4 Reasons James Hardie® is the Superior Siding Choice

If you are looking for the right combination of beautiful design and reliable performance for your siding, trust America’s most popular siding choice, James Hardie®. These premium fiber cement products have set James Hardie apart in this very competitive industry. Nonetheless, why should you choose James Hardie siding in Arlington, VA, for your siding project?

Superior Siding

Let Colonial Remodeling provide four reasons to reside your home with James Hardie fiber cement:

1. It’s Engineered for Climate®. Different climate conditions require distinct kinds of resistance, from extreme desert heat to constant freezing temperatures. No matter what climate zone you are in, there is a James Hardie siding and trim that is specifically engineered for your home.  Here at Colonial Remodeling, we use James Hardie fiber cement products from the Northeast product line, which are engineered for the heat and humidity of the DC Metro Area.

2. It’s more heat-resistant than vinyl. When choosing James Hardie or vinyl siding in Fairfax, VA, choose the one that is five times thicker. Our fiber cement siding gives allowance for deeper grooves and more authentic wood-grain textures. In addition, vinyl is extremely vulnerable to the effects of extreme heat: melting, cracking and warping. Fortunately, James Hardie siding is much more durable and can withstand extreme temperatures with ease.

3. It has better value for money. The problem with wood products, aside from their premium price, is their inherent vulnerability to the effects of moisture absorption, extreme temperatures, and mold growth. Wood composite is equally vulnerable to moisture. James Hardie siding, on the other hand, lasts much longer and requires very little maintenance, so you are able to acheive a natural, wood-grain look without the constant upkeep.

4. It holds paint better than PVC. PVC and certain kinds of wood tend to buckle under extreme heat, creating bubbles and cracks on the paint layer. James Hardie siding doesn’t have that problem; in fact, it doesn’t need painting at all!  This feature is due to the ColorPlus Technology finishes of the fiber cement.  There is an array of gorgeous James Hardie colors in McLean, VA available when you decide to embark on your siding project.
