Is James Hardie® Siding Worth the Investment?

Mar 17, 2020

Is James Hardie® Siding Worth the Investment?Deciding whether any home upgrade is worthwhile is a lot like judging beauty—it’s largely in the eye of the beholder. However, if you’re thinking of replacing the siding of your home in the Kansas City metro area, it might be helpful to consider some of the reasons why the James Hardie® brand of fiber cement siding has been growing in popularity among homeowners. In fact, with well over 8 million homes sporting Hardie siding, it’s become North America’s most popular brand of house siding, according to statistics compiled by the manufacturer. Here are some reasons behind Hardie’s soaring popularity:

Excellent Return on Investment

You may not be thinking about selling your home, but it’s nice to know that Remodeling Magazine consistently rates fiber cement siding installation among the top five major home upgrades that recoup the most return on investment at resale. This provides evidence that you’ll be investing in long-lasting value and heightened curb appeal when you opt for Hardie siding for your home.

Uncanny Resemblance to Real Wood

As today’s homeowners have less and less time to devote to chores like scraping and repainting their wood siding every few years, many low-maintenance siding options have come on the market. Most siding manufacturers claim their products resemble wood because they know that homeowners still gravitate toward the look of genuine wood siding, even if they don’t want the hassles of intensive upkeep. Hardie siding stands apart, though, in producing a wood alternative that best captures the endearing woodgrain textures of yesteryear’s siding while also offering weather resistance that’s vastly superior to real wood.

Opportunities to Flex Your Artistic Flair

James Hardie offers one of the most extensive color palettes in the industry and provides practically endless possibilities for accenting your home’s features with different siding styles and trim. If this appeals to you and you’re considering re-siding your home, make sure you turn to Johnson County Siding & Window Co.

"I had Johnson County Siding & Window install siding, replace all the windows (except for one that had been replaced recently), install new front and back doors, replace a deck, and replace the front step's railing. The jobs were very well done and the crews were all friendly and professional. I would certainly do business with them again.”
