A Guide to the James Hardie® Siding Installation Process

If your home exterior is showing signs of major damage, you may think about replacing your siding. This will spruce up your home’s aesthetic while providing better protection against harmful elements. Make sure to choose quality siding for your home that will offer the best features.

At Colonial Remodeling, we recommend James Hardie®, one of the top brands in the industry. Their fiber cement siding offers the best resistance against flame, moisture, pests, and shifting climates. It also offers energy efficiency to provide comfort for your home while reducing your energy costs. As an Elite Preferred James Hardie Contractor, let us share the process of James Hardie installation in Alexandria, VA:

Removal of Old Siding

The best way to start the process is to completely remove your old siding. This will prevent the existing issues of your old siding from transferring to the new one. This will also help us install the new siding with ease. As long as you execute this step correctly, you can enjoy the full potential of your new James Hardie® fiber cement siding.

Damage Inspection

Once we remove your old siding in Arlington, VA, we will inspect your home for damage. We will check for signs of moisture damage that might harm your foundation. We will also inspect for mold growth and infestations, which can put your household’s health at risk. After we assess your property, we will make the necessary repairs and treatments to prevent structural problems in the future.

Application of Weather-Resistant Barrier

In compliance with the building code requirements, we will apply a HardieWrap® weather barrier between your exterior siding and your interior walls. This will prevent water and air penetration as well as energy leakage. Having this second line of defense will ensure your comfort during rough weather conditions while cutting your energy costs.

As a James Hardie Elite Preferred remodelor, Colonial Remodeling complies with the manufacturer’s strict guidelines. Rest assured that with our quality workmanship, you can enjoy the full benefits of your new siding.

You can count on us for all your exterior needs. Aside from James Hardie products, we also offer Mastic vinyl siding in Fairfax, VA, a cost-effective product that offers lasting beauty and protection for your home.
