James Hardie remains the most recognizable name in the siding industry. Having invented fiber cement siding, the company has always been ahead of the siding industry curve. Here’s what makes James Hardie’s fiber cement siding the superior 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.
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.
