You want to ensure you’re buying the best possible product when you choose to re-side. James Hardie invented fiber cement and remains the leader in the field. Here’s what you’ll get when you invest in James Hardie siding and trim.
Color That Lasts
Baked-on ColorPlus® Technology has greater resistance to fading, chipping and cracking, meaning less maintenance for you.
Since fiber cement siding (unlike vinyl) is non-combustible and hail-damage resistant, it can sometimes help reduce home insurance premiums. Ask your agent.
All James Hardie siding products come with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty and trim products come with a 15-year, non-prorated warranty.
#1 Return on Investment
Re-siding with fiber cement yields the best ROI when compared to other mid-size remodeling projects.
Fiber cement costs less than wood, doesn’t attract pests, and resists water absorption to help protect against mold, swelling and cracking—buying you more mileage for your dollar.
James Hardie is the only siding company that engineers siding and trim products for specific climates, ensuring that you get the best performance for your region.
Siding is exposed to Mother Nature all day, every day, for years. Weather, water, time, fire and pests—all can lead to trouble. That’s why James Hardie’s hardworking products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements.
Bad weather can strike at any time. So we test our products to better withstand worst-case scenarios: hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms, and more. But it’s not only extremes that break down siding—the change of seasons does a number on materials such as vinyl (which may crack in the cold) and wood products (which expand and contract with changes in moisture and humidity). Only James Hardie products are Engineered for Climate®.
OSB or wood-composite siding has a tendency to expand, buckle, crack and mold when repeatedly exposed to precipitation. Vinyl siding installations may put you at risk for water intrusion, especially around windows and trim joints.
James Hardie products are specifically engineered to withstand damage from moisture and rot, and will hold their own, come rain, sleet, or snow.
In case of a fire, you want to know that walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire feasts on wood, and it melts vinyl almost instantly. But James Hardie siding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.
James Hardie fiber cement siding offers little appeal to critters and won’t be eaten by termites. So you can focus on the animals in your life that actually make you happy.
