Slate Grey Staggered Profile Lap Siding – Build Your Curb Appeal

Posted by Northface Construction  - Owner & Founder

Hey folks! Welcome to our new Build Your Curb Appeal series. Our goal with Build Your Curb Appeal is to profile a unique trend, feature, or style that you might not see a lot, but would look great on just about any home. These days, people are shying away from the cookie-cutter homes and are looking for new ways to set their homes apart from their neighbors. With this series, we’re hoping that you can draw your inspiration from some of the features we’re talking about.

Today, we’re focusing on a house in Minneapolis near the University of Minnesota that uses an awesome, durable siding in a unique way.

LP SmartSide Siding

So the first thing you’ll notice about this house is the dark color of the siding. The color itself is unique not a stock color but was prefinished in the factory. The siding is LP SmartSide, doesn’t rot, won’t be impacted by the elements like hail. This siding is so durable, it comes with a 50-year warranty and the pre-finish also comes with a warranty, that one being 25 years.

While the color is unique in of itself, the texture is also something you won’t see in very many houses. People are wanting to make a statement, not just by using different colors, but through the actual texture of the home. With this siding, we actually took two different sizes of siding and staggered them all around the house. The result is a modern, creative looking home that helps the house stand out while still blending in well with the rest of the neighborhood.

The staggered siding in action

 

We’ll actually be taking a trip up to Two Harbors to meet with the manufacturer of the LP SmartSide Trim and Siding and we’ll be able to provide you with a behind-the-scenes look of the product. Overall, it’ll be a great way to learn more about a fantastic and sustainable Minnesota-made home building product.

Cedar Wood Trim

Another awesome detail on this home is the cedar wood detailing around the windows. Now, we love working with cedar at Northface Construction. Cedar is nostalgic and has great character but also looks great on modern homes. Just remember that if you use cedar on your home, you’re going to want to continuously maintain it by sanding it, otherwise, it will fade to normal gray color.
