James Hardie Siding Products Features

  • View 1

    • Low Maintenance Color:

      ColorPlus Technology combines a process, perfect factory conditions and paint designed specifically for our products.

      You don't have to paint the boards after they're installed, and maintenance will be low due to the thickness, evenness and long lasting nature of the finish.

      Multiple colors available.

    • Resistant to Pests:

      Termits, squirrels and woodpeckers can damage wood and vinyl siding. If you have James Hardie materials on your home you can rest assured you have products that are going to stand up to the pesky critters.

    • Holds Up Against the Elements:

      High wind, precipitation, hail…all effects of summer or winter stroms. James Hardie products stand up against repetitive rough weather for a strong, longer lasting exterior - year after year.

    • Board Thickness:

      James Hardie siding is 5x thicker than vinyl, offering greater strength and durability.

    • Complete Exterior: Multi-Product Solution:

      It’s a full wrap solution: wrap, siding products, trim, soffit and fascia.

      Get the most out of the durability and low maintenance offered by Hardie products: same paint adhesion, aesthetic, quality, and of course warranty.

    • Engineered to Last:

      Only James Hardie products come engineered for climate. What does this mean? It means that the products in your store are designed to perform in the weather climates specific to your area. Siding, trim, wrap and soffit are engineered for climate so you (and your exterior) are covered.

    • The Best Product Warranty:

      Thirty (30) years, non-prorated. This means 100% coverage over the span of the warranty. Many competitors offer warranties for a longer period of time, but with dissipating coverage.

    • Sustainability:

      Longer lasting materials not only require fewer resources for replacement but also reduce maintenance and repair costs; this is inherently sustainable. However our siding products have several LEED certifications and are considered to be "green and sustainable" by industry professionals.
