James Hardie’s HardiePlank fiber-cement lap siding is specifically engineered to withstand damage from moisture, rot, and termites. They will also not ignite when exposed to fire. Thanks to these traits, as well as its impact, and temperature resistance, HardiePlank has become the most popular brand of siding in America. A full spectrum of colors, and natural-looking textures ensures that the HardiePlank line can suit nearly any design requirement. Hardie outperforms wood, vinyl, and OSB siding in nearly any performance metric, HardiePlank siding is also engineered to withstand the specific climate in which it is used. While all HardiePlank siding is available primed, and ready for field painting, James Hardie’s optional ColorPlus® technology offers a range of attractive colors applied in a controlled environment to resist chipping, peeling, cracking, and fading. All James Hardie siding products come with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty, and because of their fire, and impact resistance can even lower insurance premiums.
