We are in the process of transforming a home in Bearspaw, Alberta just beyond Calgary city limits. The old vertical cedar siding has taken a hammering from the elements as you can see from the top photo. The owner selected fibre cement siding by James Hardie as replacement material. Because they have been making it for over a century, and it comes in a range of delightful colours, or plain.
Fibre Cement: Perfect Siding Material for Calgary
Fibre cement is a composite material comprising cement containing reinforcing cellulose strands. Most customers choose from the wide range of standard colours available. However, we can also supply it raw for later painting.
The beauty of this material compared to cedar wood siding is it is rot proof and termite resistant. Moreover, it has high impact resilience and is fireproof too. We are installing the siding at Bearspaw in overlapping horizontal rows to replicate traditional wood siding and clapboard. As you can see from the next photo it soon starts looking almost like the real thing.
A Complete Makeover for a Loved Family Home
We are doing a complete makeover of the exterior of this property. We expect the resale value to increase well in excess of project cost, because we will have given the older home an ‘as new’ impression. We have fitted fibre cement siding to a number of new homes in Calgary and surrounds, witnessing how popular this low-maintenance material is becoming.
When complete, the Bearspaw upgrade will have fibre cement siding throughout. Plus new window cladding, aluminum soffits, fascias, and eavestroughing, all in long-lasting, low maintenance materials. Our renovation projects are increasingly popular among Calgary homeowners, in the light of new home prices outstripping affordability.
