Durable Hardie Siding
Hardie siding, also known as James Hardie siding, fiber cement siding, and cement board siding protects over 8,000,000 homes. This long-lasting siding is known for its high performance, endurance, low maintenance, and beauty. James Hardie is such a reliable manufacturer—they just celebrated their 125th anniversary! Hardie’s technology in siding innovation has made homes more attractive and durable than ever.
This global manufacturer of fiber cement introduced it to the United States in the 1990s. Additional innovations such as The HardieZone® System were formulated to combat the distinct weather conditions of your home’s geographic location.

The annual research and development invested in Hardie siding keeps this outstanding manufacturer on the cutting edge of the needs of today’s homeowners.
Here are some reasons Denver households choose Hardie siding:
The Longevity of Hardie Siding
The durability, versatility and strength of Hardie siding make it highly appealing to homeowners throughout the United States, and particularly beneficial to those who live in places that incur weather extremes such as snow, ice, high winds, and extremely cold temperatures.
When Hardie siding was brought to America, it gave homeowners a superior alternative to the most popular siding types of that era: vinyl siding, wood siding, and aluminum siding. Hardie siding continues to live up to both the design and durability expectations of homeowners throughout the U.S.
Hardie siding lasts up to 50 years when installed properly and maintained. Imagine the time and money you will save because your siding won’t need to be replaced again for literally decades once you have fiber cement siding installed.
The Low Maintenance of Hardie Siding
Wood siding needs time-consuming, costly upkeep regularly in order to keep moisture from invading and causing wood rot, mold, mildew, and other destruction. Vinyl siding gets easily dented, warped, and damaged, leaving homeowners with the need to repair or replace their siding. Hardie siding is built to last, and endures weather with ease. The only maintenance it needs is a simple washing twice a year.
With a basic garden hose and medium bristle nylon brush, remove any accumulation of dirt and grime from your Hardie siding to keep it looking fabulous for decades. Keep an eye on your siding’s caulking and if any of it needs replacing, simply do so. That’s it!
The High Return on Investment (ROI) of Hardie Siding
Boost your home value by installing Hardie siding and trim products. From a rustic chic Board-and-Batten look to popular lap siding, Hardie siding brings out the best in your home’s looks. Get a higher sales price for your home when it comes time to sell, and enjoy a sizable return on your investment (ROI).
The Climate Specific Qualities of Hardie Siding
The HardieZone System created a local approach to siding properties. The weather conditions of your specific climate are matched with siding engineered to overcome your distinct climate. Damage from your weather conditions is avoided as the HardieZone System protects your Hardie siding from the long-term effects of your region’s weather.
The Color Retention of Hardie Siding
The James Hardie company created ColorPlus® Technology, combining Hardie fiber cement siding with baked-on color that bonds with their siding products. This durable, low maintenance finish delivers greater fade resistance and color retention than traditional home exterior paint.
The factory applied finish is cured between coats, delivering even better adhesion and color retention to your home exterior. Designer-picked color combinations take the guesswork out of choosing the best look for your home, and provide the optimal complement to your home architecture.

The Initial Investment of Hardie Siding
When you find a good product that lasts up to 50 years, it’s worth the initial investment. Although some people may look at the investment as a “con” to Hardie siding, the fact that you’re spending more than the price of vinyl and less than the price of brick to install Hardie siding shouldn’t be hard to swallow when you know it will last up to 50 years and protect your Denver home in spite of its 24/7 exposure to the harsh Colorado elements.
