Charlie : Leslie in the Woodlands says, my home is 47 years old, and during Harvey, the frame supporting the windows leaked, causing the inside grout in the floor brick to bubble up. She said it’s the same pavers as the Galleria. So it’s obviously the nicer part of the Woodlands, where she’s living.
Tom: I haven’t been in the Galleria in 20 years.
Charlie : So, window frames must be replaced as the wood is rotten. What wood is the best replacement wood on the outside of the frame and support the windows. The inside frame next to it is number one redwood, which is being replaced also.
Tom: Well, it depends what the house looks like. If it’s a colonial house, or whatever it’s going to be a pine because it’s going to paint well, or a fir. Not pressure treated. It depends on the look of the house and how the trim goes together with it. If it’s more of a simple siding type product, then a Hardy siding is always a great product and it holds paint grip too. So, if you can replace the real wood with a Hardy that looks like the wood, and that’s what Hardy is all about, that of course is going to be the best, there’s no doubt about it.
