Fire Season has Started in Colorado; is Your Home Protected?

Protect Your Home From Colorado FiresColorado residents know that fire season is no stranger in our beautiful state, especially during our dry summers.  It seems like every time you listen to the news, they’re talking about a raging, destructive wildfire.

The recent fire in Fort Collins has spread almost 50,000 acres, and destroyed hundreds of buildings along the way.  This fire began in High Park, near Fort Collins, and it’s spreading to other common wildfire areas quickly.  This is the first large one of the season, and the third largest ever, proving that protecting your home is more important than ever.

Any wildfire is difficult to contain, and our most recent one is no different.  With over 1,000 people working on it on daily, this huge disaster has only been contained by about 10 percent.

How Scottish Home Improvements Can Protect Your Home

Scottish Home Improvements understands your fears as a Colorado homeowner, and we can help you rest easy knowing that your home is safe from all the elements, not just wildfires.

If you haven’t heard of fiber cement siding, now is a great time to learn more about it.  This siding is a combination of cement, sand, and wood fibers to create the most durable exterior product available for your home today.

The most important benefit of fiber cement siding for Colorado homeowners, (we prefer James Hardie Siding products) is that this siding is non-combustible.  This means that it won’t set fire for anything, and this siding could make the difference between a wildfire taking your home completely, or leaving it salvageable.

Year-Round Protection Against Colorado Elements

Aside from dangerous wildfires, Colorado is also known for its intense seasonal weather.  James Hardie siding can protect you year-round from all of our elements.  It won’t freeze and crack from the harsh winters, and this siding can actually help you better insulate your home in general.  Fiber cement also won’t rot or warp, like wood siding, or melt in extreme heat like vinyl siding.

The great thing about James Hardie Siding is that it protects, but it also looks fantastic.  There are literally thousands of color and style combinations available, so you can protect your home and still love the way it looks.

Your home is probably your biggest and most important investment, and fiber cement siding could be the difference between loosing that investment, and taking care of it for years to come, no matter what natural disasters come your way.  Browse our James Hardie page for more information about the benefits of fiber cement, and learn more about how to get it installed on your home.
