If you’re a resident of Boulder Colorado, siding is something you might have to purchase within the course of owning your own home. Of course, you already know how many different home styles there are. Traditional cedar siding, stucco, as well as contemporary metal siding are often seen scattered throughout the Boulder area. That is why our siding experts are familiar with various different kinds of siding materials and installation methods – so we can recommend the best one for your needs, and make sure it is installed optimally.
In Boulder Colorado, siding has some pretty stiff demands made on it by the Colorado climate. That includes wild winds with gale force strength, startling temperature changes throughout the course of a single day, big snows at times, and of course, perhaps the biggest challenge to the life of your siding, the omnipresent Colorado sunshine beating down on your home all year long. Plus, if your home is up in one of the gorgeous mountain canyons to the west of Boulder, you will have one other very important consideration when it comes to choosing new siding for your home. We’re talking about the summertime risk of wild fires.
So when choosing a siding product, you must consider climate, budget, and any other specific needs you have. Boulder Colorado siding projects are frequently done using fiber cement siding, because Boulder citizens are extremely environmentally conscious and they want the greenest products available. Fiber cement siding has been on the market for approximately 25 years, and it has become the product of choice for the green industry.
But what if you are a traditionalist, and your home has always had cedar shingles or classic wood siding? There is something about the look of wood that really seems to fit with the Rockies, isn’t there? However, traditional wood siding or cedar shingle siding is neither the most durable, the most green, nor the lowest in maintenance.
These days, Boulder Colorado siding can mimic the look of wood, while being made from more durable and maintenance free products . . . including siding materials such as steel and the aforementioned fiber cement, which are non-flammable and will not add fuel to a fire in the unfortunate instance that your home is in the path of a wildfire.
Which type of siding is right for you? For many in Boulder Colorado, siding is a major purchase. Homeowners need to do their due diligence and make sure they are getting the best product for their needs. One that will look gorgeous and protect their home from the elements for years to come.
