Old Fashioned Tin Knocker Roof Yardley, Pa
A fantastic accompaniment to an historic siding restoration project:  “Tin-Knocker” hand fashioned, hand formed, standing seam “Tin Roof," Yardley, Pa.
See the Photos and Read about the American history of Iron Sheet Roofing.
The oldest part of this home dates back to 1703.  An addition was added in the late 1700's.  Located in Skillman, NJ, near Princeton, Blawenburg, and Hopewell, on the olde main drag, it could have a story to tell.  We installed stone veneer to the foundation, James Hardie Siding, Real Wood Shutters, and custom trim finishing.   Some History of Iron & Steel Sheet Roofing Raw sheet iron is first known to have been manufactured in North America by  Robert Morris, who had a rolling mill near Trenton, New Jersey.  Morris is more notably known as a Revolutionary War financier....

 

Hardiplank / Weatherboards / Nichiha Fiber Cement Siding also known as 'hardieplank' 'hardie plank' 'hardyplank'(Sometimes referred to as 'FiberCement' 'hardiplank''hardie plank' 'hardy board' - etc.)   When considering the finest siding materials on the planet, please make very certain that you engage the services of an experienced Fiber Cement Siding Installation Contractor. Remember that a Home Improvement Contractor that is credentialed in Siding & Roofing Installations such as Asphalt, Wood and Vinyl, does not necessarily possess the attributes and the experience that is vitally mandatory to successfully install specialty products like Fiber Cement Siding, high end Roofing on Restoration Projects, and specialty work that requires keen attentiveness to details, and experience.

Folk Victorian Era: Usually near the old railroad tracks in the old towns across the northeast, one can find the old farmhouses that were dressed with the Victorian artistry of the opulence of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  It was when the railroad afforded folks an easy ride to big city and a good look at the Victorian era architecture.  These travelers would return and carry out a building project with the simplicity of a farmhouse....

Wonderful old Folk Victorian Still possessing all of its original charm and unique details, this wonderful expression of architecture was brightened, polished, and made energy efficient without losing any of its originality and splendor. The Plaster of Paris Greek / Ionic style Capitols were reportedly added years ago by a prior owner. It is unclear as to style the orignal Capitols or Column Heads. Also featured below..
 

 

 

 

 

 
About a days ride on horseback from Whitehouse, or you could have taken the train, you will find another Folk Victorian in the town of Hampton, NJ with a new slate roof…… and a neat story to boot. This is a true "Labor of Love" Story.
 
     
 
Garage Built to match house
 
 
The Garage on the property was a mid-twentieth century detatched structure, but it was improperly constructed and was ready to collapse. We demolished the original structure and created a "Folk Victorian" Garage.
 
 
 

This charming Folk Victorian had Asbestos Reinforced Cement Shingle Siding from the cover-all days of the mid-20th century.  Under the shingles was the original wood siding that covered empty walls.  Like the Whitehouse Station home, we removed the siding and installed batt and rigid insulation, with solid sheathing on the walls.  A Beaded Cedarmill James Hardie Siding was then installed.  The Period Cornice of Old Growth Wood was retained and re-finished.  A new Roof was installed and a Garage was torn down and rebuilt.

Original blueprints were made available by Church staff.  A plan was devised including custom sized Andersen Flexiframe Windows.  Sills were to be rebuilt straight with an outward slope to provide a true watershed away from the openings of the windows.  Project has been in service for years.  Leaks are no longer a problem.

East Norriton Pa near Norristown Pa  Fiber Cement replaces  prematurely  rotting cedar siding

East Norriton, Pa. - Hardiplank Siding - AZEK prefinished Trim - Total replication of original exterior.

This Contemporary Home's Cedar Clapboard exterior was literally rotting away. At 17 years young, this home was looking ragged. Cedar was not an option because today's hybrid, fast growing, immature woods don't hold the natural oils they once did. They decay rapidly and they are expensive. Hardiplank by James Hardie was the answer with a 25 year warranted coating and a 50 year product warranty from James Hardie.
