When it comes to new home siding, Denver residents have a sometimes confusing array of decisions to make. Many homeowners have never purchased siding before, and only are aware of the fact that they can choose from an array of different colors and trim colors. Many of these homeowners are unaware that there are so many different siding materials to choose from: traditional wood, cedar shingle, vinyl siding, and fiber cement siding. Today we are talking about siding styles in fiber cement, a sustainable and incredibly durable home siding choice that comes in an array of different styles.

With all the different James Hardie siding styles, Denver homeowners can change the whole look of their home’s exterior. Of course, this highest quality fiber cement siding comes in the usual horizontal lap plank style that most homeowners are familiar with. But what if you really love the look of cedar shingle siding? Perhaps that is what your home had before. Perhaps you love the look but do not love the amount of maintenance that shingles required in the past. The fading, requiring repainting or else they looked shabby. The drying, splitting, and rotting that can be caused by the sometimes severe Denver climate…

With the James Hardie siding styles, Denver shingle lovers can choose their HardieShingle siding. This looks just like real cedar shingles, comes in a variety of beautiful colors, and is extremely low maintenance. This siding product uses their durable ColorPlus technology, where the paint color is actually baked into the fiber cement and is warranted to last up to fifteen years without needing repainting. No one will know it isn’t made of real cedar and no trees will have to die to recover your home.


Another of the James Hardie siding styles Denver residents are becoming familiar with is their vertical siding. This gives a home a uniquely classic paneled look, with that old fashioned board and batten appearance. And all of the different styles can be mixed and matched, to further customize the home. Perhaps you only want shingles on one portion, and plank siding above it, or vice versa?

James Hardie siding styles, Denver homeowners are delighted to find, can be customized. There are also artisanal styles which can add new siding to an older Denver home, in one of the historic neighborhoods, and keep the same flavor and appearance of the original siding.
