Made of fiber cement, HardieShingle® siding is usually installed on sidewalls. It features the James Hardie® ColorPlus® Technology, a factory-applied coating with an oven-baked finish, which lasts longer than your usual paint job. This product is also popular for its durability and ease of maintenance.
Read on to discover your HardieShingle profile options as well as its benefits.
Siding Profile Options
HardieShingle is popular in Cape Cod home styles, but it can be installed on any home. It has the look of natural cedar shake, but without the necessary maintenance. This product comes in different profiles that can give your home more character and appeal.
For a more classic look, you can go for its staggered edge panel or straight edge panel. Both profiles come in a wide selection of colors. These panels have a width of 48 inches and a length of 16 inches. You can also get more creative by choosing half-round shingles.
Why Choose HardieShingle® Siding?
Unlike wood siding, HardieShingle siding will not expand, contract, rot or crack. With this product, your home can stay protected against weather extremes and harsh outdoor elements. Traditional wood cladding requires a lot of upkeep to keep its appearance and prevent damage. On the other hand, HardieShingle doesn’t need to be stained or painted every few years. Its color lasts three times longer than most siding materials. However, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have it painted or stained.
Another great feature of fiber cement siding is its fire-resistance. Because HardieShingle doesn’t have organic material, it doesn’t attract insects and pests. Moreover, this product comes with a comprehensive warranty when installed by a certified James Hardie contractor.
