Only James Hardie fiber cement products are Engineered for Climate® to stand up to the demands of the specific climate where they're installed. In the northern U.S. and Canada, HZ5® products resist shrinking, swelling and cracking even after years of wet or freezing conditions. HZ10® products help protect homes in the south from hot, humid conditions, blistering sun and more. Homeowners can enjoy peace of mind knowing their siding and trim will resist elements like wind, temperature change, pests and fire, which could otherwise damage vinyl, wood or wood-based siding.
"Century Communities shares our passion and dedication for delivering exceptional service and beautiful design with long-term value to homeowners," said Zean Nielsen, executive vice president, sales, at James Hardie Building Products. "We're extremely proud to be partnering with a homebuilder that believes in the importance of providing a lasting, high-quality and low maintenance product that not just meets, but exceeds the expectations of customers."
Homeowners can choose from a variety of low-maintenance James Hardie products including HardiePlank® lap siding, HardiePanel® vertical siding, HardieShingle® siding, HardieSoffit® panels, HardieTrim® boards and HardieBacker® cement board – the No. 1 selling brand of backer board.
