Although there is a wide variety of siding options available in the market, a James Hardie® product is still the most recommended material by most experts. This is primarily because its material is created to withstand the extreme climate conditions in North America. Fortunately, you’ll only find fire retardant siding James Hardie products offered by certified contractors such as Peninsula Siding Company, Inc. We can also help clients choose the right type of siding with HardieZone® System.
What Is HardieZone?
It can be noted that HardieZone doesn’t use the Köppen system but instead bases it on a proprietary climate classification. It breaks the United States into 10 “zones” and the eight climatic variables. James Hardie has designated a unique HardieZone product line for zones 1-5 and zones 6-10.
What HardieZone Offers
HZ5®. SmartSide® contractors and experts would recommend this product line for climates that have freezing temperatures and extreme seasonal temperature variations. To ensure its beauty matches its resilience, the surface has been engineered for higher performance to provide superior paint adhesion and moisture resistance. A drip edge has also been added for improved water management.
HZ10®. This is a well-known James Hardie product that offers consistent and reliable durability. This product line is made for areas with hurricane-force winds, the salty sea air of the coast, and the brutal, humid heat of the Deep South. Consequently, it resists splitting, cracking, and swelling, even after a hot, humid, and tropical storm season.
