Are you searching for a Brookside Siding Contractor?
A common project for the team to take on at Smart Exteriors is siding replacement. This is for good reason since the siding is the first line of protection against everything from inclement weather to an errant baseball—and other threats to the home’s exterior. In addition, the siding is the first thing noticed by visitors making it an important contribution to positive curb appeal for homeowners. When installed correctly, high-quality siding–Brookside, MO homes included—can be upgraded in important ways that take the area’s climate concerns into consideration while paying homage to the original design of the home.
Recently, Smart Exteriors had the chance to put that idea to the test with the Benson Siding project. The home was located in Kansas City, MO and was built in 1935. The home still had its original cedar lap siding from when it was first built. By the time we were called in, the siding was rotting in multiple places throughout the home. The challenge presented to us by the homeowner was to maintain the historic look of the home while reducing the amount of maintenance needed. This was a challenge we were more than happy to take on.
As experts in high-quality siding options in the Kansas City area, we got to work recommending options for siding materials that perform well in the Missouri area. We showed the owner Celect cellular PVC siding because of its ability to realistically mimic real wood without the extra work that traditional wood siding requires, and its incredible strength and durability under intense weather conditions. The owner was more than impressed with the look and proven durability of this particular siding option and wasted no time in requesting this option for the installation.
Once we removed the existing rotten siding, we got to work installing the new siding in the color of Wrought Iron. Wrought Iron is a dark gray tone that reflects a truly neutral appearance while also adding in a striking, modern feel without seeming too bold or striking. To offset the dark neutral color, we installed premium-quality PVC trim in white along with matching white soffits and fascia. The resulting look was surprisingly modern with a classic, sophisticated twist that will remain in style for years after the installation.
The owner was completely satisfied with the seamless blend of beauty and function. Our team at Smart Exteriors was also satisfied with our work on the Benson siding project and were happy to conclude the project as a complete success.
