When it comes to new home siding, Denver CO residents have a number of factors to consider. Cost, appearance, amount of maintenance, and perhaps most important, how the siding will stand up to the Colorado climate over the years.
You probably wouldn’t be surprised to hear that over fifty percent of the homes in our state are still clad in traditional wood or cedar shingle siding. Wood siding, if well maintained, can last a good thirty years. But even so, when homeowners consider new siding in Denver, CO and across the state, they are seriously looking at other options and other siding materials.
Perhaps the most popular new siding across the country is vinyl. This product is affordable, does not require much maintenance, looks great for a long time, and does not require cutting down the forest. For new siding in Denver, CO, vinyl is a great choice. We are proud to offer Alside Premium Vinyl Siding, which comes in a variety of styles and can come with a grain that makes it look more like wood.

The other main type of siding that is rapidly gaining in popularity, particularly for upscale homes and developments, is fiber cement siding. This product is a real workhorse. It is durable, engineered for climate (meaning it can take anything Colorado can throw at it), and it is also non-flammable, which makes it a terrific choice in the mountain areas that come under threat of forest fires in the dry Colorado summers.
Here at Colorado Siding, we are proud to offer James Hardie fiber cement siding, the Cadillac of siding as far as we are concerned. It is made from sustainable materials, comes with long warranties, requires little maintenance over the decades, and makes any home look stunning. With this siding, Denver CO residents can even choose a product known as HardieShingle which has the look of cedar shingles, without the maintenance or the necessity for cutting down trees.
Steel siding is another contender, but it is generally used for commercial installations, not residential ones.
The siding a Denver CO homeowner chooses is important. After all, siding is a big, expensive purchase. You want to choose the best one for your needs, for your tastes, for your priorities, and of course, for your budget.
