If you’re in the market to replace the siding on your home, the number of choices may be overwhelming at first. James Hardie, otherwise known as fiber cement board siding, presents a durable and high-quality choice for your exterior home renovation. Made of fiber-cement materials, it’s one of the strongest sidings on the market and offers a variety of benefits.
Longevity: One of the main benefits of Hardie board siding is its longevity. Much of James Hardie siding comes with a 50-year warranty, with limited transferability. Aside from the warranty, the siding is extremely durable — it is rot and insect resistant, and can even withstand extensive salt spraying from the ocean. It is also fire resistant, making it nearly indestructible from even the strongest natural elements including hail, wind, and snow. This ensures your siding will not crack, warp or become damaged after a strong storm. It’s also climate-adaptable, which guarantees that no matter the climate, you can be sure Hardie siding will work for your home.
Flexibility: Another great thing about James Hardie siding is its flexibility and range of colors. With its ColorPlus Technology, there are endless options of colors you can get for your home. These also include a computer-matched option that can match your current siding color to a James Hardie siding, if you didn’t want to change your home’s exterior color. Additionally, the color is fade resistant, adding to your home’s curb appeal for years to come.
Return on Investment: If cost is a concern, know that there are several benefits to investing in James Hardie. For example, homeowners that have Hardie board siding on average pay 14 percent less on their home insurance premiums than homeowners that use traditional vinyl siding. Additionally, siding adds value to your home, if you are looking to add equity or resale value.
If you are thinking of replacing your siding, James Hardie siding is an excellent choice for peace of mind. Virtually indestructible, and with a 50-year warranty, you can rest assured that your home’s siding will be covered for years to come.
