Denver-area homeowner replaces aged wood shake siding with James Hardie fiber cement lap siding to protect their home against the Colorado climate.

This home’s original wood shake siding was no match for the Colorado weather common to the Denver area. Wood siding is susceptible in extreme temperatures or exposure to snow, ice, rains, and high winds. It will easily show its age and soon become unsafe. To better protect their home from the climate, this Denver homeowner chose to upgrade the wood siding to James Hardie fiber cement lap siding. 

Fiber cement siding is a composite of cement and cellulose fibers pressed into planks built for any extreme climate. Fiber cement siding will never split, crack, or peel, even when exposed to extreme weather or Colorado’s baking sun. Unlike wood shake siding, James Hardie fiber cement siding will protect this Denver home for a lifetime.

This newly safeguarded Denver home exudes charm with a modern twist, thanks to James Hardie Color Plus technology in Arctic White with Iron Gray trim.

James Hardie fiber cement lap siding is the ideal siding material to protect a Denver home from Colorado weather, but it is also built for beautiful home designs. James Hardie fiber cement siding products are treated with Color Plus technology so that color choices are vibrant and rich; and just like the siding material holds up under Colorado weather elements, so does the color. Color Plus technology warranties through James Hardie guarantee a home’s color for at least 15 years, and the siding is backed for 30 years.

This homeowner opted for lap siding in Arctic White for a crisp, charming home exterior. Finished off with James Hardie fiber cement trim in Iron Gray, the result is a high-contrast, modern take on more classic charm, and this home pops from the street view.

Pella 250 vinyl windows upgrade this Denver home exterior to ultimate modern beauty and high-functioning protection in Colorado weather.

For greater home exterior protection, the customer also opted to replace the windows. Choosing new windows during your siding replacement is a big undertaking, but when it comes to installation, it makes a lot of sense. Not only can we install the windows at the perfect moment in the process, customers can know for certain that their new windows will be tightly fitted and sealed to keep the Colorado weather out and maintain a comfortable climate inside.

This Denver customer chose Pella 250 vinyl windows in white, adding to the clean appearance of the fiber cement siding in Arctic White. Everything ties together with the Iron Gray trim around the windows.
