This photo shows a closer view of the Gray Slate Hardie lap siding. Be sure to hire an Elite Preferred Siding Contactor when having Hardie products installed. This is extremely important with custom details.
This house was built in 1976. The original aluminum siding was fading and coming loose. The original windows were leaking a significant amount of air. The owner knew it was time to replace the siding and windows. The owners researched many different exterior products. Hardie siding was the best option to add curb appeal to their home. Provia vinyl replacement windows were the perfect solution to the energy loss. Hardie house wrap was installed to create a thermal barrier. The replacement windows were installed and sealed to the new Hardie wrap. Hardieplankcedarmill siding was installed. The color of this home is Gray Slate. Crown headers were installed above the front windows and doors. This detail made a huge difference to the final appearance. Hardie products are an excellent way to create the look of wood without the maintenance. This customer now has a beautiful, low maintenance exterior. Custom Concepts Construction, Inc. is an Elite Preferred Siding Contractor for James Hardie Products.
Here is a closer look at the Hardie 2" roof clearance detail. Hardie requires a 2" clearance between the siding and roof. Color matched flashing is used to create a better appearance. They also require a kickout flashing to divert the water from the roof into the gutter. Failing to install this flashing will cause staining on the siding below. Many siding companies don't correctly install these details. This can void your Hardie warranty. Consult your siding contractor to see if they use the correct flashing and clearance details.
This image shows a closer view of the rear window detail. The windows are framed with 4" Hardie trim. The customer decided not to install crown headers on the rear. The Arctic White trim creates an appealing contrast to the Gray Slate Hardie Siding. The replacement windows by Provia offer customizable grids. Notice how this customer selected grids only in the top sash. Ask your window contractor what options are available before making a decision.

This image shows the opposite corner. The trim adds additional contrast to the Gray Slate siding. When choosing your siding color, be sure to test the color in the sun and the shade. Notice how the siding appears lighter when exposed to the sun. The Colorplus finish is baked on by Hardie and is resistant to fading. They offer many styles and colors to choose from. Fiber cement siding has become a popular choice in Potomac, MD.
This view shows the front corner of the Potomac, MD home. The 4" picture frame trim around the windows creates a nice contrast to the siding color. Adding crown headers is great way to add achitectural appeal. The Gray Slate siding color has become a very popular choice. The vinyl replacement windows have grids between the glass. This makes cleaning the glass fast and efficient.

This is a view from the rear corner. The Gray Slate siding contrasts well with the trim color. The best time to replace windows is when your siding is replaced. It allows the windows to be sealed to the house wrap. It also provides the best exterior finish. Hardie siding requires a 2" clearance from decking surfaces. Using color matched flashing is a great way to blend the two surfaces together. Many siding contractors don't follow this detail which can void the Hardie 30 year warranty.

This photo shows the new garage door trim. The crown header detail matches the front windows. All trim was replaced including the jambs and weatherstripping. This is great way to accent doors and windows. Not all siding companies are capable of correctly installing this much detail. In order to protect your warranty, hire Hardie siding contactors directly from their website.
