Victorian-Inspired Cottage Renovation: Before and After

This charming, seaside cottage in Fairhaven, MA was in need of a fresh façade.  The homeowner walked into our office looking for information on siding choices and after making a decision, we got right to work!  Our crew started by removing the fatigued, natural wood siding and installing TYPAR® HouseWrap for added protection of the home.  TYPAR® HouseWrap is a breathable wrap that blocks water, eliminates drafts, and helps reduce energy costs.  Next, the crew began to put the new siding up!

We replaced the fatigued natural wood siding with Cedar Discovery Shingles by Mastic.  Cedar Discovery was a great choice since the homeowner wanted to keep the traditional look of wood but was looking for a maintenance free siding.  This siding is tough enough to stand up to harsh sea side weather.  Cedar Discovery Perfection shingles in Autumn Harvest were used to side the majority of the home, while the gables were covered with sage, half-round Cedar Discovery shingles.  The Perfection shingles replicate the look of real cedar shingles with a cedar-grain texture and random gaps.  Sage, half-round shingles give a beautiful Victorian-inspired accent to the gables.  Cedar Discovery is available in 32 colors and four styles.
