James Hardie Color Plus fiber cement lap siding is a better option than the old wood composite siding on this Parker, CO home.

When these Parker, CO homeowners contacted Bellwether, they knew they needed a complete exterior rehaul on their lovely Midcentury style home. Built in 1981, the original siding was wood composite. Wood siding isn’t built to last a lifetime to begin with, and in the Colorado environment, deterioration happens even faster. Exposed to wind, snow and ice, and baking sun, the homeowners’ wood composite siding was damaged to the point of endangering the home interior. It was time for a complete siding replacement.

Bellwether always recommends James Hardie fiber cement siding for Colorado homes because of its durability, evening in the Colorado weather. Fiber cement siding holds up against snow and ice, protecting the home interior from moisture. It also securely seals and withstands wind damage. And even out under the intense sun, this Parker, CO home’s new James Hardie fiber cement siding will remain sturdy and retain its rich color.

The homeowners added some character with James Hardie Color Plus Evening Blue lap siding and rustic, warming wood detail with James Hardie Woodtone lap siding in Summer Wheat.

The original wood composite siding was not only damaged, the color was dingy and uninteresting. With the James Hardie Color Plus color collections, the homeowners had more than 700 colors to choose from. They opted for a lap siding in Evening Blue, which is a rich, inviting color that still compliments the natural beauty of the property.

The home has an interesting Midcentury modern appeal, and the Bellwether design team wanted to accentuate the interesting architecture. With James Hardie fiber cement siding, the homeowners could achieve the rustic look of wood siding, opting for a Woodtone treatment which mimics the grain and rich color of stained wood. They opted for Woodtone lap siding along the front of the house in a Summer Wheat shade. This feature adds a high-end design right at the home’s interest and creates contrast around the interesting architecture.

For added depth, we chose a brighter trim option around the home’s roof, windows, and doors. The James Hardie trim in Cobblestone makes the other color choices pop and outlines the high-design elements on this Parker, CO home. 

All of these color options are protected by James Hardie’s Color Plus technology 15-year warranty, meaning these vibrant shades won’t fade, crack, chip, or peel. James Hardie fiber cement siding materials are also backed by a 30-year product warranty, so these important design choices and investment in the home’s exterior lasts a lifetime.

New Pella 250 windows and a ProVia French door update the rest of the exterior to match the James Hardie Color Plus lap siding and make this Parker, CO home more energy efficient.

Siding replacement isn’t just about a home’s style, and these Parker, CO homeowners wanted to reinforce their house to be as energy efficient as possible. They started with a complete siding replacement, opting for high-quality, energy efficient James Hardie fiber cement siding which will protect their home outside and in for years to come. 

The best time for window replacement is during siding replacement, so that everything can be installed to fit perfectly and sealed tight. The homeowners replaced their old windows with Pella 250. We installed more than 20 new windows and a ProVia French door for a completely updated home exterior that the homeowners love for its look and its superior energy efficiency and protection.
