The homeowners originally had Masonite siding installed on their home. However Masonite/composite siding does not withstand the climate of the Northeast.
You can see around the house where water destroyed the siding especially along the roofline and along the water table. The original siding is installed right onto the roofline, which allowed snow and ice to deteriorate the siding. Masonite siding rots when it gets wet especially if some of the siding needs to be re-nailed at some point. Also, the windows were not properly flashed above the window which degraded the plywood underneath.
Homescapes of New England, LLC installed new HardiePlank lap siding in Monterey Taupe with Arctic White Hardiesoffits. In the garage area we removed the siding that went in between the garage doors with PVC Trim and squared off the sides giving it a cleaner modern finish. We also cut in two new lights above the garage doors. We also included new seamless aluminum gutters and Atlantic Premium Shutters, which added a finishing touch to this beautiful home. This is a home that will last for many years to come without needing additional exterior maintenance.
