This project is a great example of an exterior historic restoration. This home’s original wood clapboard siding was covered in aluminum siding around the mid 20th century. The homeowner is devoted to returning the charm to their historic home by restoring one façade at a time.
Having completed the removal of all the aluminum material themselves, the homeowners then asked us to repair the wood siding and trim underneath. There were small sections damaged, boards missing and the decorative trim over the windows were either missing or in bad condition. Per the customers’ request, all wood materials were used in order to stay in keeping with the historic nature of the home. Gary and his crew repaired all the siding with cedar, repaired or rebuilt window trim and the circular attic vent and built the portico over the front door, which was designed by the customer and supported with columns that the homeowner provided.
