The Trifecta - Marvin, James Hardie, and TimberTech

Our customers love the outdoors and live extensively on their back deck. We created a covered area by extending the roof, added a custom kitchen and made it all low-maintenance with TimberTech decking and James Hardie siding.

Project Details

Living on a hill brings a lot of water into the equation which took its toll on our customers' deck. Additionally, they had moisture issues around the chimney and gutters.

Sideco completely rebuilt the substructure and replaced the wooden deck with TimberTech composite decking. We replaced all water damaged wood on the chimney and installed proper flashing to keep the water out in the future.

Our customer likes to be outside as much as possible, so we extended the roof to give them a covered area and installed fans and heaters to keep them comfortable throughout the year.

We touched it off with a custom kitchen that includes a built-in smoker and plenty of storage. Perfect for entertaining.

After the wonderful experience we had with Sideco on our windows, we were most excited at the thought of replacing our deck. Despite our best effort to keep the old wooden deck refinished, over the years it had taken a pretty good beating from the elements. Having a maintenance-free deck, using TimberTech, was quite appealing. We had a vision for what we wanted, but never thought our expectations would be so thoroughly exceeded!!

From the day Jon and Ethan Ward showed up, until the project was complete, their dedication to doing a quality job was evident in their workmanship. Their attention to detail made it feel as if they were doing these improvements to their own home. They earned our complete trust and we enjoyed their company so much it was bittersweet when the project was over. This must have something to do with the culture and work ethic at Sideco. As different workers came on and off the job, they consistently demonstrated the same dedication and “pride of ownership” in the work they were doing.

They extended the roof so we would have a covered area and did such an incredible job tying it in to our current roof, it looks like it has always been there. They replaced all the vinyl siding on the back of the house with James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding. The tongue-in-groove ceiling and infrared heaters really set it apart. It is absolutely gorgeous.

During the process, they found some areas where water had seeped behind the vinyl siding on the chimney and caused some serious water damage. Our confidence in them was bolstered even further as they assured us of their experience and showed us how they would fix the damage. They also installed a moisture barrier to prevent this from happening in the future. To top the project off, they added a cooking area which includes a one-piece concrete counter top with a built-in smoker, cedar facing on the cabinets and plenty of access to electricity.

Like many people, we’re spending much more time at home these days. Because of Sideco, it’s doesn’t feel like home. Every time we are out enjoying our new outdoor living area, it feels like we’re on vacation!
