Several siding choices for your Littleton Home.

Post

In Littleton Colorado, siding is a big investment and an important buying decision. You want to purchase the product that will keep your home best protected from the elements for the longest possible period of time, all the while looking stylish and sharp.

Here at Colorado Siding, we have over two decades of experience in siding installations and in helping our Littleton clients choose the product that is the best fit for their needs, their home, and their budgets. There are a lot more choices to be made than just the color of the siding and whether the trim should match, or contrast. Of course, that is important too, because you want your home to reflect your tastes.

But how do you know that the Littleton Colorado siding project you choose is right for your home? How do you decide between the ever popular vinyl siding, the traditional wood siding, the classic cedar shingle siding, or even something that sounds like a thoroughly unusual choice, like steel siding?’

And then there’s the new kid on the block, the green and durable fiber cement siding, which took the building industry by storm about twenty five years ago and is still the darling of designers, architects, and builders across the country. Is that the perfect choice of material for Littleton Colorado siding?

Littleton Colorado Siding Challenges

In Colorado, siding must stand up to the elements, which can be quite extreme. If you have wood, the dry air and omnipresent sunshine can cause it to dry out and split, the snow can cause it to warp, and the wood itself can go up in flames in the case of a forest fire. The color can fade substantially over the years as well, requiring more frequent repainting than you might prefer.

But what if you simply love the look of wood, and want something with that look which will stand up to the climate and not give an inch? Did you know that James Hardie fiber cement creates a product that is green, made of sustainable materials, that requires very little maintenance?

Did you know that vinyl siding will not retain moisture, so it won’t dry out or rot, and can be installed to the exterior of your home for about half the cost of wood? It comes in a variety of styles and colors that will not need repainting anywhere near as quickly as wood will.

And what about stone siding? Do you want to spring for the real thing, or one of the faux sidings that gives you the look of stone for a fraction of the cost? Is stone a good choice for Littleton Colorado siding?
