What is fiber cement siding?

Fiber cement is a combination of cement, cellulose fibers, water, and silica. These materials are mixed, dyed, and pressed into boards in different styles and textures. This combination of materials makes fiber cement extremely sturdy and long lasting.

Bellwether recommends fiber cement siding products, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding, for Colorado homes because it is durable, resilient, versatile, and, when using our product offerings, is available in a large variety of colors, all with a long-term warranty.

Why is fiber cement siding so strongly recommended?

At Bellwether, we recommend fiber cement siding over other siding options because it is the best choice for Colorado homes, for a number of reasons. Not only does it add long-lasting beauty and value to your home, the strength and long-term durability of the materials is ideal for withstanding harsher Colorado weather and environmental concerns.

First and foremost, fiber cement siding is very resilient against natural elements, and most especially, fiber cement siding is fire resistant. For Colorado homeowners, and especially for those who own mountain homes, wildfire is a very real, seasonal concern. In using fiber cement siding, you add an extra layer of defense to protect your home from fire. In addition, these resilient materials are also designed to withstand hail, extreme temperatures, exposure to moisture, and the dry climate that comes with the hot Colorado sun.

Along these same lines, fiber cement siding is as durable as it is resilient. Not only does fiber cement siding safeguard your home from natural elements, it stands the test of time. The protective appeal of fiber cement siding will last for many years—and it will remain beautiful even after this long-term exposure.

What is best about fiber cement siding is that this resiliency and durability comes with little to no maintenance. Fiber cement siding maintains its color and style with little more than an occasional power washing, so you can simply enjoy the beauty and comfort of your home without concern for replacement or care.

What kinds of options come with fiber cement siding?

You don’t have to choose between function and style when it comes to fiber cement siding. There is a large and ever-expanding variety of brands, styles, and colors available on the market today.

Bellwether is a certified elite preferred James Hardie contractor, and we recommend James Hardie products, not only for their material superiority, but also for their style options. Virtually any color can be infused into your James Hardie fiber cement siding. Or choose from existing options such as Arctic White, Cobble Stone, Timber Bark, Pearl Gray, Evening Blue, or Mountain Sage. James Hardie offers two color collections, the Statement Collection and the Dream Collection, and both feature the James Hardie ColorPlus® technology. This technology utilizes a factory-controlled color application that is cured between coats, meaning the color will never crack, peel, or chip.

What’s more, James Hardie fiber cement siding products are offered with a 30-year product and 15-year finish warranty, so you can rest assured that your investment will yield the long-lasting and beautiful protection that comes with choosing fiber cement siding. Because of this guarantee and high standards, Bellwether recommends James Hardie fiber cement siding over other cement siding products, such as Certainteed Weatherboard.
