Living in a historic home is such a romantic experience. Historic homes are filled with memories of the past, and they’re built with unique features that you no longer see in modern homes today.
So of course, preserving the features that give your historic home its individualistic appearance is important to you. But, at the same time, you also have to fix and replace structural components when they start to wear down, like your siding. But many modern materials simply don’t have the same look as siding on older historic homes.
James Hardie is one of the manufacturers that creates options which can be used for historical homes. With siding choices like HardieShingle and HardiePlank, you can easily preserve the vintage look of your Denver home and make the necessary updates to your exterior.
Why Choose James Hardie for Historical Home Siding
Keeping your siding up to date is important for many reasons. When cracks and chips start to form in your siding, internal elements become exposed to outdoor conditions that can lead to structural issues. When these internal components are exposed to too much heat, moisture, or insects, they begin to degrade. What once was an affordable maintenance item quickly becomes an expensive renovation.
But, it’s not always easy to find historical home siding options in Denver. Vinyl siding and steel siding simply have too modern of a look. Fortunately, James Hardie creates a few different styles that can be used to preserve the look of older vintage homes. Choices like HardieShingle and HardiePlank make it easy to replace the siding of your historic property without altering its appearance.
Siding Installation Process
If your siding is more than 15 or 20 years old, or if you’ve noticed signs of wear such as cracks or missing pieces, it might be time for an update. To get started with the process of replacing your historic home’s siding in Denver, simply contact our office to initiate the installation process. We’ll come out to visit your home for an onsite consultation, take some measurements, and talk to you about the different options available to you.
