James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding is the Choice for MN Extreme Weather

Extreme weather is something that can happen to anyone, anywhere. Some places like Minneapolis get more extreme weather than others.  Here in the Twin Cities harsh weather hits often – storms bring heavy snows, heavy rain, large gusts of wind, tornadoes, hail, and so forth, so you may want to reconsider the siding that you have on your home. Is it going to be able to withstand the weather that is coming your way?  Last winter was hard on many homes around the metro area, and many homeowners who needed to replace their siding opted to go with fiber cement from James Hardie.  James Hardie is the premier siding company that can provide you with the high quality siding that is able to stand up to the weather we get here in Minnesota.

09sep18h10a14James Hardie siding is known for their expertly engineered siding products. Their quality siding provides a way to protect your home against any and all weather elements. You’re able to choose from 20 different colors and also different styles and looks. This siding was designed for the beauty, value and protection of your home. Here are some reasons why you might want to go with James Hardie siding compared to all others.

  • One of the most durable products in the siding industry. You’re not able to find a more durable, yet long lasting siding product that is able to hold up like fiber cement siding. It outperforms vinyl and wood siding options. It is resiliant to cracking, chipping and wearing down from the outside weather elements. It will not expand or contract with the outside temperatures.
  • It is durable.  James Hardie siding is able to withstand wind speeds up to 150 mph. It is 5 times thicker than vinyl siding, which means it provides exceptional protection.
  • It is resistant to fire. It will not feed or start a fire, which is one of the best features of the product. Those that live in a home with James Hardie siding can be confident that their siding may keep them safer, plus many homeowners get discounts on their insurance because of this fact.
  • It isn’t prone to moisture damage since it is highly water resistant. It is not affected by heavy rains, or high waters. (Even those that have Hardie siding in hurricane regions state that their homes were still together when they came back to them after the storm.)

If it’s time for new siding before winter, James Hardie siding may be the best solution for you to go with for your home. You’re able to boost the curb appeal of your home, improve the durability and ensure that you have the protection from the weather that you need.
