5 Top Benefits of James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding

James Hardie fiber cement siding has many key benefits, not the least of which is beauty and resilience. It’s especially suited for New England homes, which are subjected to extreme temperatures all year long. If you’re considering new siding, choose a material that’s not only durable and but that can also handle the brutal weather we experience here. Fiber cement not only adds value to your home, but it keeps you more comfortable throughout all seasons.

Here at Hi-Tech, we use and install James Hardie® fiber cement siding. There are many reasons why we enjoy working with this material. Here are five of them.

1.     Lots of Trim and Accessories Available – Fiber cement is available in a variety of sizes and styles, with planks marked by wood-grained or smooth finishes, your choice. Plus, you can choose from widths of four to 12 inches. This makes it easy to match existing siding if you are putting an addition onto your home, or if you are considering adding overhangs of vertical grooves and soffit panels to add character. 


2.     Perfect For Our Climate – Fiber cement siding pairs well in most climates, especially hot, humid regions like New England in summer, or in cold regions like we have in winter. Not only does it resist cold, snow and rain, it resists moisture unlike wood. Plus, termites can’t burrow through due to its composition of cement and sand. And if you live at the coast, rest easy knowing James Hardie fiber cement resists salt air and high humidity.

3.     It’s Low Maintenance – No one wants to put a lot of time and energy into cleaning their siding. Fortunately, with fiber cement, there’s very little upkeep required. Now, you can free up your time without having to worry about cleaning, maintaining and repairing your siding every year.

4.    The Color Stands Up – Yes, it’s true that fiber cement comes in a wide selection of colors and designs, but the best part of that is it resists fading over the years. It’s this retention of color that lends it such a vibrant appearance, no matter how many years have gone by.

5.     It Can Boost Your Property Value and Curb Appeal – If you’re going to add new siding to your home, it might as well be a material that boosts your property value and curb appeal! If you’re debating between vinyl and fiber cement, consider this: ROI on fiber cement siding is better than vinyl, sitting at about 83 percent. It’s true you will shell out more at first for fiber cement, but you must realize you’re getting a higher quality product and a longer-lasting lifespan. If you plan on selling the home in the near future, prospective buyers will find fiber cement more attractive and may be willing to pay more for it.
