No fiber cement siding product is more popular than James Hardie®’s HardiePlank® lap siding. If you ask us, here are the biggest advantages of investing in this James Hardie siding solution:
Decay, Pest and Fire Resistance
Unlike wooden products, the HardiePlank lap siding is moisture-resistant, impervious to insects and non-combustible. Virtually as strong as brick, it can withstand severe weather and hold its own against hail and snow. It ages gracefully and maintains its good condition while requiring minimal upkeep.
Authentic Wood-Like Appearance
This James Hardie fiber cement siding product is indistinguishable from genuine cedar exterior cladding panels. It can feature soft wood grain textures, mimicking the way real wood looks and feels. Since it’s insusceptible to wet and freezing conditions, it’s like having cedar siding that never grows old.
Although the HardiePlank lap siding can be primed and ready for field painting, it also comes in striking, baked-on ColorPlus Technology finishes. James Hardie uses 50% more layers of coating than the average painter. Applied with attention to detail, it leaves no spot uncovered. And because the finish is cured in between coats in a controlled environment, it has a strong bond that resists peeling, chipping and cracking. ColorPlus Technology finishes are available in a bevy of colors and are not prone to fading, allowing them to stay vibrant for a long period.
Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval
The James Hardie plank siding is the only siding product to receive the prestigious GH Seal of Approval. It’s protected by the GH Limited Warranty, providing you extra insurance against defects in addition to the guarantees that already come with it.
