Since 2013, Hardie® Plank lap siding has been backed by the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute.  For over a century, the Good Housekeeping Seal has been a symbol for reliability that consumers trust when making big decisions, like choosing home siding.

The seal is a sought-after mark of quality and is granted only after a product’s rigorous evaluation.  The engineers from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute evaluated Hardie® Plank lap siding for fade, weather, water, fire resistance and more using state of the art equipment.  Since James Hardie has its own rigorous testing process, this recognition comes as a particular point of pride and we’re determined to live up to that honor every day.
We know our products pass muster, but it’s always gratifying to get that third party approval. After all, we can tell you how good we are, but that’s not how an excellent reputation is built.
Hardie® siding and trim products are engineered to withstand the specific climate in which they are used. Feel confident knowing that you chose a product designed for beauty and durability.
