As exterior remodeling experts, we install all types of siding including wood, aluminum, vinyl, and fiber-cement. There are many materials and brands available for cladding your home, and we know choosing the right one can be confusing.
That’s why we go through all of the options with you, so you can decide on the best material for your home and budget. No matter what type of siding you choose, we’ll install it to the strictest manufacturer specifications.
"I showed my wife the samples ... she fell in love with it. AND the great thing is you don't have to paint the damn stuff, it's done! I don't have to put on a wood preservative or paint it. I don't have to touch this stuff for 15 years. I am done!
... And the estimate I got on painting was $4,200! So that's $4,200 I didn't have to spend. That's a major thing. ... It was almost like a no brainer."
Sometimes our customers ask which product we’d personally choose for our own homes. The product we recommend most is James Hardie fiber-cement siding, and here’s why...
First of all, when you see it... it just looks “diamond.” People love it, and it doesn’t matter if we install it on a trailer. It always gets that same “wow!” first reaction from our customers, and that’s great... but then when you look at all the benefits, it’s hard to say no to Hardie... play the video and discover why.
Hardie Siding comes in 3 styles you can choose from to suit your home:
HardiePlank® lap siding is the most popular choice among our customers, and is great for most homes.
HardieShingle® siding has the same warm, authentic look as cedar shingles, without the splitting, rotting or cracking that you get with cedar. This is a great choice for more traditional homes.
HardiePanel® vertical siding can be combined with HardieTrim boards to achieve a distinctive board-and-batten look.
Everyone loves the warm look of traditional wood siding, but the downside is it’s vulnerable to all kinds of pests and weather conditions, and needs to be painted every 3-7 years.
HardiePlank® with ColorPlus® Technology has a fade-resistant, multi-coat, baked on finish with a 15 year warranty, guaranteed not fade or chip.
That means you’ll save yourself the hassle of painting your house at least 2 to 3 times over 15 years. That will easily save you about $10,000.
But if you want to paint and change the color, Hardie siding takes paint beautifully. All you need to do is clean the surface and paint over it. No getting up on a ladder and scraping off old paint!
No building material can make your home fireproof, but a non-combustible home exterior like Hardie siding can limit the damage to your home in case of fire.
Even if your neighbor’s house catches fire, your home will stand a better chance with fiber-cement than with any other siding material. It is very common for fire to melt the vinyl siding right off of adjacent homes. If you have wood shingles, the wood will actually fuel the flame.
Vinyl siding has been known to warp from just having a barbecue grill placed too close to the side of the house.
Hardie siding will not ignite when exposed to direct flame or contribute fuel to a fire. Your insurance company may even offer a discount on your homeowner’s insurance if you protect your home with Hardie siding.
Vinyl siding is mostly decorative and is attached loosely to the side of the house. Moisture can seep behind the siding, which can lead to mold, rot and a lot of high-cost damage down the road.
But Hardie siding is securely affixed to your home, and it’s water-resistant, so it creates a barrier against moisture.
The cement content makes it impervious to termites and other pests, who are unable to chew through the siding.
Because it’s 5 times thicker than vinyl, Hardie siding can withstand impact from hail, tree limbs, and winds up to 150 miles per hour.
Fiber-cement siding has been specified by hurricane-zone building codes for building homes in hurricane-, tornado-, and wildfire-prone areas.
Also, Hardie siding won’t warp and shrink from heat and cold, so your home exterior will keep looking new for years to come.
That means you can rest assured—storm after storm, season after season—knowing that the weather outside will not affect your siding.
James Hardie siding is made from just four sustainable ingredients that are low in toxicity: wood pulp, cement, sand and water (recycled up to 4 times).
Longer lasting products also require fewer resources for replacement and maintenance. Hardie Siding is approved for use in LEED® rated buildings.
