Customer had a serious problem with severe ice buildup above garage next to house west wall and due to short extended overhang, ice was going up the roof along the edges above garage, creating many leaks along perimeter if the garage and house/garage wall. Water drops traveled across beams popping up as water stains across entire 1st floor living area creating a lot of damage to the interior of the house.
After a very careful review that took several days and consultation with structural engineer from the Village of Vernon Hills, Michon Exteriors field-engineered solution that worked and still working many years later.
Water penetration fixed, our focus turned to aesthetical view of the front elevation. Judge for yourself how a combination of Charter Oak Energy Elite, in Clap profile and extra-long siding panels (less seams) in Colonial Ivory color siding panels and Architectural Shakes in same color worked. Customer selected same color of siding and shakes to show a different shape and texture of a gable above the garage door vs. going with a different or color or just a siding.
Customer-selected family-friend mason contractor installed front elevation stone, and Michon carpenters prepared the walls and installed a very important element of the substructure: flashing to prevent water penetration from the connection points between stony and siding. Michon also installed custom, beveled, overlap window trim.
