While the differences may appear subtle in this Minneapolis exterior remodeling project, the before and after photos are a classic example of the extreme change updated exterior touches can make.
In the before photo, you’ll notice siding in need of quite a bit of maintenance, along with trim that has clearly seen better days. In the after photo, you’ll notice what a complete transformation we were able to make – even though the overall color of the home remained relatively the same. Sometimes you love the way your house looks, you are just tired of the maintenance and hassle of wood siding. This is where James Hardie siding excels. Their product line is so diverse that you can do almost anything with their products that you can do in wood, including siding, trim, soffit, fascia, board and batten, shakes, etc.
By replacing the siding with our ever-trusted James HardiePlank in the color Arctic White, you can see an immediate modernization which gives this home an entirely more classic and elevated feel. In addition, we replaced the trim – in the color Arctic White – which will now be nearly maintenance free for these Minneapolis homeowners. The window trim was a big part of this Minneapolis exterior remodeling project. At some point, someone had covered up the old wood trim with aluminum wraps. Over time, this aluminum had become chalky, dented, and faded. We removed the wraps and installed James Hardie 6″ trim on the sides and top with crown moulding on the top of the window. This is the trim that was original to the house when it was built, just with products that will last a lot longer without the maintenance.
Finally, our team of James Hardie siding experts replaced the outdated shutters with our Hardie shutters to ensure this home has passersby stopping and staring for decades.
