There’s something special to be said for a home that continues to stay in the same family decade after decade. Multiple generations share meals, laughter and memories within the same space, creating a cherished legacy. When our client, Nicci, first reached out to our company, she had recently purchased the home her father had built in the 1970’s and it would now be the place she would raise her family. Her top priorities were siding and window replacement, with the goal of creating a more aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient exterior. Here’s how our team was able to assist in this dramatic exterior transformation.
Siding: When we first visited Nicci’s home, we took note that it still had the original rough sawn cedar siding. We appreciated the rustic look the markings on the wood provided, but also knew that it needed replacement due to rot, swelling, and warping in some areas. These components were all compromising the material’s ability to properly insulate the home and were detracting from the property’s curb appeal.
Nicci was interested in selecting a maintenance-free siding material that imitated the look of the home’s cedar siding. TruCedar® steel siding proved to be a superb choice. Manufactured to imitate the look of wood, it has a steel core that is warrantied never to crack, melt, wick water, peel, chalk, or fade like lesser siding materials.
In order to review potential siding colors, our team created several 3D digital renderings of the home to consider. Ultimately, a 4” lap in Ironstone was selected because it carried out the look of the home’s original one and played well with the home’ s architecture.
Windows: Replacing windows and siding in tandem offers savings in the way of labor costs and provides a better overall outcome because the caulking and sealing of window openings, trim, and siding joints will only occur once. In Nicci’s case, several of the home’s windows had reached the end of their lifespan and were energy inefficient. Looking for a long-term solution she opted for SeasonGuard window installation in several rooms of her home including the master bathroom, basement, kitchen, and a few bedrooms. Exclusive to Lindus Construction SeasonGuard triple pane windows can be customized with a variety of colors, finishes and hardware options. With winter on the horizon, SeasonGuard’s energy efficient properties will make significant progress in lowering Nicci’s energy bills. Ultimate peace of mind is offered because SeasonGuard replacement windows come with lifetime warranties that cover glass breakage, all moving parts, and workmanship. The best part about the warranties is that they transfer to the next owners, which in Nicci’s case, will likely be one of her children.
