James Hardie siding is known to last a long time, and there’s a reason for that. This special siding is made using a precise blend of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers, allowing it to withstand severe weather, pests, color fading, rot, and more. What makes James Hardie Siding a low-maintenance siding solution liked by many homeowners and siding contractors?
Resistant To Weather
As the years pass, you will find that Hardie siding can stand up to hail and heavy winds that blow debris. It is ideal for handling extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, making it the best solution for Chicago winters and summers.
Will Not Combust
As Hardie Board siding is made up of fiber cement, it will not catch fire to allow flames and smoke to spread.
Carpenter ants, termites, and other invasive pests like to burrow into the siding. When that happens, they can cause serious damage to your home’s exterior. But Hardie Board will not attract these pests, keeping your home safe.
Limits Moisture Damage
Water can damage your home gradually. If it seeps into your siding, your home can become more exposed through cracks, swelling, paint chips, rot, and mold. Hardie Board siding is engineered to deter water, so moisture doesn’t get in, to begin with.
Woodpeckers love wood siding for shelter and to find delicious insects. The damage these birds can cause might leave you with a very expensive repair bill.
Get those woodpeckers looking elsewhere to find something appealing to them by using James Hardie Siding. It is impervious to woodpeckers, so they will have no choice but to leave your home alone.
Enduring ColorPlus® Technology
Hardie siding manufacturers bake the color right into the siding itself for a more durable and consistent color pattern than traditional painted wood boards and vinyl. The color on other types of siding materials can fade very quickly, but Hardie siding can withstand the damaging UV rays of the sum.
