This home in North Andover, Massachusetts was ready for a remodel makeover when we first saw it in 2006. The wood siding was original to the house, and was no longer holding paint. The roof’s life had run its course. And, although this home had plenty of character already, the homeowner was looking for a little something more. They knew that a project like this would require an experienced, professional roofer and siding contractor to get the job done right and they did not want to have to manage multiple contractors themselves. We were ready to take this job on, and exceed the homeowner’s expectations. In the end, we did just that-read on, and see if you agree.
First things first-the roof. This roof needed to be replaced, and fast! As a roofing contractor, this roof was fairly straightforward for us. We stripped the one layer of asphalt shingles that had been on the roof, and replaced some rotted sheathing. We re-shingled the roof with CertainTeed® 30 year 3-tab algae resistant shingles. Customer Comment “Excellent work on roof. Fast, neat, hardworking crew.”
After finishing up the roof, we moved on to replacing the siding. The cedar siding on the house was the original siding. It was rotted and no longer holding paint. It was time to find a long lasting solution. The homeowner appreciated that we are a siding contractor with multiple siding options.
The homeowner decided to use FC® fiber cement siding. We stripped all of the old siding, and used Tyvek® wrap to protect their home from the elements. We then installed the pre-primed cedar mill FC® siding. We also replaced the trim boards, fascia, and soffits with Azek TrimBoards®.
After all the installation was complete, we finished by painting the house. We used Sherwin-Williams® Duration Brand paint to give the longest lasting protection. Our painters specialize in finishing fiber cement siding.
To finish this home’s transformation, we installed cultured stone on the homeowner’s farmer’s porch. They chose the Old Country Fieldstone style to give it that classic country look.
