Siding replacement is a considerable investment. Next to your asphalt or metal roofing system, siding is the biggest part of your home viewable from the curb, so it will either contribute to your home’s appeal or take away from it.
There are different types of siding material. Wood, aluminum, vinyl, and fiber cement are the most popular. They vary in price, looks, longevity, and performance. These materials also have different levels of maintenance needs. Wood, for example, gives your home that rustic appeal, but it’s also high-maintenance and doesn’t last long. If you want the best material for your siding, ask your contractor about fiber cement.
Why Fiber Cement?
Fiber cement siding is a long-lasting, low-maintenance material that resists fire, storm, and insect damage. It also looks great, so it does add value to the home. It doesn’t have the weaknesses of wood, vinyl, or aluminum, and it’s great if you’re looking for better insulation from your siding.
James Hardie® is often touted as the best producer of fiber cement siding. All James Hardie siding choices are primed for painting on the field, but if you really want low-maintenance and beautiful products, talk to your siding contractor about prefinished siding.
Why Prefinished Siding?
James Hardie produces prefinished siding with its exclusive ColorPlus® Technology. This proprietary finish is several levels above ordinary painting. It is applied in a controlled factory setting so no debris gets in the way of the color’s adhesion.
To ensure a stronger bond, every coat is cured before another coat is applied. This makes Hardie’s fiber cement siding colors extremely tough against peeling, cracking, and chipping. You don’t have to scrape, prime, and paint your siding every several years. This means you save time, energy, and money.
To sum up, here are the biggest reasons to choose James Hardie prefinished siding:
- Virtually Unlimited Color Options. No more wasting time mixing paints to come up with the one you want. James Hardie’s prefinished boards are available in any color you want.
- Time-Saving. With traditional, unfinished siding, you have to wait for the siding to be installed and then painted. If debris lands on freshly painted siding, it can damage the paint. Then you have to repaint your siding after several years.
- Highly Durable. Your prefinished James Hardie fiber cement siding will not chip, crack, or peel.
