Why Discerning Homeowners Love Fiber Cement Siding

Of all the siding options available, fiber cement is the favorite of builders and homeowners alike. An excellent alternative to wood, fiber cement siding is superior to other siding materials for many reasons.

Why Discerning Homeowners Love Fiber Cement Siding

Here’s why experienced home remodeling experts like Colonial Remodeling love James Hardie® fiber cement siding products:

Versatile Beauty

Fiber cement is practically indistinguishable from genuine timber. Emulating wood’s texture and style realistically, it can accentuate your home’s architectural authenticity, whether you want the look of planks or shingles.

Fiber cement can be primed and ready for field painting or pre-finished. It can be colored however you want to boost curb appeal. With ColorPlus® Technology, James Hardie siding is available with a long-lasting finish, which is 50% thicker than the finish on other types of siding.

Incredible Durability

Though fiber cement looks like wood, structurally it has more in common with concrete. It contains Portland cement, allowing it to wear like masonry. It won’t melt, sag or warp with extreme heat, nor does it rot due to moisture exposure. It’s resistant to fire, mold and pests and can withstand almost anything Mother Nature throws at it.

With James Hardie fiber cement, you get an entire siding system specifically engineered for your local climate. It can resist the effects of cold weather and snow, keeping your home dry, comfortable and structurally sound for decades.

Low Maintenance

James Hardie products need very little care and attention to stay in pristine condition. Cured between coats in a controlled environment, ColorPlus finishes are immune to cracking, peeling and chipping. Unlike paint products, they’re impervious to fading and will remain vibrant for many years after your siding installation. If you follow James Hardie’s recommended cleaning methods, you can rid your siding panel of dirt, oil, grease and other organic contaminants easily and safely.
