VALLEY FORGE, Pa., Sept. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — CertainTeed’s fourth webisode in the 2013 Living Spaces® Facebook® Home Makeover Video Contest, featuring the Bielfelt family of Mentor, Ohio, dives deep into the importance of superior weather-resistance and proper ventilation as part of a healthy whole-home system.
CertainTeed 5-Star Green and Master Shingle Applicator contractor, RJK Construction Co., of Willoughby, Ohio, installs Winterguard® and DiamondDeck™ roofing underlayment as well as CertaWrap™, CertaTape™ and CertaFlash™ housewrap products in the webisode to create a water- and wind-tight barrier to protect the century-old home’s original structure.
Grand prize winner of the $75,000 exterior makeover contest, the Bielfelts are the subject of a series of CertainTeed Living Spaces webisodes documenting the renovation of their 100-year-old home. The series follows the family, along with local contractors, from the planning stages of the renovation through its completion.
In the first few webisodes, the homeowner selected multiple products, including Cedar Impressions® and Monogram® siding, Restoration Millwork® trim, EverNew® decking and railing, Bufftech® fence and Landmark™ Pro roofing. The homeowner also utilized the CurbAppeal™ iPad app, ColorCoach™ virtual swatch book and ColorView™ design tool, which allows homeowners to visualize how products will look on their home.
