The Fantastic Benefits of James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding
James Hardie fiber cement outshines its competition in low maintenance, performance, and durability. Here’s what we love about Hardie siding.
Fiber cement siding is the most beautiful manufactured siding on the market today. Thanks to its extra-thick profile – five times thicker than vinyl – it has deeper grooves that allow a more authentic-looking wood grain effect. Whether you choose to paint it yourself or to add the factory-applied ColorPlus Technology color blends, nobody will ever mistake your exterior for plastic siding.
James Hardie fiber cement siding can outlast most types of siding materials available today. One of the most common complaints about vinyl siding is that it warps under extreme heat. This is certainly not a problem with fiber cement siding. The combination of silica, fiber and Portland cement makes it the most durable siding option available, and it will be able to withstand impact from hailstones and airborne debris. Thanks to James Hardie’s HardieZone system, you have the additional assurance that your siding is tailored to the local climate.
Durable James Hardie Finish
While wood siding needs frequent painting to keep it sealed and prevent moisture and pest intrusion, fiber cement is built so resiliently, you don’t have to constantly refinish it to prevent problems.
James Hardie offers long-lasting, factory baked-on color for your gorgeous siding. While other siding needs to be painted every 4-8 years, Hardie siding with ColorPlus technology is warrantied for 15 years against peeling, flaking, and chipping. It saves you the hassle of regular paint jobs and keeps your home looking fabulous. Extend the lifetime of the great looks of your home exterior with ColorPlus finish on your Hardie siding.
With proper care and maintenance, fiber cement products are expected to last about 30 to 50 years, almost twice as long as typical roofing systems. Combined with James Hardie’s industry-leading limited warranties – including up to 30 years coverage on the siding itself – you can rest assured knowing your home won’t be needing new siding for a long time to come.
James Hardie fiber cement siding doesn’t just last longer, it’s also easy to maintain. It can be cleaned as easily as vinyl siding. All you need is a garden hose to wash off the dirt and dust from the surface. Tight corners and stubborn dirt can be cleaned using a soft brush and some dish detergent mixed with water. James Hardie fiber cement siding with ColorPlus technology is warranted not to peel, crack or chip for up to 15 years after installation, which can save you the cost of scraping and repainting several times over.
Resilient Weather Resistance
The James Hardie Company studied the long-term impact the weather in various regions has on siding. Based on their findings, they literally engineered siding specifically for the weather in your region. So, you get the optimal Hardie siding product built to stand up to the Kansas City climate! The HardieZone system’s H5 product is built especially to protect your home under wet and freezing conditions.
