Benefits of James Hardie Siding
The content of James Hardie siding provides many benefits. The siding is made of fiber cement material, which is composed of Portland cement, sand, water, and cellulose fibers. Here are some of the benefits:
Fiber Cement has non-combustible qualities and is environmentally friendly. If you live near a forested area or have many trees around your home, you need a siding that does not succumb to fire easily. Fiber cement siding, three-coat stucco, and metal siding are three types you have from which to choose. James Hardie siding is low-maintenance and competitively prices as compared to other options.
Resistant to Water Damage and Rotting
Hardie siding resists moisture damage. It will not rot, crack, swell, de-laminate, warp, or buckle. James Hardie has a complete system to ensure your home is snug and climate-controlled. Hardie siding has designed an integrated system for protecting your home from the sheathing outward. These are products in the Hardie siding selection that take your home protection to a new level:
- Weather Barrier – HardieWrap® weather barrier gives your home breathability and water resistance by keeping the space between the exterior and interior walls dry. It helps prevent mildew, mold, and energy loss as well.
- Pro-Flashing – HardieWrap® Pro-Flashing is a self-adhesive butyl rubber that peels and sticks around windows and doors, prevents water intrusion and air infiltration. It self-seals around fasteners driven through it.
- Flex Flashing – HardieWrap® Flex Flashing stretches easily and seals around hard-to-fit shapes like custom, bay, or bow windows and door sills. Flex Flashing keeps water and air from entering your home.
- Seam Tape – HardieWrap® Seam Tape is the perfect adhesive for Weather Barrier and Flex Flashing. It enables the envelope around your home to be impenetrable by air and water, even at the seams.
Durability Over Time
Siding is exposed to the elements all day, every day. Weather, water, time, fire and pests can lead to trouble and issues. James Hardie tests their siding products to withstand worst-case scenarios such as hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms, and other severe weather. Not only do the extremes break down siding, but especially the change of seasons and temperatures. Other materials like vinyl (can crack in the cold over time) and wood products (expand and contract with changes in moisture and humidity) don’t hold up after many years. Fiber cement products by James Hardie are Engineered for Climate®.
The Hardie™ Zone system was developed after studying the long-term effects that different climates have on siding. The U.S. comprises the HZ5 and the HZ10. HZ5 is the majority of the U.S. that has wet and freezing conditions while the HZ10 is more southern areas where heat, humidity, blistering sun, and mild winters are prevalent.
Resistant to Termites, Carpenter Ants, and Other Pests
Because Hardie siding is thick, heavy, and durable, pests can’t damage it. Insects, woodpeckers, and other animals can’t drill or chew holes into the fiber cement, so the siding retains its protective surface. The siding doesn’t expand and contract as much as other siding materials. This means there are no gaps that give the opportunity for insects and other pests to nest.
James Hardie siding is practically maintenance free. You don’t have to repair rot, replace boards that have cracked, or fix pest damage. The best maintenance task you can do is to power wash it once a year or every couple of years to get the grime and dirt that builds up. This keeps it looking fresh and helps maintain the paint. Regarding painting, Hardie siding only needs to be painted every ten to twenty years.
Versatility in Style and Siding Options
James Hardie siding offers versatility in style and siding solution. There are many styles and profiles of siding boards as well as different types of trim, soffit, and fascia. From traditional horizontal lap to scallop shingle siding, there is a style that fits most people’s needs and wants. You can also customize your board size and color in order to create the perfect siding for your home.
