Return on investment is one of the main factors to think about when choosing which home improvements to invest in. Fiber cement siding is a particularly good investment, thanks to its many features that result in a significant return. Take a look at what you can get from choosing James Hardie® fiber cement siding.
Return on Investment
According to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report, fiber cement siding is consistently listed as one of the remodeling projects with high ROI, at one point reaching as much as 84.3%. Most of its benefits are derived from its exceptional lifespan and durability – the longer it stays, the greater the return.
An immediate benefit is its ability to significantly enhance your home’s curb appeal. Even if you’re not planning to or selling your home, just knowing that you have a home with an increased value is reason enough to invest in fiber cement siding.
James Hardie fiber cement siding distinguishes itself from other siding materials with its exceptional durability. The HardieZone® system lets James Hardie manufacture a product tailored to the climate of the area it’s sold in. Imagine having an exterior that can withstand the effects of extreme cold, such as cracking, expansion and contraction, to which vinyl siding would have succumbed. Combined with James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology, forget about scraping, re-painting or replacing your siding for a long time, which means even more savings.
Fiber cement siding also insulates better than traditional wood or vinyl siding. It can bolster your exterior wall insulation, which, when combined with well-insulated doors, windows and attic space, can help minimize heat loss during winter. This can curtail your indoor heating requirements and, by extension, energy consumption. Combined with its long lifespan, expect a significant return on your investment with savings alone over time.
