LIFETIME VALUE

You want to ensure you’re buying the best possible product when you choose to re-side. James Hardie invented fiber cement and remains the leader in the field. Here’s what you’ll get when you invest in James Hardie siding and trim.
#1 Return on Investment
Re-siding with fiber cement yields the best ROI when compared to other mid-size remodeling projects.
cost savings
Fiber cement costs less than wood, doesn’t attract pests, and resists water absorption to help protect against mold, swelling and cracking—buying you more mileage for your dollar.
Climate Specificity
James Hardie is the only siding company that engineers siding and trim products for specific climates, ensuring that you get the best performance for your region.
Color That Lasts
Baked-on ColorPlus® Technology has greater resistance to fading, chipping and cracking, meaning less maintenance for you.
lower insurance
Since fiber cement siding (unlike vinyl) is non-combustible and hail-damage resistant, it can sometimes help reduce home insurance premiums. Ask your agent.
Great Warranties
All James Hardie siding and trim products come with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty.
