Location: Carmel, IN
Renovations: James Hardie, Exterior Paint from Sherwin Williams
A Carmel, Indiana homeowner loved his house, but the 30 year old exterior was beginning to appear worn and dated. The siding was rotting and had sustained damage from repeated attacks by determined woodpeckers.
The homeowner contacted JD Hostetter for a solution. The full-service siding contractor helped him understand his options, including the different types of siding and which one would protect his home from damage, suit his style and aesthetic, and fulfill his budget requirement.
Woodpecker Damage Harms Home’s Siding
Woodpecker damage is no joke. Woodpeckers love to drill holes in siding, especially when it’s made of wood. These repeated attacks ultimately cause rot, water damage, mold, and compromised strength.
Sometimes the destruction is minimal, and repairing the siding is possible. Unfortunately for the Carmel homeowner, years of wear and drilling by the persistent birds meant his siding was beyond repair, and the best option was a complete replacement.
James Hardie Siding: Preventing Future Damage
When it comes to repairing existing woodpecker damage and resisting future destruction, James Hardie’s fiber cement siding is the best choice. Made from a blend of cement, sand, and cellulose fiber, Hardie siding is woodpecker-proof and extremely durable. Woodpeckers won’t stand a chance.
