Forbes Siding & Windows
After having used us for several other projects, these homeowners contacted us when it was time to update the siding and windows on their house. They wanted to eliminate arched windows and doors and update to a more modern look with black windows and doors. Exterior trim and porch posts were wrapped in black. The siding was replaced with James Hardie board & batten and shingle siding on the front with lap siding on the remaining exterior.
The white double hung windows were replaced with ebony black casements and the arched window in the master bedroom was removed. We installed a standing seam metal shed roof where the arched window was removed. A large window in one of the bathrooms was replaced with a linear unit offering more privacy. South and west windows (on the street sides) received grills between the glass.
The front door was upgraded to a Therma-Tru Fiberglass in Onyx black with Chinchilla privacy glass on door and sidelites.
During the process some rot was found around some of the windows. But for a 25-year-old house, the damage wasn’t bad, and probably the result of poor installation practices of the time. Now the home has Marvin Ultimate windows and James Hardie siding, so it will be well protected for many years to come.

The construction process was a breeze! Having built two homes in the past and this is our 3rd renovation and first time using Willet. Was by far the easiest and best experience. The subs were professional, on-time and very thorough. I had a few finishing touches…Abby S.
Jenny did a great job of getting the design and materials correctly. The project manager would always check in to make sure things were going right. Everyone who worked on the job, from drywall to painting, to everything in between, did a great job. I would…Pat
I am over 70 years old, and I like a company like Willet Construction who dots all the i's and crosses all the t's. What I like most is that when I look at my house, it makes me smile.Doug & Laurie
They have basically rebuilt my entire house over the years. If there was anything that I wasn't satisfied with, I wouldn't have kept using them.Dave
This is the third project that Willet has done for us. They did our basement, our deck, and now our master bath! We've always been happy with their work!Kendal & Carol
Even in a pandemic year, these guys were there every step of the way. Very pleased with the look of our home!Kevin & Connie
We live in a 1927 home. When you do updates with an older home you never know what you might run into. We had an issue hiding behind the walls that did not hold the project up BECAUSE they knew what to do to fix it…Lorenz & Sandy
