This week we will focus on the materials used on the exterior of 107 McCall Street, Greenville, SC. This charming craftsman cottage is getting a modern facelift with high quality, energy efficient materials. Let’s start with the roof and work our way down. The standing seamed metal roof is one of the most popular choices in the residential roofing industry. It is a maintenance free choice that adds beauty and will last for decades. Standing seamed metal roofs can also help improve the overall energy efficiency of a house.
The builder chose locally made VictorBilt Argonic Filled wooden windows with Low E double pane glass. They are true low maintenance, tilt out windows that have superior energy efficiency and exceed the U-value requirements for Energy Star.
The siding is authentic HardiePlank siding that creates a flat-out gorgeous look. It is backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal. It adds a unique, classic cottage look and the durability and low maintenance can’t be beat. The builder chose it for it’s longevity, appearance, fire resistance, storm resistance and energy efficient properties. HardiePlank is made out of fiberous cement and stands the test of time. It is rot and termite resistant and is resistant to warping and shrinking unlike other types of wood or vinyl siding.
Some of the exterior features will include a permeable side driveway, brick patio in the back made from the bricks that were originally from the home’s chimney and will be 9’x 12′ in a Herringbone pattern. The backyard will have a horizontal plank privacy fence with a gate. This will be a very low maintenance yard. The landscaping will incorporate a mix of mostly native plants with a nice tree, mulch, rocks, and ground cover in the front yard. Another interesting feature will be large granite stone that was uncovered in the yard that will be worked in as an eye-catching addition to the outdoor space. The inviting front porch and stately front door will add to the charm and curb appeal of this restored craftsman style cottage in Greenville’s wonderful, walkable downtown.
