  • Weather

    All of our siding products are Engineered for Climate®, meaning we've formulated a unique product for wet, freezing climates and another for hot, humid climates. So while OSB siding may experience swelling and edge checking in response to changes in climatic conditions, James Hardie® siding stands up to storms, hail, wind and extreme temperatures, reducing time and money spent on maintenance.

  • Water

    James Hardie siding is Engineered for Climate® to resist damage from water including issues like mold, swelling and cracking, protecting your customer's home and reducing the need for costly upkeep or repair. On the other hand, OSB siding is susceptible to swelling and expansion caused by water absorption.

  • Fire

    James Hardie fiber cement siding is fire-resistant, which is why it's endorsed by firefighters nationwide*. OSB siding will eventually turn to ash when met with a flame. Vinyl siding actually melts from the sun reflecting off of new, Low-E windows. Not surprisingly, it also melts when near fire. By choosing James Hardie siding, you'll be confident that you're protecting your customer's biggest asset.

  • Pests

    The animals that make nature wonderful can be a torment on homes. Some types of siding fall prey to Mother Nature's creatures. Because it’s wood, cedar siding can be pecked by birds and devoured by insects. But James Hardie fiber cement siding offers little appeal to critters and won't be eaten by termites, giving homeowners unmatched peace of mind and protection.
