GIANT Siding and Windows prides ourselves on using only the best quality materials on the market. That’s why we recommend James Hardie siding for our projects. James Hardie fiber cement siding is the most popular choice for siding, not just in Westchester, but throughout the United States.
It’s simple. It’s intensely durable, it looks great and it holds up better than vinyl or wood to fire and storms.
The secret is in James Hardie’s fiber cement. Fiber cement is a composite material made up of sand, cement and cellulose fibers. The combination of these materials makes James Hardie siding weather storms, heat and time better than vinyl or wood.
Fiber cement siding has incredible longevity.
In fact, it comes with a 50 year, limited transferable warranty. It will never rot, and it’s resistant to insects. It can even handle salt spray from the ocean in areas closer to the water (..that is important for homes close to the sound in Fairfield CT).
James Hardie siding is versatile in appearance and can be made to look like almost any other siding material, whether that be lap boards, cedar shingles or wood shake. It comes in seemingly endless color options, and each color is accompanied by a 10 to 15-year warranty. Ask us for the specific details of the product we’ll be using on your home.
When it comes to fire resistance, Hardie board siding is the best. Because of the sand and cement materials, it’s fire-resistant. For example, in the unlikely event, your neighbor’s house was to catch fire, the fiber cement of your James Hardie siding would remain unharmed. Similarly, in the case of storms, James Hardie siding stands up to hail and hurricane better than any competitor on the market.
When comparing James Hardie to vinyl and wood, it’s obvious why we choose fiber cement siding every time. James Hardie siding is five times thicker than vinyl, which allows for deeper grooves and a more realistic wood-grain effect. The result looks higher quality, especially on historic homes.
Overall, James Hardie requires less maintenance and provides a better warranty than any other product currently on the market, which is why we recommend it to our customers in the Tri-County area. Our hot summers and freezing winters demand a siding product that is tough, durable and well, good looking.
