Excelsior Minnesota James Hardie Shingle Siding Gray Slate Shakes

Before After

James Hardie Gray SlateSearching for James Hardie Gray Slate?  This project in Excelsior Minnesota upgraded their tired cedar shake siding to James Hardie staggered shakes.  They were able to retain the overall design of their home but solve a lot of the maintenance issues inherent with wood siding.

Nestled on the shores of Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota, Excelsior is a quaint and cozy lake town just a short drive from the heart of the Twin Cities. Known for its stunning homes and brilliant architecture – as well as its proximity to the popular lake – this town boasts unique craftsman homes and bustles in Minnesota summers. The homeowners were unsatisfied with the current dilapidated façade of the home.

We stepped in with our durable and quality James Hardie siding products by installing shakes in the color Gray Slate throughout the entirety of this Minnesota exterior remodeling project. This home truly shines due to its crisp Arctic White trim reminiscent of Cape Cod-style architecture, along with unique and custom gable details. Passersby this home are sure not to miss the eye-catching features at every corner and surface of this home.

One of the best features of James Hardie siding is the ability to be incredibly diverse in your design.  It lends itself well to almost any style of home.

These old cedar shakes that were on the home, had lost the ability to retain the stain that was applied each year.  The homeowners hated them but the woodpeckers loved them!  Cedar is especially vulnerable to woodpecker damage as it ages and becomes more brittle.  Now immune to Minnesota weather, the property’s exterior will hold strong to snow, wind and rain thanks to the James Hardie products throughout.
