Fire resistance

Hardie® fiber cement siding will not
 ignite when exposed to a direct flame
 —nor contribute fuel to a fire.* In
 contrast, fire feasts on wood and melts
 vinyl almost instantly.

Moisture resistance

Hardie® products are engineered to resist water and humidity—and will stand up to rain, sleet, and snow better than wood-based siding, which will swell and expand more when exposed to moisture.

Weather resistance

Hardie® products are made to withstand worst-case weather: hurricanes, rain storms, strong winds, extreme heat, UV rays, humidity, snow, hail, freezing temperatures, and more.

Pest defense

Hardie® siding holds no appeal for pests and won’t be eaten by termites, while engineered wood and natural wood siding are vulnerable to woodpeckers and other pests.


Color that looks better—and lasts longer—than paint

With our proprietary ColorPlus® Technology finishes, you get more than gorgeous color—you get years of lasting character and fade resistance. Our factory-applied, baked-on color is cured between coats, creating a strong bond that resists peeling, chipping, and cracking for years to come. 

Mother nature meets her match

Only Hardie® products are Engineered for Climate® to ensure you get unmatched protection and performance—no matter where you live. Built to defy even the most extreme weather in your specific area, Hardie® siding stands up to blistering sun, hurricane-force winds, brutal humidity, extreme cold, sheets of snow, and more.
