2017 Home Tranformations

2017 was the year of some monumental home transformations. Let’s re-cap a couple show stoppers!

A lucky home in Bloomington, IL went from real wood shakes on the roof to a maintenance- free synthetic wood shaker shingle. Along with the faux wood roof, they added in real copper flashings and window pans.

Next transformation goes to a county ranch. The homeowners wanted to freshen up the look by replacing real cedar siding with English Wedgewood Blue vinyl siding.

 

 

This lovely colonial style home wanted to be the talk of the street by going from a neutral color siding to a striking dark grey siding with contrasting white trim. They also traded the shutters for wider window casings; modernizing it slightly.

The last feature home from 2017 enriched their home by exchanging the discolored tan siding for a darker brown. The also traded in their shutters for window casings. The half moon windows on the side of the home were covered up.

First Roof Of The Season

Our guys have been anxious to get back to roofing after this long, hard winter.  When your house is having the roof replaced make sure your contractors don’t skip on the safety of themselves and your property! All workers should be wearing a harness and for certain grades of steepness toe bars should be installed. Windows in the concentrated area of working should be covered with boards to prevent and scratches or broken windows.  For added assurance, have your contractor list you as an additional insured. Before and after pictures soon to come!
