Timeline:  3 weeks


Decades of sun had turned this home’s natural cedar shingles to a worn brown color. The homeowners could have opted for a full sand and stain project, but instead chose to reside their home. They wanted the cedar shakes replaced with HardiePlank siding.  In addition to the new siding, this three week project would result in new trim, windows, French doors, and gutters.

HardiePlank Siding Installation

Inspired by the look of a home in the neighborhood, the homeowner had a vision of an all white exterior. Quite a contrast to the current cedar shingled exterior.  We helped the homeowner select the type and style of HardiePlank that would best meet their style preferences. In only a few weeks this home had a brand new, all white exterior!


The homeowners wanted siding that would be sturdy, and practically maintenance free. HardiePlank is exactly that!  HardiePlank is a cement product which can look very similar to cedar plank. It is moisture resistant, an important quality for exterior siding.

To get this project underway, we stripped the entire exterior of the house to the sheeting.  Most of the trim was taken down as well as the gutters.  The doors were not touched, as well as the couple of windows that weren’t being replaced.

As the exterior siding project was underway we began to embark on the second part of this project.  By removing windows and a portion of a concrete wall, our team was able to install French doors. This new door installation gave access between the ground floor rec room and the backyard. Additionally, they provided a great deal of natural light.

We also replaced some of the exterior trim of this home. Carpenters used composite trim, which is also moisture resistant.

In only three weeks our team was able to completely transform the exterior of this home! To see all the photos of this major renovation, visit the HardiePlank Siding Installation project page.
