Why Choose James Hardie?
Performance & Durability
Bad weather can strike at any time. So we test our products to better withstand worst-case scenarios: hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms, and more. But it’s not only extremes that break down siding—the change of seasons does a number on materials such as vinyl (which may crack in the cold) and wood products (which expand and contract with changes in moisture and humidity). Only James Hardie products are Engineered for Climate®.
All James Hardie® siding and trim products are available primed and ready for field painting. But when you invest in ColorPlus® Technology, you won’t only get gorgeous color—you’ll get color that lasts longer than a typical paint job.
Each generation strives to build a higher standard for tomorrow. To us, this means enriching communities with proportional, inviting and sustainable structures.
The James Hardie siding and trim portfolio of products helps you build on America’s rich architectural heritage.
