James Hardie Siding Protects Against Hail Better Than Traditional Siding

When it came to siding for your home, there used to be only a few options. Of those, wood and shingle siding used to be very popular here in Colorado, especially in mountain communities, but they had (and still have) a lot of disadvantages: rotting, splitting, drying out, pest damage, frequent need for repainting, and hail damage. Unfortunately, here in Colorado’s beautiful and dramatic Front Range, hail damage is a biggie and definitely something to be considered when you decide to add or replace your home’s siding.

With all the new, cutting edge, high performance technology currently used in building materials, home owners have many new options, including James Hardie’s fiber cement siding that resists all of the above mentioned siding issues, including siding hail damage. Who wants to spend their time or money replacing or repairing siding damaged by a hail storm, eaten by termites, loosened by gale force winds, buckled by the cycles of moisture and dryness, or faded by Colorado’s ongoing UV assault via the 300+ days of sun a year we get here?

Why not take a big load off your mind with James Hardie, and stop worrying about hail damage to your home’s siding?


Siding hail damage, repair options

The recent spate of hail storms here in Colorado this past Memorial Day Weekend are nothing new. Intense hail storms are part of the Colorado climate, from springtime to the fall, but these last storms were particularly violent, no doubt the bane of insurance companies’ existence. The large chunks of hail plummeted down with real force, piled up quickly, and caused significant damage to Colorado residents’ vehicles, spring flowers and vegetable gardens, and even caused serious damage to the roofs and the siding on Colorado residents’ homes.

If you had damage to your home’s traditional siding, repairing the hail damage may be on your mind. We mention traditional siding, because James Hardie fiber cement siding is all but impervious to hail damage. If you need siding repairs after the recent hail storms, we’d be willing to bet your siding is a different, more old fashioned type.

So whether you are thinking of having your siding’s hail damage repaired, or you are are considering new siding altogether, siding that is more durable, needs less maintenance, offers more insulation, and flat out looks fantastic for many years to come—we suggest James Hardie’s products.
