Open joint rainscreen cedar siding and window replacement project – Broadview, Seattle
“As an architect I am always searching for? contractors that perform work to the highest standards, don’t take short cuts, and take ownership of their work. I recently worked with Synapse Construction LLC to install new windows and siding on a remodeling? project in North Seattle? As with most remodeling projects you often run into “unforeseen conditions” the will require changes on the fly. Kyle Keever, owner of Synapse Construction LLC was quick to identify those issues and bring them to my attention so we could both work through an acceptable solution? rather than cover them up for the sake of expediency.
The siding was a “rain-screen” style installation that is becoming more common, but is relatively unknown to many contractors in the United States. Based on experience, Synapes Construction? was quite familiar? with the best practices of installing rain-screen siding? and therefore I was confidant they would complete the project to the highest standards in the industry. The Synapse “team” consists of some very talented craftsman that take take pride in their work. From start to finish they were courteous, meticulous, and eager to do a good job. Kyle? managed the project himself and made frequent visits to the site He really took ownership of the project which is harder to find these days in the construction industry. I appreciated his desire to collaborate with me on detailing and making sure that the finishing touches were executed precisely.
I would definitely recommend Synapse Construction LLC if you are considering replacing windows and or siding for your home. If they can satisfy a discriminating architect, you will be more than happy with the end product on your home.”

#1 Cedar shingle siding replacement project – Capitol Hill, Seattle
Kyle and Team re-sided our 1905-vintage Capitol Hill house with red cedar sawn shingles, including window re-trimming and soffit rehabilitation. This was the best contractor experience we have, in the 35 years we’ve owned this house. Kyle Keever, company principal, is a true professional. – Vitaly, who did nearly all the work, was easy to work with and paid good attention to quality. – Kyle came up with good new solution to soffit venting; one that we had not considered previously. – We appreciated the attention to daily clean-up and care taken to avoid inconveniencing neighbors. – Overall, they did a good job listening and communicating in general. Just the right amount of “asking questions” vs. “going ahead and making decisions based on their best judgement”. – And, they honored their price, even when things took longer than expected.
