Siding is exposed to Mother Nature all day, every day, for years. Weather, water, time, fire and pests—all can lead to trouble. That’s why James Hardie’s hardworking products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements. You want to ensure you’re buying the best possible product when you choose to re-side. James Hardie invented fiber cement and remains the leader in the field. Here’s what you’ll get when you invest in James Hardie siding and trim. Fiber cement costs less than wood, doesn’t attract pests, and resists water absorption to help protect against mold, swelling and cracking—buying you more mileage for your dollar. James Hardie is the only siding company that engineers siding and trim products for specific climates, ensuring that you get the best performance for your region. Baked-on ColorPlus® Technology has greater resistance to fading, chipping and cracking, meaning less maintenance for you. Since fiber cement siding (unlike vinyl) is non-combustible and hail-damage resistant, it can sometimes help reduce home insurance premiums.
