Fiber Cement Siding Benefits 

Fiber Cement is a powerful material that stands strong against the Colorado weather. A premium product, it will last for years and stay looking beautiful. This is our most utilized siding material because it is so strong against everything the Colorado weather can throw at it. It also has many other benefits

  • Fire Resistance: With this mix of materials, fiber cement comes with a non-flammable, class 1A fire rating. 
  • Durability: A mixture of Portland cement, sand, and recycled wood fibers are 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.  
  • Beauty: Both in color and texture, James Hardie Fiber Cement has some of the most beautiful siding: vertical and horizontal styles, as well as shingles, and soffit panels.

LP® SmartSide® Benefits

This composite siding material is nearly as powerful as fiber cement but costs less. It is a great middle-of-the-road siding price-wise as it is more expensive than vinyl performs better too. With LP® SmartSide® siding for your Colorado home, you can enjoy:

Wood has been used as a siding for hundreds of years and as such has a place in our hearts. Especially good for homes and businesses in Colorado since we live in such a striking natural place.
