Why Homeowners Love James Hardie® Siding

James Hardie® is the leading name in the siding industry, having developed and sold the first fiber cement siding products. James Hardie siding has since received praise and awards from various organizations in the industry, but the most important is the feedback received from homeowners.

As a certified James Hardie contractor, here’s a look at the aspects that homeowners love about James Hardie siding.


One of the best aspects of James Hardie siding is its durability. Being made from fiber cement has its advantages: moisture and rot resistance, increased structural strength, and extended lifespan. Homeowners certainly agree; James Hardie has even received feedback from homeowners commenting on how their siding has withstood hurricanes without damage. One homeowner even claimed their home survived a hail storm with hailstones as big as softballs without a single ding, crack or chip.


More homeowners are factoring sustainability into their home improvements from their choice of roofing materials to replacement windows. More than a few of them appreciate the fact that James Hardie plank siding isn’t made from endangered materials and has low toxicity levels. Fiber cement also has its distinct advantages, such as significantly longer lifespans, low maintenance requirements and better durability. For homeowners who are after a LEED certification or simply want a more environmentally friendly home, James Hardie siding is ideal.


James Hardie siding is available in several textures, widths and colors that fit the most demanding design requirements. Homeowners certainly appreciate having such a wide selection of colors, especially those living in historic homes with specific color requirements. The great thing about fiber cement is that it allows deeper relief, perfect for wood grain that you feel as well as see. James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology is factory-applied and cured, with special coatings that resist fading. Combined with its low upkeep, you can have a more vibrant exterior without worrying about scraping and repainting.
