Whether you’ve lived in Boulder County for a while or you just moved here, you know that in Colorado you experience weather extremes every year. Though we love living in a place where we can experience all four seasons, these elements can put severe wear on our home’s siding. That’s why WestPro has decided to partner with James Hardie® offering the top-rated cement fiber siding on the market.
Why James Hardie® Fiber Cement Siding?
Fiber cement siding is revolutionizing the siding installation industry and is giving homeowners and others more than has ever been offered by another siding brand:
- Superior durability
- Lasting color
- Custom design options
- Low maintenance
- Generous warranty
- Low installation costs
Fiber cement siding — and more specifically the James Hardie® brand — is made to take on all the elements that we experience. It can withstand wind, rain, and hail, and it isn’t prone to rot, termites, or water damage. It is also resistant to fire, protecting your home if the worst should happen.
With James Hardie siding, you don’t have to worry about painting your home in addition to investing in new siding installation. Cement fiber siding comes with the color baked onto it. As a result, the color of your siding lasts longer than the normal paint job and requires very little, if any maintenance to keep your siding looking vibrant for years to come.
James Hardie siding comes in a variety of colors, textures, and finishes allowing you to achieve the look that you desire. You never have to make the choice between style and curb appeal for longevity.
James Hardie siding requires very little maintenance. Unlike wood that has to be restained or painted regularly or aluminum siding that is prone to dents, fiber cement siding only needs to be washed with mild soap to wash away dirt and stay looking its best.
Not only does James Hardie siding require very little maintenance, but it also offers a generous warranty — a 30-year, non-prorated warranty! Enjoy a siding that can withstand the Colorado weather, offers beautiful color, and lasts effortlessly.
This kind of siding is also incredibly easy to install allowing us to easily, quickly, and effectively replace the siding on your home. With this advantage and the others this siding provides, this is an investment with a high return on investment!

What is Fiber Cement Siding?
Fiber cement siding was invented by the siding installation experts at James Hardie 25 years ago and they continue to be leaders in the industry with innovative products. The difference that fiber cement siding can provide you starts at the very beginning with the ingredients.
What is Fiber Cement Siding Made Out Of?
This innovative siding type is created using four different ingredients:
- Wood pulp
- Fly ash or silica sand
- Portland cement
I Really Don’t Have to Paint It?
James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology provides long-lasting, uniform, and vibrant color. Our siding is able to uphold a 30-year warranty because:
- Not only is the paint baked onto the siding, but 50% more paint is applied in multiple coats to every surface of the siding.
- As part of the process to maintain the color, between each coat the siding is cured — creating a siding material that doesn’t crack, chip, or peel.
Due to James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology, our siding is UV and fading resistant.
Why WestPro Recommends James Hardie Fiber Cement
There are many viable siding materials available. However, WestPro recommends cement fiber siding manufactured by James Hardie because we see first hand the abuse that siding takes in Colorado, and specifically, Boulder County. We live here and have our own homes that we maintain and are well aware of the wear-and-tear that Colorado’s weather extremes and storms cause. We recommend this type of siding because we have seen it tested and its claims have proven to be true.
