This is where James Hardie stands out from its competitors. James Hardie products are specifically engineered to withstand damage from moisture and rot, and will hold their own, come rain, sleet, or snow.

But since James Hardie products are created to stand up to the demands of your specific climate, they will look great for years, saving you time and money. With the James Hardie’s added benefit of ColorPlus® Technology—a baked-on color option that resists fading—your siding will look great without excessive maintenance.
In case of a fire, you want to know that that walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire feasts on wood, and it melts vinyl almost instantly. But James Hardie siding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.
