In an increasingly competitive economy, it is becoming more common to match form with function, the synergy of which can lead to a beautiful design. What we have found through our years of working with James Hardie products is that their products are durable, are designed well, and are low-maintenance for homeowner's. That is what Hardie offers, which is why we use it.
A hallmark of Hardie siding is their durability, which is why Five Star uses it. Siding is exposed to inclement weather all four seasons, all hours of the day, for years. Whether it is ice, rain, snow, heat or humidity, you want a cladding (industry term for siding) that can stand up to the rigors of mother nature.
This is why Five Star uses Hardie siding for the homes we work with. When installed properly, Hardie significantly outperforms other claddings. Fiber cement has a plethora of pro's in it's corner which include:
- Moisture & Rot Resistance
- Color lasts season to season
- Climate specific design allows Hardie to withstand the heat, humidity and temperature fluctuations in Southeastern PA
- Naturally insusceptible to pests and insects
Hardie is engineered above and beyond what most industry experts would consider as an acceptable cladding. Fiber cement is extremely durable, but it offers another function that most do not consider when purchasing their Hardie siding: design.
Technological advancements happen quite rapidly these days in the field of construction. It seems as if most remediation's are moving away from traditional designs, and are replacing them with newer, more modern architecture which can look bizarre to those accustomed to more traditional structures.
Hardie allows you to do either. You can opt for a more traditional design of your home, while replacing aged siding with a climate engineered cladding, or you can opt for an all new look with an updated, and unique design, all while enjoying the benefits of this cladding.
Everything about Hardie siding is designed with the consumer in mind. One of the biggest attributes to having your home clad in Hardie is the fact that you will not need to repaint for years (if at all) over the lifetime of the project. Hardie's revolutionary ColorPlus technology painting resists fading, has a simple selection of colors to choose from, and has a consistent coating applied to the cladding.
Hardie also does not require cleanings like vinyl and other cladding. You simply spray the siding with a hose, and voila! The dirt and grime is gone! Hardie is so sure of their ColorPlus painting, that they offer a 15-year limited warranty covers paint and labor, protecting against peeling, cracking, and chipping.
