Hardie shingles offer substantial benefits to homeowners like you, especially when compared to obsolete vinyl siding. If you’re looking to refinish the outside of your home, then we invite you to consider the advantages of Hardie Siding. These include:

  • The look and feel of real wood. That’s because Hardie shingles are made from wood fibers reinforced and optimized with other natural components to create a durable yet beautiful siding material that will make your home stand apart as a place of taste and distinction.
  • Vibrant color that never fades or cracks. Say goodbye to painting the exterior of your home forever. Hardie™ shingles are protected by a high performance coating guaranteed to never blister, crack or peel, as long as you own your home.
  • Non-combustible and weather-resistant durability that withstands the effects of sun, wind, and all types of precipitation. Hardie shingles even have moldicide in the coating that protects against the growth of mold.
  • Trouble-free maintenance. Simply use a garden hose to wash off the occasional dirt or stain. Hardie shingles offer the easy care of vinyl while providing a more robust layer of protection for your home.
  • A 30-year transferable warranty on the product, plus a warranty on the coating that last for as long as you own your home. In addition, Southwest Exteriors adds our own 10-year labor guarantee on installation of Hardie shingles or siding.
  • Overwhelming acceptance across the country regardless of local building codes or home owner covenants. Because Hardie shingles are superior to vinyl siding, homeowners rarely have issues getting approval for their installation from regulatory bodies. Check with your local building inspector or association representative if you have specific questions.
