2017 Remodeling Excellence Award

Extreme Exterior Makeover

This exterior makeover in Western Springs will have you doing a double-take. Here’s the story, plus before and after photos of this transformation completed by Normandy Designer Jeremy Paris.

“It was time to step up this front porch as it was outdated and was starting to fall apart,” said Jeremy. “The homeowners wanted to make it an inviting space where they could socialize with their neighbors.”

You’ll see in the before photos that the home had a very busy design. The second floor window bays and massive stone chimney were competing for attention. Architectural details were nonexistent.

To make things more cohesive, the existing vinyl siding was replaced with a deep blue fiber cement siding and the existing front porch was completely removed and replaced.

This outdoor space is now somewhere the homeowners (and their neighbors) can enjoy for years to come. It is also special because it recently won a Remodeling Excellence award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

If this front porch has inspired you to do something great with your home, set up a time to meet with Jeremy.
