James Hardie siding is an exceptional option that complements a broad range of preferences and architectural types. Below are some of the reasons why James Hardie siding is so popular. Fiber cement is a non-toxic product, exceptionally durable, and suitable for long-lasting house siding. Fiber cement is a mix of cement, fly ash, water, and wood pulp that is extremely resistant to wear and strain.

Doesn’t easily wear down — Fiber cement is not like wood that rots. It is also not like brick or stone that erodes.

Unappealing to pests — It is resistant to insects and other pests, so you won’t have to worry about carpenter ants, termites, or other bothersome critters.

Great in any weather — Hardie siding is intended for climate, which means it has particular product lines designed to withstand Chicago’s harsh, snowy winters as well as the city’s damp, windy weather.

Fiber cement siding installation makes your home in Chicago even more beautiful as it:

Mimics many styles — Due to its versatility, it is designed to seem like real wood, stucco, brick, or stone, giving you a beautiful aesthetic.

Available in many color options — James Hardie siding installation is available as either primed for painting or features a baked-on color that keeps it appearing bright and new for years through its proprietary ColorPlue® technology.

Highly customizable — Homeowners can customize a design with any style they want with the array of Hardie board siding boards, panels, and trims available in James Hardie’s diverse product lines.

Regular upkeep is necessary for stone, brick, wood, and stucco, such as painting, regular repairs, and refinishing, while fiber cement siding replacement requires far less. Consider the following for your home’s exterior siding:

Stays in place — At Buzz Siding Contractors, you won’t have to worry about falling or loose boards if your fiber cement siding is placed correctly.

Resists moisture — To improve the protective characteristics of the caulk, reapply it along the edges every few years.

Retains its color — Compared to wood, fiber cement siding does not need to be repainted or retreated every few years and may last for 12 to 15 years.
