Fiber Cement Siding for Denver Area Homes
Fiber Cement Siding’s Makeup
Fiber cement siding is one of the toughest materials available to protect a home exterior. Its makeup includes cement, sand, and cellulose fibers. It shields your home from moisture penetration, fires, and all types of weather.
The Preferred Brand of Fiber Cement Siding
James Hardie is the most popular brand of fiber cement siding. It covers over 8,000,000 homes throughout America, and for good reason. Its beauty, durability, and high performance attract homeowners to this outstanding siding product.
Fiber Cement Siding’s Endurance
When you choose to reside your home with fiber cement siding, you invest in siding that lasts up to 50 years. While other siding products need to be replaced after 20-30 years, fiber cement siding won’t need to be replaced for 50 years as long as it was installed properly and is maintained well.
Fiber Cement Siding Benefits
While there are pros and cons to every siding material, fiber cement siding has many more features in the pros area than they do cons. Here are some of the qualities homeowners love about this type of siding:
Fiber cement siding is thick and easily mimics the look of wood siding. In fact, from the street you can’t tell it isn’t wood siding! It can also mimic other siding materials including stucco (minus the maintenance and repairs stucco requires). The beauty of fiber cement siding is unmatched by other siding materials. It will boost your home’s curb appeal and increase the value of your home, making it attractive to homebuyers when it comes time to sell.
Fiber cement siding simply needs to be washed twice a year with a garden hose and a medium bristle nylon brush. Its caulking should periodically be checked to keep your home well sealed. It needs to be painted periodically depending on the type of finish you invested in when it is installed.
The James Hardie company created ColorPlus® technology. Choose from a color palette that was handpicked by designers and takes the guesswork out of color choice for your home exterior. Color is baked on in the factory and cured between coats to ensure it adheres optimally to your siding. It’s fade resistant and UV resistant, so the color you choose will stay intact on your siding. It’s warrantied for 15 years, so you won’t have to repaint it as often as other finishes. The Hardie company also offers pre-primed siding if you prefer to paint it after installation.
The tough job of siding is that it needs to stand up to the elements 24/7. Denver homeowners know they need siding that will stand the test of time and the harsh winters Denver experiences. Fiber cement siding withstands high winds, snow storms, hail, and more. In fact, the James Hardie company studied the long-term impact of weather on siding based on where the home was located in the country.
The HardieZone system was created so you can invest in siding that was made for your specific region of the country. Engineered for climate, this outstanding siding will withstand even the toughest of weather conditions and still give your home the protection it needs. The HZ5 product withstands cold, snow, ice, and worry—the perfect combination for Denver homes. The HZ10 products withstand blistering sun, hurricane force winds, and sheets of rain.
Fiber cement Board siding won’t contribute to a fire. Its non-combustible nature makes it a good safety feature for your home. Some insurance companies give a discount to homeowners who choose this make of siding.
The James Hardie company offers the most comprehensive warranty in the industry. Their 30-year non-prorated, transferable warranty gives you confidence in your investment. As long as the Hardie siding is installed by a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor the warranty is protected.
