How the James Hardie® HardieZone® System Works


Each region in the United States has its own unique climatic conditions – from the humidity of Florida to the freezing temperatures of Minnesota. Climate isn’t one-size-fits-all, so your exterior siding shouldn’t be either. Fiber cement siding manufacturer James Hardie® took it upon themselves to develop a solution: the HardieZone® system.

Eagle Creek Siding, the leading provider of residential and commercial siding in the region, shares a glimpse of how this innovative system works below:

The HardieZone System, Explained

Put simply, it’s a tool specifically designed to help homeowners choose the product line that will best withstand the rigors of their local climate. Not only that, it also helps homeowners make an informed decision about what siding will best suit their home in terms of durability and aesthetic appeal. Whether you live somewhere hot and arid or wet and humid, there’s a James Hardie® siding product that will perfectly match your home. All you have to do is enter your zip code.

Siding Made For You

After identifying 10 climatic zones for North America based on the HardieZone system, the experts at James Hardie were able to create two distinct product lines for re-siding projects:

  • HZ5®  for zones 1-5 – This product line is engineered to cater to homes in cold, freezing climates.
  • HZ10® for zones 6-10 –   This line offers durability and protection for homes in areas that experience hot, humid conditions, storms and hurricanes.

Regardless of your choice, James Hardie® products all come with top-quality paint adhesion and moisture resistance for optimal performance. In addition, they’re available in a wide range of color and design options, so you can enjoy siding that’s both durable and appealing to the eye.
