We sometimes take on small projects that will make a house look just a little bit more up to date — we’ll replace a few windows, add new shutters and/or update the gutter system — but we love taking on huge projects that fundamentally transform the look of a person’s home. While we put our best into everything we do, it’s these major transformations that turn out to be our favorite roofing projects.

One recent project really let us make that big difference in the look of our customer’s home (it also gave us an opportunity to take pictures utilizing our new drone!). This particular ranch home has a great layout with a nice stone base that gave it some charm. Unfortunately, the roofing was aged and the white panel siding dated the appearance of the home.

You can see from the images below how the house looked before we began our project.

After New Roof and Siding Installation

From top down this home went from the 1970’s to 2017 in just a few short weeks. We began with the roof, replacing it with a Tamko Heritage AR 30yr shingle in Thunderstorm Grey. We then wrapped the windows and door in white trim, replacing the dated look of shutters, and replaced the white panel siding with LP Smartside- Lake States LX Pro Siding in Charcoal. The peaks were updated with shakes and a new front door accented in burgundy completed the look. As you can see, we kept the beautiful stone siding at the base of the home but doesn’t it look updated too? The colors of the stone really pop now with the coordinating siding, trim and accent colors.
