Choosing the Right Siding For Your Colorado Home

Choosing the Right Siding

Replacement siding can be an important investment for your home, so you want to make sure you choose the right siding option. With so many products on the market today, it’s important to be diligent when it comes to learning about the pros and cons of each. Making an informed decision is the best way to get the most out of your investment!

Siding Product Options

When it comes to siding in Colorado, there are three main options for homeowners; wood, vinyl, or fiber cement. All three of these options offer some great benefits, so you’ll want to learn about each and decide what priorities you have for your own project. Here are some details about these products that you’ll want to know:

Wood siding: Wood is often considered the best looking option, but it comes with a great deal of maintenance over time, and it is one of the most expensive initial investments as well. The possibility of warping and rotting is great, and wood requires frequent refinishing to maintain that beautiful look.

Vinyl siding: Vinyl is one of the most popular options for homeowners in Colorado. It offers excellent insulation for a home, and it is available in a wide array of color and style finishes that won’t need much maintenance. Many people don’t like the idea, however, of putting plastic on their home. Vinyl siding can be damaged by hail or by exposure to extreme heat.

Fiber cement siding: Fiber cement is a newer option for Colorado homeowners, and while it is a middle-range priced option, it is well worth the investment. Fiber cement won’t ever rot, warp, freeze, or crack due to our ever-changing weather, and with a baked-on finish, you won’t have to worry about frequently refinishing. Fiber cement won’t be damaged by hail, extreme heat, wood peckers, and it even stands up against fires.
