Renovations: James Hardie siding, gutters, and shutter replacement
Two Northville homeowners were in the market for an exterior update for their two-story colonial home. The siding was beginning to fail. The color was in line with the 1970s styles from the decade it was built. It was time for a change! The homeowners had a family member who had worked with the John McCarter team and loved their results, so they contacted us to see if we could help.
Setting the plan in motion
Our team first met with the client in their home to discuss their vision and our materials and pricing. We showed them samples of our proposed products and helped them choose the best ones for their home. They were immediately impressed with our team’s thorough process and knew that the renovation was going to work out perfectly.
With our input, they decided to replace their old vinyl siding with durable James Hardie fiber cement lap siding in Timber Bark. They also chose James Hardie trim and soffits in Cobble Stone, 6-inch gutters in Herringbone, and raised panel shutters in Rich Espresso. New board and batten siding for the sunroom upgraded the gathering area into a beautiful, functional, symmetrical space for family get-togethers. Lastly, we added a new porch ceiling to elevate that outdoor area.
During the demolition phase, we discovered that the home was sheeted in a press fiberboard that wasn’t structurally sound. We had new OSB sheathing delivered in a day and applied it immediately so there was a flat surface for which to install the new siding. A roof specialist on-site during the siding installation helped remove shingles, add protection, and re-shingle an area that had previously caused issues.
Northville homeowners love their abode again
Our clients were thrilled with the results and are proud of their home’s enhanced curb appeal. They praised our reliable service and meticulous installation process and plan to recommend John McCarter Construction to neighbors, friends, and family.
