Why is James Hardie Shingle Siding rising in popularity all over Colorado? Modern designed homes are being built all over the place. These homes often incorporate modern materials and modern lines and architectural features. However, these kinds of modern styles aren’t for everyone. Many people prefer the look of an older home, especially the look of a traditional Colorado shingled home, the kind you saw all over the state years ago.
Of course, many people want to have the most modern, green materials in their home siding . . . but they feel like it’s a tradeoff, because they really prefer the look of wood. If you are on board with the new materials being used in today’s siding, such as the environmentally friendly fiber cement siding that has taken the building industry by storm the last two decades . . . but maybe you are not into the modern designs then James Hardie shingle siding might be for you.
Like all of their siding products, James Hardie Shingle Siding is made from fiber cement. It’s made from sustainable materials. It’s weather/climate resistant. It is even non-flammable, meaning in the case of a fire it will not burn nor add any fuel to it, so it might just save your home. But this product is manufactured in a shingle style that looks like the wood shingles you love.
Now, you might be wondering what’s wrong with traditional wood shingles. After all, they were used for hundreds of years. But they are expensive, they require the chopping of many trees, and once installed, these traditional shingles are prone to dry, rot, split, crack, burn, be eaten by insects, be nested in by woodpeckers, and generally require a whole lot of maintenance to keep them looking good.
James Hardie Shingle Siding is prone to none of the above, and generally requires next to no maintenance at all. And it looks fantastic. It provides the look of cedar shingles, comes in a variety of gorgeous colors, and you can even have it installed in staggered rows, to really give that rustic look you are after.
If you haven’t heard of James Hardie, we will only say this: Adding their siding to your home provides a better return on investment than even the addition of another bathroom does. Enough said?
