Superior Exterior Materials that We’ve Been Loving for Custom Homes on Long Beach Island

When our custom home buyers on Long Beach Island speak, we listen! And nothing holds truer than when we are helping them with customizing and selecting products and materials for their homes. No other selections seem as important as the exterior materials, and specifically the siding choices. Not only do these materials help protect the homes from the harsher elements that come with living by the ocean, but the homes look amazing and fit perfectly into the coastal vibe on LBI. What are these outstanding products you might ask? Let’s delve into the superior exterior materials that we’ve been loving for custom homes on Long Beach Island.

James Hardie© Plank Lap Siding

With a traditional look that is sleek and strong, the Hardie© Plank Lap siding is one of the most popular brands of siding in North America! There are a few options for this type of siding, but we find many of our homeowners are choosing the Select CedarmillTM because it features a natural cedar look which is so fitting for our coastal environment. With many colors available to choose from, the Plank Lap Siding classic shades are engineered with long-lasting ColorPlusTM Technology. This means the colors will last for years to come. Hardie© products are tested for worst-case scenarios: hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms, and more. The change of seasons can break down materials but, James Hardie© products are made of durable fiber cement and can withstand the elements of Mother Nature better than other products.

James Hardie©  Shingle Siding Products

Who doesn’t love a beautiful clapboard siding on a traditional coastal home? We sure do! But traditional cedar wood shingles require a ton of maintenance. So, for homeowners that are looking for that “Cape Cod” style for their new custom homes on Long Beach Island, we have the best of both worlds with the Hardie© Shingle Siding Products. With a choice of a straight edge panel or a staggered edge panel, you can’t go wrong. The straight edge panel offers a clean-lined look that adds refinement to a rustic designed home or can soften up the look of a contemporary home design. With many colors to choose from and the same durable fiber cement material as the plank lap style, these shingles are low-maintenance and will not need to be painted or stained like a traditional cedar wood shingle.

In addition to the plank or shingle siding products, there are a host of other siding choices as well as trim, vertical siding, soffit materials, and panels that James Hardie© offers. The possibilities for custom home buyers are endless with these products. And, as we are a custom home builder, we are happy to procure the styles, colors, and materials that our homebuyers are looking for. Custom means custom, and our team of home building professionals guide our buyers in the choices that will work for their home, style, and family.
