Aging 90s Home Gets an Update

Homeowner Scott Truhn fell in love with the location of his Southwest Michigan home built in the countryside of Scotts. The home was built in the 90s but recently started to show its age. So, the homeowner decided to make some upgrades to it.

Scott shared that he’s retired and liked the location of his home. He enjoys the space and doesn’t have any plans to move. His wife agreed and suggested starting with the windows and exterior doors. Scott decided if they were going to do these home improvement upgrades then it was time to change the color of the siding as well. “This is when we called BlackBerry Systems in Kalamazoo. They can do it all. One stop and done!” he said.

BlackBerry stepped in and helped the home go from a conservative ’90s style to a sleek, modern home of the 21st century. Upgrading the home’s siding from a neutral beige to Alside Charter Oak in Cast Iron with soft black accents and trim. Scott shared that this color scheme was very out of character for him, and he wasn’t sure he would have the guts to go through with the project. But knew he wanted his home to stand out and not look like the rest of the homes on the street. The BlackBerry team was able to help him visualize it and he absolutely loves the outcome!

“My home pops now! No other house in the neighborhood looks like ours.

The team also replaced a patio slider and a few windows too. ProVid Endure vinyl products enhanced the updated look as well as saved the homeowner money with the improved energy efficiency of the slider.

Scott shared he heard of BlackBerry’s reputation of being a perfectionist and a quality of craftsmanship. The experience lived up to those expectations! The team answered all his questions, with great customer service and follow-up.

When asking Scott what his next home improvement project would be he replied, “The deck is original so a new deck to match the new accents. I’m not even going to shop around. I’ll be calling BlackBerry to come back out. You can go cheaper but you won’t get the BlackBerry craftsmanship and quality.”
