If you’re trying to determine whether or not it’s time for a siding replacement and your home exterior has obvious signs of deterioration, the answer is: yes!
This Broomfield homeowner noticed some of the tell-tale signs of siding deterioration on her 1993 home. The original sheathing was a wood composite siding which, after nearly 30 years, was breaking down. Making her own home inspection, she noticed edge checking and swelling, which are very common signs that wood composite siding is failing. This is mostly due to moisture infiltration, which is absorbed by the soft wood composite material. Additionally, swift temperature changes in Colorado can contribute to warping and even cause siding planks to pull away from the wall as they expand and contract.
The customer knew that she needed to act quickly to prevent further damage to the home exterior since the sheathing was compromised. She contacted Bellwether and we drew up proposals for a full siding replacement so that we could safeguard the inside of her home without further damage to the exterior.
Bellwether recommended James Hardie fiber cement siding to protect the home from future siding destruction due to Colorado climate hazards.
Because the original wood composite siding had suffered the toll of time and weather, we wanted to help this customer invest in something that would hold up in these future conditions. James Hardie fiber cement siding is a composite of cement and cellulose fibers, designed to keep moisture out and to retain its shape even in extreme weather. Broomfield, CO is subject to Colorado’s typical extreme weather, but James Hardie fiber cement siding won’t crack, warp, peel, chip or fade in hot and cold temperatures, snow and ice, high winds, or baking sun.
Additionally, Broomfield, CO presents some potential wildfire risks during fire season. While the original wood composite siding would have put this Broomfield resident’s home at high risk in the face of fire, James Hardie fiber cement siding is resistant to spark and flame.
