Great Moments In Aluminum Siding Volume XVIII
Aluminum siding exposure is to a Greenpointer what arsenic poisoning was to a Victorian: after time (and repeated exposure) one builds up a resistance. Thereafter more siding (or arsenic) is necessary for the desired effect to take effect. I beg to differ. Sometimes “less” is more. I like my siding with a “twist”.
CASE IN POINT: This house in Sunset Park I call “Right Eye”.
This gem would be overlooked by a mere siding dilettante. Not me. I’m a professional.
What we have here is classic case of L.S.F.B.V.G.S.:
- Low siding (not related to low riding)
- Fedders boxes (in this case two)
- Vandalism with gratuitous signage
I’ll tackle the second point first.
This is classic Fedders heraldry. You don’t see beauties like this much anymore. Please download this image so your children (and grandchildren) can enjoy the glory that is nascent Fedderization.
Low siding, vandalism and gratuitous signage
Note how the heraldry motif (From the Fedders boxes) is carried over to the garage door. (Of questionable taste to some but consistent!) A garage door, I will add, that is obstructed by a great deal of aluminum siding. Whoever owns this house loves him (or her) some siding. They deserve to be an honorary Greenpointer!
The gratuitous signage is pure gravy.
Thank you Sunset Park for the best “fix” of aluminum siding goodness I have seen in months!
