When it comes to high-quality siding James Hardie is probably one of the most well-known brand names on the market and for a good reason.
James Hardie is known specifically for their cement backer board aka fiber cement siding products - a popular siding material that has many advantages for homeowners. Advantages and benefits that far outweigh the potential higher cost.
Fiber Cement Siding is very tough against the elements, resists insects, fungus and mold, uv damage, and even fire!
This siding is non-combustible and will not produce any harmful fumes if it were to catch on fire. Rated as a Class A material, fiber cement is one of the safest sidings you can install on your home.
Fiber cement siding is also eco-friendly. The main ingredient in fiber cement siding is sand. This means that it does not require felling trees to create this product like other siding products on the market.
