Your siding is one of the most visible parts of your home and makes up much of its appeal. In addition, it also does the important job of protecting your interior from the weather and contributing to your home’s overall energy efficiency. To help you choose the right siding for your home, Twin Cities Siding Professionals talks about the five things you will want in your siding.
1. Energy Efficiency
For an energy-efficient home, all building elements must work together, including the siding. The James Hardie® siding we can install for your home can be insulated for increased thermal performance. This siding features an R-value of 3 and helps your home use less energy in the summer and winter. Insulation diminishes outside noise and enhances strength and impact resistance.
One of our main goals as a Minneapolis siding contractor is to increase the curb appeal of our owner’s homes. James Hardie siding features the exclusive ColorPlus® Technology that bakes in the siding’s color, making it resistant to fading, cracking, chipping, or peeling. It also features a color palette designed by expert color consultant, Leslie Harrington. The array of carefully curated color combinations make sure that James Hardie siding will enhance the beauty of any style of home.
3. Weather Resistance
Every siding we offer is also tough. James Hardie’s HardieZone® system was designed to manufacture the perfect siding for our local weather condition. James Hardie extensively researched weather patterns and climates to develop the HZ5 product line for the Twin Cities and the surrounding areas.
This siding has a reduced water absorption rate, a fortified surface, a drip edge for water management, and a special product formulation. It’s engineered to resist freezing temperatures and seasonal temperature variations. As a James Hardie Preferred Remodeler, we are unique among siding contractors in Minneapolis, because we are fully trained and qualified to install their entire range of products.
4. Water Protection
For increased moisture protection, James Hardie products come with the HardieWrap® weather protection barrier. This barrier provides the right balance between breathability and water resistance, allowing water vapor to escape your home, but preventing water intrusion. It’s composed of a high performance material with a unique coating that helps prevent mildew and reduces energy loss.
5. Ease of Installation
You want your siding installation to be done perfectly, and on-schedule. James Hardie products are easy to install for certified contractors; in fact, we have installed James Hardie products on over 1300 homes. As a James Hardie Preferred Remodeler, we can install each of their products flawlessly. Throughout the entire process, we will work diligently without delay or interruption.
