Installing a New GAF Roofing System in Brookhaven
Roofs have an important job to do. They need to protect your home from snow, wind, and rain. Plus, your roof needs to look good, since it has a major impact on your home’s curb appeal. At Porter Family Contracting, we have more than 40 years of experience maintaining roofs in the area, and in those years, we’ve chosen to partner with GAF Materials Corporation. GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, and partnering with them gives us access to warranties we can pass onto our customers.
Replacing a Roof in Brookhaven
New Fiber Cement Siding in Malvern, PA
The right exterior cladding will go a long way toward improving the curb appeal of your home, and if you install fiber cement siding, you won’t need to replace it for many years. James Hardie siding is durable enough to withstand extreme cold and extreme heat without fading.
Replacing Aging Vinyl With Fiber Cement
We recently completed a project at this charming home in Malvern, PA. We removed the vinyl siding and replaced it with James Hardie 8-1/4″ Cedarmill finish in khaki brown. We also added some James Hardie shakes in khaki brown and finished it off with white James Hardie trim.
Building a Portico Roof in Norwood, PA
A portico is a small porch that is covered by a column-supported roof. This coverage comes in handy during storms, so you can keep your newspaper dry and unlock your door without getting soaked. It is an extra shield from rain and snow that threatens to sneak in through your doorway. Plus, portico roofs add a focal point to your home that increases curb appeal. The result is a completed look.
In addition to building the portico roof from scratch, we took out the old steps and retaining wall so we could add new ones. For the front of the portico roof, we were able to exactly match the siding on the rest of the home. This helped us to wrap up the roof project, along with fresh shingles and trim.
We enjoyed working on this project and are excited to share the photos below.

New Shingles and Siding in Doylestown
We enjoyed this project, installing new roofing and siding in Doylestown, PA! One of the highlights was adding new fiber cement siding by James Hardie. This type of siding is incredibly durable, often lasting a lifetime. The colors stay vibrant and the material repels moisture. That’s important because excess moisture is the main cause of mold and mildew, and it can also attract pests.

This Doylestown homeowner got several updates to their home, including new roofing and siding. We installed GAF Timberline shingles in HD Charcoal. The siding we used on the dormers is James Hardie fiber cement siding in Monterrey Taupe.
New Roofing & Siding in Newtown Square
We are excited to share these photos from a recent project at a Newtown Square home. We installed new roofing, siding, gutters, and downspouts—the results had a dramatic impact. Quality siding, shingles, and window trim create a striking appearance that looks great for years to come. If you want your home improvements to last, hiring an experienced team that knows the right way to install gutters is also crucial. Water running down the sides of your home will deteriorate the structure in no time, so you want gutters you can rely on during any rainstorm.

Exterior Remodeling in Bucks County
There is nothing that can cause damage to your home like poorly installed roofing and siding. That statement was proven true when our team was called to this home in the Northeast Philly/Bucks County area. The home needed a complete exterior renovation after the previous contractor cut corners during installation. Our team was able to remove and repair the damage before moving forward with our renovation. In addition to looking like new, we expect these homeowners will benefit from fewer repairs and better energy efficiency thanks to new windows, siding, and roofing.
New Windows, Roofing, and Siding in Bucks County, PA
This project was a full exterior renovation. We installed new Pella Proline windows with Azeck trim. Next, we installed James Hardie Cedar style Shake on the entire exterior. This choice really accentuates the bungalow style home. We found significantly damaged roof sheathing due to the previous contractor not using the proper material for such a low slope roof. In order to rectify this issue, we needed to install new plywood before installing Certainteeds 3ply low slope roof system and GAF Timberline HD shingles. We finished off the renovation with new gutters and downspouts.
