There comes a time when every home could use a facelift. This is not just necessary for cosmetic reasons, but old siding or a worn roof can also allow in too much moisture creating a serious structural problem. When working with the right contractors, both jobs can be completed at once saving you both time and money.
At Porter Family Contracting, we partner with several leading manufacturers like GAF and James Hardie to provide our clients the best products and warranties possible.
Roofing & Siding Replacement
This Prospect Park home was very dated by the color and style of its shingles. There were also areas where the roofing and siding was coming apart, signs this homeowner was lucky to have caught early. The updates brought to life the home’s architecture and protected the house from leaks and energy losses.
When a storm causes damage to your property, it needs to be repaired quickly. In many cases, this is also an opportune time to complete any other home remodeling jobs you’ve been putting off. Completing multiple projects at once saves you time spent living in a construction zone as well as the money you would have spent having several crews come out to your home at different times. This is the advantage to working with a contracting company that offers a wide range of renovation services.
Repaired Garage, New Roof, New Siding, and More at this Delaware County Home
After a fallen tree tore the entire front wall of this garage, the homeowners gave us a call to repair the damage. However, the project quickly transformed into a full exterior renovation. In addition to rebuilding the garage, the Porter team installed a brand new GAF charcoal roof, new Pella windows, and beautiful french doors on the deck in the rear of the home. Not only that, but we installed new Azeck trim around all windows and doors as well as new James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding in Ocean Blue. We finished off the project with new gutters and downspouts.

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.
There is a reason that James Hardie is a household name when it comes to siding. These are high quality materials providing a lifetime value and some of the most durable products in the industry. Because we care about providing great value to our clients, Porter Family Contracting is a member of the James Hardie Contractor Alliance™ Program.

Roofing and Siding in Wayne
This homeowner in Wayne called us for new roofing and siding. With this and all roofing projects, our team began by protecting all hardscape and landscape outside of the home. We covered driveways, walkways, and the plants seen in the photos below before bringing in our equipment and getting to work. Please browse these images to the see the quality of our work.
We were called in because the client was trying to sell their home and could not due to damage behind the stucco. She had an inspection done to test for moisture levels behind the stucco, and the average levels were too high.
We removed all the stucco, then started working on removing any damaged plywood sheathing. Then began to work on the structural repairs. The damage was so bad in some areas that we were surprised certain areas of the house were still standing upright. Once that was done, and we were sure that any possible mold issues were taken care of, we moved on to the windows. We removed each window and door in the stucco area and installed proper sill flashing. A lot of the problems came from the windows not being flashed properly in the first place. We refer to this process as pulling and panning a window. Next, we moved on to installing the housewrap.
Housewrap & Cladding in Garnet Valley, PA
This procedure is what protects the home from water infiltration and, in our opinion, is the most important part of the entire process. We select which housewrap is the best fit for the project. If we are going back with siding, it’s typically a hydrogap or hardiewrap system. We install flashing tape on all wall penetrations windows, doors, pipes, hose bibs, step flashing everything. On windows, we install a drip cap that gets flashing taped installed directly to the wood. Then we install the housewrap, making sure that we always have a positive lap. That means that if water somehow makes its way in at the top, it can travel to the bottom of the wall on the outside of the paper without entering the home.
After that is done, we start on the home’s cladding. Mostly we prefer to install James Hardie siding products and PVC trim products. The trim goes around windows and doors. Then ,the siding is installed per the manufacturer’s requirement. We clean everything up and leave the home looking more beautiful than when we got there. You can see photos of the project below.
