Vinyl siding has become a popular choice because it looks like a more expensive and requires very little maintenance. Vinyl siding is a little more expensive in upfront cost because but over the long haul it will cost less to maintain making it a great investment. Vinyl siding won't last forever and my need to be repaired at times but this wouldn't be very often and is very inexpensive to repair. An added benefit is that you can get vinyl siding in a wide array of styles and colors.
Another option that holds up well in Colorado weather and requires little maintenance is cement board siding. This isn't as common as vinyl siding and is made to look like wood with knots and wood grain formed into the board. And although the siding itself is less expensive, in the cold Colorado winters, it will need insulation installed with it making the price higher in the Denver area.
This is the more traditional and most common siding used on homes in Colorado. This can be made from a variety of wood types and you'll find it installed in different ways. It can be hung horizontally or vertically. The down side to wood siding is that it will require frequent maintenance to keep it looking nice. Cedar shake is a popular wood siding if you want to add a rustic look to your home. One drawback to cedar shake siding is that over time the wood will dry out and become more flammable. The shakes can be treated with a chemical to make them less flammable and more resistant to insect damage, rot and warping.
Seamless Steel Siding
This is one of the least common home siding types on the market. Metal siding is very durable and requires very little maintenance. It is resistant to hail damage, fire and insects. Because it is seamless water and wind are unable to penetrate the siding which will prevent it from buckling and bulging.
