Siding Choices For Denver Homes


Winter is finally here in Colorado and is actually very welcome after a temperate fall that left us craving the cold air.  Although winters in Denver are never all that harsh. This city does have its moments of deep freeze and even the occasional blizzard.  With that in mind, there is still time to get your home here in Denver re-sided before the “big freeze” or perhaps this springs when things begin to thaw.  Either way, what you will need to know before you replace your Denver home’s siding is–which siding is best for keeping your home warm during the chilly Colorado winters.  

Siding Performance For Cold Climates

Wood Siding

Is always a classic look and very popular here in Colorado where the outdoor, natural aesthetic is forever in style.  Besides being a bit cost prohibitive in installation and maintenance for man homeowners, it may also not be the top choice for colder climates simply because of the expansion in freezing temperatures or after temperature changes.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl is becoming more popular and while some of it has to do with price, it is also a siding that is low maintenance and does not rot.  However, in very, very cold temperatures vinyl siding could crack. Additionally, although the insulation properties of vinyl siding are getting better–it is only about average as far as insulation is concerned.

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement is a composite material of sand, cement, and cellulose. It gives a pretty startling real wood appearance from near and far away too.  As far as insulation, it is one of the best sidings for keeping your Denver home warm and won’t crack like vinyl. However, fiber-cement sidings are premium products because of these benefits and will be on the higher end price wise.
