The beachside Baywatch Condominiums building in Homer, Alaska, was originally constructed in 1980. On the exterior, the structure featured T1-11 wood siding that failed because of consistent exposure to sun, wind and moisture from the sea. The owners, Baywatch Condominium Association, were looking for a solution that solved the performance issues of the failed wood siding and would enhance the building’s overall appearance.
The Baywatch Condominium Association members contacted Mason’s Siding and Windows, Anchorage, Alaska, for a recommendation on siding solutions that would solve their current issues. After an initial presentation of siding options and several pre-work visits, the Mason’s Siding team recommended Everlast Advanced Composite Siding, deeming it the best exterior solution to stand up to the coastal Alaskan climate.
“Everlast is taking over coastal Alaska and Region 5 because it is the only siding product that holds up to the weather and climate,” says Dave Mason, vice president of Mason’s Siding and Windows. “The product is exploding in popularity here because there are major fiber cement and composite wood siding failures all over Alaska.”
The building is entirely clad in 10,700 square feet of Everlast siding in Harbor Blue, 6 7/8-inch planks.
“The work of Mason’s Siding transformed our condo building from looking like a rundown tenement into a prime beachside property,” says Skywalker Payne, treasurer, Baywatch Condominium Association. “All of the condo owners love the quality and appearance of the new Everlast siding renovation.”
Everlast is a next-generation composite siding product that possesses strength and durability. Its innovative construction process creates a lightweight plank that is durable, easy to install and water resistant. Everlast boasts an industry-leading warranty, ensuring that the planks will resist damage caused by termite attacks and will not rot or delaminate. It is further warranted against fading, peeling, flaking, cracking, rusting, blistering or corroding.
Owners of the condo units now enjoy an impressive renovated building that serves as a key development in the area. The Harbor Blue Everlast keeps with the theme of the beachside locale, allowing the condo to stand out as one of the top residential locations in Homer.
The Everlast installation at the Baywatch Condominiums was completed in June 2018.
