Contest Winner Uses Color to Shake Up Home Exterior

Just look how color and dedication can transform a home!

Shake it Up Contest Winner

Rachel Delgado, winner of the 2015 Shake it Up Exterior Color Contest sponsored by DaVinci Roofscapes (see Virginia Homeowner Wins $2,500 in National DaVinci Roofscapes “Shake it Up” Exterior Color Contest) has already put her winnings to good use. She invested her $2,500 cash grand prize from the contest to change the exterior of her home.

In her entry, Delgado said she has always dreamed of having her home painted a bright barn red. Now she's made her dream come true!

"It's done (for now)!" says Delgado. "We hope to top it off with a new roof next year, but we've already shaken it up with color. It really came a long way and we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you so much!"

When she's ready to add her new roof, DaVinci will be here to help. Kate Smith, chief color maven with Sensational Color and a judge in the contest, suggested that Delgado use a Tahoe blend polymer shake DaVinci roof to complement her chosen barn red exterior.

"I want to shake up my home by going with an urban farm/rustic chic theme," says Delgado. "Our first priority was to purchase the red paint color recommended as part of the artist rendering to help transform the home exterior. After that we focused on the new porch. Finally, the wish list will be complete in a few years when we can top off our 'new' home with the recommended DaVinci roof!"
