When you are building a new home, or even renovating an older one, many things must be considered and planned out thoroughly. One of the many aspects is what to do with exterior walls. A house needs more protection than just a roof, but the walls should certainly look better than the shingles on the roof. Hardie Plank siding is designed to look good while offering maximum protection. Here are some reasons for you to consider the option of Hardie Plank siding when building or renovating a home.
- Custom Functionality
Unlike any other siding company today, Hardie Plank materials are manufactured to function properly in your particular climate. HardieZoneTM is a program that adjusts for 10 unique climate zones. This means that whatever your roofer or contractor installs will be customized to function best in Naperville or Chicago, not Atlanta or Phoenix.
Hardie Plank materials are, quite appropriately, some of the hardiest materials on the market. Your Hardie siding will last a lifetime. It won’t rot like wood, become brittle like vinyl, or corrode like aluminum. Hardie’s 50 year warranty will be hard to match anywhere in the industry.
Hardie Plank siding comes in countless colors, textures, and widths. This means that you can customize the look of your walls to a degree that is essentially unheard of in the siding business. There are so many options that it is quite likely that you could match some variety of Hardie Plank to siding that has been around for decades.
