What Type of Home Siding Should You Install?

Replacing the siding on your home can dramatically improve its appearance, increase its value and enhance your home’s protection from the elements and pests. To get the most benefits from new siding, you need to make sure you choose the right type for your home.

With our more than 25 years of experience in the field, our team here at Allied Windows & Siding has seen it all when it comes to siding. We have chosen James Hardie Hardie Plank Siding as our preferred product for projects due to the many benefits that it provides.

Some of the benefits of James Hardie HardiePlank Siding include:

  1. Fire Prevention

In the event of a fire, the right siding can greatly reduce damage done to the outer structure of a home. James Hardie HardiePlank Siding has been recognized as a fire prevention product. It is non-combustible and an excellent choice in areas prone to wildfires or in areas where houses are close together, increasing the danger of house fires.

  1. Pest Resistance

Unlike wood siding, James Hardie siding is resistant to the effects of wood-eating and burrowing pests, including carpenter ants and termites.

  1. Weather Resistance

It’s hard to beat the weather resistance of high quality HardiePlank siding. In wet and damp climates, the siding resists rotting, and its long-lasting color resists fading even in areas that are exposed to direct hot summer sunlight in the afternoon. The siding is also impervious to damage due to hail, impacts from debris that may fly during a storm and the effects of salty air along the shoreline. It’s even rated to withstand wind gusts of up to 150 miles per hour.

  1. Less Maintenance

Compared to wood siding, James Hardie HardiePlank Lap Siding is much simpler to maintain. The paint can last for up to 10 years, which is 3 to 4 times longer than what’s common with wood siding.

  1. Appearance

James Hardie siding is available in shades to suit every taste with ColorPlus® Technology. This state-of-the -art technology is the product of years of research and testing and allows James Hardie to provide a wider range of color options with something to suit every taste.

  1. Guarantee

With James Hardie, you get the benefit of an incredible guarantee. A non-prorated, transferable limited warranty protects your investment, and the ColorPlus Technology carries a 30-year warranty. The siding has already been used with success on millions of homes across the United States.

  1. Price
