James Hardie Siding™ in Lake Forest

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id="68" gal_title="James Hardie Siding"]

Whether you want to update your Lake Forest home to suit your own personal style or increase its overall resale value, Custom Installations offers James Hardie siding in a variety of types and styles. The James Hardie company has more than 5.5 million satisfied customers around the world and some 126 years in developing some of the world’s finest fiber cement siding products.

More Durable than Other Materials
There are James Hardie siding collections that will suit any home in the Lake Forest area, regardless of its location or architectural style. For instance, the Artisan® luxury collection offers up stunning bold colors and unique textures designed to completely transform the way your home looks. The HardieShingle® siding mimics cedar shingles with all of the same color and texture, but because it is made of fiber cement, it will last for decades with very minimal maintenance. For most homes, HardiePlank® siding is the most popular collection. It comes in many different colors to complement your style and classic textures that provide curb appeal.

Dedication to Quality
The James Hardie team has been creating siding for more than a century, and in that amount of time, they have learned to thoroughly research and test their materials prior to production. Because of this, Lake Forest homeowners can rest assured that their siding is of the highest quality. It has received a Good Housekeeping Seal, which is no easy reward to receive, and James Hardie is so confident in the quality of its siding that it offers all of its customers a 15-year non-prorated warranty to ease their minds and allow them to feel confident in their purchases.

More Durable than Other Materials
Fiber cement siding is gaining popularity over materials like wood and vinyl in the Lake Forest area, and the reasons are obvious. Wood cracks and splits when exposed to changing weather conditions, and once the damage begins, it is difficult to stop. Vinyl is certainly more durable than wood, but even so, long-term exposure to the sun and heat starts to break down the chemical bonds, leaving the vinyl prone to cracking and warping. Fiber cement will not crack, split, or warp over time; it is designed to maintain its shape with very little maintenance for decades to come.

Long-Lasting Color with Very Low Maintenance
In order to keep your wood siding looking like new, you must repaint it regularly. This repainting requires removal of the old paint, sanding, one or more coats of new paint, and a sealant to protect from the elements. Vinyl is a bit simpler in that it only requires a cleaning here and there, but over the years – and especially on the side of the home that is exposed to the most intense sunlight – the color can and will fade. The color is baked onto James Hardie fiber cement siding, and it is designed to last for years with nothing more than an infrequent cleaning with your everyday garden hose.

If you are interested in new siding for your Lake Forest home, contact us here at Custom Installations, where we carry a variety of styles, colors, and textures of James Hardie fiber cement siding. It’s certainly a wise investment, and it will leave your home looking beautiful and blemish-free for years to come.
