This beautiful home near downtown Plymouth underwent a complete facelift along with the construction of a new custom garage. Our architect designed new covered porches for the front and rear of the home and matched the existing overhangs. The new front porch roof extends across the whole width of the house and new square columns were also custom built and wrapped with Certainteed PVC boards to capture the craftsman style design of the home.
The new garage was constructed with pre-engineered attic trusses for additional storage. Pull down stairs were installed for easy access to the loft area. The overhead door is by Richards Wilcox with window inserts to match the prairie style grid pattern of the rest of the windows.
After the rough framing for the porches and garage was completed our crew installed new Andersen casement windows throughout the home in black.
Lastly, new James Hardie siding and Hardie Trim boards were installed on the house and garage. As a result of the application requirements for James Hardie siding, a layer of plywood and housewrap had to be installed over the existing lap wood siding of the entire house. Iron Gray is the color of the siding along with white trim around all of the windows. A hidden vent vinyl soffit system was installed on all overhangs and aluminum trim on all rakes, eaves and flashing. Finally, black aluminum gutters were installed to match the color of the windows for a nice contrast.
Overall this project turned out beautifully and the homeowners were very happy with the results. Many passersby stopped to check out the progress as the project went on and were very impressed with the quality of the workmanship and materials being used. We have received quite a few calls from this job as the James Hardie products are a great way to increase the value of your home, not to mention its curb appeal!
