What Makes Fiber Cement Siding the Best Choice for New England?

Looking to update your home’s siding? Living in New England, it is important to choose a material that is durable and can stand up to the harsh weather variations we experience. On top of that, it can create more value for your home and keep you more comfortable in all seasons.

While the ROI on vinyl siding is nothing to sneeze at, it is even better with fiber cement siding, which gives you an ROI of 83 percent. You may spend a little more on fiber cement siding at the outset, but you are receiving a higher quality product that will last longer than other materials.

James Hardie® fiber cement siding in particular is a wise choice, with four million installations throughout the country and counting. It is a particularly excellent option in New England for many reasons:

  • Technologically advanced material that is “tuned” specifically for New England weather conditions
  • Rugged, durable surface
  • Comes in a wide selection of colors and designs
  • Adds value and beauty to your home
  • Gives you the traditional look of natural wood siding minus the maintenance and rot issues.
  • No fading
  • No flaking
  • Optimal color durability
  • Wide variety of trim and accessories
  • Resists fire, wind, insects and rain
  • Environmentally friendly

James Hardie’s “HardieZone” formulation for New England is made to  withstand our harsh cold, snow and ice in the winter, and hot, humid conditions in the summer. Moisture is no match for fiber cement, because it won’t rot no matter how wet it gets. Plus, termites won’t invade because fiber cement siding is made of cement and sand, not wood. It also resists salt air and high humidity levels, which is great if you live near the coast.

Fiber cement comes in many sizes and styles, with planks featuring wood-grained or smooth finishes being particularly popular right now. Choose from widths of four to 12 inches, which makes it easy to match existing siding if you are adding onto your home such as with an addition or garage. You can switch things up a bit with overhangs of vertical grooves and soffit panels.
