Finally! The Low-Maintenance Siding You’ve Desired!
Stucco siding’s consistent moisture penetration, cracking, and need for upkeep can drain your time and money. And wood siding often suffers costly moisture invasion.
If you’re tired of the tedious work it takes to constantly keep your wood siding sealed, overwhelmed with wood rot and other damaging effects of wood siding, or annoyed at the dents and thin makeup of vinyl siding, we’ve got good news for you. James Hardie fiber cement siding offers you low-maintenance siding that lasts decades!
Why is it that fiber cement is so low-maintenance? It begins with Hardie siding’s strong makeup: a proprietary blend of cement, sand, and cellulose. These combined ingredients bind together to withstand weather elements, moisture penetration, and pest infestation. They even resist fires, making your home the safe, well protected refuge you desire.
Clean your siding
Easy maintenance includes cleaning your Hardie siding once or twice a year with a simple garden hose and a medium bristle nylon brush. Gently scrub any areas where dirt or grime has accumulated, and rinse with a hose. Avoid the temptation to use a power washer that could damage your siding due to its high pressure.
Visually inspect your siding
After you have a severe storm in your area, and once each spring and fall, do a visual inspection on your home siding. Look for areas that show a need for attention or repair, and promptly address any concerns.
Caulk your siding as needed
Keep an eye on your siding’s caulking, and when needed, simply replace it to keep your home well sealed. The caulking around windows and doors should be particularly watched, and if it’s failing, replace it promptly.
Why Homeowners Love Hardie Siding
The multiple advantages of Hardie siding will keep you smiling for decades to come. Siding must be built to be tough in order to withstand the elements 24/7. Hardie siding looks great and protects your home from rain, hail, high winds, storms, snow, ice, humidity, and sudden changes in temperature. It will insulate your home well, keeping your utilities bills manageable year-round. It withstands high winds, protecting your home from severe weather. And it looks fabulous for years to come due to its strong makeup.

4. Pest Resistance
Avoid the costly hassles of pest damage by protecting your home with low-maintenance siding. When termites or other insects infiltrate your siding, your home’s protection is compromised, leaving it vulnerable to moisture infiltration, wood rot, mold, and other damages due to moisture infiltration. Hardie siding is pest resistant including termites, stink bugs, carpenter ants, and more.
Hardie siding also stands up to woodpecker damage, saving you time and money. Woodpeckers tend to come back to the same place year after year and cause trouble. They’re looking for shelter, food, and a place to breed. Woodpeckers wreak havoc on wood siding as they feast on insects. The durability of this outstanding siding makes it impenetrable so woodpeckers simply leave it alone, giving you the low-maintenance siding you deserve.
5. Long-Lasting Color
Painting your home exterior is a tedious task, and most homeowners are thrilled to hear that Hardie siding comes in two options: pre-primed and ready to paint after installation, or finished at the factory with baked-on color. Hardie’s baked-on ColorPlus® technology gives you long-lasting color that stays vibrant. Warrantied up to 15 years, this gorgeous color gives you confidence your home will look beautiful for years to come with its built-in UV protection and fade resistance. It won’t need to be repainted as often as other home exterior siding products, giving you the low-maintenance siding you’re looking for.
