This ranch home was in desperate need of new siding and windows. When the homeowners bought the house about 3 years ago they knew the house was going to need eventual repair.
They saw the house’s masonite siding progressively deteriorate rapidly over time. The sheathing below the siding needed to be replaced in some areas. The backside of the house, which received the brunt of the weather damage attributed to the rot and mold we found. Also, no clearances were noticed around the house, which attributed to the failure of the siding.
The windows also were not energy efficient and were molding in some areas. During the installation of the new JELD-WEN double hung window with new HardieTrim boards, we installed our trim using concealed fasteners, which requires less fasteners on the outside. We installed a new Hardiewrap weather barrier around the house after all the siding was removed.
They chose to install James Hardie HardiePlank lap siding and Hardieshingle siding in Boothbay Blue. We added new HardieShingle straightedge siding to the gables to add character to this 1950’s ranch home. The homeowner is proud to come home to their new home, which is now more energy efficient a great benefit during the winter months.
