Below are just a few of the many reasons why we recommend James Hardie siding products for our Naperville area customers:
James Hardie Siding products protect your home from some of its most common enemies: fire and hurricanes.
No building material can guarantee a fireproof home, but there are some preventative measures that a homeowner can take to better prepare for fires— like installing a non-combustible home exterior.
The property damage from hurricanes can be staggering. Due to its impact resistance against hail and windblown debris, fiber-cement siding has been specified by hurricane-zone building codes for building homes in hurricane-, tornado-, and wildfire-prone areas.
James Hardie fiber cement siding is designed to last for up to 30 years against cracking, rotting, hail damage, termites and many other possible problems.
No one has control over the weather. So it’s best to choose siding that resists severe climates and damage from precipitation, like James Hardie fiber-cement siding. James Hardie Siding is warranted not to rot, warp or delaminate. In addition, James Hardie Siding is five times thicker than vinyl siding so it’s warranted against hail damage and can be installed to withstand winds up to 150 MPH. That means you can rest assured—storm after storm, season after season—knowing that the weather outside is not affecting your siding.
Since James Hardie Siding is made of fiber cement, it does not undergo the same degree of expansion and contraction that hinders wood-based and vinyl sidings. Therefore, James Hardie Siding will hold onto paint three to four times longer than wood siding, reducing your overall maintenance costs, without compromising aesthetics.
James Hardie® products are rare in that they combine beauty and durability and also are considered “Green and Sustainable” by industry professionals.
