Fiber Cement Siding for Colorado Properties

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing siding for your Colorado home is durability. You want to know that years down the road, your siding will still be in good condition and will provide you with a good ROI should you decide to sell your property. That’s why one of our top recommendations for is fiber cement siding for Colorado homes.

Fiber cement siding is not only incredibly beautiful but also remarkably strong and holds up well in areas that experience extreme weather. Pests, snow, UV rays, and hail are no match for its steadfast durability.

What Is Fiber Cement Siding?

Fiber cement siding created a stir in the siding industry when it was first introduced over a quarter of a century ago. Since then it has rapidly become the material of choice for high-end siding projects, beloved by architects, designers, installers and contractors, and the general public alike. Here at Colorado Siding, we are proud to be certified James Hardie® fiber cement siding contractors. 

But exactly what is fiber cement siding and why is everyone so excited about it? It’s made from a combination of cement and fibrous materials. The fibrous materials make it look like real wood while the cement makes it sturdy and impact resistant. Additionally, while wood has some serious disadvantages, fiber-cement siding offers a fantastic alternative to real wood and cedar siding options.

 Fiber Cement Siding Benefits for Colorado Properties

From stunning aesthetics to steadfast durability, fiber cement siding offers a range of benefits for Colorado homes and buildings.

  • Fire Resistance: With this mix of materials, fiber cement comes with a non-flammable, with a class 1A fire rating. It will not add any fuel to a fire, making it an outstanding choice for Colorado’s mountain communities that are under threat of wildfires in the state’s hot dry summers.
  • Durability: Strength and durability are two of fiber cement siding’s main advantages. A mixture of Portland cement, sand, and recycled wood fibers it is resistant to everything from woodpeckers to termites and hail to fire. 
  • Low Maintenance:  Compared to most other types of siding on the market, fiber cement is incredibly low maintenance.  The color-fast nature of this product means it won’t fade quickly under the intense Colorado sun.  And its resistance to hail means you likely won’t need to file a claim after one of our frequent hail storms.  
  • Beauty: The fiber cement siding industry, on the whole, has put in years creating beautiful styles that mimic the look of wood, cedar shingles, and more. The surface can be embossed with a wood grain or left completely smooth. The panels can be stained, painted, or left completely unfinished. The boards come in both vertical and horizontal styles, as well as shingles, soffit panels, and of course, matching or contrasting trim. With this level of customization, buyers can create beautiful designer looks for their homes or commercial buildings.

 Protect Your Home from Extreme Colorado Weather with Fiber Cement

Siding in Colorado is an important investment. With our harshly cold winters and dry, hot summers, the choice you make in siding could mean protecting your home from the many small natural disasters that occur in our state.

Heat & Freeze/Thaw Resistant

We’ve experienced damaging hail storms the last few years, and if you have vinyl siding, you may have experienced some serious destruction on your home. Vinyl siding is an affordable option that looks great, but it doesn’t stand up well to extreme weather conditions.  Fiber cement siding can protect your Colorado home from all of our ever-changing climates. It will not crack from hail, nor will it freeze and split from extremely cold winters or melt from the heat.

Fire Protection for Colorado Homes

One common problem with wood siding in Colorado is that it can be, and often is, damaged by woodpeckers. However, these pesky birds cannot break through this material. We have so many beautiful mountain areas in Colorado, and our dry winters often bring wildfires. Fiber cement siding is actually non-combustible, which means it won’t be nearly as damaged by fire. If you live in an area at risk for fires, investing in this product can mean giving you peace of mind, even if a fire hits.
