Every home wants to increase its curb appeal. There are lots of factors to consider including windows, doors, the roof and most importantly the siding. The type of siding a home has impacts both the aesthetic appeal and the infrastructure of a home. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right kind of siding—one that will hold up and look attractive.
At Belk Builders, we facilitate many siding replacement projects in Lake Norman, taking once worn out exteriors and refreshing them with a quality, robust product. Recently, we had the opportunity to do just that for a lake home using Hardie® Plank siding to replace old cedar siding.
Cedar Siding Isn’t Durable or Long-Lasting
The home originally had cedar siding, which, at least in the beginning, has a nice look. However, it must be regularly stained and sealed to keep moisture out and rot, mold, and warping from occurring. This can be expensive and time-intensive.
When cedar isn’t properly cared for, it becomes susceptible to insects, which isn’t a concern with fiber cement siding like Hardie® Plank. Insects then attract woodpeckers, so you could get a double hit. Cedar siding also has a lower fire rating than fiber cement.
Hardie® Plank Replacement Siding Transforms Exterior
With this Lake Norman project, Belk Builders found the cedar siding in need of total removal, after years of wear and the effects of weather. Upon removal, the Hardie® Plank siding replacement began to transform the home and give it new life. Take a look at the dramatic before and after pictures to see for yourself.
