Woodville, WI Historic Farmhouse Renovation

Last spring, we received the below message from a Western Wisconsin homeowner.

“We’re interested in siding our large 100 year old farmhouse, a small back deck, rain gutters on part of the house, refacing the porch and replacing windows. Andy, HELP! Send a good teacher!”

The woman who had sent the email was named Roxi and she happened to be one of Andy Lindus’ favorite high school teachers. Upon visiting her home, our team agreed that the siding was in dire need of replacement. It had started chipping off and was no longer doing a sufficient job of offering protection.
lead paint When it was discovered that the home’s preexisting siding contained lead paint, our team utilized additional measures to ensure the safety of both them and the environment. As can often be the case, damage was discovered during the siding tear-off process. Rotten wood was discovered and one of the home’s studs needed to be reinforced as a result.

In order to maintain the home’s historic charm, we suggested that the home’s exterior color remain white. We suggested a siding reveal of three inches, something that would have been customary 100 years ago. While LP® SmartSide® wouldn’t have been available to the original homeowners, we felt it was the material for protecting the home, moving forward. That’s because it offers better moisture protection and is more durable than cement board. It also has a longer lifespan than ordinary vinyl siding.siding installation

On this project, we found it really important to take a hard look at the home’s building envelope and offer solutions for increased energy efficiency. For starters, there were some walls within the home that contained minimal or no insulation. We utilized blow-in insulation in sidewalls and upgraded the attic insulation. New energy-efficient doors and SeasonGuard windows were installed to give the home a tighter seal, ultimately resulting in lower energy costs.

To ensure optimum rainwater management, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters were installed. Roxi opted for white gutters in order to blend in with the home’s new siding. The optical effect is similar to that of crown molding. What’s better yet is that they are guaranteed never to clog and if they do, it’s one of our team members with proper safety equipment and training addressing the situation. The finish on the paint is also guaranteed to never chip, crack or peel. A perk of these warranties is that that they are transferable to the next owner of your home.

Following the completion of the project, Roxi has the following to say, “These guys are AMAZING. Unbelievably conscientious. They were thoughtful and cared about the project.”

"I can’t rave enough about the customer service! I expressed my curiosity of an estimate.  Dylan made the process very explainable and broke it down to me in levels of importance first and what we need to do in the future.  I am looking forward to doing my home improvement w/ a business that understands my needs and is willing to work with me.  Thanks Lindus Construction!"
