Here are five reasons why over eight million homeowners have chosen James Hardie fiber cement siding…

James Hardie customizes their siding for different regions based on several climate variables. 

For the Missouri climate, James Hardie offers the HZ5 product line. The HZ5 line is engineered for freezing weather and extreme seasonal temperature changes. Unlike the siding Hardie manufactures for hot climates, HZ5 Hardie siding comes with special paint-adhesion, moisture-resistance technology, and a drip edge for optimal water management. 

As a result, you get peace of mind that your siding is built specifically to handle our area’s weather. The good. The bad. And the nasty.

One of the best features of James Hardie fiber cement siding is that it can be made to replicate other materials, including wood and shingles, allowing for a unique look for your home. 

James Hardie siding can also be upgraded with ColorPlus® Technology. When you choose this option, Hardie applies their special proprietary finish to your siding in their factory. ColorPlus Technology lasts longer than ordinary paint and resists fading, chipping, peeling, and cracking. It’s also backed by a 15-year limited warranty that covers both the paint and labor.

James Hardie fiber cement siding has the same life expectancy as BRICK, withstands winds up to 140 miles per hour, and requires little to no maintenance. James Hardie siding also resists rotting, warping, and damage from the most ruthless climates and precipitation. 

Hardie siding is also a “Class A” fire retardant. While wood fuels fires and vinyl melts when exposed to flames, fiber cement is noncombustible. This helps fireproof your home and provides you with protection you can’t get with any other siding material.

Magazine Remodeling’s “Cost vs. Value” Report has ranked fiber cement siding the “#1 return on your remodeling investment” for 10 consecutive years. This not only makes James Hardie fiber cement a better investment than vinyl and wood siding, but also greater than other popular projects like kitchen remodeling, additions, and bathroom renovations.

James Hardie fiber cement siding comes with a 30-year non-prorated labor and material warranty. When you choose Hardie’s proprietary ColorPlus® technology, there is a 15-year finish warranty against peeling, chipping, blistering, flaking, and cracking. This is on top of Good Housekeeping’s Seal Of Approval and our own Lifetime Workmanship Warranty.

Bottom line: Your investment is protected from all possible angles.
