6. Fire Resistant

Traditional aluminum and/or vinyl siding will melt or warp under extreme heat and wood-based siding will burn causing extreme risk to families & structures. James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding is noncombustible and approved for fire-rated construction protecting the structures it is installed on.

7. Resistant to Extreme Weather

While many different items can easily damage your home I.E. hail, tree limbs, the neighbor’s baseball that gets hit over your fence, etc. all of those can damage vinyl siding requiring a repair. James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding in HZ5 can withstand breaking, cracking, shipping, warping and winds that reach over 150 mph.

8. Thick Material for Better Durability

Vinyl Siding is graded based on its thickness with top of the line premium vinyl siding only being .032mm – .048mm pieces of plastic. Jamie Hardie Siding is a full 5/16” thick construction using fibrous materials that bind together to create fiber cement for incredible durability that gives Columbus Ohio homeowners a more durable home that can stand up to anything mother nature sends our way!

9. Boosts Curb Appeal

Earlier in the blog we discussed the ColorPlus Technology and the various color options. There are many options for vinyl siding as well, most of which have wood grain qualities such as woodgrain, some are even dyed with specific shades of brown to look like different species of wood. These efforts to look like wood don’t come close to the beauty of James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding!

James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding in Cedarmill finish will give you the look of wood grain or you can choose Smooth finish if you’d prefer a different look without a woodgrain finish.
