HBA professionals installed a new Certainteed Grand Manor Roof System on this respected two-story Berwyn home.
Background: This charming Berwyn home possesses all the identifying features of the Cape Cod style. The one story-and-a-half cottage home has a steeped roof, attached garage, single gabled ends, window dormers, multi-paned windows and an absence of exterior ornamentation. All indicative of the traditional Cape Cod.
The Project: HBA professionals installed a new Certainteed Grand Manor Roof System on this respected two-story Berwyn home. A heavy weight, highly textured, architectural style shingle works well with the prominent exposure of a Cape Cod roof. The 7/8" thick and 18" wide Cedar Tapersawns beautify the exterior of this classic Berwyn home. The accent and durability of 16 gauge copper flashings in the valleys, ice and water shielding at the base of the roof and a ridge and soffit vents add a level of protection clients have come to expect when commissioning the ‘Hancock Difference.’
Project Challenge: In consultation with the homeowner, Hancock professionals considered the importance of the roofing material to be applied. Because the exterior of a Cape Cod style home is generally without decoration and has a steep exposed roof, the most distinctive feature of the house is the roof. Traditionally the Cape Cod roof was made of pine “shakes” and later cedar shingles. The Stetsons, with the help of HBA, chose a classic Cedar Tapersawn.
