When the homeowners of this charming mid-century home in Overland Park, KS, were looking for a major update to the look and style of their beloved abode, they turned to Smart Exteriors for help. Their main challenges included the desire for a fresh new appearance and the need to address the damage caused by termites and wood rot.

During the consultation process, our team at Smart Exteriors invested time to understand the homeowners’ vision for their home. We ensured that the materials and design choices aligned with their preferences, while also taking into account their budgetary considerations. At Smart Exteriors, we have the expertise and ability to use various materials to completely update the look of any home.

Why They Chose Smart Exteriors

After receiving several bids, the homeowners ultimately chose Smart Exteriors for their project. Our reputation for handling larger projects with multiple trades stood out to them, making us the perfect choice. They valued the convenience of working with a single contractor who would oversee the entire project, eliminating the need for several different contractors.

A Wide Range of Home Exterior Services Provided

To give this home a stunning new look, our team at Smart Exteriors provided the following services:

  • James Hardie Lap Siding in Night Gray
  • James Hardie Soffit, Fascia, & Trim in Mid Night Black
  • Cedar Renditions Steel Siding in Wood Grain
  • Custom Doors from ThermaTru
  • Stacked Stone Veneer in Granite

One of the standout features of this project is the wood grain siding used as an accent on the front facade. Despite its realistic wood appearance, it is actually made of steel. This material choice offers durability, as it won’t fade and never needs to be stained. Whether used as an accent, soffit, fascia, or siding, it perfectly complements the James Hardie lap siding, creating a beautiful modern home exterior that will last 30+ years with minimal maintenance.

Throughout the installation process, our team at Smart Exteriors encountered a few challenges, including severely rotted studs that needed replacement prior to installing one of the rear patio French doors. Our skilled team addressed this issue promptly and seamlessly, ensuring there were no delays or budget increases.

A Happy Customer and a Stunning Transformation

The homeowners were overjoyed with the transformation of their home. They commended the professionalism and ease of working with our team.
