Quality siding is essential to protecting your home all year long. When you need more than what wood-based siding products have to offer, DryTech Roofing recommends you invest in James Hardie®. We discuss why James Hardie siding is the superior choice over engineered wood siding.
The Problems of Engineered Wood Siding
Engineered wood siding is made from wood fibers that make it inherently vulnerable to the same weaknesses of most wood-based products. For instance, constant exposure to rainwater can cause paint to blister and peel and absorb more moisture eventually. This would then lead to swollen, warped, or unstable siding.
Engineered wood siding is also vulnerable to open flame and pests. While there are wood treatments available that provide some level of protection against these vulnerabilities, these wear off over the years. You would either have to be diligent in repainting or recoating your wood siding.
Why Choose James Hardie?
