Location: Evanston, IL
Renovations: James Hardie Siding, Marvin Elevate Windows
An Evanston resident who was fortunate enough to own a gorgeous French deco architectural gem on an oak tree-lined street needed an update for his home’s exterior. He contacted Siding & Window Group to replace his old patio doors and discuss additional options.
Thorough siding & window consultation and custom design touches
The client met with one of our knowledgeable designers who thoroughly evaluated their home’s exterior. With her keen eye for practicality and detail, our designer noticed that the home also needed replacements for the crumbling windows and deteriorating wood siding, which was in danger of damaging the structure of the home and creating ongoing maintenance issues.
To accommodate the client’s request that the home maintains its Shiplap style, our designer recommended James Hardie fiber cement siding’s premier Aspyre line, which is 5% thicker and offers a variety of artisan design profiles. James Hardie’s durable, low-maintenance siding only requires a twice-yearly simple wash with a garden hose and nylon brush.
In addition to the new siding, our designer suggested replacing the windows with Marvin Elevate casements with Ebony exterior, factory painted Designer Black Pine interior, a matte black folding handle, and James Hardie wrap on the exterior and west side dormer to finish the look.
While removing the old siding, our crew noticed that there was no insulation between the walls! We added sheathing to better protect the home.
