This photo shows a close up of the front gable siding detail. Hardie Board & Batten is a great way to add architectural appeal without a large cost difference. The batten spacing on this home is 12"o.c. There is a frieze board installed below the overhangs as well as band trim at the bottom. These trim details create an appealing contrast to the siding color.

This is an example of the wood rot this home was experiencing. This type of visible damage is a warning sign that there could be structural damage to the home. Many people appreciate the look of wood siding, however the maintenance and long term durability can often be a huge issue for homeowners. James Hardie Siding is designed to look like real wood without these durability issues. Be sure to address visible damage to your siding quickly to prevent additional costs in the future.
This home in Chevy Chase, Maryland had existing wood siding that had extreme water damage. The homeowner realized that repairs and maintenance can be very costly and will not improve the curb appeal of the home.
The damaged areas required immediate attention. Hardiesiding was the perfect choice to maintain the look of wood siding without the maintenance. They wanted a siding contractor that was experienced with James Hardie siding. As an Elite Preferred Siding Contractor with James Hardie, they knew that Custom Concepts Construction, Inc. was the right contractor for the project. All of the existing wood siding was removed. The existing house sheathing was inspected prior to the installation of the new siding. After plywood repairs were made, we installed Hardie House Wrap to create a thermal envelope on the exterior of the home. James Hardie wall trim was then installed for the corner and window details.The window trim detail is a 4" picture frame around the perimeter of the windows. All of the trim is James Hardie Arctic White. The main siding product installed is James Hardie Lap Siding, also known as Hardieplank. The Hardieplank selected has a smooth finish with a 7" siding exposure. In the gables, the client selected to use James Hardie board & batten design as an accent. This detail added architectural appeal without a significant increase in project cost. The siding color selected for this project is James Hardie's Boothbay Blue. All of Hardie siding products are made of fiber cement which is extremely durable and very low maintenance.
The color contrast between the siding & trim really makes this home stand out in the neighborhood. The 4" window trim adds additional curb appeal. Simply adding a nice contrast in colors is a great way to make your home different. Included with our siding contractor services is a design consultation. We will help you with design options to make your siding project a success.
When looking at the front of this home you will see how all of the products blend together. Adding a siding accent is a great way to add character to your home without significant price increases. Fiber cement siding by James Hardie is the best product on the market for increasing curb appeal. Be sure to hire an Elite Preferred Hardie Siding Contractor from their website. This will ensure that work is completed properly with a 30 year warranty.
