Since 2013, James Hardie® has been proud bearer of the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for their HardiePlank Lap Siding. Being the most popular brand of siding in America, the Good Housekeeping Seal is a testament to their dedication to quality siding.
But what does this seal mean to you, the homeowner? As the premier James Hardie siding installation contractor in the Twin Cities area, let Twin Cities Siding Professionals share with you the importance of this coveted designation.
The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval
A product is first submitted to the Good Housekeeping institute for evaluation, which covers its effectiveness, as well as its packaging and marketing claims. Once approved for the classic seal, the company can then apply for the Green Good Housekeeping Seal, which will subject the product for further review based on a wide range of environmental criteria. This includes ingredients, material, composition, energy, water, and waste reduction during manufacturing, packaging, and distribution.
Each step will require substantiation and documentation from the manufacturer, who must then score at least 65 out of a 100-point scale. HardiePlank lap siding passed all criteria, and have since been awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal in 2013.
How It Benefits Homeowners
Consumers regard the Good Housekeeping Seal as an indicator that a particular product is a “good product”. You may not know this, but the Good Housekeeping Seal is an emblem of Good Housekeeping’s Consumers Policy, which offers a limited warranty that covers a refund, repair, or replacement if the product bearing the seal is found to be defective within two years of purchase.
Not only that, it is also your assurance that when you choose HardiePlank Lap Siding, you’re choosing one of the most reliable siding products anywhere. Combined with James Hardie’s own rigorous set of standards and proven track record of siding innovations, you know your home will be in good hands.
