HardiePlank

Using the technical and manufacturing expertise it developed in Australia, James Hardie Inc. expanded its operations to become a world-leading, specialized, high-technology manufacturer of a wide range of fiber-cement building materials.

Today, James Hardie Inc. is purely a fiber-cement business. It operates in markets around the world, with manufacturing operations in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. The businesses employ over 2,500 people who generate revenue of more than $1.5 billion a year.

HardiePlank® lap siding is one of the most popular brands of siding in America, protecting and beautifying more from coast to coast. All styles are Engineered for Climate® and come primed, or with baked-on ColorPlus® Technology.

HardiePlank products are popular for many reasons, including the following:

Moisture and Rot Resistant

OSB or wood-composite siding has a tendency to expand, buckle, crack and mold when repeatedly exposed to precipitation. Vinyl siding installations may put you at risk for water intrusion, especially around windows and trim joints. James Hardie products are specifically engineered to withstand damage from moisture and rot, and will hold their own, come rain, sleet, or snow.

Durable over Time

One thing’s for sure: As the years go on, we all show signs of aging. But since James Hardie products are created to stand up to the demands of your specific climate, they will look great for years, saving you time and money. With the James Hardie’s added benefit of ColorPlus® Technology—a baked-on color option that resists fading—your siding will look great without excessive maintenance.

Offer Good Fire Protection

In case of a fire, you want to know that that walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire feasts on wood, and it melts vinyl almost instantly. But James Hardie siding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire. Because James Hardie products are non-combustible, many insurance companies offer a discount.

Unsusceptible to Pests

Because it’s wood, OSB or wood-composite siding can be pecked by birds and devoured by insects. James Hardie fiber cement siding offers little appeal to critters and won’t be eaten by termites. So you can focus on the animals in your life that actually make you happy, not on those that cause distress and damages.

Weather Withstanding

Wood can peel, crack and expand in harsh weather conditions like hurricanes and tornados. James Hardie fiber cement siding helps resist the impact of hail and windblown debris and is designed to perform in extreme heat and cold.
