The main job of your siding is to protect your home from bad weather. That’s why Twin Cities Siding Professionals installs James Hardie® fiber cement siding for our customers. James Hardie optimizes their products specifically for our local weather conditions. This means their siding performs better when compared with other options that only offer a one-size-fits-all product.
What is the HardieZone System?
James Hardie engineered their siding in St. Paul using the HardieZone™ System. The HardieZone system ensures that homeowners receive the right product for their climactic region. James Hardie developed this system using eight climactic variables: UV, Topographical Factors, Rainfall, Humidity, Temperature Range, Hail, Hurricanes, and Snow.
These variables divided the country into distinct climate regions. James Hardie then developed the HZ5® and the HZ10® product lines for these regions. HZ5 is perfect for areas with extreme cold, snow and ice, and large temperature swings. HZ10, on the other hand, works best for areas with rain, humidity, heat, and long-term sun exposure. For St. Paul siding, James Hardie recommends their HZ5 product line.
What is the HZ5 Product Line?
James Hardie added new components to the formulation of their siding to develop the HZ5 line. This improved formulation leads to a reduced water absorption rate and increased strength under freezing climates. It also has a fortified surface for greater paint performance. It comes with a drip edge for better water management and maintains dimensional stability under harsh weather conditions. This St. Paul siding can protect your home effectively from anything the weather throws at it.
With the HardieZone system, you can rest easy knowing that your siding can face any weather condition. In addition to its durability and weather-resistance, James Hardie siding is a low-maintenance option. All it needs is the occasional wash to ensure that it stays vibrant and beautiful for many years to come. Call us at (651) 967 0873 to learn more about the HardieZone system.
