In the video below we’ll show you some before and after photos and videos of a home that transformed its appearance by painting the brick, replacing the siding with James Hardie fiber cement siding, and using some stained cedar accents. Take a look and then we’ll walk you through the changes:
The first thing that you’ll see is that the front of the house was transformed by painting the brick white. As you spend more time with it you’ll notice that the gutter, soffit, and trim have all been upgraded to James Hardie. The windows have been replaced. And the front porch was extended forward using a stained cedar. The window directly above the porch is outlined in cedar and the gable has some cedar accents to introduce some color.
Next, the left side of the house had a beige horizontal vinyl siding that was upgraded to a white vertically-oriented James Hardie siding. Similarly, the back of the house had its beige siding replaced with the same white vertically-oriented James Hardie siding. The right side of the house received the same treatment with just a bit of cedar trim above the garage. Later in the video, you can see a close-up of the before and after footage of the gables on the front of the house. The cedar accents make a huge difference to give this home a warmer feeling. The back porch was constructed with white painted wood, but after this renovation, it got a cleaner and more open look by using larger and fewer cedar posts and a cedar ceiling.
If your home needs new siding, then why not take the opportunity to transform its appearance? You can replace vinyl siding with cedar to give your home a natural look or you can use a fiber cement James Hardie siding for versatility and virtually endless color and texture options. James Hardie and Cedar both offer better durability, reliability, sustainability, and longevity than vinyl siding.
