Pros of Hardie Board Siding
Hardie Board siding withstands the elements with ease. It keeps looking amazing and performing its job of protecting your home in spite of its direct contact with the elements 24/7. It withstands rain, hail, high winds, storms, snow, ice, harsh humidity, and temperature changes. It resists moisture penetration, saving homeowners the hassles involved in repairs due to rotting, swelling, or warping.
Eye-catching curb appeal
Hardie Board siding is beautiful and gives your home pleasing aesthetics. It makes your home stand out and can even look like wood siding, but it’s not, so you don’t have to be burdened with the high maintenance wood requires.
Hardie Board siding resists pests including termites and carpenter ants. It’s also woodpecker resistant, so you don’t have to worry about the hassles of repairing termite or woodpecker damage.
James Hardie fiber cement siding gives homeowners a 30-year non-prorated warranty that is transferable. Other siding companies may decrease their warranty coverage on their siding products as the years after installation increase, but not the James Hardie company. And that’s a significant perk for homeowners. Additionally, James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology is warrantied against peeling, chipping, and cracking for 15 years—including labor and materials.
The multiple styles of Hardie Board siding give you plenty of options from which to choose. Match your home’s architectural style and your personal preferences with your choice of Hardie Board siding styles. Create the look you love with the perfect color selection of James Hardie siding.
Fiber cement siding won’t contribute to a fire because it isn’t combustible. Other siding products like wood will actually fuel a fire. But Hardie Board siding gives you and your family the added protection to give you peace of mind about your safety in case of a fire.
The James Hardie Company takes the guesswork out of installation by training their installation professionals and then allowing them to advertise they are James Hardie Preferred Contractors. This helps homeowners have confidence in their siding contractor, and assures optimal installation results. Their rigorous standards for their approved contractors ensure homeowners get all the advantages of the James Hardie outstanding warranty.
James Hardie siding is the greenest siding brand in the industry because of the product’s ingredients and the James Hardie Company’s sustainable practices.
Hardie Board siding requires almost no maintenance year-round. Simply take your garden hose and a medium bristle nylon brush to clean it twice a year.
Cons of Hardie Board siding
There are so many pros, it offsets the con for this siding material: the initial cost. Hardie Board siding is a greater financial investment than vinyl siding, but it lasts longer too. So as you consider this aspect of your decision, realize you will enjoy this outstanding siding for up to 50 years. This investment also boosts your resale value and gives you one of the highest returns on investment (ROI) in the remodeling industry.
Longer installation process
The heavy weight of Hardie Board siding makes it more challenging to handle than other siding materials, so it is more difficult to install. Installation should only be done by James Hardie trained professionals to ensure the warranty stays intact.
Possible repainting after 15 years
There is some maintenance needed on Hardie Board siding after approximately 15 years. The ColorPlus® Technology warranty covers your siding’s color for 15 years, and then you may need to repaint it.
