Project Details

A high-value residence in Western Pulaski County encountered hidden threats to its integrity with severe moisture problems concealed behind the EIFS. Sideco was brought on board to address and rectify these issues, which required a complete removal of the exterior, including most of the natural stone base.

Our rigorous process involved not just the removal but also essential structural repairs. We prioritized establishing a robust moisture-proof barrier to protect the home against future damage. After ensuring the home's integrity, we installed a combination of James Hardie plank and shake siding, which not only heightened the home's aesthetic appeal but also fortified it against the elements.

The transformation was comprehensive and striking, with Sideco's seasoned team delivering a level of workmanship that is nothing short of stunning. It's a sad truth that many homes suffer from moisture issues due to improper installation of EIFS. However, our clients take comfort in knowing that Sideco possesses the requisite experience and expertise to repair these issues and implement preventative measures to safeguard against recurrence.

The home, which initially showed no outward signs of distress, revealed significant unseen damage once the old siding was removed. Sideco's meticulous approach ensured that the home was not only repaired but also made completely moisture-proof before the addition of the James Hardie products. We employed an array of James Hardie materials, including plank, straight shake in Monterey taupe, and soffit, fascia, trim, crown mold, and beaded ceiling panel in cobblestone. The project was crowned with the installation of new, elegant exterior lighting, enhancing the home's grandeur.

The homeowners were not only comforted by the moisture remediation but also impressed by the refreshed look, a result of Sideco's dedication to detail and craftsmanship. The beige siding chosen harmoniously complements the natural stone base, presenting a unified and elegant appearance.

Testimonials from the clients shows the professionalism and passion that Sideco's team members bring to their craft. Their camaraderie and enjoyment was evident in their daily interactions and breaks, such as soccer games and fishing. Sideco has a team that is deeply invested in their work and in delivering quality results and we love having fun!

This project showcases Sideco's commitment to restoring beauty and functionality to homes, ensuring that they are safe, secure, and aesthetically pleasing for years to come.

Testimonial

Everyone we met with Sideco were true professionals, who really appear to love what they are doing. They gave a 100% everyday they were on the job. The most pleasing thing for me was not only the hard work and skill sets but how they interacted with each other for their lunch break. Maybe a soccer game a bit of fishing or some frisbee, a true team. People who love their work show it with the quality end product.

The whole team was amazing but Anthony was a superior foreman to the crew and kept us apprised of everything going on. 1st one to arrive and the last one to leave the job everyday.
