Tennessee Homeowners Win “Shake it Up” Exterior Color Contest

Dennis and Pat Hodkinson, of Paris, Tenn., have won the $5,000 cash grand prize in the nationwide DaVinci Roofscapes “Shake it Up” Exterior Color Contest. The Hodkinsons were named the contest winner after receiving more public votes than four other finalists out of 757 online votes cast. They can now use the cash prize to help add color to the exterior of their home.

“We’re stunned and excited about winning this national contest,” says Dennis Hodkinson, who has owned the home for eight years. “The rendering of our house with new and colorful products makes us see the house in an entirely different light. We hope to be able to use the $5,000 to make home improvement changes along with adding some of the suggested colors to our home!”

Hodkinson submitted his contest entry under the title of “Facelift Needed!” He explained how the 100+ year-old home’s black-and-white exterior made the house look like an “old maid” rather than one of the “grand old ladies” of the neighborhood.
