Exterior home remodeling projects are growing in popularity, most notably siding replacement. Upgrading your curb appeal will protect your investment and the quality and life of your home, and choosing maintenance free siding and insulation is the easiest way to gain more than just looks.
Siding has made enormous strides over the years, but the choices are still endless, between wood, cedar, vinyl, concrete composite, it is hard to know where to begin. So, we’ll start with the brand we trust most, James Hardie siding.
James Hardie has developed a concrete composite siding made from sustainable materials including sand, wood, fiber, cement and water. Appealing to the environmentalist in all of us, James Hardie uses their color plus technology to deliver high quality, long lasting finishes with sustainable advantages over paint applied in the field, by eliminating VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that release into the air upon reapplication.
Replacing siding can not only bring out that hidden sophistication of a mid-century home, but can also eliminate problems with insulation and energy waste. The character of a home will be far from compromised and new siding might shed light on the amount of money you could save heating and air, maybe even enough to save up for that home addition you’ve been contemplating.
The consistent success we have had with John Hardie siding is backed by the 10 years of research and development of their 7th generation fiber cement building products, categorized by the HardieZone® System. This temperate zone system includes the relentless Chicago winter elements and the HardieWrap® products sustain and even thrive in this climate. Possibly the most attractive component of John Hardie products is the unbeatable 30-year siding, 15-year color and 10-year HardieWrap® warranties, far and away the best in the business.
