Are you a Colorado Springs resident looking to upgrade your home siding? Learn why Hardie Board Siding is ideal for your home project.

siding contractorsWhen one considers all the different building materials available to homeowners today, sustainable building products might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Besides, when consumers think about helping the environment they usually imagine themselves recycling, driving a hybrid car or using wind or solar power, not using sustainable shingles. However, “green and sustainable” building products are one way that homeowners can be kind to the environment while beautifying their homes.

Not every Colorado Springs cement siding contractor offers a way to create more sustainable homes like this, but it has become a growing trend. Hopefully the long-term positive effect of this trend will help the environment, but are all sustainable products created equal? By using the James Hardie brand of cement siding, also known as HardieBoard®, homeowners are guaranteed a beautiful and durable exterior that meets the building industry’s standards of sustainability.

Why choose James Hardie Siding® for your next home improvement project?

  • The raw materials used to make cement siding are low in toxicity, using only water, sand, wood pulp and cement.
  • James Hardie Siding® uses ten different manufacturing facilities, located strategically across the country, to reduce the carbon emissions caused by transporting heavy materials over long distances.
  • ColorPlus® technology gives James Hardie Siding® a baked-on paint finish that has a 15-year finish warranty and reduces the need for repainting
  • Because their materials last longer, they require infrequent replacement and reduced maintenance over time

As a Colorado Springs cement siding contractor since 1989, Heart House is pleased to offer homeowners the kind of building materials that will reduce the environmental impact in a number of ways.
The materials are non-combustible, according to ASTME-16 ratings, and because they are not made from wood, cement siding panels use fewer natural resources.

What about windows?

It’s funny how windows are hardly noticed until you replace them. Most window contractors are amazed at how excited their customers are when they first see new windows installed. Not only do they add beauty and curb appeal to any home, vinyl windows are also a great way to improve your home’s insulation and reduce energy costs. Expertly installed, high-quality vinyl windows are an excellent choice for your Colorado Springs home.

Vinyl will never pit or flake off like aluminum windows and it never requires repainting. Unlike wood windows, they require very little maintenance other than the occasional washing. Look for a grade of windows that offers superior thermal performance and easy operation. Your investment in new vinyl windows will pay off in many ways over the coming years, and many homeowners have found that they practically pay for themselves as a long-term investment.
If you are searching for a reliable and professional Colorado Springs siding and window contractor, look no further than the team at Heart House Creations, where “top quality for less” is always guaranteed.
