Valley Forge, PA (PRWEB) January 08, 2015
The Bielfelt family of Mentor, Ohio, no longer frets about their decaying, century-old porches thanks to the installation of new front and back porches with CertainTeed® EverNew® railing systems and porch posts to the exterior living spaces of their recently remodeled, cottage-style home.
The seventh webisode in the 2013 Exterior Living Spaces® Home Makeover online series documents the installation of EverNew® aluminum-reinforced white columns and Oxford railing with colonial posts, as well as the seamless Beaded Triple 2-inch soffit in complimentary white, creating aesthetically appealing areas for relaxing and entertaining.
The new pristine railing system, installed by CertainTeed 5-Star Green and Master Shingle Applicator contractor, RJK Construction Co., of Willoughby, Ohio, creates a fashionable and inviting atmosphere the neighbors are sure to envy.
As the 2013 grand prize winner of the $75,000 exterior makeover contest, the Bielfelts are the subject of a series of webisodes documenting the renovation of their 100-year-old home. The series follows the family, along with CertainTeed 5-Star Green, 5-Star Fence and Master Shingle Applicator contractors, from the planning stages of the renovation through its completion.
In the last webisode, RJK Construction Co. installed Cedar Impressions® Double 7-inch Staggered Perfection Shingles in Heritage Cream and Spruce for the majority of the home’s front-facing exterior, with accents of Cedar Impressions 6 ¼-inch Half-Round Shingles in shades of Autumn Red and Spruce. Other CertainTeed products utilized for the exterior renovation were Monogram® 46XL siding in Heritage Cream, Beaded SuperCorner™ and InvisiVent® Triple 3-1/3-inch vented soffit, both in Colonial White.
