Last year, the Heller Built team moved into a new home of its own – a home with a nearly 150-year old history. 

In 2023, our team took on a full renovation of 160 N. Broadway, a High Victorian Gothic townhouse in downtown Lexington. The building now serves not only as the physical headquarters of Heller Built, but as a constant source of inspiration for our historic home restoration projects, thanks to the enduring craftsmanship of the original build.

Bricklayer adding bricks to a wall with an air gap behind it.

Maintaining an air gap behind the cladding on our homes is essential. Whether it is brick, siding, or stonethe system is essentially the same.

How do we do it? We create a continuous uninterrupted gap between the back of your cladding and the face of your wall sheathing. This ensures that air can move through this gap, promoting drying. Drying prevents potential long-term water/moisture damage to your home, which can lead to mold, rot, and very costly repairs in the future.
