Hardie Plank Lap Siding
Have you noticed your current house siding peeling, rotting, fading, or woefully out of date? You could have someone come out, remove the peeling paint, fill holes, or replace siding that has been damaged by the elements. If you have wood siding, this is something you’ll have to get used to.
Vinyl siding fades over time, aluminum siding is easily dinged or dented, and some older homes that have asbestos tiles for siding can be a health hazard! Why not consider Hardie Plank Lap Siding and leave many of those repairs and maintenance issues in the rear-view window?
Engineered for climates throughout the United States, James Hardie fiber cement siding is the most popular brand of siding in the country. The product resists pests including termites, stands up to the rain, snow, ice, and other weather conditions found in the Pacific Northwest, and looks great with very little maintenance.
This is the best-selling product James Hardie offers, both for its clean look and durability. Hardie Plank lap siding is available in two styles, Cedarmill and Smooth, giving homeowners a choice that best fits their styles. One will give your home a timeless look while the other offers a more modern look.
James Hardie offers this product in a wide variety of colors: their Statement Collection chooses the most popular colors and engineers them into the siding. Already have a color picked out? Hardie Plank products are also primed for paint, meaning as soon as it’s installed they’re ready for any and every color of the rainbow.
James Hardie Select Cedarmill lap siding offers the natural look of traditional wood siding without having to deal with the damage that often befalls natural wood. In addition to the classic woodlike grain finish, James Hardie also makes a fine-textured panel siding product. This is perfect for an additional splash of charm and interest to the exterior of your home.
Sharing all of the same characteristics of Select Cedarmill, the James Hardie Smooth fiber cement lap siding gives you the choice to go with a more modern look. Blending seamlessly with exterior house rock, window, steel, and other facades, you’ll have a unique combination of James Hardie Smooth lap siding and other attractive materials. Hardie siding also comes in a fine sand-grooved panel or board and batten style beaded style to give your curb appeal a different look.
