It’s the end of October which means cold weather is on its way to Denver! Denver almost always gets its first snow by Halloween, so it won’t be long before we’ll be kissing these warm autumn days goodbye. Now is a good time to go ahead and start getting your home ready for winter and preparing for the cold months ahead. One great way to protect your home from the winter cold in Denver is with new siding!

At Scottish Home Improvements, we offer a variety of winter-hardy siding options that can help you endure the cold months ahead. From durable James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding to natural-looking LP SmartSide, we carry tons of great brands that are well-suited for Denver’s harsh, cold climate.

Below, we’ve discussed some of the benefits of residing your home before winter.



How New Siding Can Protect Your Home from the Winter Cold

Winter brings freezing temperatures, snowmelt and moisture, and vicious thaw cycles. All of this can have a major impact on the comfort of your home and it’s energy efficiency. Installing new siding for your Denver home is a great way to protect it from winter weather. Replacing your siding can help:

  • Prevent moisture damage caused by water run off and snow
  • Protect your home from winter storms, freezing rain, and wind
  • Add insulation to your exterior and lower your energy costs
  • Keep your home warm when temperatures start to drop
  • Protect your home from pests trying to get in through cracks or crevices


Winter-Hardy Siding Options: James Hardie & LP SmartSide

Not all siding is well-suited for Denver’s harsh winter weather. Some options like vinyl will have a hard time withstanding the freezing temperatures, ice, and snow and may be prone to splitting or cracking.

That’s why we recommend installing a durable option like James Hardie or LP SmartSide. Both of these brands are excellent choices and are very strong and weather-resistant. They’re specially designed for harsh weather and hold up well in climates like ours.
