Michigan is certainly known for its extreme weather. Bone-chilling, sub-zero temperatures in the dead of winter contrast with sultry summer days in the nineties. The siding on your home is a first line of defense against the vagaries of the Upper Midwest’s rigorous climate.
Highly Durable Siding
James Hardie siding is a high quality fiber cement product that is fade-resistant, insect-resistant and even hail-resistant. Blast it with pelting rains or heavy snows, and it will emerge ready for the next storm. It does not absorb moisture like wood products might, so James Hardie siding handles repeated wet-dry cycles with ease.
James Hardie’s innovative ColorPlus technology infuses each fiber cement board with color that is extremely resistant to cracking, chipping and fading. Fourteen colors are available, ensuring that one or more will fit your desired color scheme.
Established American Company
The company dates back to 1888. Today, James Hardie is a solid, established concern that employs over 2,000 American workers. The company invests over $20 million/yr in research and development. It backs its siding with a generous 30-year, non-pro-rated warranty.
Excellent Return on Investment
According to Remodeling magazine, there is no better renovation project than one completed with fiber cement siding. Every year, the magazine publishes a cost vs. value report that looks at almost three dozen remodeling projects in over 100 U.S. markets. From 2005-2014, fiber cement siding projects outranked all others in terms of ROI (return on investment). It beat out other home improvement projects like kitchen remodels, roof replacements and vinyl siding.
