“I am honored a national television network chose Kelly Roofing for their roofing needs on this one-of-a-kind home,” said Kelly Roofing President Ken Kelly. “This was an opportunity to work with the best designers, builders, and engineers showing homeowners how easy it is to create a modern smart home while keeping the home warm, cozy, and inviting.”
The latest products and building techniques were used throughout the project. The HGTV® Smart Home 2021 home celebrates Naples, Fla., using a timeless, sophisticated design paired with a coastal style. The color palette includes an updated 1960s flair of lime green, tones of cool blue, white, and black. Even the inviting backyard has space for relaxing, entertaining, and dining with all the latest smart technology.
Kelly Roofing, the RC 2019 Residential Contractor of the Year, participated by installing the concrete tile roofing and 14 skylights. These Velux “Fresh Air” Skylights bring natural light and air into the home and are brand new to the market. At the first sign of rain, a sensor automatically closes any opened skylights to keep water and worries out. The remote control operation of the blinds can control the amount of shade with the touch of a button. These skylights highlight how to create an innovative and smart home of the future.
Even the roof was installed with the latest technology, including Kelly Roofing’s patented hybrid tile installation method. The installation combined with the materials used provides insulation (for lowering energy bills), secondary waterproofing (for lowering homeowner’s insurance costs), and increased wind uplift (for hurricane protection).
Most of the Kelly crew did not know at the time of building this home would be part of the HGTV Smart Home Sweepstakes. Due to the exclusivity, the team dubbed it “The Top Secret Project” before they knew what they were working on. They are now excited to see who will win the house they helped build.
The episode showcasing this project build is airing now on HGTV. This Smart Home is also part of the price in the national HGTV Smart Home Sweepstakes. Other prizes include a 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet and $100,000 from LendingTree.
