James Hardie is a popular option for Englewood Colorado siding purchases.

James Hardie siding has built a reputation as the best siding around and Englewood, and residents have taken notice. When it comes to protecting your home from the elements in Colorado, no siding does it better than James Hardie.

Here’s why. Bluntly put, Colorado’s climate is tough on homes, particularly the exteriors. The sun bakes down on them from a high elevation, the low humidity is very drying, and the rapid changes in temperature – sometimes to the tune of forty or even fifty degrees in a day means the siding on an Englewood home really takes a beating. And that’s not even considering the gale force gusts or silver dollar sized hail these homes are sure to receive as well.

James Hardie is the perfect choice for Englewood Colorado siding because it is engineered for climate. Meaning it will withstand whatever mother nature throws at it, without chipping, fading (paint color warranted for up to 15 years!), drying out, or becoming dislodged in a heavy storm.

Now, as for that last bit, obviously it depends on the installation. Colorado Siding is the main installer of James Hardie fiber cement siding in this area, and our installers are specially trained to work with this amazing product. When properly installed, it is actually able to withstand category 5 hurricane winds. Luckily, we don’t get storms like that here, but our weather is extreme enough.


Unlike wood, the James Hardie fiber cement siding doesn’t dry out. It isn’t even remotely appealing to termites, woodpeckers, or any other pests. And it is non-flammable. That means in the case of a fire, the siding itself will not burn, therefore it will not add any fuel to the fire.

When it comes to new home siding, Englewood Colorado residents would do well to seriously consider James Hardie. As a home improvement investment, it actually raises the value of your home and provides more ROI than even something like adding on a new bathroom.

Plus, it’s beautiful. It comes in various styles and color pallettes, and even can be purchased in a style that resembles wood or cedar siding. But of course, it won’t split, peel, crack, dry out, rot, be eaten, or burn. It also requires next to no maintenance throughout the years, making it a superior choice for Englewood Colorado siding.
