Mixing siding profiles and colors make this 1940s cottage new again
The Bird family’s metro-Detroit house was in serious need of an update. Clad in off-white siding with a roof that had faded from black to gray over time and surrounded by deteriorating wood fences, their 1940s-era home was receding into the background.
“We definitely want to make our house ‘pop more’,” said Ann Bird. “We like the character of it, but the siding is drab.”
To deliver the curb appeal the Bird’s wanted high-quality Monogram® vinyl siding in classic Oxford Blue was installed on the body of the home. Cedar Impressions® cedar shake siding was used on home’s dormers to highlight the home’s architectural elements. The roof was updated with a durable and striking Landmark® PRO shingles in coordinating Atlantic Blue. To complete the look, a red door was added and the yard was trimmed in a traditional white picket fence.
