Indianapolis Family Receives a Patio Makeover From Simonton and This Old House

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - November 20, 2015) - Simonton Windows & Doors, a nationwide provider of vinyl windows and patio doors, in partnership with This Old House, an Emmy-winning home improvement series and brand, completed a patio makeover for a local Indianapolis homeowner who won the Party on the Patio contest. The homeowner, Courtney Jennings, received a $10,000 patio makeover and a new Simonton Inovo patio door.

The contest asked participants to submit a photo of their existing patio and how they would use the $10,000 to improve their outdoor living space. With over 4,500 entries, homeowners nationwide sent snapshots of their patios in need. However, Jennings' photo of her aged deck and door made her the clear choice for the patio makeover.

"When we saw Courtney's outdoor living space, we knew we would be able to help her create the patio of her dreams," said Heather Schreiber, senior manager of communications and digital marketing for Simonton. "At Simonton, we pride ourselves on transforming people's homes. Unlike many improvement projects, windows and patio doors create a beautiful look for the inside and outside of your home, which means Courtney will be able to enjoy a beautiful view in the winter when she's in her kitchen looking outside, and in the summer, she'll be able to host amazing gatherings on her brand new patio!"

Jennings learned she was the contest winner in October and the process of transforming her patio was quickly underway.

"I didn't believe it at first! It didn't seem real until I met everyone at my house," Jennings said. "We are doing so much to our fixer-upper, I thought it would be nice to have something done fast and by someone else. All the contacts and contractors were so wonderful to work with and really wanted to make sure we got what we wanted."

Indianapolis area contractors, G & C Ramsey Construction Inc., were chosen to complete the patio makeover which included installing the new Inovo patio door, re-building the deck and creating a pergola for Jennings' outdoor space.

In addition to winning a patio makeover, Jennings received $1,000 to throw a party on her newly transformed patio.

"I'm excited to have a safe and gorgeous deck to share with friends and family, and shade so we can use it during the day. We can now have a party with plenty of room for my husband to grill and friends to hang out nearby," Jennings said. "During the warmer months, my husband and I relax after work on the deck daily. And now with the added space, I'm sure we'll have more gatherings."

The media event is Wednesday, Nov. 25 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. at Jennings' home, 8401 Acton Road, Indianapolis, IN.

The complete patio makeover will be featured on ThisOldHouse.com beginning in December.
