This Littleton home had wood siding from 1991 and was severely damaged on the north exterior wall, so the homeowners knew they had to replace siding.
These Littleton, CO homeowners were great caretakers of their 1991 property and noticed damage to the north wall of their wood composite lap siding. In Colorado, we know about the “north face”, and it is not uncommon for snow and ice to build up along the north edge of a property, leading to long-term moisture damage. The northern wood composite siding was weakened and showing obvious signs of damage, so the homeowners acted and called Bellwether for a repair.
But wood composite siding is susceptible to damage on all sides, and after two decades of exposure to Colorado’s intense climate of high winds, hail and snow, and baking sun, there was more siding damage than was available to the naked eye. Wood composite siding easily absorbs moisture, and over time, this causes soft spots, bubbles, and potential splitting or cracking. Bellwether knew it was time for a full siding replacement, and these Littleton homeowners were ready to make that investment.
James Hardie fiber cement siding is a sensible siding material for all Colorado homeowners, and especially in Littleton where weather and fire risk run high.
Fiber cement siding is an ideal siding product for Colorado homeowners looking to protect their home against the climate’s hazards. Unlike wood composite siding, James Hardie fiber cement siding is designed to stave off weather damage. It won’t absorb moisture, and it will never crack, bubble, or peel, not even after two decades of exposure to the climate. Instead, the high-functioning composition of cement and cellulose fibers keeps moisture out and hardens the home against other damaging weather patterns.
