Midwest Historic Bungalow Transformation Using James Hardie Siding

Re-siding a home can spark an exterior transformation. You may not think so, but new siding can look so good it makes you second-guess whether you’re pulling into the right driveway. There’s just something about fresh James Hardie siding and trim that turns a drab-colored, worn-out looking home into a clean, updated, bright one. It’s enough to cause a double take.

This historic, Midwest bungalow underwent an extensive exterior renovation with new James Hardie siding and trim, a new roof, and a brand-new deck.

The newly sided home is clad in HardiePlank® lap siding and straightedge HardieShingle® siding in Light Mist with HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White. We love the pop of the red-stained front door and the fresh front porch with natural wood banisters.

This bungalow was originally built in 1896, and needed multiple layers of old siding to be removed and replaced. Because the homeowners went with James Hardie siding and trim, the bungalow remains classic in style, with the addition of more protection and good looks.

James Hardie® fiber cement products combine beautiful design with high performance. Time and time again, they beat out competitors on both curb appeal and durability

After all, when it comes to re-siding a historical home, you can rest easy knowing James Hardie siding and trim are:

Durable: James Hardie fiber cement products are noncombustible, and engineered to help withstand damage from pests (such as pesky woodpeckers) and Midwest weather (such as freezing temperatures, moisture, snowfall, ice, hail, wind and extreme temperature variations).

Warrantied: James Hardie is so confident in its products that it offers a 30-year non-prorated limited substrate warranty on its siding and a 15-year non-prorated limited substrate warranty on HardieTrim® boards.

Lasting: James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology finish resists damaging UV rays which means your home’s siding color will last longer with less maintenance, than paint applied on the job site.
