A James Hardie Color Plus fiber cement lap siding renovation saved this Littleton, CO home from further water damage.

Often we think of siding in terms of an exterior shell, meant mostly for appearances. But your home’s siding is meant to protect your home’s interior and exterior from environmental elements—especially moisture. Bryan Elsloo’s Littleton, CO home had suffered water damage due to the deteriorating masonite wood siding from 1973. Wood siding can be especially susceptible to weather and water damage.

When Bryan called Bellwether for a siding replacement, our inspectors discovered extensive water damage that was beyond repair. Now the siding replacement wasn’t just to improve the look of the Littleton, CO home, but also to save it from further water damage. Bellwether recommended James Hardie fiber cement lap siding because of its durability and resiliency against Colorado weather elements. Whether rain, snow, or ice, James Hardie fiber cement lap siding is designed to keep your home’s walls dry, and Bellwether installs lap siding so that the planks wick moisture away from the home with cascading effect.

Bellwether recommends James Hardie Color Plus lap siding for how it blends beauty and function on this Littleton, CO home.

Obviously, Bryan’s home needed a siding replacement to protect his home’s walls and interior. But James Hardie fiber cement siding is crafted to be as beautiful as it is resilient. The high quality composite of materials and color-plus technology yield a high-end finish, so that a sturdy, protected home is also a beautiful one. 

Bryan chose James Hardie Color plus lap siding in Night Gray with James Hardie Color Plus trim in Arctic White. This color scheme brightens the already clean lap siding with modern, neutral tones, and the contrast between the siding and the trim adds a pleasing depth effect to elevate the design.
