HardiePlank® lap siding is one of the best James Hardie® products, praised for its durable composite build and beautiful color finish, which is designed never to fade. The Carpenter’s Touch, a James Hardie siding contractor, discusses the benefits of HardiePlank lap siding.
Resistant to the Elements
HardiePlank lap siding is your best defense against the elements. It will protect your walls from rot, decay, vermin and even moisture buildup while requiring little to no maintenance. HardiePlank is also non-combustible unlike other siding products, especially those made of wood.
Speaking of wood, nothing beats installing classic lap siding. Still, its vulnerability to water, termites and fire makes it incompatible with the safety requirements of modern homes. HardiePlank lap siding makes that possible as their authentic wood-like feel makes it as good the real deal without wood’s weaknesses.
Each HardiePlank siding is treated with a coat of ColorPlus®, which makes the siding look more vibrant. It is also coated with a thick paint finish, 50% more than the usual, and then cured in a controlled environment. This bonds the color to the material itself, making the paint resistant to peeling, chipping, cracking and fading. Plus, with a wide selection of color options available, you can have any color and design you want that best fits your home’s aesthetic.
Doesn’t Expand or Contract
One of the drawbacks of vinyl is it expands and contracts, especially with temperature changes. That’s why, as a vinyl siding contractor, we’re proud to say that HardiePlank lap siding doesn’t suffer from these effects at all. With its dimensionally stable frame, you can expect a HardiePlank product to look as fresh as the day it was installed.
