What is James Hardie Siding?

We proudly serve customers in Illinois and Wisconsin, and we know that the climate in this region can wreak havoc on a home’s exterior. One of the many reasons we recommend James Hardie siding to our customers is because the product is made to withstand our Midwestern weather extremes. 

This fiber cement siding material is made from the following blend of ingredients: 

  • Portland cement, which acts as a binder
  • Wood pulp, which makes the siding flexible and resilient
  • Silica sand, which is a filler
  • Water, which dissolves the wood pulp and activates the cement


Combining these materials results in a durable siding material that will look great and keep your home protected for decades. 

What Sets James Hardie Siding Apart From Other Materials?

When it comes time to replace your siding, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is which material to install. Of all the siding products around, only LP SmartSide rivals James Hardie when it comes to durability.

While some materials are notorious for fading after a few years, James Hardie offers ColorPlus® Technology to ensure your siding stays vibrant. 

When you choose ColorPlus® Technology for your James Hardie siding, a proprietary finish is applied to the material, which helps to adhere the color to the boards. Then, the color is baked on, so it’s extremely resistant to cracking, chipping, and peeling, even 15 years after installation. This built-in UV resistance helps James Hardie products stand above competitors, as the color will outlast a typical siding paint job. 

James Hardie Siding Style Options

Choosing the right siding color is only one part of selecting your replacement siding. You’ll also have to think about the style that will best reflect your aesthetic. Fortunately, James Hardie siding has no shortage of styles available, including the following: 

  • HardieShingle® Siding, which is ideal for cottages or those wanting to create a rustic exterior
  • HardiePlank® Lap Siding, which is a classic horizontal plank option that is traditional and versatile
  • HardiePanel® Vertical Siding, which is a traditional plank option that is installed vertically either as an accent or a whole-home look
  • James Hardie Aspyre Collection: This collection of siding materials caters to high end designers looking to add a flare of luxury to a home’s exterior.

Our siding experts would be happy to tell you more about these style options and help you select the best one for your exterior.

  • It’s fire resistant: James Hardie siding will not ignite. It does not serve as an accelerant, and it does not melt or give off any type of toxic fumes.
