Your home protects you from the elements, and siding is the first line of defense against the Colorado sun, rain, wind and snow. If you decide your siding needs to be replaced, you want to choose a material you can place your full confidence in.
James Hardie siding, also known as Hardie board siding, could be the right replacement product for your home. More than 5.5 million American homes feature this unique material. It’s made from fiber cement designed to mimic the look of traditional wood siding, but without the maintenance. Consider four reasons to choose Hardie Board.
James Hardie Siding Withstands All Types of Weather
You want your home’s siding to last for years, but this involves exposing it directly to the elements for countless seasons. The makers of James Hardie siding have studied the long-term effects of climate on siding and created the HardieZone system as the result of their findings. Here’s how it works:
HZ5 products are designed for use on homes in climate zones 1-5. They withstand wet and freezing conditions.
HZ10 products are made for homes in climate zones 6-10. They protect homes against heat, high humidity, and blistering sun.
Colorado is in zone 5, so that means your home needs an HZ5 siding product for the best results.
James Hardie Siding Lasts (Nearly) Forever
Many Hardie board siding products come with a 30-year warranty and last many years longer than this. As an added bonus, James Hardie siding requires little to no maintenance, saving you time and money over the lifetime of the product. It’s all thanks to choosing a siding product designed to stand up to the unique demands of the climate here in Colorado.
James Hardie Siding is Impact Resistant
A tough, resilient product, James Hardie siding is more impact resistant than many other types of siding. This means, whether you’re hoping to avoid dents from a summertime hailstorm or nicks caused by your kids playing baseball in the backyard, Hardie board is up to the task. Greater impact resistance means your siding will look like new for longer, saving you money on repairs and replacements in the future.
James Hardie Siding Resists Rot and Pests
Water is one of the most destructive forces your home can face. Even slow, relentless drips can be detrimental, causing the wood siding to swell, mold, crack and rot. This could be detrimental to your home’s structural integrity as water infiltrates the first line of defense.
With Hardie board standing between your home and water on the outside, you don’t have to worry about moisture and rot permeating your home. Also, since this product isn’t made from wood, it offers little appeal to termites and woodpeckers.
