When it comes to curb appeal and durability, James Hardie® fiber cement siding always beats the competition with beautiful design and high performance. It is also Engineered for Climate®, meaning it stands up to whatever Mother Nature throws at it. When you choose James Hardie, you can be confident that your family stays safe and dry against inclement weather conditions. So, how does it hold up against other siding materials?
Wood siding’s natural beauty enhances the look of any home exterior, but it has its downsides, particularly its propensity to split and crack and deteriorate over time. James Hardie siding products, meanwhile, can resist weather damage and keep their shape. Both the brand’s siding and trim are highly resistant to mold and moisture damage as well. When there’s a fire, our products are much better at withstanding damage compared to the normal wood siding which typically goes up in flames. Our products also provide more protection than wood from wet and freezing conditions and hot, humid weather.
Engineered Wood Siding
Engineered wood may look more durable than normal wood, but don’t let it fool you. Constant exposure to moisture can eventually cause engineered wood siding to expand, which then leads to unsightly gaps. Some engineered wood siding warranties also don’t cover swelling and edge checking, which can lead to a costly siding repair.
Vinyl may have several benefits worth considering, but there are much more reasons to choose our James Hardie fiber cement siding products over this siding material. For one, our products are over five times thicker than vinyl, which means you get deeper grooves and a more authentic wood-grain effect. Our products are also non-combustible, unlike vinyl which is known to melt when exposed to fires or even the reflection of the sun off low-emissivity (low-e) glass windows.
