This home in Forest Lake, MN underwent a major upgrade. The sharp exterior is a combination of James Hardie lap siding, James Hardie shingle shakes, James Hardie trim and GAF Timberline roofing. The team at Craftsman’s Choice worked their magic to make their north suburban home shine.
After hail damaged this 1995-built home, the homeowner decided to turn lemons into lemonade by upgrading their exterior finishes. The decision was made to remove the damaged vinyl siding and step up to James Hardie siding. The client went with James Hardie 7-inch Cedarmill siding in Timber Bark for the body of the home. Timber Bark siding was the perfect warm neutral to beautifully complement the existing stonework on the home’s façade. James Hardie Heritage panel shakes in Heathered Moss were chosen for a soft pop of color and texture on the front gables. The corner trim is also James Hardie in Navajo Beige.
The updates on this lovely home did not end there. Hail damage also meant needing a new roof. New GAF Timberline HD shingles were installed in Weathered Wood. Additionally, new detail was installed over the garage in the form of a custom-built James Hardie decorative gable panel. The result of this Forest Lake restoration was a dramatic upgrade in durability and style.
