There’s no getting around it – your siding is a critical part of your home. There’s no material that covers more of your exterior and it’s essential for protecting your home from the elements. In Colorado Springs, homeowners have to be careful about the siding material they choose – not every option is well-suited for the harsh weather. Below, we’ve discussed some of the strongest and most durable types that are sure to help you get the most of your investment.


Important Considerations for Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs is unique from other parts of the state. Winters are colder than they are in more southern areas like Pueblo and Lamar. And in the spring, large, golf-ball sized hail is common. When choosing siding for your home, it’s important to take these factors into consideration as well as other aspects like:

  • Rot/decay
  • Pests and critters
  • Fires
  • Heat/fading
  • Ice and snow


Durable Siding Options for Your Home

Because of the unique climate conditions of this area, many homeowners prioritize durability when it comes to their siding. Durable siding is less susceptible to weather damage and tends to last longer and retain its beauty over the years. It’s a great way to maximize your investment and protect your home.

Here are some durable siding options we recommend for Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas:


LP SmartSide

LP SmartSide is a popular choice not only because of its durability but also because of its charming aesthetic. If you tend to gravitate towards natural looks like wood and stone, then LP SmartSide may be the right option for you!


Diamond Kote

Diamond Kote is another excellent option with fantastic durability. Not only is it built on impact resistant LP SmartSide, but it’s also painted with baked-on, fade resistant pigments.


Fiber Cement

Lastly, fiber cement siding is another great option for Colorado Springs homes. Not only does it have a stunning, high-end look, but it’s also fire, rot, and pest resistant! James Hardie makes some excellent fiber cement siding products.
