James Hardie fascia

Replacing the fascia boards on your Austin home is a cost-effective way to increase the curb-appeal of your home. Because fascia boards “face” the elements, it’s not hard to understand why so many in Austin are distressed looking.

Here are two fascia board installation techniques:
1) If you currently have a 2″ wood fascia product, you can contract us to easily install a new 1″ James Hardie trim right over top of it as a cladding (see inset photo).
2) If your home has an existing 1″ or 3/8″ thick fascia product, then we would remove that completely and install new James Hardie product in its place.

Call us for a free quote to learn how you can easily hit the re-fresh button on your house. And, if you’re still wondering what in the heck fascia is, click right HERE!

Casements that look like Double Hung windows

Picture D blog_web

If you want the look of double hung windows but Austin’s egress codes are hampering that effort, ask if “colonial casements” are right for your home. Colonial casements are casements that look like double hung windows.  A faux meeting rail is inserted (usually between the panes) to give the window a double hung style from the street—therefore, keeping a consistent look between all the windows.

In this photo: Two of the four windows on the right side of the house are “colonial casements.” The other two are real double hung windows. Can you tell which two are the colonial casements?

When to install joint flashing versus caulking

When ColorPlus lap siding pieces are used in the same run, they are required per James Hardie “best practices” to have joint flashing.  Flashing behind joints provides an unparalleled level of house protection against water damage.

Caulking James Hardie PrimePlus lap siding at the joints is required. However caulking the joints is not recommended for ColorPlus products for aesthetic reasons as the caulking and ColorPlus products will most likely weather at different rates of speed, thus leaving a less than desirable aesthetic look.

Masonite siding Replaced with James Hardie in South Austin

Before and After photos of Masonite brand siding replaced with James Hardie lap siding. Here is a before and after photo of a James Hardie siding repair job we just completed. This South Austin home had rotting Masonite brand siding. If left unchecked, this once popular brand of siding typically experiences buckling, rotting and softening (like you see in the “before” picture). If left to deteriorate further, it can eventually result in damage to the structure of a home including permanent mildew, indoor leaks and buildup of toxic molds. Siding replacement from Austin Pro Siding and Windows can change all this. Call us for your free, no hassle James Hardie quote.

James Hardie CEO Louis Gries in Austin

I had the privilege of meeting Louis Gries, the CEO of James Hardie, last week in Austin.

The reason for my lucky encounter was that he was passing through Austin from his hometown of Chicago (he denied that he was in town for SxSW). Ultimately, he joined me and my local Hardie rep, Randy, on one of our contractor-level meetings.

During the meeting, Mr. Gries brought valuable insight to my siding business practices and metrics. We had some lighter moments, too, as we swapped funny stories about our engagement with Yelp reviews.

Having Mr. Gries at the meeting proves to me that James Hardie has an unobstructed commitment to communication at the many layers of their business model. And as an dedicated installer, I appreciate that.

Mike and Sue love their Simonton windows

I recently finished a Simonton Prism Platinum window replacement job on the East Side of Austin.

Part of this job required reducing the size of an old 10′ slider opening to fit a brand new 6′ wide premium garden-style door (see photo).  To do this, my crew reframed the opening, installed drywall, insulation, new trim work and siding.

Here’s what the customer’s had to say when we finished the job:

“If you are looking for some great windows and a awesome company to work with, call Paul at Austin Pro Siding. Paul has a great work ethic. At no time did we feel pressured, he stayed in touch with us from beginning to end, and answered all of our questions.  

I also appreciate the fact that he gives back to the community by donating to Habitat for Humanity.  He is an all around great guy and we are glad we got to work with him.

Chuck and his team of installers were kind, respectful and excellent at their craft.

We chose white Simonton windows and replaced our old sliding glass door with a Simonton garden door.  We love our windows and the door is beautiful!

Highly Recommend!”
