Hardie Architectural Collection Siding
James Hardie fiber cement siding will give your home decades of protection against the elements while maintaining its outstanding appearance. Where painted wood siding may crack and chip and other materials fade in a few years, your siding will still look like it was installed yesterday.
While lap siding is the most popular product James Hardie offers, for those looking for a different look or dimension, Hardie Architectural Collection vertical siding fits the bill perfectly. Possessing all of the same low-maintenance durability and long-lasting good looks, the vertical siding will give your home a unique look that’s sure to stand out.
Either on its own or combined with lap siding, Hardie Architectural Collection Panel (HAC) vertical siding gives your exterior the kind of visual upgrade to make your home stand out. Whether it’s a century-old farmhouse, a mid-century ranch, or a “mod” home with stylish architecture, HAC is often used with lap siding, tongue and groove cedar siding, shingles, stone, and other materials to provide a true “wow” factor.
This integrated solution of panels and trims enables unique combinations of contemporary textures and architectural lines to achieve any style. HAC comes in a smooth sand panel, knockdown panel, and multi-groove panel styles. By including different lines into the exterior look of the home, you can give tried and true architecture a new dramatic flair.
We also install standard 4×8 vertical siding panels with battens that have a more traditional look. This siding comes in a few different styles, too. The smooth face siding lends a sleek finish to your home while Select Cedarmill mimics the look of wood (without the worry of rot or pest damage). Vertical siding is easy to clean, too, which makes this option a very low-maintenance choice.
No matter how good the siding looks, incorrect installation will lead to problems down the road. Small gaps in the siding or incorrect fastening to the home could lead to water damage underneath the material. That’s why it’s so important to hire a contractor that understands how vertical siding is installed.
