James Hardie Aged Pewter siding made this Edina MN home into an instant classic. As you can see from the before picture, this 1950’s era Edina home was in need of an exterior update.
Once the old cedar shakes were removed, we inspected the sheathing underneath to make sure that we were going over a sound substrate. We then wrapped the home in James Hardie’s HardieWrap to guard against moisture intrusion and stop any air infiltration.
After the wrap was installed we used the James Hardie Arctic White trim for the fascia and window trim. One of the key features on this home was the use of the maintenance free crown moulding to duplicate the original look. We then installed the Aged Pewter straight edge shakes. Instead of using trim on the corners, we used metal corners to give the shakes a mitered look.
We were able to highlight the gable of this Edina MN home by using James Hardie Aged Pewter lap siding to create a unique detail that breaks up the big surface of the gable.
The final touch was the new custom made shutters in black. These shutters are the recessed panel type.
By replacing the garage door along with the project, these homeowners were able to get a contrast to their James Hardie Aged Pewter straight edge shakes that kept with the overall look of the house.
Another key piece of this transformation was the painting of the brick. Brick holds paint fairly well if it is in good shape. This can be one area where you can save some money by painting your existing brick instead of taking it off to replace it with stone or siding.
