A well-designed house should make you happy whenever you see it. It simply feels good to have a polished home. The last thing you need is anxiety about how your siding is performing. Reliability is crucial. That’s why so many people choose James Hardie siding and trim. Plus, re-siding your home returns more value than any other major home exterior project, making it a better investment for your home.
Siding is exposed to Mother Nature all day, every day, for years. Weather, water, time, fire and pests—all can lead to trouble. That’s why James Hardie’s hardworking products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements. Bad weather can strike at any time. So we test our products to better withstand worst-case scenarios: hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms, and more. But it’s not only extremes that break down siding—the change of seasons does a number on materials such as vinyl (which may crack in the cold) and wood products (which expand and contract with changes in moisture and humidity). Only James Hardie products are Engineered for Climate®. Des Moines has extreme seasonal temperature variations and year-round precipitation. James Hardie HZ5 products are formulated with the highest quality raw materials and proprietary additives to reduce moisture intrusion. This helps prevent your siding from growing mold, shrinking, swelling and cracking.
