George J Keller and Sons recently completed a home remodeling project in Long Valley, New Jersey. The project required us to replace the roof and the siding.
In projects like this we tackle them in a set order so that we can best handle any issues that might come along. First we replace the roof.
The old roof material was removed and any damaged plywood sub-structure was replaced. As usual we pay great attention to the surrounding area and make sure not to damage any adjacent landscaping.
The client made an excellent selection with GAF – Roofing TimberlineHDZ shingles in Charcoal for their new roof. These High Definition architectural shingles offer many benefits to homeowners including:
- A limited Lifetime Warranty
- StainGuard® Algae protection
- A limited Wind Warranty with no maximum speed limit
Next job was to install the siding.
We removed the old siding and clad the whole house with James Hardie “HardieWrap®” weather barrier which provides an additional level of water and mildew resistance to the project.
The client selected fiber cement siding from James Hardie, specifically 7″ exposure, wood grain Hardie Plank in Night Gray. Fiber cement siding from James Hardie has many advantages for home owners:
- It’s essentially maintenance-free, just requires a wash from garden hose every 6-12 months
- Hardie Plank comes with a 15 year color guarantee
- Fiber cement siding is rot and mold resistant
Last job is to apply the trim and other finishing touches. We wrapped all the window and door trim in 3″ powder coated aluminum, added custom 3.5″ picture frame style lineals, added a pvc composite pilaster and crosshead around the front door, and added 4″ Hardie corners to help frame the home.
We also installed new gable vents, hidden vent soffit panels on all roof soffits, and installed beaded vinyl soffit on the porch ceilings.
