Home Improvement Project | Philadelphia, PA
We love helping brand new homeowners as they put their stamp on a newly purchased home! NexGen partnered with our customers to refresh their house with new siding, doors, and windows. This home improvement project in Philadelphia, PA highlights the expert services provided by our team members.
Roof Replacement | Philadelphia, PA
Our customer in Philadelphia, PA chose the beautiful Atlantic Blue Landmark shingle for their roof replacement project. They are certified to meet the industry’s toughest standards and the dual-layered construction will give you extra comfort as an added element of protection. The Landmark shingles are covered under CertainTeed warranty so you can rest assured that your roof is protected even after the install.
Roof Replacement | Pottstown, PA
On this recent roof replacement in Pottstown, PA our install team has laid down the CertainTeed RoofRunner underlayment to prepare the roof for the shingle installation. This high performance, water resistant product repels moisture and backs up your asphalt shingles as a second barrier against leaks.
CertainTeed Integrity Roof System Installation | Jenkintown, PA
Our customer’s home in Jenkintown, PA was ready for a roof replacement and NexGen had the answer in the form of the CertainTeed Integrity Roof System. After we removed the existing roofing system, we began the install with a thorough inspection of the plywood and replaced what was necessary. The CertainTeed Integrity Roof System consists of the RoofRunner underlayment followed by the WinterGuard ice and water shield. The SwiftStart starter strips were installed right before the Landmark Pro Asphalt Shingles in Burnt Sienna. The ventilated Ridge Vent capped off the entire project.
Deck and Pergola Installation | Broomall, PA
The homeowner in Broomall, PA had an existing wooden deck that was in rough shape and weathered. The crew removed the railings and decking. We replaced the decking with Trex Select Decking in Pebble Gray. We used the Trex Transcend System for the railings. The pergola is created using pressure treated lumber. We put white Trex post sleeves over the pressure treated wood for the columns and painted the top of the pergola with exterior white paint.
With the exception of the pressure treated wood, the entire deck and pergola was built using the Trex Decking system.
Extensive Exterior Home Remodel | Abington, PA
Large-scale remodeling projects are some of our favorite jobs for one simple reason: With a such large amount of work being done, it allows us to create a uniformed style that really complements each other. We were fortunate enough to complete this large-scale remodeling job for a homeowner in Abington, PA.
As part of this home’s particular overhaul, we installed a new flat roof, vinyl siding, entry doors, gutters, and soffit & fascia. While not a total remodel, this was a massive undertaking with great results.
Replaced Asbestos Siding with Vinyl Siding | Magnolia NJ
We recently removed some old asbestos siding and installed Sterling Gray-colored CertainTeed® Monogram™ vinyl siding for a homeowner in Magnolia, New Jersey. Removing asbestos siding is really dangerous. You really need to know what you’re doing because creating clouds of asbestos dust will pose a significant health risk.
When you hire a suitable contractor, however, the health risk is negligible. The most important step is actually soaking the siding with water. This will largely prevent those asbestos dust clouds from forming when the siding breaks apart.
Technical Roof Installation | Glenside PA
Dealing with a very technical roof requires a contractor who really understands roofing. Some roofs, like a plain gabled roof, are easy to install. But when you’re dealing with valleys, sidewalls, skylights, and a chimney, you really need a roofing contractor who understands flashing and how to properly dry-in a roof with underlayment.
With so many areas that are prone to leaks, sloppy work can cause an absolute mess. Luckily, at NexGen, we’re CertainTeed® SELECT ShingleMasters™. As manufacturer certified roofers, you can be sure that when you hire us for the job, we’re fully qualified to handle any roofing job—no matter how technical.
Roof, Gutter, and Siding Installation | Abington, PA
Not every client needs a total home makeover. Sometimes replacing a few important parts of the home will overhaul the home’s entire aesthetic. Not only will you improve the home’s overall look, but you’ll also improve the look of existing features.
Here’s a good example of using a quality home remodel to accentuate a home’s existing features. While the home’s stone veneer was still in good shape, the roof, vinyl siding, and fascia all needed replacing. By matching the colors of the new materials with the old materials, we were able to bring back the charm of the old stone veneer.
Energy Efficient Home Remodel | Jenkintown, PA
Insulating a home has energy efficient benefits year-round. During the summer months you’ll keep the cold air inside, while during the winter months you’ll trap the heat inside. This may not seem intuitive—keeping a home both cool and warm—but it’s because insulating a home helps regulate the internal temperature.
This means that during the summer months, when you have the air conditioning going, your home will be cooler because the cool air is trapped inside the home. But during the winter months, when the heat is on, your home will be much warmer because the heat won’t escape.
Front Porch with Overhang | Glenside, PA
Front porches require a deceptive amount of work. They’re a perfect example of seemingly small jobs requiring a wide range of expertise. This new front porch we constructed for a homeowner in Glenside, PA, is a perfect example. The job might be seem simple enough: Removing the home’s old stone stairs and replacing them with a front porch and overhang.
But while the job may seem simple, it actually required many different skills. As an expert exterior home remodeling contractor, we were able to perform all the necessary work.
Roofing and Gutters | Chalfont, PA
As spring is here and the rains that come with it, now is the best time to overhaul your home’s water management system. A Chalfont, PA, homeowner recently asked us to do just that by installing a new roof and seamless gutters.
With all of our roofing projects, we install a CertainTeed® Integrity Roof System™. As manufacturer certified installers (CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMasters™), we ensure that CertainTeed’s top quality products are installed correctly—with the added benefit of additional warranties.
Residential Roofing Project | Philadelphia, PA
NexGen Exterior Home Remodeling is a complete exterior home remodeling company. There’s no need to call multiple contractors for different aspects of the job. We’ll handle it all.
With this particular job, the homeowner asked us to re-roof their home as well as re-side their dormers. As partners with CertainTeed we were able to do both by using their excellent products: the former, with a CertainTeed Integrity Roof System; the latter, by re-siding with CertainTeed Monogram vinyl siding.
Exterior Doors, Gutters, and Vinyl Siding | Jenkintown, PA
Accenting a home can have dramatic effects. The major obstacle when performing small remodels like this is blending the different styles and color schemes. But a talented remodeling contractor understands style and color theory.
With this particular job, the homeowner wanted to replace the old vinyl siding on the second story and dormers. They also wanted to replace the old gutter system with a new seamless gutter system, and replace two exterior doors–including the front entry door.
Residential Roof & Siding | Huntingdon Valley, PA
Here are the results from a recent roof replacement on a ranch-style home in Huntingdon Valley. The job was a little unique because the previous roof installation was a “cover-over.”
Cover-overs are perfectly acceptable roofing options for savings savvy homeowners that would like a new roof, but the old roof isn’t in dire need of replacement. Rather than remove the old shingles, you simply install new shingles over the old ones. By doing this, you can save a ton of money on a roof installation.
Roof Replacement, Gutters, Porch | Abington, PA
A quality home in Abington, PA that needed a few major renovations: roof replacement, gutter installation, and repairs to the front porch. Nothing we couldn’t handle.
We started with the most important part of the job—a new roof. Homeowners can rest assured whenever they hire us for a roofing job. As a quality roofing contractor, not only are we licensed and insured, but we’re also manufacturer certified—which comes with added benefits and protections for homeowners.
Vinyl Siding, Gutters, and More! | Abington, PA
As we began the project, we removed the home’s old, dingy siding, rundown soffit, beat-up fascia, and damaged gutters. After we removed and disposed of the old materials, we started the prep work by replacing the plywood sheeting of the exterior walls and wrapped them in a breathable, waterproof membrane—Typar® Homewrap™.
When we replaced the plywood and completed the prep work, we began replacing the home’s old siding with CertainTeed’s® Carolina Beaded™ granite gray-colored vinyl siding. Designed to emulate freshly painted wood, this premium vinyl siding is as durable as it is beautiful.
Giving a Home a Facelift | Ambler, PA
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.
Vinyl Siding, Windows, Gutters | Chalfont, PA
Here’s a look at a recent large-scale project for a homeowner in Chalfont, PA. We’re proud of the job we did for the homeowner. Replacing the old asbestos siding, inefficient windows, rotted fascia, and outdated gutter system—in short, we gave a solid, but old home the facelift it desperately needed.
The results speak for themselves.
As far as remodeling jobs go, this job was pretty unique because of the old asbestos siding. While asbestos is a fantastic insulator and extremely durable, it also comes with significant health risks (if it breaks apart).
Vinyl Siding Over Old Stucco | Oreland, PA
As home remodeling experts we’re always intrigued by unique jobs that make use of our extensive knowledge and skills. Take this vinyl siding job for a homeowner in Oreland, PA, for example.
This was a unique job that allowed us to showcase our unique skills. Vinyl siding is traditionally used when covering wood, and stucco is traditionally found in drier, southern climates, so this was a unique situation that required expert knowledge. With our extended experience, we were the perfect contractor for the job.
Roofing, Windows, Gutters | Ambler, PA
Large-scale home remodels are some of our favorite jobs. Not only are we able to replace multiple parts of a home, but we’re also able to match the different colors and styles together for greater uniformity. With a large-scale home remodeling job, you’re really able to see a dramatic change in the home’s overall look.
This particular job was unique because we didn’t need to replace the most noticeable part of the home—the vinyl siding. But even without replacing it, you can clearly see the difference in how good the rest of the home—and the vinyl siding—looks. It’s night and day when you clean it up and replace the other materials around it.
Rubber Roof Installation | Philadelphia, PA
Flat roofs require different roofing systems than standard “pitched roofs.” This particular “flat roof,” wasn’t actually flat. But because the “pitch” of the roof (i.e. the incline) was so minimal, we had to install a different kind of roof—a “rubber roof.”
Asphalt shingles don’t work on roofs without pitches, or on roofs with very minimal pitches, because shingles require a steep enough pitch for the rainwater to flow down them. When water can stagnate, or wind can blow the water underneath the shingles, you’re going to have a leaky roof. Rubber roofs solve this problem.
Vinyl Siding Over Old Stucco | Abington, PA
Most vinyl siding jobs are for homes with wooden exteriors, but it’s also possible to install vinyl siding over other home exteriors, like stucco, for example. We recently did a job like this for a homeowner in Abington, PA.
A few things change when installing vinyl siding over stucco, however. To start, you can’t just attach vinyl siding directly to the old stucco. This would cause major problems. When installing vinyl siding, you need to keep the nails out a little bit—you can’t “send them home.” That’s why you hand nail vinyl siding as opposed to using a nail gun. It requires finesse.
Trex Deck Installation | Jenkintown, PA
Trex® decking has revolutionized porch and deck building. When it comes to home remodeling jobs, few materials are so universally better than their alternatives. Those benefits are especially useful when remodeling your front porch, as seen in a recent front porch replacement for a homeowner in Jenkintown, PA.
Made of 95% recyclable materials, Trex® eco-friendly composite decking looks better, lasts significantly longer, and eliminates all the hassles of traditional wood-built porches and decks.

Dilapidated Home Total Renovation | Abington, PA
This dilapidated home consisted of stucco, aluminum and asbestos siding along with aluminum windows and an old roof structure.
No small job. This dilapidated home needed a total home renovation. From the home’s old stucco and asbestos siding to the badly worn roof structure, we were able to completely renovate this run down old house into a quaint little home.
Vinyl Siding over Stucco | Willow Grove, PA
The homeowners on this project requested a facelift by getting rid of the old, worn stucco exterior and wood-framed windows. Installing the vinyl siding over the old stucco instead of over a wooden exterior is still a simple job. It just includes some extra labor and materials, but nothing that NexGen can’t handle.
The project turned out great! We used Heritage Cream Color Carolina Beaded style vinyl siding along with Harvey Classic vinyl, double-hung windows!
Vinyl Siding and Roof Installation | Abington, PA
This home previously consisted of asbestos siding and a three tab shingled roof. We ripped and replaced the old siding with Natural Slate Dutch Lap, installed new soffit, fascia and gutters, along with a full roof replacement!
The previous home consisted of old asbestos siding—not only a health hazard, but also an eyesore that the homeowner wanted replaced. For vinyl siding we went with CertainTeed’s Natural Slate Dutch Lap, while also capping all the windows, doors, and roofline with custom bent heavy gauge aluminum fascia.
As a part of the home renovation we also installed new CertainTeed Integrity Roofing System while also replacing the home’s old gutter system.
Vinyl Siding and Deck Installation | Glenside, PA
We’re commonly asked to replace old stucco siding with vinyl siding. While it adds a few steps to the process, installing vinyl over stucco is actually a pretty simple job. The homeowner decided on CertainTeed’s Oxford Blue Dutch Lap vinyl siding.
As part of the job we also removed and old, dilapidated deck out back. The homeowner really wanted to make use of their backyard, but wasn’t happy with the old deck. So we installed a new pressured deck with vinyl railings.
Roof Installation and Vinyl Siding | Abington, PA
As a locally-owned small business, we rely on word-of-mouth advertising. For this particular job, we actually got it from a neighbor of a former customer that loved our work. The home’s siding was in particularly bad shape. On the extension in the back the aluminum siding was dented and badly damaged. The rest of the home consisted of asbestos siding.
CertainTeed’s Natural Slate Dutch Lap, while also wrapping all the home’s windows and doors with custom-bent heavy gauge aluminum. Matching the vinyl, we installed a dark, CertainTeed Landmark architectural asphalt shingle.
As always, the homeowner was extremely happy with the job and left us glowing reviews—the best form of advertising for small businesses.
Vinyl Siding Installation | Huntingdon Valley, PA
Rather than continue to paint the old cedar wood, this homeowner wanted brand new siding to get rid of that maintenance headache. We installed the highly popular and often requested Natural Slate Dutch Lap vinyl siding, while also installing new soffit and fascia around the whole home.
Energy Efficient Home Remodel | Abington, PA
With spring a few months away, homeowners can finally start those home remodeling projects they’ve been planning throughout the winter. Now is the perfect time for one of our most requested projects—an energy efficient home remodel.
The best part of energy efficient home remodeling is that you don’t have to sacrifice build quality, or even spend a fortune on the products. Energy efficiency is the norm in the remodeling industry with the most commonly used premium materials specifically designed for it.
Complete Exterior Home Remodel | Glenside, PA
As a complete exterior home remodeling contractor, we’re capable of performing all the necessary jobs for a complete home makeover. You don’t have to worry about hiring and managing multiple contractors. We can perform all the work, make any tweaks, or fix any problems that might arise.
Not only did we perform a plethora of exterior home remodeling jobs: Roofing, Siding, Soffit & Fascia, Gutters, and Window installations, but we also did some framing like removing two old windows over the front porch overhang and reframed it for a single, double-hung window.
Energy Efficient Remodel | Glenside, PA
Winter is gone, spring is here, and summer is just around the corner. Now is a great time to think about your home’s energy efficiency. With an energy efficient remodel, you’ll save a lot of money on your home’s energy bills in the months ahead while also lowering your carbon footprint.
Unfortunately for homeowners some myths still exist surrounding energy efficient remodeling. The more prevalent being that it’s expensive. But nothing could be further than the truth.
Traditional Home Renovation | Philadelphia, PA
Not every home needs a modern design. Some of the best home remodels use classic, traditional styles. This remodeling job we performed for a homeowner in Philadelphia, PA is a perfect example.
Before we could begin installing new CertainTeed vinyl siding, we had to remove the home’s old stucco siding. Stucco, while an okay insulator and cost efficient, is a really poor design choice. We often get asked by home owners to either remove their stucco siding or simply install vinyl over the old stucco.
