landscaping, Hardscaping, Metal Work and Masonry rounded out a year of rewarding projects.
Store front and interior renovation with construction of new balcony and wheelchair access ramp. Home remodel with full interior and exterior gutting and refurbishing.
New Pools, Fountains and fitness areas were developed along with brand new landscapes and garden features. Landscapes were designed recognition of our climate conditions reaching our low water goals, while achieving the sensation of lush and texturally interesting plantings.
Metal Work / Masonry
Our master masons and metal workers produced magnificent works of art, fulfilling both their needed form and function while creating exquisite focal pieces.
We at Arroyo Seco Construction wish everyone an exceptional holiday and fantastic new year!
The natural beauty of stone finishes on walls adds a structural depth to the hardscape features of homes and within the landscape. Stone Veneer is a popular option in construction in achieving this effect; desired for its’ low cost, low material use and reduced weight compared to traditional ‘Brick and Block’.
Masonry veneer walls consist of a single non-structural external layer of masonry work, backed by an air space. The innermost element is usually structural wall, and may consist of wood or metal frame within the Cavity wall. A benefit to this structure is that insulation can be incorporated into the cavity, providing additional thermal protection.
One factor that effects it’s lower cost is the structural framing or masonry backup can be erected first to allow the rest of the building structure to be completed concurrently with the outer veneer.
In general most masonry veneer walls can be completed in a shorter time frame, using less labor than a solid masonry wall. Because the veneer uses a fraction of the material, its’ weight will be considerably less benefiting economies n foundations and structural support
In the garden landscape the pergola fills several roles beyond creation of shade. They often can provide an articulated sense of order between two spaces; used as a means to lead from one area to another, to define the beginning, end or to highlight a particular garden feature.
In designing Pergolas the form and materials will work with the existing architectural features to create harmony within the landscape. The dominate and pleasing horizontal and perpendicular lines of the structure work with the overall style and aesthetic within the garden to enhance the space.
