Going Green With James Hardie Siding Products

Mar 22, 2019

How can James Hardie help you go green in your Merriam home?

While wood siding was a popular choice once upon a time, these days, it simply doesn’t live up to the competition — especially when it comes to going green. Wood siding is natural, of course, but without heavy maintenance and staining, it easily swells, warps, and rots, causing issues with your home’s insulation. In doing so, it can create air leaks and become a major problem for your home’s energy usage. If your goal is truly to go green, wood siding doesn’t pay off in the long run.

So, what’s the alternative? Vinyl has some thermal resistance but isn’t ideal when it comes to energy savings. James Hardie siding, however, is an excellent alternative to wood that helps you save money, as well as energy.

The Style of Wood With Better Performance

One thing that people cling to when it comes to wood siding, despite recent advances in competing siding, is the look. The look and texture of wood are simply classic and it’s a style that’s difficult to beat. However, with James Hardie siding, you can have the look of wood, even though the siding performs much better than wood. James Hardie siding is made with fiber cement and it can mimic the look and even texture of wood. What it doesn’t mimic, however, is the tendency of wood to warp and rot under the pressure of the elements. Thus, you can go green with James Hardie products without losing your style.

Exceptional Durability

James Hardie siding holds up under the elements far longer than wood siding with practically no maintenance and a 15-year warranty on the paint color. However, it’s not only wood that it tends to beat out. James Hardie siding is also five times thicker than vinyl so that it resists even heavy storm damage like hail. Without warping or rotting, it’s better able to protect your in-wall insulation and prevent air leakage or heat loss, so your energy usage (and your energy bills) stay low.

Nationally Renowned

The quality of James Hardie products, like HardiePlank® Lap Siding, is no secret. It’s touted by many home exterior experts for both its durability and style. In 2013, it was even awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal, a highly esteemed recognition that’s been in existence for over 100 years. James Hardie products come with a 30-year warranty and a 15-year finish warranty, non-prorated, because James Hardie — and the contractors who work with James Hardie — know they can stand by these products. Their energy efficiency is as tight as the rest of their craftsmanship.

"Updated the outside of our home by replacing our 1970/1980s brick with a more modern dry stack stone. A very professional and trustworthy company. We couldn’t be happier with the work that was done. They also inspected our James Hardy Siding while they were here, and after finding little to no repairs needed, referred us to another great company for exterior painting.”

"We LOVE our windows!! Justin was so informative and helpful through the whole process from helping us decide which windows were best for our house to follow up after they were installed. The installers were amazing! I thought in the middle of summer, my house would be so hot while the windows were being replaced. But they did such an effecient, awesome job I didn't really notice any change in the temperature in the house. But I did notice a big difference once they were installed in keeping the heat out. Wow!! Can't wait to get all of our windows replaced.”
