Intro: Free Estimate from Siding Contractor JWE
These York Springs PA homeowners contacted us for a free estimate for new siding installation.
This York County couple wanted to update the look of their log cabin home. Tired of the constant upkeep and maintenance required of the traditional log siding, these retired homeowners wanted to explore their options for a more modern look. JWE owner Jeff Erb and project manager RJ D'Angelo presented options for several types of siding, including log imitation vinyl, dutch lap, aluminum, fiber cement (Hardie-Plank) and more. After browsing our selection of samples provided at no cost as part of our free estimate, the homeowners chose to go with a 4" inch straight lap vinyl siding with custom metal-wrapped trim and fascia and new soffit. Check out the scope of work details below.
Scope of Work: Exterior Remodel & Siding Contractor
We always make sure our customers' homes are well protected from weather and moisture, and insulated against home energy loss. This usually means installing some type of extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation insulation panels like Kingspan GreenGuard insulation or Tyvek house wrap for moisture. This particular log cabin home was really well insulated and since we did not demolish any of the existing wall systems, the homeowners chose to not install any further insulation. You can learn more about house-wrap and exterior insulation on our Siding/Exterior page. We therefore determined that the home needed house-wrap installation. So we included installation of Tyvek house-wrap in the remodeling scope of work.
Furring Strip Framing before Vinyl Siding Installation
Ultimately we had to install furring strips around the entire exterior of this home, fastened directly to the log siding. Pictured below are photos of the furring installation. This was necessary to create an even, flat and flush surface for installing the vinyl siding. The windows and doors were additionally framed out with furring strips in order to allow room for their custom-fabricated aluminum trim.
Colors & Styles: Siding, Fascia, Soffit, Metal Trim & More: Log Cabin Remodel
Framing out the entire exterior of this log cabin home meant that every outer surface needed to be redone, which was part of the plan for this exterior remodel. Our expert siding installers and carpenters installed custom-fabricated break-metal trim around doors, windows, fascia, porch posts, etc. The soffit was replaced also. The homeowners chose a Mahogany colored straight-lap 4" vinyl siding. The brand we used is Mastic Ovation by PlyGem, an excellent siding manufacturer.
The color of the trim and accents had to match the Mahogany color siding. We helped these customers choose a Musket Brown color aluminum metal for the trim around doors and windows, fascia and soffit. This helped keep the rustic look that they liked so much about the old log cabin, but now it looks much more modern. And, of course, with vinyl siding the home will now cost much less money and time to maintain.
Straight-Lap (Clapboard) Style vs. Dutch-Lap Style Vinyl Siding
As is the case for many of our siding remodels (like this one in McSherrystown) these customers had to choose between different styles of vinyl siding: "straight-lap" or "dutch-lap" style. Dutchlap is the original style and is thought of as more traditional, while Straight-lap (also called Clapboard) provides a more modern look. Both vinyl siding styles come with similar benefits in terms of durability, aesthetics, water drainage and ease of installation. Some suggest that dutchlap style (on the right) has better impact-resistance. However, in or opinion and experience, the jury is still out on that one. In short, both of these popular vinyl siding styles are extremely durable, look great, and are affordable options for anyone looking to renovate their home's exterior. Both CertainTeed and PlyGem - two of our favorite building product manufacturers - offer a number of color and style choices in their vinyl siding products.
