And the winner is ... Rachel Delgado of Hampton, Virginia!
With almost 600 votes cast in the DaVinci Roofscapes 2015 “Shake it Up” Exterior Color Contest, Rachel and her husband Danny have won the $2,500 cash grand prize!
"I want to shake up my home by going with an urban farm/rustic chic theme," says Delgado. "Our first priority is to purchase the red paint color recommended as part of the artist rendering to help transform the home exterior. After that we'll focus on the new porch and a new entry door. Finally, the wish list will be complete in a few years when we can top off our 'new' home with the recommended DaVinci composite shake roof!"
According to Wendy Bruch, marketing manager with DaVinci Roofscapes, the sponsor of the contest, the judges saw the potential for dramatic change using color and new products on the Delgado home exterior. “As a finalist, this home was evaluated by radio show co-host Allen Lyle with Today's Homeowner with Danny Lipford and national color expert Kate Smith with Sensational Color," says Bruch. "Kate worked to create an artist’s rendering of what the Delgado home would look like transformed with colorful new products.
"She specified a new Tahoe blend synthetic shake roof from DaVinci along with a Therma-Tru Classic-Craft Canvas Collection fiberglass door painted in a trendy gray tone. As a final touch she recommended the addition of a new low-maintenance balustrade system from Fypon to create the porch space the Delgados desire."
The voting public saw the potential in adding 'top down' color to the Delgado home that will increase the overall curb appeal of the house and make it a stand-out in its neighborhood. For the 2015 contest, the Delgado home rose above more than 180 entries to capture the grand prize.
