Your siding has a huge impact on your home’s curb appeal and ability to withstand the climate. Our recommended option that combines the benefits of aesthetic charm and long-term weather protection is HardiePlank® siding complete with HardieTrim®.
Today, your James Hardie Siding expert, S.I.S. Exterior Renovations, shares the advantages of Hardie Plank siding and what makes it stand out when compared to other siding products.
What Is HardiePlank Siding?
Hardie Plank is made of portland cement, sand, and cellulose fibre, thus categorized as fibre cement siding. Hardie Plank siding is one of the best fibre cement siding products on the market. It’s highly customizable as it comes in 20 “Statement Collection” colors, as well as over 700 “Dream Collection” colours created using James Hardie’s ColorPlus® technology for excellent UV resistance. Hardie siding comes in panel, shake, varying widths of lap siding and trim, making it extremely versatile.
When you look at life-cycle costs, Hardie Plank exterior siding is much more cost-effective than wood or vinyl since it requires minimal maintenance, for example, a wrap of Hardie siding is justified over painting your wood siding in 10 years or 3 paint cycles. Also because of the product integrity and Colorplus finish it maintains it’s beauty for many years later and enhances resale value as opposed to a vinyl or wood siding.
Compared to other popular siding options, Hardie Plank stands out for its excellent durability since it’s five times thicker than vinyl siding. It is also extremely resistant to dents, cracks, and fading and takes time before it shows any signs of weathering thanks to the ColorPlus® technology within the finish.
Just remember the product is only as good as the install, as an “Elite Preferred” installer S.I.S. guarantees a showcase install years to come.
