Re-siding a home in Minnesota can spark an exterior transformation.

You may not think so, but new home siding can look so good it makes you second-guess whether you’re pulling into the right driveway.

There’s just something about fresh James Hardie® siding and trim that turns a drab-colored, worn-out looking home into a clean, updated, bright one. It’s enough to cause a double take.

Why is James Hardie siding the perfect way to enhance your home’s exterior?

Here are a few reasons:

  • Durability: Every James Hardie siding product is engineered to help withstand damage from pests, fire and Midwest weather (such as freezing temperatures, moisture, snowfall, ice, hail, wind and extreme temperature variations).
  • Lasting color: When you invest in ColorPlus® Technology, you won’t only get gorgeous color—you’ll get color that lasts longer than a typical paint job.
  • Warranty: James Hardie is so confident in its products that it offers a 30-year non-prorated limited substrate warranty on its siding products and a 15-year non-prorated limited substrate warranty on HardieTrim® boards.

Take a peek at this before-and-after above; it may just be enough to get you looking at siding samples.

This Minneapolis home got a hefty boost in curb appeal with fresh home siding and trim and a new front porch and dormer. The Midwest home is now clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Monterey Taupe and HardieTrim boards in Arctic White.

The updated look stays true to the original details, like the porch’s natural wood beadboard ceiling and different size lap sidings.  It feels classic and polished with a pop of color.

As a full service exterior remodeler, we are able to take on any size project to turn your home into the pride of the neighborhood.

When Ben Juncker was sitting in his high school career planning class, siding installer was not on his list of potential career paths. As with most people in the construction industry, certain questionable life choices led to a point where they were wearing a tool belt, working with their hands. His path started just this way and he would not change a thing. Those early years in his business of scraping and clawing their way to profitability and stability, have helped him to build a culture of hard work and perseverance at Craftsman’s Choice. Ben started his company in 1998 and they installed their first James Hardie job in 2000. Since that time Craftsman’s Choice has become one of the nation’s top James Hardie Remodelers. They have won James Hardie’s prestigious President’s Club award every year since it’s inception in 2015.
