James Hardie ColorPlus Technology is a state-of-the-art finishing system that provides exceptional color consistency on every siding product in a wide range of colors. In addition, James Hardie siding is warranted not to rot, warp, or be damaged by hail or winds up to 150 mph. There is no control over the weather, but that does not mean you have no control over the siding you choose. James Hardie offers fiber-cement siding
that resists severe climates and damage by precipitation. That means you can rest assured knowing the weather outside is not affecting your siding.
Alternative siding products allow moisture to promote rot. If you have wood siding, rain, snow and humidity are all hazardous to your home. Moisture can also have an adverse effect on a home with vinyl siding. Since it’s not tightly nailed, but rather hung loosely
to allow for expansion and contraction, moisture can build behind panels potentially
penetrating the structure of your home.
The good news is that James Hardie Siding is made of fiber cement so it does not undergo the same degree of expansion and contraction that wood-based and vinyl
sidings do. James Hardie Siding holds onto paint three to four times longer than wood siding, reducing your overall maintenance costs. It is a fully engineered complete coating system that is environmentally controlled, and saves you approximately $5000 over 8 years.
Many homeowners forget to consider the costs and concerns associated with painting the siding that they choose. Wood siding eventually cracks and warps with even the highest-quality paints. So it begs to be scraped, sanded, primed, and repainted every 3-5 years, sometimes sooner. This type of maintenance is hard work and takes a long time, so hiring a painter each time would be extremely expensive. Consider siding for your home and think about the benefits that James Hardie siding will offer you in the long-run.
