In this DISCOVER VERSATEX feature we again visit the Jersey shore, this time in the town of Longport, just outside of Atlantic City. There we find one of the largest homes ever to have Versatex prominently featured both on the outside and the inside. This massive vacation home of 12 bedrooms spans an entire city block from 25th street to 26th street just off famous Atlantic Avenue. Right along the beach in an area heavily damaged by Super Storm Sandy in 2012, this house faces the elements and demands high performing building products.
In a business started by his father John Sr. and Uncle Ben in the 1950’s, second generation builder John Van Duyne and his sister Cathy have taken Van Duyne Builders to a new level, building some of the most impressive homes on the East Coast. John’s clients primarily own multiple homes and when they choose to spend their summer on the Jersey shore, want a home that is architecturally stunning, comfortably livable and free from maintenance. For this project, John discusses how Versatex was used both on the exterior, in traditional and intricate radius trim applications, as well as in the interior, where below 12 foot elevation local codes require moisture resistant products after Sandy.
Please enjoy the short video above featuring John walking you through this impressive home and DISCOVER VERSATEX for yourself. To learn more about Van Duyne Builders, visit them online at vanduynebuilders.com.
