Project Description

This cottage-style home was built in 1973. At the time, the dangerous effects of asbestos were relatively unknown and was a common material for siding and insulation. This home had asbestos shingle siding. The homeowner had to paint the siding regularly and finally decided that it was time to remove the shingle siding and replace it with something safer and more durable.

At the time our customer initially contacted us, she was thinking of replacing the shingle siding with a staggered edge James Hardie shingle in the color Cobblestone. After meeting with our project consultant she ultimately decided on horizontal plank siding in Navajo Beige with Arctic White trim.

We had to coordinate with the asbestos-removal crew so that once the dangerous material was removed we could immediately start residing the home. The timing was perfect – asbestos removal was done in the morning and our crew began work that very afternoon.

Our homeowner now has safe, low-maintenance fiber cement cement that will be virtually maintenance free.

More than just a contractor.
