This house was built in 1984. The original aluminum siding was fading and coming loose. The owner knew it was time to replace the siding. The owner researched many different exterior products. Hardie siding was the best option to add curb appeal to their home. Hardie house wrap was installed to create a thermal barrier. Hardieplankcedarmill siding was installed. The color of this home is Gray Slate. Crown headers were installed above the 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.

This view shows the front corner of the Reston, VA 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. An 8" band trim was installed where the siding connects to the foundation. The Gray Slate siding color has become a very popular choice. The foundation ws painted Arctic White to match the trim color.
This is a view from the rear corner. The Gray Slate siding blends well with the roofing color. Additional band trim was added at the bottom of the 2nd floor bumpout. Hardie siding requires a 2" clearance from roofing 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.
Here is a closer look at the Hardie light block detail. Hardie requires a mounting block with proper flashing. This means all light fixtures need to be removed and reinstalled. Most customers purchase new light fixtures to be installed when the siding is replaced. Many siding companies use vinyl siding light blocks. This can void your Hardie warranty. Consult your siding contractor to see if they use the correct light block detail.
This photo shows the new garage door trim. 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. Be sure to hire Hardie siding contactors directly from their website.

They exceeded our expectations and we've received many compliments from our neighbors. We love the work that was done!
This image shows a closer view of the window detail. The windows are framed with 4" Hardie trim. A 3.25" crown molding header was installed at the top to create depth. The Arctic White trim creates an appealing contrast to the Gray Slate Hardie Siding. Shingle mold was installed below the roofing for additional detail. These small details can make a huge difference in overall curb appeal. Ask your siding contactor what details will make your house stand out.
