Manufactured stone siding (above)

Unlike cheap vinyl versions, Heritage Stone Siding by Provia is made from real stone. Each manufactured stone is carefully selected from unique geographic regions and then skillfully molded and cast. The result is an exquisite stone veneer that mimics the texture and color of natural stone. The colors permeate throughout the entire stone, giving each and every manufactured stone a realistic look with hues that last for years on your home’s exterior.

Heritage Stone features a wide array of styles and colors including 9 varieties of Limestone, 6 varieties of fieldstone and over 11 types of stacked stone. With a lifetime material warranty as well as a lifetime labor warranty, manufactured stone siding is perfect for giving your front facade an upgrade, adding accents to a front entryway, protecting your home’s foundation or installation on your home’s chimney.

Metal slate roofing

Have you always wanted the look and longevity of REAL slate for your home but didn’t want to spend the exorbitant amount of money to have it done? Now there is an option that gives you all the benefits of real slate for less! Metal slate roofing is a lifetime roofing product with the luxurious look of real slate. Metal slate roofing by Global Home Improvement turns your boring asphalt roof into a dynamic and aesthetically pleasing focal point for your home. The problem with asphalt roofs these days is that they stain, discolor and attract moss causing early roof failure and taking away from the beauty of your home. Metal slates are designed to last a lifetime, with no maintenance and an appearance warranty that ensures your investment will look beautiful for years to come.

  • Metal slate roofing products have received the highest possible hail rating, and use a unique four-way interlocking system that withstands winds of up to 160mph. To put that in context, winds during Hurricane Sandy reached 75-95mph as a category 1 hurricane.
  • Metal slate roofing carries a lifetime, non–prorated limited warranty that is fully transferable with the sale of the home.
  • Metal roofing is a green product! They come in a variety of Energy Star Rated colors and are fully recyclable at the end of its very long lifespan. Every year over 1.3 billion pounds of petroleum based asphalt roofing ends up in landfills.

Marvin fiberglass windows

Infinity fiberglass windows by Marvin are the perfect way to add both elegance and energy efficiency to your home. As the world’s leading wood window manufacturer, Marvin has been producing premium quality windows for custom homes and discerning homeowners for over 100 years. Over the last 20 years, they have also led the way when it comes to composite windows.

Marvin’s Ultrex Fiberglass windows are 8 times stronger than vinyl, and, unlike wood windows, they're non-porous so they resist rot and moisture allowing for a lifetime of maintenance free performance. The fiberglass window frame is ideal for replacement windows because its strength allows for a thinner frame giving you industry best glass viewing space.

In addition, fiberglass is designed to expand and contract at virtually the same rate as glass, giving it the lowest seal failure rate of any window on the market. With a limited lifetime warranty, this window outperforms the big name competition at a price that's better too. Visit to renew your confidence in what a replacement window should be!
