Before & After: Lovvve Shake
To shake up this house a little differently than last year I came up with a different color scheme starting with the roof. I selected DaVinci Roofscapes Multi-Width Slate in Weathered Green. The gray-green of the roof tiles complemented the bricks and set the direction for the trim colors.
Removing the wrought iron and replacing the door immediately opened up the entry. I chose a Therma-Tru Classic-Craft American Style Collection fiberglass entry door stained in cedar with sidelites with Hazelton decorative glass.
Then off with the shutters. I wanted to simplify the look and return it to more of its original look. Vinyl replacement windows with Chocolate frames and Fypon urethane timber square pot shelves beneath each lower level window added character.
Fypon urethane brackets above the door and near the dormer window added another arts-and-crafts accent to the home. The brackets and downspouts were painted a dark reddish brown to blend in with the brick.
The columns on the front and side porch were brought back to life with Fypon’s popular column wraps. All of the trim was painted in Misted Green. The darker accent color used on the gables was Carolina Gull.
The privacy lattice on the side porch was replaced with a grid stained to match the front door. This made it look more like an architecture element than a quick fix.
Add a pretty slate walkway and these homeowners can…

Good enough for anyone
