Many times it is hard for a homeowner to realize the full potential of their home. A number of factors can influence a homeowner to have difficulty seeing past the “here and now” and visualize the possibilities that can be brought to fruition with an exterior upgrade such as new siding, or windows.  One of our most recent window and siding replacement projects, completed in South Charlotte, proves that a picture is worth a thousand words!  This home’s siding  and windows had many of the common wear and tear issues that are common among homes of similar age.

We replaced the homes existing  masonite siding with premium Hardie Plank fiber cement siding with vinyl soffits. We also replaced the homes existing wooden framed windows with Simonton vinyl replacement windows. In a recent study of homeowners who replaced their siding with vinyl siding, more than 50% stated that they would have chosen James Hardie fiber-cement siding had they been informed on the advantages prior to making their siding purchase. Hardie Plank fiber cement siding resists rotting, warping, cracking, hail, and high winds up to 150 mph. It is noncombustible and even approved for fire-rated construction and also five times thicker than vinyl delivering more durability and protection for your home!  In addition, the ColorPlus Technology factory applied, baked on finish provides up to 30% better fade resistance than competitive products.

Belk Builders combined the top quality characteristics of Hardie Plank with upscale Simonton vinyl windows to breathe new life into the exterior of this home. Simonton has been manufacturing some of the best vinyl windows on the market since 1946 — legendary Simonton quality continues to be recognized throughout the industry and is evident in the numerous industry awards Simonton receives. These windows not only look the part, they also perform the part as well. The premium vinyl used in these windows is an excellent insulator offering  low conductivity. With thermal properties  far superior to aluminum, steel and stainless steel providing a very low temperature transfer into, or out of your home, helping keep you comfortable all year long. These qualities also deliver energy efficiency which will pay for themselves over time in the savings gained on power costs. Simonton windows also have a very low-E glass coating which prevents damage to interior surfaces  from the sun’s harmful rays. Also aiding in the window’s ability to allow greater thermal efficiency.
