4 Benefits of HardiePlank® Siding for Your Home


HardiePlank® is a fiber cement siding product manufactured by James Hardie. It’s made from cellulose fiber and cement composite, and comes in eight-millimeter-thick planks. Below are the unique advantages of HardiePlank siding that make it the best choice for your siding installation.

Cost effectiveness. While vinyl siding typically has a cheaper upfront cost than fiber cement siding, it costs a lot more to maintain its beauty and efficiency over the years. Since vinyl is prone to damage, especially if you live in an area with extreme weather conditions, you’ll need a handsome sum of money to repair vinyl siding compared to HardiePlank, which is virtually maintenance-free.

Better durability. One of the main reasons for the popularity of HardiePlank is its impressive durability. It’s five times thicker than standard vinyl, and was developed to withstand harsh elements such as sharp-hitting hail and strong winds. If you’re planning a siding replacement, opting for HardiePlank will protect you throughout the seasons.

Color flexibility. James Hardie fiber cement products utilize ColorPlus® Technology, a finish application that helps eliminate debris and optimize adhesion. It resists chipping, peeling, cracking and fading. With HardiePlank, you’ll not only get a gorgeous color, but also one which lasts longer than your typical paint job.

Minimal maintenance. HardiePlank is resistant to bugs and won’t rot or burn under any circumstances. This means not only does it require minimal maintenance over time, but it also offers a safer option than other traditional siding products. In addition, James Hardie provides a 15-year warranty against peeling, chipping or cracking for its pre-painted planks.
