Project Summary

Having had their roof replaced by Bak Brothers, Inc. in 2015, the Milkens family wanted to take the next step and completely revamp their exterior façade. Their colonial had existing vertical siding which required maintenance and was a feeding ground for wood peckers. Knowing that they wanted to go with Hardie Plank, the only remaining obstacle was the brick color. In a joint venture with a brick staining company, Bak Brothers helped Dan and Lesley find the ideal color and completely transform the home’s exterior. The finishing touch was a gorgeous new garage overhead door to drastically improve the curb appeal. 

“Bak Brothers replaced our roof several years ago and so when it came time to replace our siding there was no question which company we would hire. The entire Bak Brothers team is top notch and really knows how to deliver an excellent customer experience from start to finish. They are all extremely personable, consultative, knowledgeable and most importantly they do quality work. We are thrilled with the results of our siding and gutters project as well as our new garage door and service door — our house looks great. I highly recommend Bak Brothers.” Dan & Lesley Milkens
