Choosing a siding material for your home can often find you caught between the leading brands on the market today. Beyond brand name, however, it pays to consider just how well the materials stack up against each other.
Universal Roofing, the top suppliers of James Hardie® siding in Indianapolis, IN, looks at how well it fares against engineered wood:
Performance and Durability
Wood is always susceptible to an array of moisture related issues, such as peeling paint, swelling, warping, and structural instability. James Hardie siding, on the other hand, features premium fiber cement, which resists water damage with ease.
You should also consider the fact that wood is a flammable material, and can be a nesting ground for termites and other pests. James Hardie siding does not ignite when exposed to direct flame, nor does it contribute fuel to the fire. It is also pest resistant.
Appearance and Maintenance
Many people fancy wood because of its ingrained texture and unique appearance. The problem is that these features often come with a price – high maintenance. James Hardie offers this same look through its HardiePlank® and HardieShingle® siding options. These products are fade-resistant, multi-coated, and come with a baked on finish with a 15-year warranty. In short, James Hardie siding gives you that rich wood-grained look with none of the maintenance.
