The Look of Cedar Siding Without the Work

Recently, we had the opportunity to give a Rock Hill home a true makeover. The well-appointed home was originally constructed with cedar siding. Cedar siding has a very distinct look that’s both charming and classic. However, it requires lots of maintenance and doesn’t have the longevity of other materials. After three decades, the house was ready for an upgrade.

The homeowners relied on Belk Builders to help them achieve the aesthetic they desired with a more durable material requiring little maintenance. Knowing this, we recommended Hardie® Plank shake siding, which offers the look of cedar siding but with fiber cement boards. The look that it provides is exactly what anyone who loves the Cape Cod-style look would want. The timeless design and hardy material made this material the ideal choice.

Why Hardie® Plank Shake Siding?

This siding is engineered to withstand the elements. It is moisture and rot resistant so no matter how much weather comes your way, your siding will perform as expected. The ColorPlus® technology also means the color won’t fade, as it is baked on. Even years later, Hardie® Plank will still look stunning.

Home Gets More Exterior Updates

In addition to the siding work, Belk Builders, while on the job, found that the home’s deck band and house band, along with other areas, was installed improperly without flashing. To repair this, we replaced all the rotten wood and sealed it. In a few months, the homeowners can have a new deck installed in time for warm weather.

To complete the exterior makeover, replacement windows were installed. Belk Builders used Simonton windows throughout. This window brand is known for its high quality and performance capabilities.

This was a massive job with lots of moving parts. The most important thing was to meet the customer’s aesthetic requirements while also providing the best, most durable products. That’s how we approach every job—ensuring every customer achieves the look they want with products that won’t let them down.
