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.

The owner wanted to feature the front door with a bright color. The color chosen is Vallis Red by Provia. The bronze hardware blends well with the shutter color. This home now stands out in the neighborhood!

Here you see an image from the front of the home. Notice how the Gray Slate siding color looks brighter in the sun? Be sure to ask your siding contractor for color samples prior to placing an order. Place them on different sides of your home to see how the color appears on your property.
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.

They exceeded our expectations and we've received many compliments from our neighbors. We love the work that was done!
