Which siding material is right for my home?
The answer is whichever one fits your home the best! Some like the ease of installation of one product or the look of another. As professionals in residential exteriors we tend to gravitate towards what is going to get the job done and have the least worries for the end consumer. That means that ease of installation should be irrelevant. While there are multiple products that can be installed on a home, we prefer to install James Hardie fiber cement siding.
We prefer it for several reasons.
First, they are the pioneers of fiber cement siding. James Hardie has been around for 30 years and is continually working to upgrade its product to keep up with the demands of the construction industry. It is the only company to have specially formulated product for specific regions. Yes, you read that correctly, the James Hardie fiber cement siding that is installed in South Dakota is different from what is installed in California or Florida. They are the only exterior cladding manufacturer that provides paint to their own product, in house. While others on the market offer pre-finished siding options, James Hardie does it in their own facilities to meet rigorous quality standards and a finish they can stand behind. They provide a full service for their product from manufacturing all the way to where it is installed. No other company provides so many options to make each building look distinctly different.
