Quality Protection with HardiePlank® Siding

ASW Choose the Right Siding Installation Contractor-190x190We all know that Texas is a HUGE state!  Located in the southern US, Texas is large enough that residents throughout the state experience a variety of weather extremes.  Whether you live on the coast and are subjected to hurricanes, live in the interior where you deal with high temperatures, or live anywhere in between, there is no denying that the outside of your house can take a beating.  HardiePlank® Siding is designed to handle all types of harsh weather conditions.

Quality Pays

Most homeowners know that the cheapest product or material is not often the best choice to use.  When you cover your house with aluminum, wood, or vinyl sidings, the costs may seem reasonable overall.  However, over the life of the product, you will probably end up spending more in maintenance costs and you will probably need to replace it sooner than you expected.

Wood siding is made from plywood, and quite simply, it just does not hold up against the harsh elements of weather.  The wood quickly begins to deteriorate, splitting and inviting in insects that will damage the siding.  While the wood siding is attacked by both weather and insects, the product begins to rot.  There is nothing that can be done to reverse that kind of damage.

Vinyl siding is prone to cracking and blowing off the house during storm driven winds.  Aluminum siding dents and can also be ripped off in the high winds of a hurricane or a twister.  Neither takes paint well, thus making it difficult to alter the color, when you are in the mood to make a change.

HardiePlank® Siding is made of cement fiber, and it is durable, resistant to the elements, and easy to paint.  It can be made to mimic just about any other siding material, including wood lap boards, cedar shingles, and wood shake siding.  In addition, the ColorPlus® Technology offers a full palette that makes color options seem limitless.  Thanks to the ColorPlus® Technology, the final paint result is a durable, low-maintenance finish that lasts close to two times longer, has 30% better fade resistance, and adheres better than any other siding paint available.

Taking care of your HardiePlank® Siding is easy.  If it gets dirty, just get out your power washer and wash it clean!  Since the paint finish lasts much longer with HardiePlank® Siding, the number of times you will need to paint it will be minimal.  That will certainly save you a chunk of change over the course of time.

Most HardiePlank® Siding comes with a minimum 30-year guarantee.  This cement fiber siding resists the warping, cracking, buckling and swelling that can be caused by hot and humid weather conditions in Texas.  It can even handle the corrosive environment of salt spray on homes near the Gulf.

Finding a Contractor

While not significantly different than installing other, cheaper versions of exterior siding, the installation of HardiePlank® Siding requires additional training and expertise.  When looking for an experienced contractor, make sure to ask the following questions:

  • What kind of training do your installers receive?

  • Will construction managers be on site for your project?

  • Will your crew keep me posted regarding their progress?

  • How long have you been in the business?

  • Do you have all the necessary permits and licenses?

  • Does your company carry liability insurance and worker compensation?
  • How many projects like this one have you completed in the last year? Ask for several current references and be sure to contact those references.
