Excelsior MN James Hardie Arctic White Siding with Board and Batten

Before After

James Hardie Arctic White

This renovation story in Excelsior, MN had a charming ending. The elements of this tale included James Hardie lap siding, James Hardie board and batten siding, James Hardie trim and a new portico. The experts at Craftsman’s Choice delivered the storybook ending.

This renovation began with the removal of the dated cedar siding. James Hardie lap siding in Arctic White was installed on the body of the home. The crispness of Arctic White instantly brightened up the exterior. James Hardie board and batten siding in Arctic White was installed on the gable ends to add interest and a sense of height. James Hardie trim in Arctic white completes the crisp and clean new exterior.

Perhaps the most charming aspect of this renovation tale was the addition of a new portico entry. The gabled portico adds dimension and height to the façade of the home.  From a practical standpoint, the portico offers shelter from the elements at the front entrance. The soffit was finished in cedar v-groove for a sense of warmth and charm. The soffit also coordinates beautifully with the wood tone on the new Therma Tru front door. The portico addition was a cost-efficient way to add both style and function to the entry of the home. This Excelsior charmer received a storybook ending thanks to the Craftsman’s Choice team.
