Fiber Cement Siding Advantages


There are many reasons more than 8 million homeowners have chosen James Hardie fiber cement siding for their homes. Not only is it beautiful, but it is incredibly durable. Fiber cement siding’s composition makes it resistant to fires, insects, and rot. In many cases, you can expect it to last the entire lifetime of your home. 

Why Choose James Hardie Over the Competition?

James Hardie developed fiber cement siding over 100 years ago while researching building materials that could withstand extreme weather conditions. They continue to be the world leader in high-performance fiber cement and fiber gypsum building solutions. James Hardie has become synonymous with fiber cement siding. Its beauty, durability, and outstanding warranty are just a few reasons to choose James Hardie over other products on the market. 

5 Reasons to Choose James Hardie Siding

1. Natural Looking But Better!

James Hardie siding provides the natural visual aesthetic appeal of wood with none of the maintenance problems. Unlike natural wood, fiber cement siding will not rot and does not appeal to insects or animals that eat wood fibers, such as carpenter ants, termites, and woodpeckers. It also does not support the growth of fungi. 

2. Improved Safety and Savings

Fiber cement siding is not just fire-resistant; it’s completely non-combustible. It won’t burn or ignite due to fire or extreme heat. Because James Hardie products are non-combustible, many insurance companies offer homeowners a discount. 

3. Engineered for Kansas City

James Hardie is the only company that manufactures siding and trim products for specific climates, ensuring homeowners receive the best performance for their region. The HardieZone® System protects against extreme weather conditions and seasonal transitions, ensuring James Hardie fiber cement products are long-lasting and beautiful.

4. Boosts Curb Appeal

One reason to invest in replacement siding is to beautify your home’s exterior. James Hardie siding comes in various textures and styles that can be combined for a unique look. It comes primed for painting in any color you like, or you can select siding with Hardie’s unique ColorPlus® Technology. With multiple styles, textures, and colors to choose from, homeowners can easily find the right combination to complement their home’s architectural style.

5. Long-Term Durability

James Hardie siding is the best choice if you want reliable siding products that last a long time, withstand weather extremes, and require little maintenance. Hail, wind, extreme temperatures, and fire can damage or destroy vinyl siding. James Hardie siding lasts, on average, between 30-50 years with minimal upkeep.
