Wood composite siding is not the best siding option for Colorado homes, and this wood siding was more than 40 years old!

Wood siding is not the strongest siding option for Colorado homes to begin with, but the wood composite siding on this 1980 Thornton, CO home was more than 40 years old! When the homeowners came to Bellwether, it was clear that their home exterior needed a complete siding replacement.

Our sales teams assessed the damage to the wood composite siding and noticed that the trim, soffit, and fascia also all needed to be replaced in order to ensure the upmost protection and polished beauty for this home’s exterior refresh. We recommended James Hardie fiber cement siding because, not only is it a high-quality product with a beautiful finish, it checks all the boxes when it comes to protecting Colorado homes from the outside in.

By upgrading to James Hardie fiber cement lap siding, these Thornton, CO homeowners safeguarded their home against Colorado’s extreme climate hazards along the Front Range.

Colorado weather can be unpredictable, and it shifts in extremes. Weather conditions such as snow and ice, high winds, temperature changes, and baking sun can all impact the integrity of a home’s siding. For these Thornton, CO homeowners, where all of these weather elements are a daily reality, fiber cement siding made the most sense. 

Backed by a 30-year product warranty, the customers can be assured that their investment in a complete siding replacement with James Hardie fiber cement siding will last a lifetime. That’s years and years of protection from moisture, cold air, and high temperatures under Colorado’s persistent sunlight.

Plus, James Hardie fiber cement siding has a grade-A fire rating, so these Thornton, CO residents can rest easy come wildfire season if there is threat of fire along the Front Range. With James Hardie fiber cement, their home exterior is resistant to spark and flame. 

The homeowners chose other James Hardie fiber cement products to double-down on superior protection and high-quality design for their Thornton home’s exterior.

Because of the age of the original 1980s sheathing, our sales assessment determined that the homeowner should also replace other home exterior elements, including the trim, soffit, and fascia. These components work in-tandem with siding planks to keep out moisture and drafts. James Hardie offers complimentary fiber cement products that work seamlessly with their fiber cement lap siding, so these Thornton customers chose to complete their home exterior renovation with the full collection of James Hardie offerings.

This fiber cement siding in Cobblestone includes James Hardie Color Plus technology, so the beautiful new shade of this Thornton, CO home will last a lifetime.

Because James Hardie fiber cement siding products are offered in over 700 colors with Color Plus technology, these customers could perfectly color-match their siding, trim, soffit, and fascia. Working with our design team for a natural and timeless look, the homeowners chose Cobblestone for their siding, trim, and soffit. For an interesting design element that adds depth and a high-end feel, they opted for the fascia in Timberbark, creating a subtle but powerful contrast.
