For homes in Edgewater Colorado, siding is a large and important purchase. Residents are advised to learn as much as they can about siding, since many of them have never had the opportunity to purchase it before and might not be aware of all the different options.
For your clarity, we’ll run down the different choices for Edgewater Colorado siding, along with some of the pros and cons of each choice.
1. Wood or cedar shingle/shake siding: In Edgewater Colorado, siding of this type is the most traditional choice. Wood siding still covers over fifty percent of the homes in Colorado today, and is the most traditional choice. It is durable, even lasting up to thirty years with the proper maintenance. However, since we mentioned maintenance, we need to also mention that this type of siding requires more maintenance than the others. The paint will fade in the sun. Forests do have to be cut down to create it. Insects and woodpeckers are interested in attacking it. And of course, like all wood products, it is highly flammable as well as prone to rotting and drying out in the sun.
2. Vinyl siding: When it comes to residential projects in Edgewater, Colorado Siding installs a lot of this material. It is durable, easy to install, the colors are lovely and lasting, and it is the most affordable option of the three choices we will be discussing today. Today’s vinyl siding will cost about half of what the same project done with wood siding will cost.
3. Fiber cement siding: this product is made of sustainable materials, it’s incredibly durable, and keeps its colors long after wood has faded to a barely recognizable shadow of its original self. Perfect for homes in Edgewater Colorado, siding of this type is also non-flammable, engineered to withstand anything the Colorado climate can throw at it, and gorgeous. Our fiber cement siding clients frequently remark how much newer and more upscale their homes look with this product. It can be made to resemble wood siding or even cedar shingle siding and comes in a stunning array of colors that are baked in for longevity.
