Stone Oak Siding and Window Makeover
About the Project
There are many older homes in the Stone Oak area that were built with compressed fiberboard siding. While this type of siding starts out looking just like wood, over time it starts to wear down. If the siding soaks up water it turns into a giant sponge and looks terrible.
This project was no exception. Over time the lap siding started to swell on the edges and rot due to water. We replaced all of the old lap siding with James Hardie and painted all of the new and existing trim.
What really makes this project stand out in addition to the new siding are the new windows as well. The old windows were single pane bronze aluminum windows. The dark old frames washed the house out and were in dire need of an upgrade.
The windows were replaced with white vinyl replacement windows. The new windows helped to update the look of the house and provide additional energy efficiency for the home.
Finally, the icing on the cake was the front door. A bold punch of color really brought the new look together . Originally the homeowner was hesitant to go bold, but decided to take the chance. We think she made a good choice.
The overall end result is a brand new house that will be maintenance free and improved energy efficiency for the owners.
