James Hardie™ Fiber Cement: A Premium Siding For Colorado Homes

James Hardie fiber cement siding is one of the strongest and most durable siding products available for homes here in Colorado.  Renowned for not cracking, fading, or warping over time–even under Colorado’s intense sun. While the price point may be higher than other sidings–with James Hardie you don’t just get a siding that will likely outlast you in your home–you get the hands down best color and style selection too!  This siding is well worth the additional costs if you ask us!

LP™ SmartSide™: A Mid-Level Siding For Colorado Homes

This siding is also very durable, beautiful, and has the bonus of being easy to install. LP SmartSide is also low maintenance.  The best part about this siding, besides the fact that it is proven to withstand freeze and thaw cycles, termite damage, and heat and sun exposure, is the fact that it is less expensive than fiber cement sidings, but still offers a variety of lovely colors and styles.  A great mid-range price point makes it hard to resist too!

Vinyl Siding: A Budget Siding For Colorado Homes

Vinyl siding remains one of the most popular choices for siding in Colorado, and for good reason–it is durable, energy efficient, and beautiful and is a great choice for remodels and homes under about $250,000.  As such, vinyl is one of the most economical options for residing in your home and does not require any expensive upkeep or maintenance.
