James Hardie siding is a composite siding made of cement, sand and wood pulp. The product became popular when asbestos siding was determined to be unsafe and another durable product was needed to withstand the ever changing climates.
Many styles and colors of James Hardie are available to choose from which allows the homeowner to maintain the character of the home. Other manufacturers have tried to replicate the James Hardie product but thus far have failed to stand up to the quality and longevity that James Hardie set in place.
Although it may be above average in cost compared to vinyl siding and other products it adds great value to the home where installed.
Installing Hardie siding takes approximately three times longer to install than vinyl siding and may require each homeowner to be a bit more patient with the process and the outcome. It is the labor in addition to the product that raises the cost of the job. We guarantee you will not be disappointed in the choices made when choosing James Hardie Siding
