James Hardie Plank Siding: General Performance Attributes
Hardie Plank is available in one of the
widest color assortments available in the industry. Choose a cement fiberboard
that bears a striking resemblance to wood grains or choose other textures to
match your architecture. Unlike wood siding, James Hardie siding is an impermeable
siding and fire-resistant product that resists many common forms of damage that
threaten traditional wood exterior siding — including
water damage to exterior walls and insulation, rotting, mold, mildew, and
damage from insects, particularly termites.
James Hardie siding products are non-combustible,
comprised of Portland cement, cellulose fibers, ground sand and other
additives. James Hardie Plank Siding products provide homeowners with a wide
range of texture options, and easily pass standard one-hour fire tests, high
winds, and this exterior house siding also has an extremely high impact
Improved Performance Siding Relative to Local Climate Factors
James Hardie Industries originally
developed this product over 100 years ago to meet the needs of homeowners
living in the extreme climate conditions of Australia’s arid interior and
deserts. The company has continuously improved the product’s performance and its
flexibility-in-use for diverse climate conditions worldwide.
James Hardie siding products resist
extreme climate conditions. In fact, this innovative product is fabricated to
perform better relative to eight major climate and weather factors. You can
have your James Hardie Plank Siding fabricated for improved performance
relative to the following climate variables:
- Temperature ranges and extremes, particularly very hot temperatures
- Ultraviolet light (UV-light) exposure amounts
- General humidity levels and seasonal extremes
- Local rainfall amounts (dry climates compared to wet climates)
- Local topographical factors that affect weather patterns
- Exposure to major severe weather patterns (e.g. hurricanes, tropical storms)
- Snowfall and freezing winter precipitation
- Hail impact—this product has a high hail/windborne debris impact resistance
ColorPlus® Technology Eliminates Painting, Provides Uniform Color and Lasts!
James Hardie Industries utilizes a proprietary paint application process, ColorPlus® Technology, for
finishing the siding. This eliminates color fading, scraping, priming and painting
that plague traditional siding options. This makes the product very resistant
to chipping or peeling, since the painting process utilizes a proprietary,
multi-step, baked-on painting process that provides multiple layers of paint
for truly uniform appearance. The painting process is far more durable than
even professional, field-applied, commercial painting methods and techniques.
James Hardie Plank Siding is an excellent
choice for homeowners wanting the look and feel of real wood
siding, without the hassles, risks, painting, and potential moisture
damage that is likely with inferior wood siding products. This makes James
Hardie products extremely versatile architecturally, and textures other than
wood grains are available.
In fact, James Hardie siding can be custom
fabricated to match almost any architectural style and color. You are unlikely
to find a larger color assortment than ColorPlus® Technology.
Hardie Board paint finish offers a uniform color, extreme resistance to fading,
and a paint finish that lasts!

Currently, James Hardie Industries offers a

manufacturing defects on the basic siding, and 10-15 years for trim products
and for soffits—ask your Amazing Siding customer representative about specific
warranty information covering this manufacturer’s products.
Professional Siding Installations per the Manufacturer’s Specifications
Amazing Siding installs James Hardie Plank
Siding per the manufacturer’s specifications and instructions every time. Many
siding installation companies in the U.S. offer Hardie Board, but,
surprisingly, very few of them install the product correctly. An independent
study of dozens of installations in Houston, Texas, actually found that 90% of
the homes fitted with James Hardie Plank Siding were improperly installed,
likely voiding any warranties! It is truly unfortunate that such an exceptional
siding product may not perform as designed because the siding was installed improperly…and
of course, this was at the homeowner’s expense!
Amazing Siding actually provides a
workmanship installation warranty and a customer satisfaction guarantee for all
of our installations of James Hardie Plank Siding and all of our other product
Amazing Siding employs professional
installers and we install the highest quality siding, insulation materials, and

HomeWrap—a house weatherization wrap with the industry’s highest perm rating). Additionally,
to ensure that your installation job is performed correctly the first time, we
fully inspect your exterior walls for any damage or rot. We remove any surface
boards, caulk and seal around windows, doors, eaves, overhangs, trim areas or
other difficult architectural or decorative elements, and use contractor-grade
nails and acrylic urethane sealants. We promise to take the care needed to
seal your entire exterior walls to prevent moisture intrusion into insulation
and exterior wood.
