Ideas & Inspiration from Denver Siding Contractors

Denver Cedar Siding

Few siding materials rival the raw beauty that is inherent in cedar siding. Furthermore, it's hard to picture anywhere in the country where cedar siding looks better than when it's sitting in the shadows of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. That's precisely why cedar siding in Denver has such a loyal following, and why there are entire housing developments in the Mile High City where homeowner associations require every home to be clad in cedar siding of one form or another. What most homeowners in Denver don't realize, however, is the wide range of Denver cedar siding styles they have to choose from. Here's a breakdown of the most popular cedar siding styles in metro Denver, and a few other cedar siding facts you should know about if you think cedar might be the right siding for your Denver area home.

Reasons to Buy Cedar Siding
We've already mentioned how well cedar siding looks with the panoramic backdrop of the Rockies looming in the distance. However, while looks inspire many Denverites to choose cedar siding for their homes, there are more reasons than just appearance to go with cedar for your home's siding. First of all, cedar is naturally resistant to the elements. It won't hold up to Colorado's erratic weather as well as fiber cement or vinyl siding, but compared to other wood siding materials, the natural oils in cedar make it the perfect choice for homeowners longing for the more natural and rustic look that goes hand-in-hand with wood siding. Secondly, cedar is an excellent insulator. When added to a home that's well insulated to start with, cedar siding will actually improve the energy-efficiency of your home. And finally, cedar siding is a recyclable building material. Thanks to its proximity to the stunning beauty of the Rocky Mountains, environmental consciousness and awareness tends to be higher in the Mile High City than in other parts of the country. The fact that cedar is a renewable resource, and that cedar shingles are biodegradable and can be recycled when they need to be replaced, is a big plus for Denver homeowners who think green when it comes to home improvements.

Embrace the Possibilities of Cedar Siding
Despite being one of the more high profile and popular siding materials along the Front Range, few Denverites realize how many choices they have when it comes to picking cedar siding in Denver. Here's a quick breakdown of your options, so that you've already covered all your bases when you talk to your contractor about installation.

  • Board and Batten Cedar Siding is composed of wide cedar boards laid vertically against your home's exterior, with cedar battens to cover and seal the joints. Typical board and batten cedar siding in Denver uses 1"x10" boards with 1" battens in between.

  • Beveled Cedar Siding is a variation on standard wood plank siding. These cedar planks are sawn so that the exposed edge is slightly thicker than the upper one, creating a stronger shadow line that emphasizes the siding and your home. Beveled siding is laid horizontally, with each plank overlapping the one below. It is the most common cedar siding installed in Denver and across the nation.

  • Tongue and Groove Cedar Siding is milled so that each plank has a tongue that fits into the groove of the plank below. Tongue and groove siding creates a smooth, solid surface that looks great on any home.

  • Lap Cedar Siding consists of horizontally laid cedar planks that are milled so that each plank can overlap the plank below without being raised from the surface of the home. Lap cedar siding makes it possible to create textured surfaces while providing excellent resistance against moisture penetration. On the Front Range, lap cedar siding is often milled to imitate the look of a log home, especially in the foothills and in Denver's surrounding mountain communities.

  • Cedar Shake Shingles in Denver are one of the most popular siding choices in the Mile High City. Denver cedar shake shingles set your home apart from other cedar sided homes in a distinctive way, though the installation of cedar shake shingles in Denver is a time extensive job. Because each shingle has to be individually installed, you should plan on Denver cedar shake shingles costing you more in labor than the other cedar siding options mentioned above.

Cedar Siding Maintenance
The one downside of cedar siding is upkeep. Despite being far superior to other wood siding materials when it comes to longevity, cedar will eventually deteriorate and rot if it's not treated against the weather. It can be painted, like traditional wood siding, but more often it's treated with an oil-based water sealant to increase its life expectancy. Doing so accentuates, rather than covers up, the beautiful look of Denver cedar siding. If you have cedar siding, you should have your siding treated once every 5 to 10 years. By following that regimen religiously, your siding will last as long as you own your home. Let it slide, however, and you'll be faced with the necessity of replacing your worn out cedar siding in just a decade or two. Cedar Siding Alternatives
On a side note, technology has advanced to the point where fiber cement siding and vinyl siding can be manufactured to imitate cedar siding, especially cedar shake siding in Denver. These forms of imitation shingles are surprisingly reminiscent of the real deal, and come with the added advantage of almost no maintenance (i.e. they don't have to be treated or painted). The downside: you won't find imitation shingles that resemble cedar in color, only in texture. In other words, if you're looking for that classic, red cedar hue, or the finely weathered gray that characterizes older cedar sided homes, you're better off paying out for the genuine article.

Denver Hardie Board Siding

I'll start with a pre-emptive apology to other siding options in Denver. Now that that's out of the way, I'll explain why. When it comes to siding that can take on, and beat, Denver's odd ball combination of weather, there simply is not a material on the market that comes anywhere close to Denver Hardie board siding. In almost every respect, it's superior to other siding materials. And while there are valid reasons to take another route if your home is in need of new siding (vinyl is a very cost effective material if your budget is tight, and you can't beat wood if you're trying to stay true to an older, historic home), the benefits of installing Hardie plank siding on your Denver home are tough for any siding material to overcome.

The Warranty Says it All
Often warranties in the building industry have little to be desired. They have qualifications, are pro-rated, or simply are too short to mean much. Not the case with Hardie siding in Denver. James Hardie offers 50 year warranties without a catch, which speaks volumes to how this siding performs. After all, like any good business, they're out to make money. If they thought a 50 year warranty would cost them in the end, they wouldn't make it available to homeowners who install their fiber cement siding on their home. To put it bluntly, James Hardie stands behind its siding like the Bronco Nation stands behind their football team: with unflinching confidence and loyalty.

Why Hardie Board Siding is a No-Brainer
As I mentioned earlier, it's tough to single out a specific quality that bumps Denver Hardie plank siding to the top of the list. This stuff is a whole package deal. It's tough, durable, attractive, fire proof, weather proof, insect proof, and by most accounts, environmentally friendly as well. Let?s look at those qualities a little bit closer in terms of how they relate to Mile High City homes.

Hardie Board Siding is Tough as Nails
To say that Hardie board plank siding in Denver is as rough and tumble as they come is an understatement. Denver experiences some rough weather: thunderstorms, blizzards, high winds, hail, and the often overlooked 300 days of sunshine a year that do more damage to siding than all those other weather events combined. Still, that's small potatoes compared to hurricanes and tornadoes , and in areas where those extreme storms are common, many locales and municipalities are beginning to require that fiber cement siding be installed on every home to reduce the damage incurred when these natural disasters roll through. If that isn't a testament to durability, I don't know what is.

Hardie Board Siding has the Looks to Match
One of the biggest problems with the so called "maintenance free" siding materials on the market today is that they're either plain, or just plain ugly. Aluminum, galvanized steel, and vinyl siding all boast easy maintenance, but when it comes to looks they fall short. Advances in technology have made it so that they can resemble wood siding, at a distance, but none has the ability to mimic more traditional materials like Hardie plank siding in Denver. And when you factor in that Denver hardie plank siding can be repainted, and holds paint longer and better than other composite materials and wood, it simply takes the cake. Aluminum and steel can be repainted, as well, but those paint jobs are too often short-lived ones, and vinyl fades faster than the Raiders under Al Davis. Hardie siding in Denver, on the other hand, is in it for the long haul, making it very likely the last siding you'll ever have to install on your home.

Insect and Fire Proof
It might seem odd at first to group these two qualities together, but they're the result of the same thing: the composition of fiber-cement siding. It's made of a combination of sand, wood pulp, concrete, and water, and that's a mix that insects can't penetrate and fire can't ignite. Whether you're concerned about carpenter ants, or if you live in the foothills and wildfires are your biggest threat, Denver hardie plank siding is the answer you've been looking for.

Green Building Material
Denver is a unique place in the nation. Maybe it's because the Rockies stand looming off to the west and remind residents of the Mile High City how precious our natural resources are, or maybe Denver residents are just a few steps ahead of the rest of the country. Nevertheless, environmental consciousness in the metro area surpasses that of nearly every other major urban area in the nation. That said, it pays to point out that Hardie board siding in Denver is one of the rising stars in the Green Building movement. Hardie plank siding in Denver utilizes raw materials (sand, water, cement, and wood pulp) that have often been recycled up to four times before they?re incorporated into the siding installed on your home. This siding also lasts longer than other materials, meaning less landfill waste upon tear down, and new hardie board siding utilizes baked on enamel coatings using low VOC paints to further the use of environmentally responsible materials in the manufacturing of the material. Finally, there's James Hardie's "Zero to Landfill" project, which aims to reduce the raw materials sent to landfills by 50%. All that adds up to a product that's good for your conscience as well as your home.

Hardie board siding is the perfect fit for Denver, its climate, and its homes. Get in touch with a contractor who specializes in working with fiber cement siding if you want to protect your home with a material that outperforms other siding options with its sustainability, durability, and looks.

Denver Cement Siding

Denver cement siding, also known as fiber cement siding, hardie board siding, and cement board siding in Denver, is one of the more exciting products to hit the market in a long while. Though to be honest, to say it's a newcomer to the siding industry is a bit misleading. Truth of the matter is that cement siding in Denver and across the nation has been a siding wonder for close to 100 years already. It did suffer a setback when it was discovered that asbestos was bad news, since asbestos was a major component of cement board siding up until the 1970's. However, it has since enjoyed an asbestos free revival and is currently considered one of the most cost-effective, durable, maintenance free, attractive, and versatile siding materials on the Mile High City market.

Benefits of Cement Siding
It's hard to find a fault with fiber cement siding. It's unique makeup, which includes Portland cement, ground sand, additional additives, and water, gives it a combination of positive qualities that no other siding can match. Here's a list, just to give you an idea of how perfect this siding can be for Front Range, foothills, and mountain homes in Colorado.

  • Indestructibility—Few siding products can boast that they're nearly impervious to every weather event the world can throw at it. Take hurricanes and tornadoes, for example. Hardie board siding is highly recommend by builders in locales that deal with both of these extreme weather events. Of course, hurricanes aren't a big concern for homeowners in the Mile High City, since Denver is several thousand miles from the nearest ocean, and Denver's proximity to the Rockies makes tornadoes pretty rare as well. But if this stuff can hold up to the beatings hurricanes and tornadoes can deliver, Denver's unpredictable climate doesn't stand a chance. Heavy snow, extreme temperatures, hail, and high winds are virtually eliminated as a threat if you choose cement siding in Denver.

  • Fire Resistance—Fiber cement siding is also one of the most fire resistant materials on the market, even without the asbestos! There are multiple tales of homes clad in fiber cement siding that survived ravaging wildfires while the rest of the neighborhood was reduced to ashes. Denverites, residents of the foothills, and those in Colorado's many mountain communities are well aware of the serious threat that prairie and forest fires pose in times of drought. When it comes to siding materials that take the heat, you won't find a better alternative anywhere than cement siding in Denver.

  • Painting—Denver cement board siding also has other advantages. Many new fiber cement siding materials have baked on coatings, which are second to none when it comes to durability and longevity. Even if you choose to paint your cement siding in Denver, however, this product is an excellent one. It holds paint much better than even wood siding, and as a result requires painting much less often than that old standby siding material. And compared to vinyl, aluminum, and steel siding, which are noted for fading under Colorado's relentless sun, hardie board siding comes in ahead again, since you can repaint it again and again when the need arises.

  • Homeowners Insurance—Finally, one of the big benefits of Denver cement board siding is a financial one. If you have any doubts about its superiority compared to other siding, just talk to your insurance company. Almost every major insurance company will give you substantial breaks in your homeowner?s insurance premiums if you install this material because of its durability, longevity, and fire resistance. Insurance companies are all about not having to pay out on claims, so if they back up cement siding in Denver, it's because the stuff really works when it comes to protecting your home.

Some Final Considerations
Undoubtedly you're wondering what this siding material is going to cost you. Like a ticket to Coors Field, you get what you pay for. If you're not into spending a lot of money, you'll end up in the Rock Pile and might want to bring a pair of binoculars. If you want good seats, however, you'll be happy spending a little bit more. All that said, the final cost of cement board siding in Denver isn't outrageous. In fact, when compared to other materials it comes out pretty favorably. It's far cheaper than quality wood siding like redwood, and even comes in a little bit under costs associated with high quality vinyl siding. On second thought, maybe the Coors Field analogy isn't totally accurate. Fiber cement siding in Denver is a little more like paying for Rock Pile tickets but sneaking past security and getting to watch the game from the good seats. If you're interested in this excellent siding material for your home, talk to a contractor who specializes in Denver cement siding about getting your installation underway as soon as possible.
