You’ve heard it a million times: Your home is the biggest investment you’ll make in your life. But how do make sure you get the best return on investment for your home? For years now, the answer has been to use fiber cement siding like the kind that’s offered by James Hardie siding. James Hardie consistently tops Remodeling Magazine’s annual survey comparing cost versus value on home improvement projects.
Your Home Investment Pays Dividends with James Hardie Siding
James Hardie can save you money and protect your home in a number of ways. Re-siding your home with a fiber cement exterior is more cost effective than other types of home improvement projects. It gives you an eleven percent higher return than vinyl window replacement, a 24 percent higher return than a kitchen remodeling job or roof replacement and a 25 percent better return than what you’d get by adding a new bathroom.
James Hardie Siding Will Save You Money and Last Longer
James Hardie is also a superior choice than other types of siding. Wood siding can burn and vinyl siding can melt in the hot weather. James Hardie siding is fire-resistant and pest-resistant. Both of these features can save you costs down the road. Because James Hardie siding is approved for fire-resistant construction by some IAS certified laboratories, insurance companies are known to give homeowners a discount on their premiums. The siding is also pest-resistant and keeps termites and carpenter ants from damaging your home.
Installing James Hardie siding means you’ll be using a product that will last a long time. It’s built to last around 30 years or more and it comes with a 30-year warranty. It’s also made from fiber and cement, which is thicker than other types of siding. This allows it to fight off damage caused by rain, sun, wind and severe storms. It’s also less likely to warp, sag or crack. The siding also protects your home from mold and rot. All of this is good news for your finances because it increases your home’s resale value.
