Bellwether is an all-seasons home exteriors company, and we love working with clients during the winter months when our open schedules allow us to complete jobs quickly.

Siding replacement might feel like a job for spring and summertime months, but at Bellwether, we like to take advantage of the beautiful Colorado weather and wide open schedules. We’re a year-round company. Following the holidays and on into our long winter months, homeowners tend to take a break from home improvement projects, and so our winter calendars are more open for full siding replacement projects.

These Fort Collins, CO homeowners contacted us in December, we were working on their siding replacement by January, and the whole project was wrapped by February. Our winter installation teams offer the same great service and expertise as any other time of year, but with fewer large-scale projects on the books, we can tend to our wintertime clients easily and efficiently.

Fiber cement siding is ideal for wintertime energy efficiency, and these Fort Collins, CO homeowners will see a difference in their energy costs thanks to James Hardie’s fiber cement siding guarantees.

After an assessment and proposal from our sales representatives, these homeowners in Fort Collins chose a complete siding replacement, from vinyl siding to fiber cement siding. James Hardie fiber cement siding offers all sorts of outstanding benefits to homeowners, both in curb appeal and home protection, and was definitely an upgrade from the original vinyl siding on this 1996 Fort Collins, CO home.

In the winter months in Colorado, with extreme temperatures sometimes dropping below freezing and the constant expectation of snow and ice, homeowners might notice how cold their home is, or maybe even sense a draft. With energy costs on the rise, heating a home that isn’t properly insulated or sided can become a great expense. By opting to reside their home in January, these homeowners got the job done fast and can enjoy the benefits of James Hardie fiber cement siding, including moisture protection and energy efficiency.

Fort Collins, CO homes are often built with vinyl siding, but fiber cement siding from James Hardie is the best siding option for homes on the front range.

Many new construction homes in Fort Collins, CO were built with vinyl siding, especially in the 1990s. However, vinyl siding isn’t designed to last, and certainly not in the weather elements that face homeowners in Fort Collins. After years in high winds, temperature changes, and baking sun, these customers knew that they needed a full siding replacement.

James Hardie fiber cement siding was the best choice because of its high-quality cellulose and cement composition, that was created to hold up in extreme weather conditions. Fiber cement lap siding will never crack, peel, chip, warp, or even fade, despite exposure to Colorado weather.

Most importantly, James Hardie fiber cement siding has a grade-A fire rating, meaning it is resistant to spark and flame. For Colorado homes along the Front Range, like this Fort Collins property, a fire protection guarantee is everything come wildfire season. Because these homeowners opted to replace their siding in the winter, they can enjoy energy efficiency in these colder months and are already safeguarded for the upcoming fire season.

James Hardie Color Plus technology offers rich, modern siding colors on a product that will remain brilliant and functional for years to come, backed by the best warranty protections in the industry.
