Ty Residence


Hancock professionals installed a new medium handsplit cedar roof system, vinyl windows, new copper gutters and downspouts, skylights and Certainteed Vinyl Cedar Impression Siding to this old country farm house in Malvern, PA.

Background: When Ty purchased this old farmhouse on Valley Forge Mountain, she knew she had her work cut out for her. Old windows, a plain design and a worn out roof were just a few of the exterior problems Ty had to tackle. With time and a budget, Ty and the crews of HBA have transformed the entire property.

The Project: Hancock professionals installed an array of building products to this country farmhouse on Valley Forge Mountain in Malvern, PA transforming an older home into a neighborhood showcase.

A new medium handsplit cedar roof system with all new copper flashings, gutters and downspouts were added giving the home a classic look. New vinyl windows and wood skylights were installed adding light and warmth to the interior of the home while meshing with the home’s historic external appearance.

The chimneys, originally all stucco, were torn down and rebuilt with an elegant design of brick and mortar. Care was taken to properly flash around all chimneys, skylights and valleys on the newly shingled roof.

Though much of the home has a stucco facade, new Certainteed Vinyl Cedar Impression Siding was added to the back addition of the house. The Cedar Impression siding looks like Cedar but lasts longer.

All the products added work together to give this property a fresh, but nostalgic look.

Project Challenge: With an old country farmhouse the demands are many. The biggest challenge Tychose to face was to modernize without compromising the look and feel of his seventeenth century home.
