Valley Forge, PA (PRWEB) February 13, 2015
Now available for viewing, the eighth webisode in the CertainTeed 2013 Living Spaces® Facebook® Home Makeover Video Contest series showcases the installation of CertainTeed® Restoration Millwork® trim, ornamenting the exterior of the Bielfelt family’s Mentor, Ohio home with unique, decorative accents. Thanks to its wood-like appearance and virtually maintenance-free qualities, Restoration Millwork cellular PVC trim was the ideal choice for phenomenal curb appeal.
The webisode follows the Bielfelt family’s quest to find the perfect finishing touches to complete the $75,000 exterior renovation to their century-old home. The family frequently referred to the previous contest winner’s unique trim details when describing the look and feel they were seeking for their cottage-style home. To create their vision, Restoration Millwork J-Pocket trim was installed around windows and doors. Several windows were topped with Restoration Millwork crown molding accents, which brought dimension and an elegant appearance to the driveway side of the historic house.
For the final dramatic design elements, Lasting Details, Inc. of Lansing, Michigan, was called upon to custom fabricate Restoration Millwork architectural embellishments that would perfectly showcase the timeless character of the home.
The webisode demonstrates the detailed, three-step process used to transform a three-dimensional digital model into the cupola that now adorns the roof of the garage. A white gable pediment added to the front peak of the house along with the cupola perched on the garage conveys the undeniable charm that the homeowner wanted, and perfectly compliments the decorative porch post brackets on the front of the home — all custom designed and fabricated by Lasting Details.
Lasting Details, Inc., uses Restoration Millwork to create custom architectural details with the look of real wood but the durability of PVC. Their team uses CNC machinery for true CAD/CAM custom fabricating to create finishes for almost every style home — from early American and colonial, to Victorian, craftsman, arts and crafts and neo-classical styles, or to meet plan drawing specifications.
CertainTeed 5-Star Green and Master Shingle Applicator contractor, RJK Construction Co., of Willoughby, Ohio, completed the installation of the enviable crisp, white trim and unique accents.
As the 2013 grand prize winners of the $75,000 exterior makeover contest, the Bielfelts, are the subjects of a series of CertainTeed Living Spaces 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.
