Marshall Exteriors Case Studies: The Revival of Family Home

Thursday, January 31st, 2019 by Kim Peters

Challenge

This family recently purchased their grandparents’ home and right away wanted to give it new windows and siding. The windows became drafty and were no longer energy efficient. The siding on the home was dated and suffered from exposure to the elements. Finding the right contractor with a high level of customer service and reliability was important to the homeowners. After meeting with a few other contractors in the area they were displeased in the level of service they had received already. It was through Rotary that she met the owner of Marshall Exteriors and right away felt like it was a different kind of construction company.  

 

Solution

The homeowners decided to tackle the project in stages. To aid in reducing their energy bill replacing the windows was a high priority. The first step the Marshall Exteriors crew took was to expertly install 18 vinyl replacement windows. For the next step in the project, the homeowners had the front porch enclosed and a window and door added. After these phases of the project were complete the home was ready for the new siding.

To prepare for the new siding the crew installed foam board over the existing siding. The foam board creates a smooth platform for the siding while increasing the R-value of the home. Next, the siding crew wrapped the home in 1700 Square Feet of Alside Charter Oak vinyl siding in ‘midnight blue’ color. To accentuate the new windows and create some added dimension to the home ‘white’ soffit and trim were added around the windows and beneath the roof line.

Taking the transformation of the home to the next level, the homeowners chose Versetta Stone Veneer in ‘graphite’ color to accent the front of the house while protecting it from any debris coming off the busy street. Cedar shakes in ‘cast iron’ color were added to the front gable coordinating with the stone veneer, really giving this home stand out curb appeal.

Completing the project new seamless gutters and downspouts were installed to channel water away from the new siding and foundation of the home.
