Victorian Home Exterior Help
For the past four years, we have lived in an 1892 Queen Anne Victorian home in Central Wisconsion. In June, we suffered a hail storm and are now faced with lots of decisions about what to do with the exterior of our home. We currently have boring brown aluminum siding and white aluminum trim that was put on by previous owner in the mid 80s. So, with some assistance with insurance, we have an opportunity to recreate a more authentic look for our home. We are considering cement fiber board for the siding but locally are having a difficult time finding contractors who want to tackle this. Our roof needs to be replaced and our porch is in need of repair/paint. I'm looking for resources that would guide us on this journey and would love to connect with anyone else out there who has done a similar project from roof down. There are so many things to decide and it can be overwhelming to make it all come together. Help!
I would love to post a couple photos of past and present but not sure how to do that.
