This Longmont homeowner was interested in replacing all of their vinyl siding with durable and long-lasting fiber cement, but was concerned about timing and cost.

Siding replacement is a big investment of time and money, and often, homeowners are concerned that they won’t be able to plan for or afford a home exterior upgrade to fiber cement siding. But this Longmont homeowner knew that vinyl siding was not the best option for their home, so they reached out to Bellwether just to explore options.

Often, people forget that Bellwether works year-round on home exteriors, and when we can schedule projects for the winter months, we’re able to save our customers time and money. By running the numbers on this Longmont home for a siding replacement in January, right after the holidays, we were able to reach a project proposal that worked financially. 

We also offer many different financing options, and these plans make sense when it comes to the return on investing in new siding. Fiber cement siding will last a lifetime, with very low maintenance, meaning that, in the end, we saved the homeowner more time and money year-over-year by replacing the vinyl siding with James Hardie fiber cement lap siding.

Fiber cement siding was a much better siding material for this home than vinyl siding, to protect the house against Colorado weather elements and the risk of wildfires in Longmont.

Vinyl siding is pretty common in some Colorado suburbs, especially those built in the 70s. But vinyl siding doesn’t make sense in the Colorado climate, and this 1974 Longmont home was showing a lot of wear and tear, which was why the homeowner was exploring options for full siding replacement.

James Hardie fiber cement siding is highly durable in the Colorado climate, withstanding extreme temperatures, high winds, snow and ice, and even baking sun. Despite these weather elements, James Hardie fiber cement siding remains in-tact and never fades, while keeping moisture and cold air out for a lifetime.

Most importantly, especially in Longmont, CO, fiber cement siding is resistant to spark and flame, adding a resilient shell to protect against wildfires common in the area. By making the investment in replacing vinyl siding with James Hardie fiber cement, this homeowner will enjoy a beautiful, safe home for years to come.
