At Good Guys, we know our customers are in good hands when they install James Hardie Siding on their homes. We are a James Hardie preferred contractor and we know that installing Hardie products on your home means you’ll have strong, durable siding for years to come. So we want to tell why James Hardie Siding is known for its durability and its long lasting performance and why you should strongly consider James Hardie siding for your home.
James Hardie Stands Up to All Weather
If you’re installing siding on Long Island or Brooklyn, you know that Mother Nature can give you plenty to worry about. We get our share of snow here, plenty of rain, and we know all too well that we can be affected by a hurricane. James Hardie Siding is built to stand up to all types of weather. In fact, it’s engineered that way. James Hardie has done research into the effects of climate on their siding and have come up with a system to handle different climates.
That system is called HardieZone® and it’s designed to stand up to wet, cold conditions in northern climates while handling heat, humidity and sun damage in warmer climates.
Wood Siding is Susceptible to Water and Fire Damage
Water damage is a particular concern when you’re making a decision to install siding. Over time, wood siding or wood-composite siding can be very susceptible to water damage. Wood siding can crack or buckle and over time, mold can grow. James Hardie will stand up against rot and mold.
Another benefit to Hardie siding is that it can stand up to pests. Wood siding can be devoured by termites and other insects. Hardie siding won’t be eaten by termites and also won’t attract other creatures like birds that can peck away at wooden siding. You won’t have the cost of paying for replacement to rotting or damaged wood siding.
One of the great strengths of James Hardie Siding is its fire resistance. Wood siding can easily catch fire, while vinyl siding can easily melt when exposed to fire or intense heat. But James Hardie Siding is non-combustible. This can help you save money in other ways. Many fire insurance companies offer discounts to customers who have James Hardie siding, because it will not ignite when exposed to direct flame. Hardie siding also won’t contribute fuel to a fire. So let your insurer know that you have James Hardie Siding.
