Learn About HardiePlank Siding

June 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

When it comes to the outside of your home, you have a lot of choices. There are different kinds of siding to choose from. One kind is fiber-cement siding. This is a composite building material. It's made from sand, cement, and cellulose. It is usually found as cladding on the outside of the house, but it can also be found in bathrooms as a tile underlay and lining on eaves and soffits. When it is used for that purpose, it comes as a sheet. When it is used for siding, it generally has the same appearance as wooden siding. It can also be used as fascia and barge boards in places that are prone to fires.

HardiePlank is siding made of fiber cement. There are a lot of very good reasons why you should choose to use siding like this on your home. One is that it can look like wooden clapboards, shakes, or shingles. No one has to know what kind of siding you have unless you tell them. There also is a wide variety of siding colors. You can choose what color you want or what color fits into your neighborhood, and have your home be that color, without having to worry about having to paint it.

Another very good reason to go with HardiePlank Siding is that is very durable. While no building material is truly fireproof, James Hardie Siding is fire resistant. If you live in a fire prone area, that means you are going to give your home the best possible chance to withstand any fire. No one can predict if their home is going to catch on fire, whether they live in a fire prone area or not, but house fires happen. Having fire resistant material helps to avoid that. This kind of siding can also stand up to the force of a hurricane. It has been certified by several agencies for use as building materials in hurricane and tornado prone areas, as well as fire prone areas.

If you are interested in James Hardie Siding, find a company in your area that does siding installation, and see if they carry this siding. You can check out the Hardie website to get more information about who might carry this siding in your area. Then you can get an appointment set up to see this siding for yourself, and see how well it will work for you.
