If you’re looking for new siding for your home, consider James Hardie® siding. Although it generally costs a bit more than vinyl siding, it offers superior strength and beauty. Still unsure if it’s the right siding for your home? Keep reading, we think you’ll agree it’s a great option.

More Durable Than Vinyl

James Hardie siding is virtually indestructible. Errant baseballs and soccer balls won’t leave a dent. Plus, it stands up to large hail and strong winds that would damage or rip off vinyl or aluminum siding. It’s also much more fire resistant than vinyl siding and heat from a bar-b-que grill won’t cause it to melt.

Less Maintenance Than Wood

Unlike wood siding, pests have no interest in fiber cement siding. That can mean you’re not fighting pests trying to get into your home. And, when you choose a pre-finished option from James Hardie, you won’t have to repaint it for more than ten years. Most of the time you’ll only need to hose off dirt or mildew.

Other Benefits of James Hardie Siding

Because it’s pest resistant and tough against hail plus it’s more fire resistant than vinyl, your homeowner’s insurance may offer you a discount on your policy. You’ll also find that it’s more energy efficient than vinyl siding. Because of the composition of fiber cement siding, it doesn’t expand and contract like vinyl siding. This leads to fewer places for heat or cold to get into your home. And, when we include the insulative wrap underneath your new siding, you’ll notice that your home is more comfortable and you have lower energy usage. And home buyers see fiber cement siding as a superior option to vinyl. This can mean that your home sells faster or for more money than a comparable home with vinyl siding.
