Remodeling an older home comes with a unique set of challenges. The majority of 19th-century homes in the Carolinas do not conform to modern building codes or construction practices. Because of this, contractors must pay extreme attention to detail in order to preserve the home’s original historical character while bringing the properties exterior up to modern building standards.
This Newton, North Carolina historical preservation project is a prime example of the situation above.
The homeowners began their search for a quality exterior renovation company as many do. Google! They contacted Hatch Homes to set up a consultation to kick off the process. Based on our preliminary discussion about the goals that the property owners possessed for their remodel, we noticed that they were strikingly similar to a historical preservation project that was underway by our crew in Belmont, North Carolina. We met with these homeowners at the job site and took a hands-on approach to show them what their renovation project will consist of and what their home will ultimately look like.
After the property owners were able to get a better understanding of the quality they should expect, our team developed a comprehensive proposal outlining the specific details for their project.
The homeowners wanted to maintain the historical aesthetic of the property by using modern-day composite materials that are more durable and require lower maintenance than their 19th-century counterparts. James Hardie smooth horizontal lap siding was the logical choice for the property. HardiePlank’s smooth texture best emulates the milled cedar siding that was original to the building. We also incorporated several highly intricate trim components needed to match the property’s original character. After the old wood siding was removed and the underlying sheathing was inspected, our crew paved the path for new Hardie Siding by installing a new HardieWrap weather barrier to protect the structural integrity of the home’s framing.
Our team worked diligently throughout the duration of the remodel to maintain the building’s original character. The project was a smashing success, and the homeowners were thrilled with their home’s new exterior. Who says you can’t teach old dogs new tricks? This Newton, North Carolina property received the new exterior it needed to make it through the next generation.
Hatch Homes would like to thank these Newton residents for partnering with our company to breathe some fresh life into their 150-year-old home.
