Harlow’s Oil at 414 Main St. in Mound City is getting a new look as owner Phil Harlow has the exterior of the long-time business updated.
“We’re just trying to make it look nicer,” said Harlow.
Roy Wade Remodeling began work last week on the addition of metal siding on the exterior of the building.
“They put boards on the building first to have something to screw the tin to,” explained Harlow, who also noted the business is getting new doors.
“There will be two new roll-up doors going in on the front of the shop and two on the back as well as one walk-in door to the shop,” said Harlow. “The existing doors have been on this building for 25-plus years.”
“We’ve been talking about it for a long time and finally did it,” he added.
“Mostly we wanted to make the building look more uniform,” he said, explaining, “in places, such as where we had added on the shop to the original building, the block was different. This gives the whole building a nice appearance.”
After reviewing samples with the contractor, Harlow settled on a gray color for the metal siding.
“White gets so dirty so fast, where the gray will not,” he added.
