Siding Replacement in Oostburg, WI

Project Description

A client called WeatherPro Exteriors regarding siding replacement for their home in Oostburg, near Lake Michigan. The home is approximately 30 years old with cedar shake siding, casement, and windows with wood on the interior, vinyl outside. The siding and windows had been damaged due to water sheeting down the house.

We set up a free estimate and sent an expert out to the home to measure.  Our expert sat down with the homeowners to discuss the various options for siding. Our expert advised the family throughout the planning process to ensure our work came in under budget.

The clients were concerned about the condition and integrity of the home’s old cedar siding. In addition, they were concerned with the state of the support beams and buttresses on the back of the home. We discovered that the siding on the back of the home was torn, exposing the 2 x 4s. We addressed that issue immediately to protect the home until we were able to re-side it.

Our Solutions

The customer determined materials and brands for siding replacement. We remeasured the property to ensure the correct measurements and reviewed the materials our client selected. Once we provided the remeasure, we ordered the materials to be delivered directly to the property.

We removed the old siding, including the underlayment materials. The client had James Hardie siding, so we used James Hardie HardieWrap Weather Barrier. Then we installed the HardiePlank Lap Siding, using siding nail guns. Siding is vital for protecting the home from the wind, rain, snow, fire, and pests. James Hardie siding is particularly effective because it’s engineered for the harsh Midwest climate. The client’s choice for siding combined with our expert installation means their home will be protected for years to come. In addition, the value of the home is increased due to our upgrades.

In addition, we replaced the gutters. Finally, we trimmed the client’s windows using HardieTrim Boards. Once all the siding is installed, our professional painter arrived and painted the siding in Deep Ocean and the trim in Arctic White.

Conclusion

We completed our work carefully, with a high level of detail and care that allowed us to do the job right. Sales Rep Jason dedicated a lot of time going back and forth with the family to assist in the decision-making process. I don’t think that a lot of companies would provide the time and care that was needed to complete this job. The customers were very happy with the work that we did and how the house looks now. New siding also increases a home’s curb appeal.
