Mountain Home Transformed With New Siding and Decking


Challenges

What To Do About Warped Wood Siding
This mountain home renovation by Superior Products Home Remodeling shows how to renovate a home with warped wooden siding, and the results transformed this mountain home and have preserved it for years to come. This northern Colorado home overlooking Horsetooth Reservoir needed significant exterior remodeling. The wood siding was warped. The wooden deck was splintered and molding. Old leaky windows skyrocketed the home owner’s utility bills. The roof was so worn that roof leakage was imminent. In addition, due to the low railings on the deck, wildlife was routinely wandering onto the deck.

The Solutions

Siding:  Superior Products used fiber cement siding painted with a custom, two-tone color to look like stained cedar. Insulation also was added to reduce utility bills by roughly 25%.

Decking:  A new rail system and stairs were added to the front deck.  The back deck system was removed, expanded & replaced with composite materials for the deck, rails, and stairs.  The new deck also featured thin-profile, iron-coated rail balusters for better views of the nearby reservoir. The deck also provided more barriers to gently discourage wildlife from accessing the deck.

Windows & Door: Energy-efficient, wood-clad and vinyl windows and a new patio door that complement the new siding and decking were added.

Roofing:  The roof was replaced with a dimensional composite roof that will easily withstand the area’s high winds.

The Results

This mountain home literally was transformed from a dated-looking, gray-toned wood structure to a beautiful and durable mountain home in warm wood tones ideal for its foothills location. Energy efficiency was significantly improved, and proved an ideal study in how to reduce energy bills for mountain homes. The new deck system allowed for more enjoyment of the mountain views, without wild animals wandering onto the decks. This mountain home siding & decking renovation project won an Honorable Mention – Exterior Remodel.
