The Most Durable Siding Material
Fiber cement siding is preferred over many of the more traditional siding materials, including wood and vinyl, because it is more durable. While wood expands in heat or high humidity and contracts again in cold, dry conditions, leading to cracks and fissures, fiber cement retains its size and shape regardless of the outdoors conditions. Vinyl does not expand and contract as much as wood, but it can warp and become brittle in extreme heat. Then, once the weather cools off again, the extreme cold can cause cracks. Once again, fiber cement maintains its structural integrity despite the temperature outdoors.
No Loss of Color
People who have wood siding on their homes can testify to the fact that it requires lots of maintenance in order to look like new. Paint will peel and stain will fade quickly, leaving homeowners no choice but to apply a new coat once every couple of years, at the very least. Vinyl will not peel, but it will most certainly fade – especially on areas of the home that are exposed to prolonged sunlight. Fiber cement siding from James Hardie utilizes ColorPlus® technology, which helps to ensure that the siding’s color is the same in 15 years as it is today.
The Highest Quality in Gurnee
Finally, when you decide to spend thousands of dollars to put new siding on your home, it only makes sense to choose a product that is known for its high quality. James Hardie’s siding has won the Good Housekeeping Seal, and the company is so very confident in the quality of their products that it offers all homeowners a 15-year non-prorated warranty for their peace of mind.
