Intense Colorado weather creates risks for homeowners in Westminster, and hail damage had destroyed two walls of vinyl lap siding on this home.
The Colorado climate is harsh and unpredictable. Storms can quickly shift from rain to snow or hail. These Westminster homeowners endured a heavy hail storm, and their 1979 vinyl lap siding bore the consequences. Vinyl siding is not particularly durable, and aged more than 30 years, it could not hold up in the storm.
Wear and tear had made the vinyl siding even more vulnerable. Vinyl siding isn’t designed for Colorado’s extreme temperature changes, and constant expansion and contraction weakens the composition. In turn, the warped vinyl siding becomes susceptible to moisture and pest infiltration, and the deterioration happens quickly from there.
While these homeowners could see obvious hail damage on two walls of their home after the storm, it was very evident that they needed a full siding replacement. Thankfully, after our sales team’s assessment, the insurance company agreed and we were able to turn their siding repair into a full siding replacement, swapping the aged vinyl siding for James Hardie fiber cement siding.
James Hardie fiber cement siding is designed with Colorado weather in mind, and these Westminster homeowners are now protected against future weather damage.
If vinyl lap siding is the weakest siding option for a Colorado home, James Hardie fiber cement siding is the best choice. These Westminster homeowners understood the toll Colorado weather could take on a lesser siding option, and they decided to make an investment in the best.
