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 we partner with James Hardie’s hardworking products. James Hardie Siding is engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements.
In case of a fire, you want to know that walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire feasts on wood, and it melts vinyl almost instantly. But James Hardie siding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.
Because James Hardie products are non-combustible, many insurance companies offer a discount. We recommend sharing fiber-cement siding’s fire-resistance qualities with your insurance carrier.
Insusceptible To Pests
Mother Nature’s creatures can wreak havoc on some types of siding. Because it’s wood, OSB or wood-composite siding can be pecked by birds and damaged by insects.
James Hardie fiber cement siding offers little appeal to critters and won’t be eaten by termites. So you can focus on the animals in your life that actually make you happy.
Severe weather will test the strength of your home. Hail and blizzards hit hard and fast. Extreme droughts and relentless heat can go on and on. Your choice of siding, along with proper installation, can help your home stand up to these unpredictable elements.
