Renovations: James Hardie Siding

In Leawood, KS, two homeowners faced a daunting challenge: their single-family home, built in 1954, was in dire need of repairs. The home’s siding was rotting, suffered woodpecker damage, and had poor insulation. They needed help.

Fortunately, the homeowners knew exactly who to turn to. With years of experience working on older homes and a stellar reputation in the community, Smart Exteriors was the obvious choice. The homeowners were impressed by our personalized approach and attention to detail, and they knew we’d get the job done right.

Custom Solutions for Woodpecker Issues

We listened carefully to the homeowners’ concerns and took all factors into consideration when providing recommendations.

During the consultation process, we recommended James Hardie siding for many reasons! With Hardie siding, you can trust that your home will be protected for years to come – not only is it incredibly durable, but it’s also specially designed to resist the unwanted attention of woodpeckers.

Not only did we install Hardie siding, but also combined it with Red Label Progressive foam insulation. The homeowners were relieved to have a solution that would not only fix their existing issues, but also ensure peace of mind for the next 30 years!

Navigating Challenges with Precision

Challenges during the installation process were expected, especially given the age of the home. We had to replace a lot of rotten siding with OSB prior to installing the new siding and insulation. But our team was up for the task and tackled each issue with precision and care.

While the project itself was rewarding, we always strive to go above and beyond for our customers. In this case, we actually had to custom build some doors to the under deck storage area to match the new siding – a small touch that brought the entire project together seamlessly.

Exceeding Expectations: A Customer’s Delight with Their Siding Replacement

As with all our projects, we are thrilled to have exceeded the homeowners’ expectations. They were ecstatic with the new look of their home and the peace of mind knowing they would no longer have to worry about the exterior for many years to come.

Our team takes pride in working closely with homeowners to provide top-quality service and lasting solutions. If you’re looking for a reliable and experienced team for your next exterior remodeling project, look no further than Smart Exteriors!
