Siding Can Make Your Brownstone Colorful!
Many people don’t think of exterior siding when they think of brownstones. Historically, the exterior of these row houses are usually brick and faced with brownstones, which are a type of sandstone, which was affordable in the 1860s when many of these homes were built. They also reflected a popular architectural style of the time known as Gothic Revival.
But 150 years later, aesthetics have changed and there’s a movement away from houses that look identical. James Hardie Siding from Good Guys can give you a colorful exterior to your brownstone and Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology is resistant to UV rays.
