Fort Collins Siding: Which Kind is Right for Your Home?
In Fort Collins, siding has a variety of important jobs to do. It needs to properly protect and
insulate the home. It needs to shed water away from the house. It needs to stand up to anything
our sometimes intense Colorado climate can throw at it: hail, snow, gusting winds, endless sun,
dramatic temperature changes, and even fire! And of course, it has to maintain or even raise the
value of the home. Oh, and did we mention that in Fort Collins, siding is expected to look
beautiful for many years to come?
Although the main kind of siding found across Fort Collins and the surrounding areas has always
been wood, that is starting to change as homeowners update their homes and look for the benefits
some of the other siding materials can offer. Let’s take a look at the two most popular siding
materials currently on the market: vinyl and fiber cement.
1. Vinyl Siding: this is a durable and affordable Fort Collins siding option. Today’s vinyl
can look like wood, even available with a grain. It can well insulate a home, and will
need repainting. A low maintenance product, vinyl siding needs only to be washed down
with a hose every year or so. Vinyl siding is an excellent choice for rental properties, fix

2. Fiber Cement Siding: this is the premier siding material available today. It’s made of
sustainable materials, and will not rot, dry out, crack, peel, chip, or be eaten by termites
the way that wood can. It’s also non-flammable, making it a great Fort Collins siding
choice for any mountain areas that come under threat of wildfires during Colorado’s dry,
By the way, fiber cement siding by the James Hardie Company is “the” choice for homes
above $250,000. It will not just maintain but actually raise the value of the home,
providing more ROI than even the addition of another bathroom.
