This Minnetonka James Hardie property is certainly unique in its architectural design and features, but the boring beige color and the use of vertical plank siding made this home look dated and dull and left much to be desired.
We knew this home could be instantly modernized by replacing the façade. More than that, we knew the appearance of this home made it undervalued. We knew the potential it could have. The final results seen in the “after” photo are unbelievable.
This Minnetonka James Hardie siding home is now a beacon of contemporary features; its full modern potential has been realized. We accomplished these homeowners’ remodel goals by installing a unique pattern of HardiePlank siding in the bold yet timeless color of Iron Gray. The lap pattern on this Minnetonka James Hardie project was a 4″, 4″, 7″ pattern. We also used metal color matched corners instead of trim boards on the corners. This allowed the unique lap pattern to wrap around the corner and continue down the next wall.
Another feature we added were the black Marvin windows. Black exterior windows go great with Iron Gray siding. When installing black windows, you want to make sure you have the right substrate. Vinyl windows don’t hold up too well when they are painted a dark color. These windows were fiberglass which is a great material for windows, especially in Minnesota.
The final piece of this Minnetonka James Hardie remodel, was the cedar nickel gap siding around the front door. The stark contrast of the natural cedar, sets off the Iron Gray siding.
This home went from an eyesore to a true work of art – a thing to be admired. Passersby will have a lasting impression of this home, fully believing it’s a brand-new build.
