What is siding?

Siding, or wall cladding, is the protective material attached to the exterior walls of a house or other building. Siding materials drive your home’s appearance and style, but siding is also a necessary, functional element of your home’s construction and efficiency. Home siding is a reliable and economical way to beautify and protect your home, with plenty of options to satisfy different tastes and budgets.

Along with the roof, siding forms the first line of defense against the elements. Most importantly,  Bellwether siding shields your home from sun, rain, snow, heat, and cold, while also protecting against moisture, mildew and mold, and unwanted pests, creating a stable and more comfortable environment on the inside. Quality siding not only protects your home from the elements, it also beautifies, adds curb appeal, and can increase the value of your home.

Siding comes in a variety of options, including various materials and joinery methods. Our Bellwether experts will advise on the appropriate siding materials for your home, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding, which is resistant to wildfire and other Colorado climate hazards. James Hardie products are offered in an incredible selection of colors, engineered to withstand these environmental elements, including the baking Colorado sun.

What are my siding color choices?

Many siding products, including some James Hardie siding products, can be infused with any color of your choice. As an Elite Preferred James Hardie contractor, we recommend the James Hardie fiber cement siding, offered in the James Hardie Color-Plus Statement Collection. 

The Color-Plus Statement Collection brings 19 rich color options to premium James Hardie fiber cement siding products, featuring such desirable tones as Arctic White, Khaki Brown, Gray Slate, and Mountain Sage. There are also more vibrant color choices, including a blue, a red, and a green, covering a wide variety of home color palette options. Using a technologically-advanced color engineering system, the shades in the James Hardie Color-Plus Statement Collection are true color tones, researched and designed to meet color expectations from the sample card to the finish result on your home siding. And because of the high-quality materials and procedures, you can be assured that your color will remain vibrant and consistent for more than a decade.

Built with a 15-year warranty, these pre-painted siding options are painted in-factory with an automobile-grade enamel that is consistent and even. In Colorado, while some fading is expected, our experts find that even Colorado homeowners can skip up to two paint cycles with the James Hardie Color-Plus Statement Collection, as the warranty is valid against fading, cracking, bubbling and chipping. 

At Bellwether, we believe that form and function go hand-in-hand, and we love to design beautiful homes. As a James Hardie Preferred Elite contractor, we recommend James Hardie products because of their strong, dependable, and resilient materials; and we also know, choosing a solid siding product does not mean sacrificing style. At Bellwether, the James Hardie siding color choices are the surest way to build a comfortable, dry home, that is as beautiful as it is protected.

When using James Hardie fiber cement siding, there are more than 700 color options to choose from, or, working with Sherwin Williams paints, your siding can be exactly color-matched to the color of your choice.
