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.

Fiber cement siding products, such as Nichiha fiber cement siding, is ideal for Colorado homes because it is the most durable and resilient siding material, but also is versatile and beautiful, so that a home’s exterior is both appealing and functional in the Colorado climate. Originally introduced to the market as a commercial-grade product, Nichiha fiber cement is generally thicker.

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, Nichiha 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 seasonal concern. In using fiber cement siding, you add an extra layer of defense to protect your home from fire. In addition, Nichiha’s fiber cement siding is also designed to withstand hail, extreme temperatures, moisture intrusion, and exposure to the baking Colorado sun and its related dry climate. Nichiha’s fiber cement siding products are performance engineered for moisture management and long-lasting design.

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 to the Colorado climate.

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.

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.

Nichiha Fiber Cement offers many different style options, including wood, stone, stucco, an brick, all crafted from high-quality fiber cement, but texturized and finished to meet your design goals. Nichiha offers some of the more creative style options available, making it it appealing to design-oriented homeowners, those these options do come at a higher price point. These various styles can be installed using multiple joinery techniques, to achieve a customized look, with either vertical or horizontal planks. And Nichiha Fiber Cement is available in many different colors, from pleasing neutral tones, to vibrant blues and reds.

Should Bellwether install my fiber cement siding?

Fiber cement siding is a product we believe in, and we take the installation process seriously so that it performs at peak expectation and protects your Colorado home.

We will always adhere to the Nichiha’s best practices as the minimum standard for our installation procedures. This includes a guarantee that your fiber cement siding is properly installed with an expertly designed moisture management system. We utilize flashing, moisture barriers, drainage holes, and careful caulking to create a barrier between the living spaces of your home and the outside environment so that your home is free from moisture intrusion. Nichiha Fiber Cement is fabricated with a built-in rain screen, predisposing it to block moisture.

Our expert designs work hand-in-hand with industry standards for the best results from your Nichiha fiber cement siding. Because Nichiha fiber cement is generally thicker than other fiber cement siding options, it is important to consider the installation process, particularly on residential properties. Our designers are prepared to navigate such considerations and trim transitions, so that this extra thickness serves as a benefit rather than challenging the installation process.

Because of its stability and long-lasting durability against even the harshest Colorado climates, Bellwether is proud to recommend fiber cement siding for most Colorado homes. We take pride in backing this product recommendation with our highly-skilled installation and design processes, leaving you with a beautifully finished, comfortable, and fully-protected home.
