James Hardie

Beautiful & Durable Siding.


When it comes to long lasting durability and bold design, James Hardie siding is one of the premier options for today’s homeowner. One of the best ways to spruce up the design of your home is to reside it. Few options compare with the bold, durable look and feel of Fiber Cement siding. Traditional lap, shake, or board and batten options are great ways to add a facelift or even provide a total home makeover.

Why James Hardie?

Investing back into your biggest investment, your home, is a necessary part of homeownership. When it comes to maintaining or improving your home, James Hardie provides the durability, elegance, and beauty that warrants the cost. Although there is more initial up-front cost with James Hardie, the long-term advantages of Fiber Cement Siding outweigh the lower-cost, cheaper vinyl.

How you feel about your home matters deeply. At Shield Home Exteriors we want each and every one of our customers to enjoy their space and feel the joy of a polished, reliable home able to provide durable, comfortable shelter for decades to come.

And when it comes to home siding, achieving this level of customer satisfaction can be a challenge. Siding is directly exposed to Mother Nature’s relentless wear and tear all day, every day, for decades. From rain to snow, sleet, baking sun, pests, and even fire there are countless reasons for your siding to fail prematurely.

That’s why we invite you to consider James Hardie siding products.

Peerless Durability

HardiePlank® lap siding by James Hardie is backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, a high mark of quality granted only after a product’s rigorous evaluation. In fact, the siding was independently tested to measuring fading, weather, water, fire resistance and much more. And through all of if, the products excelled.

Climate Specific

Unlike other products, James Hardie siding and trim is engineered to withstand the specific climate in which it is installed. This means your product is optimized for the real world conditions it will experience, and able to perform better and last longer because of it.

Elegant Appearance

Exclusive ColorPlus® Technology yields a home siding solution that looks better for longer, guaranteed. Right from the factory the siding is painted and cured repeatedly with a proprietary finish for optimal coverage, dramatic color, and resistance to chipping, peeling and cracking. A number of color options are available; each carefully curated and selected to look great on a variety of homes with coordinating colors and styles.

Exceptional Value

As a premium product, James Hardie siding has a higher up-front cost than vinyl. But this cost differential is more than made up for in long-term value. Fiber cement looks better, has superior resistance to mold, swelling, and cracking, does not attract pests, is noncombustible, and is hail-damage resistant. The difference is so great that James Hardie products can even—in some circumstances—reduce home insurance premiums when installed!

And keep in mind that all James Hardie siding products come with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty and trim products come with a 15-year, non-prorated warranty.
