Age of Home

100+ Years

The classic old home located in St. Paul, Minn., had clearly seen better days. It was the epitome of an eyesore and needed an immense amount of help. One look at the before and after photos, and you won’t believe your eyes.

The previous siding looked like it would crumble if you got near it. It needed much more than a fresh paint job – the siding needed to be torn off for good. When our team stepped in to save this home, we knew we could breathe brand-new life into it.

To begin the process, we used weather-tested, durable and high-quality James Hardie home products to ensure this home never looked like the before photo ever again. The home practically sings with its fresh HardiePlank siding in the gorgeous, bold color of Deep Ocean.

We complemented the siding beautifully with fresh, sturdy trim in Navajo Beige and added stunning, unique accents of deep red gable details.

We complemented the siding beautifully with fresh, sturdy trim in Navajo Beige and added stunning, unique accents of deep red gable details.

One goal of this project was to keep the existing look of the home while upgrading to a material that wasn’t going to need constant maintenance.  James Hardie Siding fits solved this issue due to it’s durability and authentic look.

Another goal these homeowners, was to find a company for the installation that was familiar with older homes and wouldn’t be startled by the common surprises that present themselves when working on older homes.

Project Goal

After years of trying to scrape and paint the existing cedar siding, these homeowners were ready to throw away the paint brushes.  They really wanted to keep the historical look of the home however.

Design & Consultation

In this case, the design process took a couple of years.  These homeowners first met Mike Ziegler, Senior Project Consultant, to discuss the deteriorating siding.  

When Mike first me with the homeowners, they made it clear that keeping the home true to it’s historical look was a big part of the project.  Mike let them know that we love working on older homes.  After many different siding samples and designs, James Hardie Deep Ocean was selected as the body color with Navajo Beige as the accent color.

Pre-Construction Walk-Through

A big part of any siding project is the pre-construction walkthrough.  Implementing the plan that the salesman and the homeowners came up with fell to one of our siding project managers, Jeff Witt. 

During the pre-construction walkthrough a variety of subjects are discussed.  Dumpster and material placement, work schedule, tasks the homeowner needs to accomplish prior to our arrival, are among a few of the things that are covered.  

Transformation

Tearoff of the old siding was quite a task.  This is a large home that has a lot of square footage.  The old cedar siding was brittle and split and cracked as it was removed.  

Once the siding was removed, the sheathing was inspected to make sure that the sub-surface was sound for siding installation.  There were a few spots that needed to be replaced.

Working on a 100 year old house has it’s challenges.  The windows and house not being level present a unique situation.  Our expert crew worked with the existing structure to make sure that everything “looked” level although in some areas it may not be.  

The home finally has new life, and the owners are thrilled!
