All styles are Engineered for Climate® and come primed, or with baked-on ColorPlus® Technology. Best of all, James Hardie siding is non-combustible. Our full spectrum of brilliant colors and natural-looking textures provides plenty of options for designing a classic house in any style. Even thou cement board siding, has been around forever, its popularity seems to come in streaks. Typically billed as a low-maintenance, long-lasting material, does it measure up to its reputation? Here are the pros, cons and costs of hardie board siding to see how it looks under scrutiny.
This siding seems to be a rising trend in the industry lately. It’s a product that lasts, comes in a wide variety of textures and colors, and it’s affordable. The benefits extend beyond those factors, and when it comes to hardie board siding, there is a long list of pros.
Most hardie board siding comes with a 50-year, limited transferable warranty. This siding is completely rot and insect resistant and can even handle salt spray from the ocean.
Hardie board siding can be made to mimic just about any other siding material, including wood lap boards, cedar shingles, and wood shake siding. Color options are virtually unlimited. These colors are typically accompanied by a 10 to 15 year warranty on the finish.
Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Hardie board siding is 90 percent sand and cement which makes it fire-resistant. Case in point, a St. Paul Minnesota house fire torched two fire trucks parked 60 feet away, but the cement board siding home next door, 50 feet away, remained unscathed.
Whether you’re looking for a siding material that can withstand the next Katrina, or one that can fend off the next summer hailstorm without sustaining damage, cement board siding is a proven commodity in the weather department.
What’s not to like about hardie board siding? Two things stand out. First of all, because of its weight, the siding requires more resources to install than other siding materials. Second, it’s not a maintenance-free siding material. You will have to repaint it in time.
Hardie board siding requires more planning, a larger labor force, and takes longer to install due to its composition. It weighs about 300 pounds (100 square feet) compared to 60 to 70 pounds for vinyl siding. This can increase labor and installation costs as compared to vinyl or aluminum siding.
It has to be re-painted periodically. Although the warranty is usually for 50 years, hardie board siding finishes are only guaranteed for 15 years..
In accordance to
Remodeling Magazine (Cost vs. Value 2019 Annual Report) siding projects of approximately 1,250 square feet – Hardie board siding runs approximately $3.00-5.25 per foot, however, our competitors we have seen are double or even triple that price! NO JOKING! To boot, this doesn’t even include removing off the old siding and hauling it away. But our prices do. Still, this could lead to a total cost that are higher than other siding choices. You have to consider the amount of siding you’ll need, how long it will take and any additional fees for equipment and materials. However, if the pros speak to you more than the cons, the price doesn’t matter that much.
