What is James Hardie Siding?
Solid State Construction provides and recommends James Hardie fiber cement siding throughout Massachusetts. But, what exactly is this product?
Made primarily from Portland cement and cellulose fiber, it is virtually indistinguishable from wood siding once it is installed and finished, yet requires far lower maintenance than wood siding. It’s like getting the best of both worlds.
Fiber cement will not rot, crack, or split like wood siding. It also has the ability to hold paint up to 3 times longer than wood, requiring far less maintenance. Yet when it is finished, it is very difficult to distinguish from wood siding.
A great complement to fiber cement siding is cellular PVC trim. Cellular PVC also will not rot, crack, or split and if coated correctly will hold paint very well. Both fiber cement and cellular PVC trim present a set of unique installation challenges not present with wood siding. It is very important that these products are installed by a properly qualified crew.
