HardiePlank siding is perfect for Houston and is already protecting thousands of beautiful homes along the Gulf Coast. Here are the reasons why.
First of all, HardiePlank siding has the warmth and charm of wood without the cost and upkeep. You can have it painted any color you want and it will hold paint better and last longer than wood. It's beautiful.
Secondly, it resists the rot we have here in humid Houston. If you look up humidity in the dictionary, there is a picture of Houston. Wood siding absorbs moisture, swells up and over time gets "punky" -- rotten and crumbly. HardiePlank siding is a fiber cement board, will not rot and has a 50-year transferable lifetime warranty.
Thirdly, HardiePlank siding resists damage from rain, hail and flying debris of hurricanes like we have here in Houston. If that is not enough for you, it is also non-combustible.
James Hardie® products include horizontal HardiePlank lap siding, HardieShingle® siding, HardiePanel® vertical siding, HardieTrim® planks and HardieSoffit® panels in a variety of finishes. Almost every popular style of siding is available in a James Hardie product.
