How Long does James Hardie siding last?

James Hardie siding has a 30-year warranty from the manufacture. But in real-people talk; James Hardie fiber cement is more durable and lasts longer than vinyl siding and less maintenance than cedar siding. It does not absorb water, is hail & fire resistant and unlike OSB siding products does not allow insects or birds to penetrate.

How often does James Hardie siding need to be painted?

James Hardie siding has a 15-year paint finish warranty from the manufacture. A benefit of James Hardie siding is that IF you choose to sell your home, and the buyer does not love the color, they can paint it! Vinyl siding not paintable and this is why we see so many mid-western homes in beige…seller’s fear of color choice! So go BOLD with James Hardie and the array of color choices!

How much more $ is James Hardie siding that vinyl siding?

James Hardie Siding is fire & hail resistant–saving you on future insurance claims! (as your insurance company for a policy discount after James Hardie siding is installed!) When budgeting for new siding, James Hardie siding is 30-35% more expensive than vinyl. You can plan for James Hardie siding to cost roughly $10-$12 per square foot!

Is James Hardie Fiber Cement siding too heavy for my home’s walls?

The walls of homes were constructed to be sturdy and structural and can hold stone, brick and much heavier products than James Hardie siding! Don’t let OSB or vinyl competitors scare you with untrue statements!
