“We were asked to add curb appeal to a 1970s house in Rockville,” says Mike Winn of Winn Design+Build. “It had recently undergone an interior renovation, but the outside was still dated and rundown.” He and his team addressed elements that were in disrepair and gave the exterior a fresh new look. Among the changes: new cladding (top), a rebuilt carport (above) and a remodeled deck off the rear of the house (left).
|The siding, made of T1-11 plywood, suffered from wood rot and holes from rodents and other wildlife.||Winn combined low-maintenance siding products including wood-look Trespa Pura horizontal siding and Nichiha, a cementitious panelized siding from Japan that requires no painting. Exterior trim is made of Azek and cedar.|
|The carport was cramped and dilapidated, without room for storage.||The carport was reframed, its concrete slab modified to accommodate steps, a side walkway and a storage shed. Latticework provides privacy and a decorative element.|
|The upper-level back deck was falling apart, and some windows were leaking and needed to be replaced.||The deck was partially rebuilt using composite decking. Pella windows from the Architect Series were installed.|
