Hardie Scallop and Shake Siding and Stucco Replacement in Philadelphia, PA

For this siding project in Philadelphia, PA, we removed the existing damaged cedar shakes and replaced them with Hardie fiber cement products, while stripped the failing stucco and replacing it with James Hardie fiber cement stucco. You can actually see the damaged and broken cedar shakes and the problem is that wood is susceptible to warping and cracking, especially when exposed to water and moisture. Stucco has the tendency to trap moisture under it, allowing it to eat away at the wood under the stucco. Fiber cement is the ideal choice for this home. Hardie products can mimic tons of styles, scallop, shake, and stucco included. It also resists warping, cracking, and moisture damage, so this home will be protected for decades to come.
