One of the biggest challenges for national companies is coming up with products that work universally, but with options simple enough for users to understand and make choices from. James Hardie® is one such company, thanks to the HardieZone® System. As a James Hardie Elite Preferred Remodeler, let Twin Cities Siding Professionals tell you about how this system helps homeowners choose climate-appropriate siding for their homes.
The HardieZone System
The HardieZone System is designed to fulfill the need for siding that works for specific climates. For instance, siding designed for warm Texas climates can’t be sold to homeowners here in Minnesota, and vice versa. The HardieZone System eliminates much of the complication associated with finding products for specific applications.
James Hardie developed the HardieZone System by considering eight climatic factors that affect siding performance, which helped identify 10 distinct climatic zones that had enough similarities to be grouped into two zones: the HZ5™ and HZ10™ Zones. When you choose James Hardie siding from certified contractors, you enjoy the benefits of James Hardie siding, with the peace of mind knowing that it’s designed for the local climate, minimizing the need for siding repair.
HZ5 and HZ10
At Twin Cities Siding Professionals, we offer James Hardie HZ5 siding, designed for cold northern climates. With distinctive features such as a 15-degree waterjet edge cut, embossed nail lines, and special tinting, HZ5 siding helps reduce water absorption, fortifies the house’s exterior surface, and works like a drip edge that keeps rainwater from seeping into the drywall.
James Hardie HZ10 siding products, on the other hand, are engineered to work with warm and humid southern climates, where scorching heat, strong winds, and torrential rains can put the strongest home exterior to the test. It comes with features like resistance against extended exposure to sunlight, hurricane force winds, and air with high saline content, the latter of which is typical in coastal areas like in Florida.
In addition to all these features, you can also benefit from James Hardie’s other siding features like a wide selection of colors and textures, plus a superior 30-year non-prorated warranty.
