Hardie Board Siding
Hardie Board is a type of fiber cement siding that is exceptionally strong and resistant to elements and extreme climates. Once installed, it effectively mimics the grain, texture and beauty of traditional wood siding. But because it’s impervious to the elements, it won’t retain moisture like natural wood — which can lead to problems like rotting and warping. These climate-resistant properties ensure that your Hardie Board Siding will maintain its look and integrity for the lifetime of the building, unlike traditional siding options which require periodic maintenance or replacement. It’s also an ideal choice if you’re looking for customizable design options for your building project; distinct Hardie Board exterior collections allow you to craft every detail of your home.
Amongst the most common options of siding, Hardie Board is a standout if environmental concerns are a priority. Because it will last the lifetime of the building, you won’t be creating any unnecessary waste. As an added plus, the Hardie Board company is committed to reducing waste and carbon dioxide emissions and they employ various strategies to remain environmentally responsible.
Durability. Hardie Board fiber cement siding has been tested and proven to stand up to the elements: hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms and more. It’s also incredibly strong, rot- and insect-resistant and can endure harsh environmental conditions.
Style. Hardie board siding is pliable and customizable; color and style options are virtually unlimited. It can be customized in many different ways to suit your aesthetic needs. Looking to revitalize a historic property? Hardie Board allows you to create a historically accurate and architecturally correct finish.
Fire Resistance. Hardie Board siding is 90 percent sand and cement, making it extremely fire-resistant. It won’t ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.
