Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Boulder, CO - Jul 11, 2019 - In Colorado, siding needs to be particularly durable to endure hail, extreme temperatures and more. If a home’s siding if not up to the task or it’s just time for you to upgrade, consider fiber cement siding. It’s built for Colorado.
When it comes to protecting your home from the elements, fiber cement siding is the clear winner.

This type of siding is a composite made from cement, sand, cellulose fiber, and water in a specific process that uses pressurized steam. This results in a sturdy siding that costs a little more than vinyl siding, but less than wood. For the most part, fiber cement siding is maintenance free, although it will need painting occasionally. When it’s time to replace or convert siding company Boulder WestPro are the professionals you need.

Fiber cement siding does not rot or crack, so, of course, it lasts longer. It handles significant changes in humidity and temperature very well. Fiber cement siding is very weather resistant, can withstand hurricane force winds as well as extreme heat and cold.
