Case Studies: Hunter's Gate Exterior Facelift

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017 by Lucas Wilson


Charlotte, NC Home With High Maintenance & Rotten Masonite Siding

As a homeowner, you know that exterior maintenance projects are irritating and inevitable tasks that we could all live without.

When hardboard siding is not properly maintained, your home is susceptible to water intrusion that can cause major damage hidden behind the walls.  To avoid that costly (and potentially dangerous) problem, you would have to caulk and paint the exterior of your home every 5 years.  Fortunately for Jim and Judy, their exterior maintenance concerns are no more!


Low Maintenance James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding

We removed all existing siding down to the exterior wall sheathing.  Upon inspection, we found several areas of the home where water had passed through the old siding.  We were able to catch the problem before it was too late and make the necessary repairs.  From there, we installed a water tight vapor barrier to make sure that if water passed through the new siding, the home would still be protected.

Installations included James Hardie ColorPlus Fiber Cement Siding and Trim, new gutters and downspouts, and a brand new Therma-Tru patio door.  With James Hardie’s pre-finished ColorPlus siding guarantee, no need for a fresh coat of paint for 15 years!  That’s three paint cycles for a home with hardboard or wood siding.  Not only did the new siding decrease the required maintenance, it also beautified their home and added wonderful curb appeal.

Client Testimonial

“This was an expensive project. When I spend a lot of money, I expect an great experience which, unfortunately is rarely received. Not the case with TruGuard! The experience was exceptional! We went with TruGuard over other companies because of John Hamilton. He was very knowledgeable and represented the company well. The workmen on site every day were great. We loved hearing them talking, laughing and singing. They were always smiling and friendly even in uncomfortable weather conditions. Not a single complaint was heard. The real jewel was Travis Beaudry. He is professional and respectful. He was amazing and made it obvious that his main concern was making us happy. He kept us informed and made sure we understood every step of the project. He would spot and correct things that we didn’t even notice. He was always available to us and went above and beyond to make sure everything was done and done right. In short, it was an extremely positive experience from start to finish. You have a great team and they deserve pats on the back. Thank you for a job well done. I have already recommended TruGuard to others and will not hesitate to continue doing so.” – Judy & Jim M.
