The James Hardie Difference

James Hardie invented fiber cement, so they know how to set the industry standard for exceptional siding. With millions of installations, they continue to lead the industry in premium, high-performance exterior siding. Hardie products deliver uncompromising durability and finish quality for a beautiful, lower maintenance exterior. Below you can see the what makes the Hardie difference:


Harsh weather, fluctuating temperatures, water, time, fire and pests— all cause your siding to have problems. But not with James Hardie siding, it is engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements.


Water can damage in a way that nothing else can; causing mold, swelling, cracking, and color separation. James Hardie products are specially engineered to withstand damage from moisture and rot and will hold their own against rain, sleet, or snow.


Nobody likes unwanted critters living in their space, and termites especially can wreak havoc on your home. With James Hardie fiber cement siding, critters and termites see no appeal and will gladly take shelter elsewhere, which gives you time to focus on the animal you want to look at.


James Hardie Siding will withstand time, unlike any other siding. It will not show signs of age like other siding products. This siding will not wear down throughout the year because it is designed for our specific climate. Hardie siding can stand up to the demands of hail, wind, and debris for years, which will save you time and money.


Fire is one of the most terrifying and destructive things that can happen to your home, but with James Hardie siding, you can feel safe knowing that the walls of your home will protect you while your family seeks safety. When exposed to fire, vinyl will melt almost instantly, and wood is a direct fuel. But Hardie siding will not contribute to the fire or ignite when exposed to a direct flame.

Because James Hardie products are non-combustible, many insurance companies offer a discount. We recommend sharing your plan to purchase Hardie siding with your insurance carrier, to see if any discounts could apply to your homeowner’s policy.

Siding Designed for Missouri Weather

Living in Missouri can test the strength of your home, but with James Hardie fiber cement siding, you will not have to worry about failing that test. James Hardie is the only siding in the industry with products engineered for different climates. In Missouri, we are allocated the HardieZone 5 products; meaning this siding is designed to withstand all of Missouri’s harsh weather, from hail and wind to blizzards. With Hardie siding, your home can resist the impact of hail and windblown debris.
