The Top Features of Fiber Cement Siding

James Hardie® is the company that first created fiber cement siding. James Hardie fiber cement siding is a mixture of wood pulp, cement, clay and sand. This type of siding is about as durable as vinyl but looks more authentic. It will last up to 100 years, though the surface may need the occasional repainting during its life span.

Read on as DryTech Roofing LLC discusses what makes fiber cement one of the top siding materials ever made.


James Hardie first produced fiber cement siding and has perfected its manufacturing process. Their proprietary HardieZone® system is the James Hardie way of installing the right siding for a home in a specific climate. Our siding experts use this system to install siding designed for the Maryland climate.

DryTech Roofing LLC installs the kind of protective siding Maryland residents need. It has the strength and durability that withstands the region’s wet, cold winters and hot, humid summers.

Eye-Catching Aesthetics

Like vinyl, James Hardie plank siding mimics bevel wood siding. Known as HardiePlank®, it has both smooth and textured and rough finishes. It has the highest ROI and scores 100% on homeowners’ acceptance and approval.

Beautiful, Durable and Colorful

Fiber cement siding needs no scraping or re-painting. It’s long-lasting and easy to maintain. There’s a wide range of textures to choose from so you can find the exact color that fits your style and your exterior architecture. It holds a Class A fire rating so it won’t spread fire and its color and texture do not warp or fade. Its installation cost is less than for stone, cedar, wood and hardboard siding.

There is no better protection from the dangers of water and impact damage than James Hardie siding. At DryTech Roofing LLC, we’ll share more about James Hardie fiber cement siding when you call us today at (240) 491-5600. We serve communities in Maryland and nearby areas.
