James Hardie Siding: Stronger, Brighter, Better

Stronger, Brighter, Better

When you drive through the neighborhood that you want to build your home in, what do you notice? What most people see, first and foremost, is the selection of siding used on the houses in the neighborhood. Yes, we see the lawn, the people, the spectacular details that some houses sport, but subconsciously what we all really notice is the siding. This is where the color comes from, the patterns, the canvas upon which the architect and builders of those homes worked. That said, you may notice that some houses look… dimmer. The siding has been worn down by weather and climate, by the wear and tear that nature provides every day.

 

Tough and Beautiful

That’s where James Hardie siding comes in. The siding is incredibly resilient, owing to its cement fiber materials; this is far better than the typical vinyl siding that you see on most other homes, as vinyl is notoriously fragile and easy to damage. Indeed, many of the houses you see that sport vinyl siding will have damage to their siding, discoloration, and more; James Hardie siding, however, is very tough indeed, and this helps to protect the coloring of the siding as well. You don’t need to worry that your home will look worn and discolored after a few years with Hardie siding.

 

Spoiled for Choices

Another great advantage of choosing James Hardie siding is the wide variety of siding choices that you have. While vinyl siding can be damaged and worn down, it is still one of the toughest sidings you can choose; thus, clapboard and other siding choices that might be more aesthetically appealing to you go unchosen. With James Hardie siding, you can have any appearance for your siding, including clapboard or other materials, and still have siding that is tougher and longer-lasting than vinyl siding. What more could you ask for?
