Nothing can ever beat the simple beauty of the classic clapboard look. The careful, even, and symmetrical lines of wood draw your eyes to the structure of traditional homes that sport them. It’s a timeless design that continues to evoke nostalgia to this day. Unfortunately, in its original composition, clapboards were very vulnerable to time and the elements. For those who enjoy this particularly classic design, Twin Cities Siding Professionals recommends HardiePlank® lap siding. Here’s why:
It gets the look right.
This Twin Cities siding gets the clapboard look right down to a tee. Available in a wide range of textures and designs, HardiePlank can perfectly mimic clapboard siding in historic and classic homes. Yet its versatility shines in its ability to also stand in for cedar siding in houses that are more contemporary in design.
It’s far more durable.
While capturing the beautiful look of classic clapboard, HardiePlank remains the far more durable alternative. That’s because James Hardie® has engineered all its products with HardieZone®. This system reduces the absorption rate of water for each plank, fortifies the surface for painting, increases the resistance to freezing, and also features a drip edge that speeds up water shedding—all giving you lap siding that goes the distance and lasts longer.
James Hardie is so confident in the quality of their products that they’ve backed them with a 30-year warranty. This is both non-prorated and also transferable, meaning that your siding is covered for a really long time. This is a perfect option for any homeowner who wants peace of mind and to enjoy that great new look for years to come.
