Why James Hardie?

If you have been on the hunt looking for good siding to install into your home, then you probably have run into the name James Hardie at least once, if not several times over. This is not surprising, considering they are one of the biggest names in the housing materials industry. But what is it exactly about James Hardie siding that makes it so special? As it turns out, quite a lot.

A History in Building

Hardie’s affiliation with building materials stretches all the way back to their origins in Melbourne Australia, where new Irish immigrant James Hardie started out selling oils and animal hide tanning products. However, he soon found big success in buildings and industrial products and made it onto the Australian stock exchange in 1951. In the 1980s the company changed the construction landscape with the development of fiber-cement, thanks to the material’s unique combination of durability, versatility, and strength. That same fiber-cement is still heralded internationally today, with their products distributed all over the world. 

Commitment to Innovation

Hardie doesn’t just bank on the number of years they’ve had in the industry. Their emphasis has always remained on the quality of there product, and their spending reflects this, allocating 20 million a year to research and development. The results are incredible innovations that offer the ultimate in protection and longevity to homeowners.

ColorPlus- In contrast to traditional siding that has the color painted on top, James Hardie has the colors baked into the siding. The result is fiber-cement pieces that won’t peel or fade over time, and will keep your house looking new for years.

HardieZone System- An industry first, HardieZone is a set of different lines of siding designed for different kinds of climates, ensuring the ultimate in protection needed for your home. The result is specialized siding that is engineered specifically for where you are, as opposed to other company’s attempting to create a “one size fits all” solution.

All of this culminates in James Hardie’s HardiePlank to be one of the best products on the market. It’s strong, sturdy, and won’t dent or crack. It won’t warp from temperature changes.
