Poppleton Park, Birmingham, MI Exterior Makeover

The existing sparse exterior of this Cape Cod home left much to be desired.  The red brick, brown siding and dark front entry gave it a dreary look in need of a total makeover.  MainStreet owner and lead designer, Steve Ramaekers, had a vision from the moment he first saw the home.  

New Marvin true divided light windows in a stone finish were just the beginning.  A complete change from the old cedar siding to a James Hardie cement siding “smooth side out” with 7″ reveal and real machine split Western Red Cedar Shake shingle siding with 7″ reveal started to make the home take shape.  

The new carriage style garage doors with beautiful lantern style lights on either side, provide a focal point and is now a main feature for a passerby.  New Board-N-Batten Style Shutters along with 6″ 20.44 oz half round copper gutters , 4″ round seamless copper downspouts and fittings gave the home the finishing touch.  All new exterior colors took the home from drab and bland to it’s new look with a warm inviting feel and great curb appeal!
