Getting to know James Hardie Siding

James Hardie siding was created decades ago and is made of fiber cement. There are three ingredients used in the manufacturing process, which include cellulose fiber from plant materials, cement, and sand. These materials are combined and dyed, then formed into boards. Thanks to the unique manufacturing process, James Hardie siding is available in several finished looks. This material is noncombustible and environmentally friendly, and that’s just a few of the amazing benefits offered by this brand of siding.

Why James Hardie Siding Is Right for You

Our team loves James Hardie siding due to the array of benefits it offers. You simply cannot beat the value for the price. Here are some of the top benefits:

1. Extreme Durability

Hardie siding has been engineered to work in specific climates. This means you can feel confident the material we install for your home or business will withstand anything Mother Nature throws its way. Moisture, rot, and UV resistance, altitude specifications, and more will not weaken or impact your siding’s quality and durability.

2. Cost vs. Value

According to Remodeling Magazine’s Annual Cost vs Value Report, replacing your siding with fiber cement is the best value amongst all traditional siding replacement options in Chicago, the Midwest, and nationally. In fact, the only projects that net a higher return for your home nationally than fiber cement siding are a midrange minor kitchen remodel, garage door replacement, and manufactured stone veneer. In the Chicago market, window replacements are on par with a fiber cement siding replacement. (Shameless plug: we can and do take on all of those projects and more!)

3. Long-Lasting Paint Finish

If you are like many and dread painting your home every seven years or so, then Hardie just may be the answer for you! With the ColorPlus® warranty, you are getting a baked-on finish designed specifically for fiber cement and warrantied for 15 years against fading, chipping, and peeling!

4. Long-Lasting Product

Thanks to the unique manufacturing process, James Hardie siding will not crack, rot, warp, or buckle. It can resist the growth of mildew and mold – even in high humidity. When you hire our team for installation, and the siding is properly maintained through the years (maintenance is minimal for all James Hardie siding products), you can count on this material to last.

5. Low Maintenance Requirements

Not only will James Hardie siding not buckle, rot, warp, or crack. Even better, keeping it clean is simple. All you have to do is wash the surface every six to 12 months with your garden house and soft brush. Also, since the color never fades, you do not have to worry about applying new paint every few years, unlike wood siding options. Thanks to minimal maintenance requirements, it is possible to keep costs down, which means more money stays in your wallet.

6. Fire Resistance

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. Because it is non-combustible and hail-damage resistant, it an actually sometimes help reduce insurance premiums. Ask your agent for more details.

7. Storm Resistance

It is important to mention this because storms can pop up at any point and cause serious damage to homes and other structures in the local area. However, regardless of if you are dealing with wind, hail, or rain, James Hardie siding will resist impacts.

8. Pest Resistance

Mother Nature’s creatures can wreak havoc on certain siding types, whether wood, OSB, or wood-composite, whether insects or birds! Woodpeckers are especially fond of wood homes. While Hardie may look like wood, it offers little appeal to these critters and it won’t be eaten by termites. So you can focus on the animals in your home, not on it!
