Bellwether received a call from this Thornton, CO resident because they trusted our expert opinion on their need for siding replacement.

When we first heard from the customer, they had done their due diligence and assessed the 1978 home in Thornton, CO on their own. To the naked eye, they assumed that they needed a full siding replacement, based on where they saw signs of wear-and-tear, but they thought it was better to have a professional’s second opinion.

At Bellwether, our sales process always begins with a complete assessment of your home exterior, and we aren’t going to sell you products you don’t need. In the case of this Thornton, CO home, the deterioration of the wood composite siding was extensive, and the homeowner was correct: it was time for a full siding overhaul. At that point, our sales representatives drew up different proposals for them—confirming the need for siding didn’t pigeonhole them into one solution. We made sure they had several options to choose from.

Fiber cement siding instead of a wood composite siding is the best option for homes in Thornton, CO.

Because of the age of the home and the type of original siding, it isn’t surprising that this Thornton, CO home was ready for a full siding replacement. Wood composite siding isn’t designed to hold up under extreme weather like the Colorado climate—and this siding was several decades old.

Thornton, CO experiences much of Colorado’s extreme weather elements, including snow and ice, high winds, fast temperature shifts, and baking sun. All of these conditions work against the health of many siding products, and especially wood composite siding, which tends to easily absorb moisture and then warp or crack.

We made sure the customer knew that, of all the options we presented, fiber cement siding was the best investment as a Colorado homeowner.
