Fresh Look

Winn Design+Build imbues a faded Rockville contemporary with curb appeal galore

Fresh Look - “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).

Then Now
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.
