Need Tough and Beautiful Siding? With James Hardie You Get Both

We’ve noticed as we drive around the Minneapolis that winter has been hard on homes here.  What often shows up first is worn-out siding. 

Once your old siding reaches the end of its useful life, it’s best to replace it sooner rather than later. New siding often has better insulating properties, which in turn lowers your monthly utility bills. One of the best options to consider is fiber-cement from James Hardie Siding.

2016-02-15_1508Durable James Hardie Siding 
This brand of siding is made up of a mixture of cement, clay and wood. The blend makes it tough, but it still has the lovely appearance of real wood.

This remarkable combination makes it extraordinarily resilient to the temperature extremes our Minnesota climate brings.

It also stands up to water, fire, and age. Since it’s so resistant to moisture, it prevents rot from taking place.

ColorPlus® Paint – A Long-Lasting Finish
Everyone wants a comfortable home to return to. A big part of making a house a home is picking a color that fits in with your tastes.  Many siding products are only available in a few neutral colors.  Not Hardie siding.

When it comes to customizable aesthetics, fiber-cement siding is one of the best. ColorPlus® Technology provides a huge range of colors and a long lasting finish. The color is applied in multiple layers (more coats than a painter would apply), and each coat is baked on in between.  This helps make your home a place you can be proud of, while increasing curb appeal when the time to sell rolls around.  And the finish is enduring – the color will stay gorgeous for years.

Unique Siding Designs
Everyone has their own unique style, and that translates into their homes. James Hardie understands that and offers an endless blend of style, texture and color to fit any look. Whether you’d like to celebrate your community’s individual history or create a home that reflects your personality, there is an option perfect for you.  Siding is available in profiles from vertical board and batten to  to shingle to horizontal lap.  Combine the available designs with color choices for both siding and trim and you’ve got almost limitless possibilities.

If you’d like a siding option as versatile as it is durable, fiber cement siding is a great option for you.
