An Impressive History

Fiber cement siding was invented by James Hardie™ more than 30 years ago. Made from a blend of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers, James Hardie siding has been installed on more than 8 million homes across North America. Its popularity can be tied to several factors that make it hard to pass up for many homeowners. They include:

  • Better durability than many other siding products, as James Hardie fiber cement siding is more than five times thicker than vinyl siding
  • Increased aesthetic appeal, as fiber cement siding has deep grooves and an authentic wood-grain effect
  • Outstanding resistance to the elements, as fiber cement siding resists fire and water damage and won’t swell during temperature swings

Is Fiber Cement Siding Right for Your Home?

Because of its impressive engineering, James Hardie fiber cement siding costs more than vinyl and wood siding products. However, you can count on it to protect your home longer and, thanks to ColorPlus® Technology, which provides a lasting finish, you won’t have to worry about sanding and repainting.
