Other Siding Materials Can’t Compete With James Hardie

If our focus was on high-profit margins, plenty of low-cost siding options exist. But we know that James Hardie consistently rises above the competition and offers unparalleled advantages thanks to its unique attributes.

Proprietary Formula

At the heart of James Hardie’s strength lies its proprietary blend of ingredients. Unlike some competitors who use generic formulations, James Hardie meticulously crafts its fiber cement with:

  • High-density cellulose fibers: These fibers provide exceptional reinforcement and stability, preventing warping and cracking even under extreme weather conditions.
  • Portland cement: This high-performance binder offers superior strength and resilience, ensuring your siding withstands years of harsh sun and heavy rain.
  • Silica sand: This fine-grained aggregate enhances the overall density and rigidity of the siding, making it resistant to impact and everyday wear and tear.

The precise combination of these elements, and James Hardie’s proprietary manufacturing techniques, results in a durable fiber cement siding that is demonstrably stronger than competing brands.

Colorfast Technology

Utah’s intense sun can wreak havoc on exterior materials – causing fading and discoloration. James Hardie addresses this concern with its innovative Colorfast Technology. This unique process involves:

  • Through-body coloring: Unlike some brands that simply paint the surface, James Hardie colors the fibers themselves during manufacturing. This ensures consistent color throughout the entire thickness of the siding, making it virtually fade-proof.
  • Premium acrylic coating: An additional layer of UV-resistant acrylic coating further protects the color from the sun’s harsh rays, ensuring your home maintains its vibrant aesthetics for years to come.

By combining through-body coloring with a premium acrylic coating, James Hardie siding offers exceptional colorfastness, exceeding industry standards and safeguarding your investment against the relentless sun.

Weather Resistance Treatments

Weather-resistant James Hardie siding is built to better withstand the elements – extending its lifespan and reducing the need for frequent replacement. This superior siding comes complete with:

  • A hydrophobic barrier: This specially formulated coating repels water and prevents moisture absorption and subsequent damage like mold growth and rot.
  • Freeze-thaw protection: The unique composition of James Hardie siding allows it to withstand repeated cycles of freezing and thawing without cracking or spalling, a common issue with some fiber cement brands.
  • Fire resistance: James Hardie siding is non-combustible – offering additional protection against potential fire hazards.

These weather resistance treatments provide comprehensive protection against the diverse weather elements that Utah throws your way – ensuring your siding remains strong and intact for decades.

While strength and longevity are the biggest reasons we invest in James Hardie siding, this premium brand has even more advantages.
