All of the styles offered in this comprehensive line are Engineered for Climate® and come primed or with baked-on ColorPlus® Technology. With a wide range of brilliant hues and natural-looking textures, bestseller HardiePlank lap siding promises an expertly chosen array of options for any home. It’s a great option for homeowners seeking to enhance their curb appeal and beautify their home.
Here are some advantages and features of Jame Hardie siding to consider:
Resists the elements without expanding or contracting
Because siding is your home’s first line of defense for ever-changing weather, it is essential to determine which product best suits your climate. In a region like Richmond, where there are seasonal extremes in temperature and precipitation year-round, using traditional siding can create more problems than solutions.
Traditional wood siding is susceptible to rot, decay, vermin, and accumulation of moisture. With HardiePlank lap siding, you are offered the best security from the potential maintenance issues that standard wood products would require. Its non-combustible exterior defends your home against the effects of the elements with little or no maintenance.
Ordinary vinyl siding expands and contracts with the seasonal changes in weather. It is one of the negatives when using typical vinyl products. Not so with HardiePlank lap siding! Your home will look clean and sharp for years to come with the dimensional stability this siding offers.
HardiePlank lap siding delivers a natural wood-look without the vulnerability of traditional wood. Consider it the best of both worlds. You can meet today’s safety requirements for the modern home with a robust alternative that won’t leave your dwelling at higher risk from fire, water damage, or termites. Traditional wood siding cannot compare with it.
With a handful of textural styles to choose from, ranging from smooth to be added, you can select the overall look and feel that best suits your home’s aesthetic.
To give your home a brilliant finish, each piece of HardiePlank lap siding goes through a multi-step process.
Starting with a coat of ColorPlus Technology which adds both vibrancy and durability, each piece of siding is then coated with a multiple layer finish, using 50% more than the average residential painter uses. Between coats, it is then cured in a controlled environment to ensure a stronger bond that gives it more excellent resistance to chipping, peeling, and cracking. Our ColorPlus Technology also combats fading with UV-Ray resistance, so it will look good for years to come.
Curated by James Hardie’s color experts, the vibrant color selections have been carefully selected to give you confidence in getting the best choices for your home without being overwhelmed. ColorPlus Technology also comes with a 15-year limited warranty, ensuring years of wear and flair.
“Hardie retains the look of wood and also with the ColorPlus, it’s all one uniform color. It’s just a much more attractive look,” notes Terry Stamman, a siding professional who recommends James Hardie products over wood-based alternatives.
