Project Description

This mountain home is co-owned and rented out year round. It has the very typical mountain color combination of red and green for homes built during the time. These owners wanted to update the exterior with a durable and low-maintenance siding to make it more attractive to renters and protect the home for the long run.

The customers used our Home Visualizer tool to land on a design that they were happy with. James Hardie fiber cement siding is a go-to for durability and low-maintenance. They chose the classic horizontal lap in Evening Blue with Arctic White trim. They opted to match the foundation to the siding color.

It’s not unusual for us to find sheathing a framing rot under existing siding once we start the demo on houses in the woods. This house needed some expected wood remediation and then the siding went on without delay. This mountain home is now a renter’s paradise!
