James Hardie Aged Pewter Shake were used to complete this project. The before and after photos on this much-needed home siding upgrade are almost impossible to believe. With the previous muted tones of browns, tans and grays, the homeowner wanted to step up the appearance of this home in a not-so-subtle way, and we made their vision come to life. This Blaine home was transformed from dull and muted to fresh and eye-catching with trusted and Minnesota weather-tested HardiePlank Siding in Aged Pewter for an instant upgrade in curb appeal and a nod to a more classic style commonly seen in new homes today.
As the top-rated siding contractors in Minneapolis, our installation team completed this fun project with finishing touches of Aged Pewter shake and a pop of crisp trim in the color Cobblestone as well for a stunning, welcoming and timeless look. Working with the existing cultured stone enabled the homeowners to save some money and put it towards other parts of the project.
On the back and sides of the home, we removed the existing vinyl siding that was damaged due to a recent hailstorm. The old plastic siding was also faded and worn so it was time for an upgrade anyway. After a few years, vinyl siding just doesn’t hold up to our Minnesota climate. In the summer the sun beats down on it and makes it fade. Once this so called “maintenance free” material is faded, there is nothing you can do to bring back it’s original color. So you need to live with faded plastic siding, or remove and replace it.
Finally, this home’s existing landscaping and beautiful structure can shine with its façade-lift, giving it a complete look that will last this homeowner for years. Aged Pewter shakes are one of our more popular products and this finished project shows why. Check out our other Aged Pewter projects here.
