What comes to mind, when you think of the word home? A safe haven. Your favorite place. A house that, when you drive up your street, makes you stop, admire, and love it before you go inside. And two different sentiments create this feeling of home: home is a beautiful place that feels like an expression of self, and it is a safe, comfortable space.

At Bellwether, we love the idea that beauty and function work together, hand-in-hand. A well-made home is sturdy and protected, and that does not mean that home has sacrificed beauty and design. Our James Hardie Elite Preferred installation experts have the skills and expertise to craft solid, dependable structures comprised of superior materials and methods that protect Colorado homes from environmental elements such as wildfire, hail and ice, snow and rain, and baking sun. Bellwether also has an in-house design team, and we all work together to take these high-performance expectations and bring them to life in homes that rich in color, interesting in texture, and highly-designed so that you have the most eye-catching home in the neighborhood.

What sets Bellwether apart?

High-quality materials

Quality homes are built from quality materials. As a James Hardie Elite Preferred contractor, we are committed to using high-performing materials for siding, trim, soffit, flashing, and weather barriers. We guarantee that our siding installations include an expertly designed moisture management system. Bellwether-installed siding creates a barrier between the living spaces of your home and the outside environment, to keep your home comfortable and dry. A professional moisture management system includes flashing, moisture barriers, drainage holes, and careful caulking to seal against rainwater and other elements.

Proper installation with high-quality materials is directly correlated to fantastic design because these best practices preserve, not only the functional integrity of your home’s exterior, but also its enduring beauty.

A wide variety of siding profiles and colors

Whatever high-quality materials you choose for your home, each option offers exciting and creative stylistic opportunities. You can work with our design team to assess your aesthetic goals, environmental concerns, and financial needs to draw-up a unique plan for your home’s design.

In fact, at your initial consultation we will photograph your home and connect these images with an application called Hover. By utilizing this technology, we can create 3-D renderings of your home, and explore the wide variety of siding profiles, textures, and colors digitally. This modern means of design planning, takes you to the corners of your imagination and covers the fullness of your design options.

Bellwether siding experts use various techniques for home siding. A popular vertical siding profile is board and batten, where the butt joints of each panel are covered with a thin strip, usually 1-2 inches wide. Another popular siding profile is the clapboard method, called lap siding, in which planks are laid horizontally across the wall, starting from the bottom and building up, the board below overlapped by the board above. Lap siding can also include cottage or Dutch lap and nickel gap, more commonly known as ship lap. The shingle/shake—shakes are split and shingles are sawn smooth—method cuts and tapers wood, vinyl or fiber cement shingles in an overlapping pattern. For a shadowing effect, consider a v-groove siding system, and for a more rustic style, consider a channel rustic siding option. Choosing a certain joinery technique or a specific siding profile is a matter of aesthetic taste, and each method offers its own functional benefits. When properly installed by our Bellwether siding installation team, all techniques are designed to protect your home from Colorado’s harsh elements.

All of these joinery techniques are also available in a broad range of materials. Certainly our experts will recommend that you side and finish your home in sustainable and resilient products, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding, which defends your home from Colorado climate concerns, like wildfire or extreme temperatures. If you are unable to install fiber cement siding on your home and would like to explore other siding options, our Bellwether experts have extensive knowledge of other siding materials, including wood siding, metal siding, and vinyl siding.

Once you’ve chosen your siding profile and material, you’ll also be able to select from an incredible collection of colors. James Hardie fiber cement siding is available in the James Hardie Color-Plus Statement Collection or can be infused with any of more than 700 curated shades in the Dream Collection. What we prefer about the Color-Plus Statement Collection its specially engineered in-factory pre-painting process, which colors your fiber cement siding with automobile-grade enamel, built to last, even in the Colorado climate, for years and year, backed by its 15-year warranty. With no concern for fading, cracking, peeling, or bubbling, you can choose a rich and vibrant color to beautify your home for decades.

Unique eye for design

By employing such high-quality materials with so many options, the Bellwether design and installation experts have honed a unique eye for design. We understand that your needs are specific to neighborhood, environment, financial concerns—and we can craft design plans that take all of this into consideration.

When it comes to high design, subtle notes can have great effect. Our design experts love to study the architectural features of your home, and work to bring them out for a style that is wholly you. For example, if your home has prominent gable or a largely featured wall, consider the high-impact effect of choosing a different color or joinery pattern in that area. Or, if you like the look of wood on luxury mountain homes, achieve a similar look by selecting some of our imitation wood-grain products to highlight your entryway or another architectural element.

These small, but popping details, combined with a professionally-installed system of siding, trim, and soffit, will culminate into the beautiful, impression-making home of your dreams. The Bellwether approach to design, differentiates us from other home exterior companies. We take seriously, the process of home renovation and remodel, and fit high-quality products together properly so that your home is well-made—and looks it. The Bellwether difference is peak performance at high design. You’ll love the way your home looks and can rest assured it will be built to protect your family for years to come.
