There’s more to exterior siding than just improving the curb appeal of a property. It also protects against damage stemming from not just severe weather conditions but also birds, insects and other pests. James Hardie®, one of the top siding brands in the market today, has siding products that are engineered to do just that. Siding and roof replacement contractor Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows explains further.
Strong, Thick Siding Panels
Siding products from James Hardie are made of fiber cement, a composite material composed of cement, fine sand and natural cellulose. With this combination, the company can manufacture siding that provides residential properties multiple layers of protection which discourages pest infestation and infiltration.
Because James Hardie siding is five times thicker than vinyl siding, you won’t have to worry about termites eating away at your home’s exterior. If you live in an area that is close to where birds and rodents are, installing fiber cement siding gives you peace of mind. Woodpeckers and squirrels can’t penetrate through its surfaces as easily as they do on a wood siding.
Benefits of James Hardie Siding
In addition to deterring damage caused by birds, insects and other pests, James Hardie siding products also show excellent fire resistance. When exposed over direct flame, it won’t easily ignite or serve as a source of the fire. Also, certain siding products like the HardiePlank® lap siding are less likely to expand and contract due to constant exposure to temperature fluctuations. In fact, they are made to withstand rot and moisture damage.
