The James Hardie® HardieZone™ System and its Benefits

What Is the HardieZone™ System?

James Hardie provides products with specific performance attributes that perform better depending on the climate where they are being used. They designed their products using the HardieZone™ system. Different regions of the country experience different weather challenges, so these different regions need different kinds of siding. This HardieZone system uses eight climatic variables: hurricanes, snow, hail, temperature range, topographical factors, UV, humidity and rainfall.

Using these variables, James Hardie divided the country into distinct climate regions. They then engineered the HZ5® and HZ10® siding to meet different homeowner needs. For instance, the HZ10 siding works best for regions that experience heat, rain, humidity and long-term sun exposure. HZ5 siding, on the other hand, excels in regions that deal with extreme snow, cold, and ice and large temperature swings. As one of the top siding and roofing companies in our area, we recommend using HZ5 siding for your home.

Features of HZ5 Siding

HZ5 siding has superior paint adhesion and moisture resistance when compared with ordinary siding. It also has a drip edge to provide it with superior water management. James Hardie designed this siding to resist damage from freezing temperatures, ice and snow. It can also maintain its dimensional stability under challenging weather conditions. You can rely on this siding to protect your home no matter how cold the weather becomes.
