Project Description

This Jamestown, North Carolina siding renovation started with the homeowner’s contacting Hatch Homes to learn more about the siding removal and installation process. The home still had the original Masonite siding that it was initially constructed with. The Masonite “pressboard” siding was beginning to crumble and deteriorate across the entire exterior but was especially bad on one side of the house. On this side of the home, the siding was literally falling off of the wall. This left the underlying sheathing and framing of the home exposed to rain, snow and the damaging effects of freeze-thaw cycles. This also made the home incredibly energy inefficient.

To maintain the property’s original character, it was very important to the customers that Hatch Homes incorporated the same bead at the bottom of the new siding planks. Beaded siding is a staple of the Carolina aesthetic. The majority of the homes constructed with Masonite siding have this beaded profile. To accommodate for this, James Hardie manufactures both wood grain and a smooth textured beaded siding. This siding profile of James Hardie makes for an excellent repair solution for homeowners looking to remedy rotten Masonite siding.

To maximize the return on investment for their remodeling dollar, the homeowners chose to keep their existing soffit and facia. Hatch Homes cut out any bad sections and replaced with individual pieces. Afterward, all of the soffit and facia was painted to match the new Arctic White James Hardie cement siding that was installed. Now that the project is complete, this Jamestown, North Carolina home is left with the revamped exterior that the property desperately needed.
