Exterior help - advice on siding for bow with curve wall

last modified: 5 years ago

I need some advice for the exterior of my house.

We will be changing the trim around the front door and porch. Landscaping will be done after the house is sanded and painted - it's lead paint so it has to be tented so didn't make sense to plant. All of the windows in front of house will be replaced with the exception of the bow - the bow is a beautiful bronze window and I love it inside and out. The wall underneath the bow is curved - inside as well.

We have some rot on the front and obviously need to paint. I don’t love the vertical siding under the bow but not sure if this is due to the paint color and paint condition. Builder suggested to change all of the clapboard in the front to shingles but I think this might be too busy especially since the reveal on them would be 5” while the siding has 9”.
