This is where James Hardie siding products come into play.

Unrivaled Durability

James Hardie’s HardiePlank® lap siding proudly holds the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute—a prestigious endorsement awarded only after stringent evaluations. The siding underwent independent testing for factors such as fading, weather resistance, water resistance, fire resistance, and more, excelling in every aspect.

Tailored to Climate

Unlike competing products, James Hardie siding and trim are meticulously engineered to withstand the specific climate of their installation. This means your siding is optimized for the real-world conditions it will face, ensuring superior performance and a longer lifespan.

Sophisticated Aesthetics

The exclusive ColorPlus® Technology ensures that your home siding maintains its appealing appearance for an extended period, guaranteed. The siding undergoes multiple rounds of painting and curing with a proprietary finish at the factory, providing optimal coverage, vibrant color, and resistance to chipping, peeling, and cracking. A variety of carefully curated color options are available to enhance the visual appeal of different homes with coordinating styles.

Exceptional Value

While James Hardie siding may have a higher upfront cost than vinyl, the long-term value is incomparable. Fiber cement not only looks superior but also exhibits exceptional resistance to mold, swelling, and cracking. It does not attract pests, is noncombustible, and is hail-damage resistant. The significant difference in quality can even lead to potential reductions in home insurance premiums.

Furthermore, all James Hardie siding products come with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty, and trim products are backed by a 15-year, non-prorated warranty.
