colorado_springs_hardie_board_1As a contractor who specializes in Colorado Springs Hardie Board installations, I am often asked to explain the differences between James Hardie fiber cement siding and other siding materials.After all, it is the siding on a home’s exterior that keeps a home weatherized and enhances its insulation.It is also the exterior building materials that people see first, so it is important to choose one with curb appeal.

Beyond its good looks and the natural sturdiness of fiber cement shingles, Colorado Springs Hardie Board buyers are often surprised at its low cost. When compared with cedar shingles or clapboard siding, which are more expensive to purchase and maintain, Hardie Board is a very viable solution. Richer looking than vinyl siding, and much sturdier too, Hardie Board comes in a wide variety of colors and it has excellent weatherproofing qualities. 

For homeowners in Colorado Springs, Hardie Board offers the look of real wood but it is actually made from two ecologically friendly materials – cellulose fibers and cement. Unlike wood shingles, Hardie Board will not be susceptible to pest problems, nor will it warp or rot. Looking at some of the wood-like varieties of Hardie Board plank siding, it would require a trained eye to tell the difference between these shingles and natural wood. 

Unlike most factory made vinyl-siding, which are designed to create a false impression of depth, James Hardie’s Hardie Board siding is just as thick as real wood. It can be painted just as easily as wood, but the paint lasts longer because the fiber cement won’t expand and contract like wood shingles.

While it can be more expensive and require more maintenance than vinyl, Colorado Springs Hardie Board contractors recommend a longer-term view of home renovations. According to Remodeling Magazine, Hardie Board siding will return a higher resale value for your home than other siding materials.
