Are you tired of your old aluminum siding? Have you had enough of scraping and repainting your wood siding every few years? Are you ready to consider an energy-efficient home siding solution? Then take a look at James Hardie fiber cement board siding. The popularity of this product has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, and fiber cement board siding is fast becoming the standard in the industry.
The James Hardie Company is the leading manufacturer of this product. Hardie was the first company to introduce fiber cement board siding, and they have developed a product line that is designed to fit local climates. They have divided the country up into regional zones, and engineered their siding to be best suited to that environment. This means the siding is less likely to shift or react with the weather, so no more periodic repairs or re-caulking. Because they are made from cement, the siding boards are extremely durable and will withstand some of the harshest environments. In the South, James Hardie siding has been known to stand up to hurricane-type winds with flying debris; in the North it will hold up against the most bitter cold. Because it is engineered siding, James Hardie cement boards are made to fit together tightly, with caps and seals that will insulate your home as much as any home can be insulated. It’s so durable that in many cases it can be expected to outlast the homeowner.
You might think that James Hardie siding is more expensive than the other options available, but it is truly cost efficient. Even though vinyl siding costs less at first, it doesn’t compare to the long-lasting qualities of cement board. Cement boards will not fade or warp, and they are engineered with a wood-grain look, so they have a natural look but with much stronger properties and far less maintenance.
