James Hardie siding in Beverly Hills
Traditional Exterior, Detroit
James Hardie siding project in Beverly Hills. This home's front porch had two ordinary 4" x 4" posts and no beam between the two posts. We created 10" x 10" Miratec columns with 12" x 12" bases and twin 2" collar wraps. To give further strength to the entryway, we built 8" x 8" Miratec beams to tie the larger columns into the wide ceiling. Adding a touch of warmth, we installed a clear fir tongue & groove beaded porch ceiling with one coat of Natural Tone Redwood Olympic # 717 semi-transparent stain, finished off with 3 coats of satin finish urethane. Looking closely, you'll also notice the stained trim to the perimeter of the ceiling to match. Finally, take notice of the Bronze color seamless aluminum gutters and downspouts installed on this home. This particular color gives the appearance of a well-seasoned copper gutter - one that has been installed for dozens of years and has come to its full and stable patina finish. The house numbers were chosen in the same bronze finish to complete the look.
