This was an exterior renovation on a craftsman home in SE Portland. We removed asbestos siding, installed Hardieplank lap siding (5” reveal), installed HardieShakes on the gables as an accent, installed a HardieTrim craftsman window/door trim package and painted the home with Sherwin Williams paints.
This was a great before/after as it really brought the character out of the house both in siding type and color choice and brightened up the street!
Restoring older homes in Portland is a specialty of our firm as we have access to in-house crews who specialize in the restoration of older homes. Restoring older homes is time consuming and takes crews who have a high level of craftsmanship to deal with the challenges an older home presents. We love the before and after pictures that these projects present and feel good that we’ve brought some of the original craftsman flavor back to these neighborhoods.
We see many older homes with asbestos siding which takes away from the original look and feel. By utilizing HardieShakes on the gables and a custom exterior color scheme we were able to take this SE Portland house and make it shine!
