Why James Hardie Siding For Your Fort Collins Home

The James Hardie Fiber Cement Advantage

Siding as you are sure to know is a great way to make a statement with your house and keep it looking sharp for years if not decades. In Fort Collins especially, there are limitations as to what type of siding will perform right and look right in this setting.  While wood is inviting and vinyl cost effective, new materials like James Hardie Fiber Cement are changing the game for good. You can say goodbye to the constant maintenance and repainting with this fantastic siding innovation.

Fiber cement siding from James Hardie® is great because it has a much nicer appearance than vinyl like wood but without the disadvantages of wood siding.

Some other benefits of James Hardie Fiber Cement:

Fiber cement siding does not ignite when exposed to extreme heat or direct flame, does not rot when exposed to moisture and does not allow for the nesting of pests–all of which destroy traditional siding. Additionally, it is us colorfast against all the elements, the least of which–the sun
Since it is five times thicker than vinyl, fiber cement siding looks more like painted wood. It has deep, authentic looking wood grain especially integral to preserving the aesthetics of historic homes. Also, it requires minimal upkeep and because of its ColorPlus technology.
Wood is a green building choice because it can easily be grown. Additionally, it is biodegradable. The synthetics like vinyl take hundreds of years to break down, making it very bad for the environment. Fiber cement, on the other hand, is composed of inert materials like water, cellulose fibers, sand, and cement. All of which are sustainable and do not release hazardous waste into the environment.
