Elite Preferred James Hardie® Siding Installer In Kansas City
James Hardie® Fiber Cement Siding Looks Amazing & Is Very Durable
James Hardie® siding is truly one of the most beautiful options available for replacement siding, and Johnson County Siding & Window Co. offers our Kansas City customers a full line of James Hardie fiber cement siding products. In fact, this brand of siding has factored into many of our award-winning exterior home remodels over the years. And it’s not just exterior remodeling judges who love the look of James Hardie siding. Homeowners, too, appreciate its deep, rich color and masterfully simulated wood textures—all without the drawbacks and maintenance requirements of wood siding.
Of course, it’s not just that James Hardie® Siding looks awesome that makes it such a popular choice. It’s also how durable it is. It resists warping and rotting and is five times thicker than vinyl, which makes it exceptionally resistant to hail damage.
According to Remodeling magazine’s “Cost vs. Value Report,” re-siding a home with fiber cement siding has ranked in the top five home upgrades for return on investment (ROI) for many years, so it’s a superior investment for your home.
The James Hardie brand is nationally known for its quality. In fact, in 2013, HardiePlank® Lap Siding earned the esteemed Good Housekeeping Seal.
Finally, this product comes with a real warranty. Instead of the pro-rated warranty you get with many siding products, James Hardie offers a 30 year NON-PRORATED warranty and a 15 year finish warranty covering both materials and labor on ColorPlus products.

James Hardie Siding Products in the Hands of Experts
At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we recognize that a re-side is one of the largest investments you’ll make in your home. Choosing concrete board siding from James Hardie siding products just makes sense-this fiber cement siding provides low maintenance without compromising curb appeal. In other words, it doesn’t sacrifice the beauty of wood. Moreover, James Hardie siding is noncombustible and approved for fire-rated construction, offers superior fade resistance and durability, and provides exceptional damage protection from woodpeckers, squirrels and other pests. No wonder millions of homeowners have already chosen James Hardie siding.
Another reason why so many homeowners gravitate toward Hardie siding is the huge array of product options. With so many siding styles to choose from, it’s easy to create the exact look you want for your home, and the experts at Johnson County Siding & Window Co. will be happy to help you do it. We offer consultations with an in-house exterior design professional, and we can also use visualization software to help you picture what various siding options will look like on your home before you make an investment.
Indeed, we’ve invested in high-tech HOVER 3D exterior home design software, a cutting-edge visualization tool that will let you create digital 3D renderings of your home clad in various siding colors and styles. All we have to do is upload a smartphone photo of your home, apply the siding and trim features you select, and you’ll be able to see your dream home come to life virtually before your eyes. Have you been wondering if board-and-batten vertical siding would look nice on the gable area over your garage? Would James Hardie siding shingles bring out the best in your home, or would you rather stick to traditional lap siding? What about applying contrasting colors, or perhaps adding some manufactured-stone veneer here and there to increase your home’s visual appeal?
We also offer and expertly install options like vibrant acrylic stucco and gorgeous manufactured-stone veneer. So if those elements are part of your exterior home makeover, you won’t have to seek out another siding installation contractor to complete your project.
James Hardie Siding Options
It’s natural for siding replacement customers to focus on the primary type of siding they’re picturing on their home. However, re-siding your home will require installation of many additional elements, including trim—which must complement your main siding selection—and HardieWrap® Weather Barrier, an unseen but necessary component of your exterior remodel.
Our house siding experts will be happy to explain all facets of your siding replacement project during a free, no-pressure consultation at your Kansas City home. In the meantime, here’s a quick look at the James Hardie siding options available for your exterior home remodel:
HardiePlank® Lap Siding
Do you love the look of traditional wood siding but dread the thought of repainting it every few years? James Hardie’s Select Cedarmill® option creates such a convincing simulation of genuine wood lap siding that you and your neighbors will be hard-pressed to tell the difference, and it’s easy to care for. This siding option is ideal for just about any residential architectural style, from stately colonials and cozy bungalows to more modern designs like ranch and contemporary.
In fact, if your tastes lean more toward a sleek, modern appearance, you may prefer James Hardie’s smooth lap siding option. Additionally, as part of its Dream Collection™ siding options, this manufacturer offers beaded styles which feature a rounded edge along the bottom of each plank. Opting for a beaded lap siding style is a great way to give your home a distinctive appearance that will have neighbors and passersby alike slowing down for a closer look.
Would you like to enhance the visual appeal of your home by accenting that gable over your front porch or garage? This siding option may be just the solution you’re looking for. The HardieShingle® style mimics the look of cedar shakes or shingles, and our design consultant can help you consider ways to use this option to create the take-notice appearance you have in mind for your home.
This is the manufacturer’s vertical siding option, also known as board and batten siding. This siding style evokes a warm and rustic feel, and can be an option for cladding the entire home. It also offers a clever way to accent certain features in the same way cedar shakes do.
Artisan® Collection Siding
Leave it to James Hardie to offer luxurious selections for the most discerning homeowner! With extra-thick boards and meticulous finishing touches, Artisan® siding will give your home the dramatic flair you’ve always wanted.
James Hardie trim options are designed to complement Hardie siding and therefore create the ideal finishing touches for your siding replacement project. These options provide the same beauty and low-maintenance durability as Hardie siding while framing your windows and protecting your porch columns and fascia.
Most people don’t pay too much attention to their soffit, which is the cladding that protects a home’s rafters under the roof’s edge. Soffit has an important role to play in preserving the structural integrity of your home, but it can also contribute a great deal to your home’s appearance, and Hardie’s soffit panel selections are designed to provide a sophisticated finishing touch.
James Hardie® Siding Color Options
One of the reasons why we partner with James Hardie is that this manufacturer shares our view that every house is unique, as is every homeowner’s vision of the perfect home exterior. The colors you choose will not only reflect your aesthetic tastes but also create visual impressions related to your home’s size, harmony with its surroundings, and enhancement of its architectural style. When you team up with Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we can use our design expertise to help you select the ideal colors to meet those goals, as well as comply with your homeowners’ association requirements, if applicable. And you’ll have more than 700 colors to choose from in finished Hardie siding, or you can opt for siding that’s primed to receive the paint color of your choosing.
Moreover, you won’t be limited by the old admonition that dark colors tend to fade prematurely. James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology includes multiple coats of the manufacturer’s proprietary, weather-resistant finish, which will allow you to indulge your heart’s desire—whatever shade that may be–without stressing out about whether it’s a practical choice.
James Hardie® Siding Cost
No matter what type of siding you have installed, the cost will be affected by a number of factors, including:
- The square footage of your home
- The siding materials you select, including insulation
- Whether your home is one story or two
- Your home’s layout and architectural features, including the presence of hard-to-access areas
- The removal and disposal of your old siding
Although Hardie siding is not the lowest-cost cladding available to homeowners, many experts agree that it provides an exceptional return on investment. The thickness of the siding panels and convincing mimicry of much-beloved wood siding, as well as the prospect of siding that will last for decades, have made it a worthwhile investment for millions of homeowners. For those who expect to stay put in their homes for the rest of their lives, the selection of Hardie siding translates into the only siding replacement job they’ll ever need. And for those who decide to put their homes on the market, the curb appeal of a home clad in beautiful Hardie siding can reap rewards as well. In fact, fiber cement siding outperforms almost all other types of siding year after year in Remodeling magazine’s annual “Cost vs. Value Report.” The only exception is stone veneer.
When you schedule a free consultation with one of our friendly and knowledgeable representatives, we’ll help you make choices that meet your remodeling goals and fit within your budget. We’ll also provide you with a realistic estimate for your James Hardie siding replacement project that’s tailored to your specific home.
