Unfortunately, this home was experiencing severe moisture issues. Many homes with an EFIS exterior ( Dry-Vit) experience moisture penetration around openings as well as wicking moisture from roof lines or being too close to the ground. Our customer had the house probed with moisture detection gauges and there were many areas with very high moisture content. Because of the nature of this siding material as well as the extensive moisture damage, there are very few companies in the entire country with the knowledge and skills necessary to properly complete this project. The only solution was to completely remove the exterior and all trim, repair all the damaged wall cavities, and structural framing, then install a new substrate with moisture proof exterior ( Zip system). Once this was done, the structure of the home was then protected and completely moisture proof. Our new exterior is a mix of James Hardie color plus plank ( Booth Bay blue) and James Hardie staggered shake ( Booth Bay blue ) and all of the eaves, window trim, door trim, crown mold, etc. is James Hardie color plus trim products in Navajo beige.
For accent and more mix of products, native natural stone was added to the foundation and columns.
As you can see, this home is now back to being the premier home it was intended to be. Sideco was honored to have been selected to be the contractor on such an upscale beautiful home.
Anthony, the foreman, provided tremendous service. At one point, when a roof leaked during a heavy rain late at night (due to an addition being tied into existing home's roof which had not been completed yet) Anthony left his house at 4am and drove 3 hours to arrive at 7am in the morning to help repair or water proof the situation. This was on a Sunday when the crew had all gone home for the weekend. Another time, when the temperature had reached 3 degrees F, the entire crew jumped into gear to help save further damage when 2 separate pipes froze and burst, causing water to flood the garage and also the master bath. The entire crew says yes sir, no sir, and is extremely courteous. John, Brent, Patricio, Jimmy, Shorty and many others all made a great impression.
