James Hardie siding is one of the most popular siding options for new constructions, and it’s no secret as to why: when it comes to beautiful, convenient, and durable sidings, James Hardie siding stands out above the rest. James Hardie siding has won numerous awards for its practicality and cost-efficiency, such as the Good Housing seal of approval, accolades from Southern Living, Green Builder, Money Magazine, and more. Homeowners and professionals alike have experienced the benefits of James Hardie siding and know that it is an investment worth making.
Beautiful Addition to Any New Construction
James Hardie siding is renowned for its beautiful and professional look. The siding is made from high-quality material that looks good and lasts long. The different styles and colors make it versatile enough to match the aesthetic of virtually any home.
It also comes in a variety of styles and can mimic the look of other materials such as wood lap boards, cedar shingles, and wood shake siding.
It comes in a large variety of curated hues that are sealed into the material to provide a beautiful finish that lasts longer than most paints. It can also be easily painted.
The embossed texturing creates a realistic imitation of wood grain that gives each board a classic textured look.
Strong and Durable
James Hardie siding is a fiber cement siding, which is a blend of materials consisting mostly of sand and cement. It is extremely durable and is able to withstand harsh conditions. This promise is backed up by a 50-year limited transferable warranty.
Moisture and rot resistant. James Hardie siding is not easily damaged by water, dries easily, and does not rot as wood does.
Built for temperature fluctuations. Houses expand and contract slightly with the weather. Even in moderate climates, housing materials can be damaged over time by their frequent changes in size due to the strain it puts on them. James Hardie siding, however, is flexible enough to remain undamaged by temperature fluctuations and lasts longer than wood or other sidings.
Fire-resistant. Because it is mostly made of sand and cement, James Hardie siding does not contribute to fires, making it fire resistant. Vinyl melts and wood combusts, but James Hardie siding withstands fires very well, which often leads to homeowners getting a better deal on their homeowner’s insurance.
Pest-resistant. Because there are not many cellulose fibers in James Hardie siding, it does not attract insects or vermin and instead acts as a shield that protects your house from potential infestations. With James Hardie siding, you will not need to worry about the damages that woodpeckers, carpenter wasps, termites, or other pests can cause.
Storm-resistant. James Hardie siding is made of strong materials that dry quickly. This makes it storm-resistant, as it is less likely to be damaged by hail, snow, or debris, and will not mold or rot.
James Hardie siding is easy to maintain. It is recommended that you wash the siding with a hose every 6 to 12 months and gently clean it with a soft brush or cloth. A mild detergent and soft brush can be used for stubborn dirt or stains. So long as you prevent the siding from being exposed to excessive amounts of water for long periods of time, it will not be damaged by the weather or a spray from your hose. It is also recommended to keep vegetation such as trees or bushes from growing near the siding and to avoid direct contact with deicing salts.
