This Wheat Ridge, CO home desperately needed a siding replacement, and the homeowners saw an opportunity to create the modern farmhouse of their dreams.

This home in Wheat Ridge, CO was in desperate need of some TLC. The old siding was aged and warped, and the design of the exterior was dated. In a somewhat rural setting, the homeowners had a vision for a modern day farmhouse. Using a board and batten siding profile with James Hardie fiber cement siding in Arctic White they were able to achieve the dream house of their goals, which is perfectly inviting among their acreage and trees.

James Hardie fiber cement siding is the most versatile siding product for any style of home. Comprised of cement and cellulose fibers, fiber cement siding planks can be pressed into any shape. The homeowners chose to feature the board and batten elements on the front of their home for a perfectly farmhouse look, finishing off other portions with a more traditional lap siding in the same Arctic White. This maintains a cohesive look but adds some texture and variety, while also cutting costs with fewer materials used.

James Hardie fiber cement siding in Arctic White is the perfect farmhouse color when contrasted with black design features.

James Hardie fiber cement siding products come in over 700 shades across the color collections. Backed by a 15-year warranty and Color Plus technology, James Hardie fiber cement will never crack, peel, or a fade. Even a vibrant shade like this Arctic White maintains its brilliance over years of weather, wear, and baking sun, with very little maintenance required.

The owners of this Wheat Ridge home elevated their modern farmhouse by creating depth and contrast with color and texture. The dual siding profiles add a subtle, but effective texture to the home’s exterior, and the black roof and design features create a bold and exciting contrast.

To avoid a sterile or cold design, the homeowners opted for rich, warm wood elements along the front porch, which adds a welcoming touch that feels like home.

Fiber cement siding is ideal for Colorado homes, especially rural locations like this Wheat Ridge property which is exposed to sun.

James Hardie fiber cement products are constructed with advanced technology and resilient materials like cement and cellulose fibers, making it the most versatile and durable siding product on the market.

Fiber cement siding is designed to protect against Colorado elements such as baking sun, high winds, heavy snow and ice, all of which can be damaging to a home’s exterior. Even with high exposure, this home is protected and backed with James Hardie’s 30-year warranty.

Fiber cement siding from James Hardie has a grade-A fire rating and is resilient to spark and flame. All homes in the western part of Denver suburbs are subject to high fire risk during wildfire season, so James Hardie’s fire resiliency is just another benefit for these Wheat Ridge, CO homeowners.

The homeowners updated their design and protection with brand new Impervia windows around the home.

Siding replacement isn’t the only way to improve a home’s design and exterior protection. Your siding works in conjunction with other elements, such as windows, to protect from sun damage, moisture infiltration, and drafts.

These homeowners chose Impervia windows and installed them at the same time as their James Hardie fiber cement siding. Siding replacement is an excellent time to complete any new window and door installations to ensure a tight fit and protective seals. With new siding and these beautiful windows, the homeowners created a safe, energy-efficiency home interior and the stunning modern farmhouse exterior of their dreams.
