Featuring James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding
The need for siding is no longer just a desire to have the best-looking house on the block, but to lower your utility bills and seal the outside weather from entering your home.
One of the most popular choices these days is fiber cement board. It is durable, it can have the closest look to real wood, it is fireproof and it is even approved frequently for restoration work on historic buildings. In addition to keeping the weather out and the heating/cooling in, it is weather and fade resistant and has such a pleasing look.
Fiber Cement vs. Vinyl Siding
Developed by the James Hardie Company as a green asbestos replacement, fiber cement siding offers many more options, and is considered fireproof. Vinyl siding can melt under intense heat.
Fire-resistant & has been approved for any fire-rated building needs.
Will melt or burn when exposed to a considerable source of flame or high temp.
Has paint applied & baked on in the factory to offer 30% more fade resistance than other similar products.
Susceptible to fading at different degrees which creates a great deviation in its built-in color that cannot be changed.
More weather resistant, resisting deterioration, distortion, cracking, winds up to 150 mph and hail damage.
Prone to becoming brittle when exposed to sun or extreme cold for long periods of time. It is easily damaged by any wind-blown object as well as hail.
Very thick and is able to provide more depth in appearance especially looking more like real wood in appearance.
Not extremely thick and is not available in very many styles, especially a wood grain appearance.
