James Hardie Siding

Installing high-quality siding can improve your home’s performance, aesthetic appearance, and value. You want your siding in San Antonio to outperform conventional siding material like engineered wood, which is vulnerable to a number of problems. At Southwest Exteriors, we recommend James Hardie® fiber cement siding products. Here are the main advantages of James Hardie siding:

  1. Doesn’t Absorb Water: Siding is constantly exposed to rainwater, almost as much as your roofing. Traditional wood-based siding absorbs water, which causes paint to blister and peel. Moisture also makes the siding swell, warp, and become unstable. James Hardie fiber cement siding is water resistant and doesn’t have any of these problems. In fact, it doesn’t require any painting at all, as it comes with molded-in colors.
  2. Strong: James Hardie is stronger than wood-based siding due to its fiber-cement construction. This means it will stand up to wear and tear from severe weather and extreme temperatures more effectively than other siding materials.
  3. Weather Resistant: James Hardie siding is exceptionally durable, even with constant exposure to sun, wind, and rain. The HardieZone® system ensures that your San Antonio siding replacement will be specifically engineered for your local climate.
  4. Low Maintenance: This siding requires very little maintenance and upkeep. The molded-in colors eliminate the need for repainting. The siding also sheds dirt and dust more effectively than vinyl products, meaning all you need is a simple garden hose to clean your exterior.

With an ongoing commitment to industry innovations, research, and development in siding products, James Hardie will provide better protection than wood-based siding options.
