Why choose James Hardie® siding? 
We're glad you asked!

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 have in store for you.
     There are many reasons to choose James Hardie siding over vinyl, the first of which is appearance. James Hardie siding is over five times thicker than vinyl, allowing for deeper grooves and a more authentic wood-grain effect. The result is more elegant than vinyl (which is plastic), particularly on a historic home.
     Rarely is there a product that combines beauty and durability. James Hardie siding is one of those rare products. Re-siding with fiber cement is the smartest investment you can make in your house. Even smarter: Choosing fiber cement from the industry leader. That’s why those in the know choose James Hardie® siding and trim. In 20 years you will say to yourself, "I made the right decision. I got the right product. I hired the right company."
     Then comes function. Vinyl melts easily in a fire (or even from the reflection of the sun off Low-E glass windows); James Hardie products are noncombustible. Vinyl may crack and warp from the elements; James Hardie products are more durable and resist warping, sagging and melting.

James Hardie® Siding vs Vinyl

James Hardie® siding is the very best choice for siding for your home. Period. There are countless reasons why and we will discuss a few of them on this page. Let's face it, vinyl siding is cheaper to install. However, like most cheaper alternatives in life, it's not a very good value in the longer term, in fact, it's not a very good value in the shorter term either.
Five Things to Consider About Vinyl Siding...

1. It's Only A Cover-Up. Since vinyl siding is typically installed over your old problematic existing siding your current problems may continue to get worse. Additionally, since vinyl is not tightly nailed to the home, it invites insects and moisture to build behind panels, potentially penetrating the structure of the home.
2. It's Flammable. Vinyl siding will melt or warp when exposed to a significant source of heat or flame. Some cases have even been reported that vinyl siding has melted and warped due to the heat from the reflection of the sun from a nearby neighbor's window.
3. It Fades. If you've been told that vinyl siding lasts a "Life-Time", think again. Over time all colors are going to fade from the sun. So with vinyl what are my options:
a. Install a replacement piece. Good luck finding a matching color.
b. Pay to have the entire wall, or house resided with vinyl again.
c. You can attempt to paint it, but because it was designed to expand and contract with climate changes, painted vinyl panels tend to crack and peel over time.
4. The Warranty. What does "Life-Time" really mean? Be sure to closely review the warranty's fine print to see what is truly covered and for how long. Review closely a vinyl manufacturer's definition of "Normal Weathering." Ask your vinyl sales rep how much is (4) Hunter Units. In addition most of those warranties have confusing pro-ratings that almost always favor the manufacturer.
5. Curb Appeal. Although vinyl siding attempts to imitate the look of wood siding, aesthetically it falls short. Many would argue that its overlapping seams and faux wood grain are very unnatural, leaving the home looking like plastic and lacking curb appeal.
