How Winter Weather Can Affect Your Home
Winter can attack your home in many ways. First and most obviously, it can blow cold air into your home. While it’s important to have insulation in your home and Good Guys Contracting can certainly help install insulation, your siding also serves as a barrier to the cold.
Another way that winter can affect your home is through ice and snow. These elements can create moisture and if that moisture gets into your home, you can have serious problems related to mold and mildew.
James Hardie vs. Winter Weather
There are many ways that James Hardie Siding can fight what winter throws at us. Because it’s a fiber cement siding, it won’t absorb moisture in the wintertime. In fact, it will hold up to all types if weather all year round.
That’s because James Hardie Siding is engineered to be durable. They studied the long-term affects that weather has had on siding in different areas of the country. The result was the creation of the HardieZone system. The study found common traits in different areas of the country and divided the country into zones. The New York area is in HZ5. Siding in this region is designed to resist damage from ice, snow and cold. It’s engineered to have superior paint adhesion. HZ5 is also made to resist moisture damage.
With the risk of fire increased in winter months according to the National Fire Protection Association, you‘ll rest easier knowing that Hardie siding is also non-combustible and is more resistant to fire damage. The effect of extreme heat in the summer followed by extreme cold in the winter can cause warping, while Hardieboard will stay durable for years to come. Fiber cement siding won’t warp like vinyl siding does.
