Exterior Wood Restoration

As anyone who lives in the South knows, exterior wood only lasts so long…but sometimes the breakdown is so gradual that we forget what our homes could look like! This week, we’re looking at the magic that happened when we replaced the exterior wood soffit, fascia, and siding on this home.

Starting out, we take a look at the old eaves, once white, now turning black and rotten:

With new LP Smartside® soffit and fascia trim installed, the eaves are good to go once again:

Another before, during, and after from the back of the house:

While most of this home is brick, some of the exterior walls were covered in old Masonite® siding…which we removed and replaced with LP Smartside® lap siding and trim:

And everywhere we installed new siding, we also painted it with Sherwin Williams® paint:

Not only did we replace the siding, soffit, and fascia, we also removed the old roof shingles and replaced them with Tamko® Heritage shingles in the Rustic Slate color:

The transformed home, beautiful and peaceful in the sun, no longer rotting away at the seams:

Exterior Updates

A lot of people deep-clean their houses in the fall, but what about the exterior? When was the last time the outside of your house got a good cleaning?

For this homeowner, we power-washed the exterior of their home and garage, including their concrete sidewalks:

But…when you clean, you often find things that need updating as well. So why not get it all done in one go?

So we also removed the storm windows from the home’s beautiful bay window, and then replaced and painted the rotten wood beneath the window:

And then the biggest and best update! This home has a lovely rooftop balcony with outdoor steps leading up to it. But…those steps were made of wood, so you know what happened within a couple of years? Mm-hm, they started getting all soft and rotten and risky to climb. This is where we come in, but instead of replacing those wooden stairs with more wooden stairs that will also rot, we did something much better!

First, we installed Trex® Elevations metal framework for the new stairs:

Step 2 was installing the Trex® Transcend decking itself, in this beautiful Spiced Rum color:

And last of all, we reinstalled the homeowner’s white vinyl railings for a stunning contrast:

And here are the completed stairs, beautiful and sturdy and safe to climb for years to come:

How is the exterior of your home looking? Does it need some love – a little cleaning, a little updating? And while we’re here, we’ve been talking about Trex® composite decking quite a bit lately – it’s beautiful, right? Do you have any questions about it?
