Beware of Moisture!!  Although these Shoreview homeowners just wanted to replace their windows, they ended up with a much bigger project.  While replacing the existing windows with Pella windows, a considerable amount of water intrusion was discovered.  To remedy the situation properly, we needed to remove a lot of the cedar siding and the homeowners felt that it would make more sense to move forward with a permanent solution.  We installed the James Hardie Straight Edge shakes in Khaki Brown with the James Hardie 7” Cedarmill Lap Siding in Timberbark.  James Hardie trim was used for all corners and window trim as well.  By incorporating the window, Housewrap, and siding installation, we are able to make sure that water is directed away from the structure and prevent future issues.   These Shoreview homeowners can now sleep easy knowing that the water is staying outside!
