Re-side Your Home / Cost vs. Value


Cost vs. Value #1 ROI Award
For the 8th year in a row, Remodeling magazine's Cost vs. Value Report states that re-siding your home with fiber-cement siding in the mid-range or larger categories provides the #1 return on your remodeling investment. Now that's really inspiring.

Re-Side with James Hardie® Fiber Cement Siding - The Best Choice.

The Pros Know

There are many other projects you can tackle, but only re-siding with fiber cement gives you the best return on your investment 8 years in a row according to the Remodeling 2012-13 Cost vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com).

  • Residing with fiber cement gives a 25% better return than adding a bathroom and costs $61k less to complete
  • Roof replacement remodel gives you a 23% less return on investment than re-siding with fiber cement
  • Replacing your windows nets you 7% less return on investment than fiber cement re-siding

Remodeling magazine is the industry's leading home improvement magazine. Since 1988, Remodeling magazine's Cost vs. Value Report has compared construction costs for common remodeling projects with the value they add to a home at resale in the current real estate market. The results - upscale siding projects using fiber-cement return the highest value at resale.
