James Hardie Siding Installation Revitalizes Overland Park Home Suffering from Wood Rot

See how Smart Exteriors revitalized an Overland Park home by replacing damaged wood siding with low-maintenance James Hardie fiber cement siding.

Location: Overland Park, KS
Renovations: James Hardie Siding Installation

An Overland Park homeowner was fed up with the wood rot and woodpecker damage on her home’s siding. In addition to negatively impacting her home’s curb appeal, the deteriorating natural wood siding required extensive upkeep. She wanted to maintain the appearance of the wood siding, but with a longer-lasting, lower-maintenance product for her two-story home.

After downloading “A Homeowners Guide to Exterior Siding in Kansas City,” written by Steve Glaze, owner of Smart Exteriors, she felt comfortable with Smart Exteriors’ knowledge and expertise and employed our team to replace her home’s siding.

Goodbye to Wood Rot, and Hello to James Hardie Siding! 

The team at Smart Exteriors recommended James Hardie fiber cement siding for its resistance to rot and damage from pests like woodpeckers and termites. James Hardie siding is made from sand, wood fiber, and cement, which makes it exceptionally durable, lasting up to 30 years! It is uniquely suited to the Kansas City area’s harsh, wet winter weather and rainy springs.

The Overland Park homeowner chose James Hardie  6 ¼” lap siding with a smooth finish in Hardie’s ColorPlus Mountain Sage with white trim. When the siding arrived, it was the Cedarmill texture rather than the smooth texture that the customer had requested. The Smart Exteriors team noticed the problem immediately and paid to have the correct siding delivered quickly. Despite this challenge, we were able to finish the project on time

The homeowner was thrilled with her home’s new James Hardie siding and Smart Exteriors’ exceptional siding installation.

“Steve Glaze and his crew made the siding project efficient and easy,” she said. “We especially liked his responsiveness to our questions and his oversight of the project. If we had another house, we would use Smart Exteriors again.”
