James Hardie Siding

When it comes to fiber cement siding, one name stands out as having the top marks in durability, home aesthetics, and convenient siding. That name is James Hardie, one of the winners of the Good Housekeeping seal of approval, in addition to accolades from Southern Living, Green Builder, Money Magazine, and others. In the home improvement industry, professionals are well aware that James Hardie is one of the best exterior siding investments that a homeowner can make.

Fiber Cement Siding

James Hardie siding is a unique material blend. It’s 90% sand and cement content, which means it’s fire resistant. It also holds up under conditions that would wreck just about any other kind of siding, such as wood warps, rots, and cracks. Compare this to vinyl siding, which melts and doesn’t have the same authentic look. Even OSB, which is known to be engineered wood siding, cracks under the fluctuation of temperature.

Durability Backed By Warranty

James Hardie siding is the go-to for inclement weather and difficult conditions. It even holds up under the ocean’s salt spray. It’s tough enough that the company backs it up with a 50-year limited transferable warranty. James Hardie siding products are engineered to withstand your climate, whatever weather you expect.

  • Fire Resistant: James Hardie siding is recommended by firefighters, who have seen over and over again firsthand how it stands up to fires. It doesn’t melt like vinyl, or combust like wood. In fact, its fire-resistance can often entitle you to a better deal on your homeowner’s insurance.
  • Withstands Temperature Fluctuations: Even if you live in a temperate climate, your house will need to deal with the temperature fluctuations that make materials expand and contract. This often leads to a lot of strain on elements like wood, However, James Hardie siding holds up to fluctuations, continuing to look great even after years of exposure.
  • Pest-resistant: Insects love moist wood, and anything from woodpeckers to carpenter wasps can do damage to your home’s siding. James Hardie siding is resistant to termites and other pests, giving you an effective shield around your home to counter insect invasions.
  • Moisture & Rot Resistant: James Hardie siding won’t become damaged in water, whether you’re experiencing an epic flood, or continual atmospheric moisture.

Beautiful Look & Feel

Its durability is enough to sell it effectively, but the benefits of James Hardie siding don’t stop there. It’s also famous for beautiful appearance and versatility. Because it’s thicker than vinyl siding, more realistic grooves give added texture and a classic look. It’s available in various options, from lap siding and vertical planking to shingles and trim. It’s also offered in numerous curated and professionally chosen hues, sealed into the material in order to provide reliable, durable color that will last longer than most paints.
