New home siding is a big, important purchase. Many people have never actually purchased new siding and don’t know the first thing about it. They quickly become aware that there are a variety of different materials siding is made from, and they will probably hear about the “new kid” on the siding block, fiber cement.
We are big proponents’ of one particular manufacturer of fiber cement siding. With James Hardie, Colorado homeowners can clad their homes in something that is engineered for climate.
What does this mean, exactly? Well, let’s take a look at the Colorado climate, and then you’ll see just what your siding is up against. The purpose of siding is to protect and insulate your home from the outside elements, while looking great for as many years as possible.
When it comes to fiber cement siding by James Hardie, Colorado residents can rest assured that their siding is built to withstand our climate of extremes. You know, those fifty or even sixty degree temperature swings in the course of one day. Those crazy summer hailstorms that spring up out of nowhere, bombarding your streets, your cars, and your homes with hail that can have the force and do the damage of a weapon. And how about the dry, dry air and the over three hundred days of sunshine, beating down on your home and its siding all four seasons of the year?
So if a siding was engineered for climate like the product by James Hardie, Colorado homes would be protected from all those elements. This siding is incredibly durable, it laughs in the face of hail, stays strong under the blazing of the sun, and will not dry out, rot, or even be of any interest to the little critters that love to nestle into wood, such as pesky woodpeckers and home-eating termites.
With James Hardie, Colorado mountain communities should rejoice as well. Every year, our state seems to be besieged with wildfires that cause untold property damage, loss of life, and the need to evacuate, thereby turning one’s life inside out. Of course, James Hardie fiber cement siding cannot prevent forest fires. However, unlike the traditional wood siding or cedar shingle siding which is so popular up in our mountain communities, this siding is nonflammable. It will not burn, so it will not add any fuel to a fire should one unfortunately come your way. After installing fiber cement siding by James Hardie, Colorado homeowners can rest a little easier knowing they have purchased the best, most durable, most green, and least maintenance-requiring siding product on the market.
