Home Remodeling: Giving a Home a Facelift

We’re proud of this recent project by NexGen Exterior Home Remodeling in Ambler, PA. At first glance, you might think the home was rundown and in bad shape. But the problems with the home weren’t structural—the home was still in good condition. The problems were largely cosmetic and easily fixable. All it needed was a little TLC.

Assessing the job, we were quick to notice that the roof, although dirty and mildewed, was still in good condition—a huge relief to the homeowner. A quick, soft pressure wash solved this problem. But the other problems weren’t solved as easily.

The home’s aluminum siding, for example, was very old, mangled, and falling off part of the garage. The home’s soffit and fascia were worn-out and needed replacing, as well as the old, porous gutters, and the outdated, inefficient exterior doors. Basically, the home needed a complete makeover. But that’s the fun part!

Stone Veneer Installation

Preparing the home for new vinyl siding, we tore down the old, mangled aluminum siding, replaced the rotted plywood sheeting, and wrapped the home in waterproof, Typar Home Wrap®.

After the prep work, we installed brand new CertainTeed® Monogram® light maple vinyl siding, and accentuated it with cream colored cedar impression vinyl siding around the gable ends.

We also installed new vinyl soffit, as well as new light maple heavy gauge aluminum fascia around all the doors and windows. Around the front of the home, we also removed the old brick siding and replaced it with Ledgestone Bucks County Gray stone veneer.

The old gutters were in horrendous condition. Matching the vinyl siding and home’s fascia and soffit, we replaced them with light maple, K-style seamless gutters.

The end result is a home to be proud of!

Free Roof Installation for Roslyn, PA Vietnam Veteran

As a member of the American Legion, Post 798, Warminster…we assist our local member’s armed forces to assist wounded warriors… We contacted many other exterior home remodeling / roofing companies and ONLY NexGen showed up to assist with this family project… They removed the damaged roof and gutters and replaced everything for FREE.

Every once in a while we’re in a position to help out the community. We had the pleasure of doing just that after receiving a call from Michael Caffrey of American Legion post 798, where he asked us to help out a disabled Vietnam Veteran with a new roof through the Pennsylvania National Guard’s Family First program.

We understood their predicament. A roof replacement is an unwelcome expense for anyone, let alone a disabled vet. While a new roof is a sound investment into a home, not everyone can afford it. Some people have more immediate needs than investments, and then there are those who can’t even afford their immediate needs.

As a proud member of the Montgomery County and Bucks County communities, we wanted to help the family out. And as a local roofing contractor, we were in the unique position to actually provide the service ourselves.

We stripped the roof of the old shingles, replaced the rotten plywood, and removed the old gutter system. Using our partnership with Harvey Build Products® and CertainTeed®, we were able to provide the family with high quality CertainTeed Landmark® architectural-style shingles installed by a certified CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™.

We were happy to keep the family dry with a professional roof installation and keep the foundation of their house intact with a properly installed gutter system.

We thank Michael for arranging the project.
