Why James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding Is Better
There are several reasons why James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding is a better choice than vinyl, wood or metal. Here are some examples:
Wide variety of colors. There are 15 factory colors to choose from in O’Fallon, Illinois. And, if you want another color that they don’t offer, you can order the siding primed so it can be painted in any color imaginable on delivery.
Minimal maintenance. Fiber cement siding doesn’t have to be cleaned as often. If you notice dirt and debris on it, simply use your garden hose and a soft cloth, sponge or brush to wipe clean. No harsh chemicals or power washing is needed.
Durability. Fiber cement is a material that wears well and lasts long. It won’t crack or dent easily. The color is baked on and resists fading. James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding is designed with the regional climate in mind, so you’ll get the siding that’s best for the weather.
Non-combustible. JH fiber cement siding has been approved for fire-related construction.
Pest-resistant. Unlike wood, fiber cement is not susceptible to termites and other pests.
Great curb appeal. Fiber cement siding has the aesthetic look of wood, without the negative aspects, like susceptibility to pests, fire, and weather.
Lasts for decades. James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding comes with a 30-50 year warranty.
