Wood is a known siding material because of its beauty and the warm, inviting feeling it can add to homes. However, this option is prone to rot, swelling, cracking and buckling. It requires extensive maintenance as well.
Fortunately, you can now choose fiber cement for your home’s exterior. Keep on reading to discover products that are not only appealing, low maintenance, and long-lasting, but also made for your climate.
Siding Made for Your Climate
James Hardie® is a leading manufacturer of fiber cement siding. This material has the appearance of wood but doesn’t require as much care. It’s also more impervious to moisture, pests, and thermal cycling.
You want a siding material that can perform well in your climate and withstand the weather events your area usually experiences. James Hardie understands this, so the company tests its products to better resist extreme situations, such as hurricanes, snowstorms, UV rays, and more. The changing seasons can also put a strain on different siding materials. For instance, vinyl may crack under extremely cold conditions while wood can expand and contract with heightened humidity levels.
The industry leader is the only manufacturer offering products Engineered for Climate®. It established the HardieZone® system, to make sure you have the right product for your region. The system has two categories, namely HZ5® and HZ10®. HZ5 products resist wet freezing conditions while HZ10 products offer superior resistance to heat, humidity, and direct sunlight.
