James Hardie siding is also known as fiber cement siding. It is frequently used on both commercial and residential siding projects. This siding material is made from a combination of cement and cellulose fibers. In the past the cement was often reinforced with asbestos, making it more dangerous than other siding materials. However, current practices use safer reinforcement materials than in the past making the final product extremely strong, flexible, and less dangerous. It is so durable (known to last up to 50 years) that it is again becoming the siding material of choice. However, like all materials, James Hardie Siding has its advantages and its disadvantages. Read on to learn more about this siding material, or better yet, give us a call now for a free consultation.

What are the advantages of Hardie Siding?

Not only is James Hardie board siding durable, but it is also very long-lasting. It has one of the longest lifespans of all the siding materials available on the market. Because it is made from fiber cement, it won’t rot, warp, or buckle. It also comes with a warranty of 30 to 50 years. With professional installation and regular maintenance, James Hardie siding won’t require a replacement for a long time, if at all.

Fire Resistance

Another great benefit of this siding material is that it is completely fire resistant, meaning you can rest assured that your commercial or residential building is completely fire retardant from the outside. It will not buckle or warp from exposure to heat like some other materials, keeping the interior of your home wholly protected for years to come.

James Hardie siding is often chosen for its versatility of appearance and attractiveness. It mimics the look of wood with strategically placed grooves and unique wood grain patterns. It has all the beauty of natural wood, without any of the risks or high maintenance. You can choose from vertical or horizontal paneling with a variety of textures to look like shingles, stucco, or plain woodgrain. Any look is possible with this siding!

Storm Resistance

Not only is James Hardie siding completely resistant to fire, but it is also 100% waterproof and impact resistant making it a great siding choice for any climate. Inclement weather such as blizzards, strong winds, and hail will dent, crack, or compromise the integrity of other siding materials allowing the interior of a building to be exposed to the damaging effects of moisture, pests, and insects. This reason alone is a deciding factor for most property owners.

What to Consider About Hardie Siding

More Labor Intensive

One of the downsides of James Hardie siding is that it requires specialized professionals for its installation. The heavy weight of this material necessitates several people to move, cut, and secure it to the building with a precise hand. Because of this, the costs of labor can be slightly higher than other lighter-weight materials.


The second downside of James Hardie siding is that it does require periodic refinishing or repainting. With high-quality paint and proper application, you can expect this siding material to hold its fresh look for between 7 to 15 years. However, in particularly harsh weather conditions you can expect to have to refinish or repaint with more frequency.

“After calling around several exterior contractor companies, we felt most comfortable with the communication and expertise of KC Siding Specialists. My wife did a lot of research about Hardie siding and the team did a really good job of working with the materials we chose. We’ve had our new siding for over three years and are really impressed with its durability and construction. Even so, we felt at ease that KC Siding Specialists offered us a lifetime warranty on the labor. We couldn’t be happier!”
