Nothing Compares to James Hardie Siding
There are numerous types and styles of siding to choose from, and the decision can become more difficult when every contractor you talk to is pushing a different one. At Twin Cities Siding Professionals we only install siding from America’s #1 siding brand- James Hardie. No other siding can match the beauty, durability, and value of James Hardie fiber cement siding, and homeowners have made it the clear cut choice for their homes. But just in case you are thinking of installing a different type of siding, we’ve put together this comparison of the different siding types to James Hardie siding.
This siding is a popular choice, but does not hold up as well as fiber cement. It requires constant maintenance, including painting, scraping, and removal of mold and mildew. The warranty, while 50 years, has provisos placed in the fine print that insulate it from any liability due to moisture damage. It is also combustible and susceptible to insects, unlike fiber cement, which is both fire and insect resistant.
While a beautiful and traditionally a good choice for homeowners, comparing cedar siding to fiber cement is like comparing the Model T to a Tesla. Cedar siding requires constant maintenance, and even in peak condition is less sturdy, durable, and customizable than fiber cement. Plus, with HardiePlank on the market, less trees are needed to create siding choices like cedar, reducing the impact our industry makes on the environment.
Steel or Aluminum Siding
Metal siding cannot hold up to hail storms, something Minnesota is no stranger to. In addition, over time metal siding changes colors and loses the initial attractive finish. James Hardie siding offers superior strength and durability, keeping its baked on finish throughout the entirety of its lifespan with little to no maintenance from you.
Unable to stand up to harsh weather and high winds, vinyl siding is filling landfills all across America. Many homeowners have to replace their vinyl siding more than once in a 10-year span, an unacceptable number for Twin Cities Siding Professionals. Our James Hardie siding is tested for high winds, harsh weather, and storm damage before it ever leaves the factory, ensuring that it will stand up strong to Minnesota’s rugged climate.
Other Fiber Cement Siding
Other companies do produce fiber cement siding, but none match the quality of James Hardie fiber cement. They use inexpensive manufacturing processes and materials that result in siding that cannot come close to the superior performance of James Hardie fiber cement. We have seen too many homes with failed fiber cement from Hardie’s discount competitors.
