Siding in Southaven

House with masonite siding- before

Quinta Contractors, LLC, is licensed in both Tennessee and Mississippi.  We offer all types of home improvements including Premium Vinyl Siding.  The pictures are from a job we did in the Stonehedge subdivision located in Southaven, MS back in 2004.

House prior to vinyl siding

 

This home had masonite siding applied during new construction.  The existing panel was a smooth 8″ lap with a small bead at the base of each panel.  The look was nice and very distinctive, however as is the case with masonite siding in humid climates- the siding was rotting away right in front of the homeowners eyes.  Year by year they had watched the deterioration increase, since a few years after its construction in 1987.

Vinyl siding was a great solution for this couple.  As in most cases, we applied insulation board directly over the existing siding (You see there is really no reason to remove the existing siding as the rot will cease at the point at which we cover it with the vinyl.  When large scale rot is encountered we simply cut out the bad area and replace with plywood- so as to have an adequate surface to nail the new siding.).  The color they chose for the vinyl siding was Lien for both walls and sofits as their color.  The matching vinyl soffit material we installed had a hidden vent panel which provides a consistent look on all soffits and overhangs; this soffit panel eliminated the look of solid panels being followed by a vented panel every 5 or 6 feet which had been so common in the industry.

We wrapped the window and door opening with wood grain vinyl coated aluminum to match the wood grain appearance of the vinyl dutch-lap panels applied to the walls.   When all the trim was added, the nice, crisp lines of the siding and soffit offered a fresh, clean look to the house.  The homeowners were proud of the investment made to improve the aesthetic appeal of the house which offered them the added assurance of being “maintenance free”.
