Hoffman Weber installs James Hardie fiber cement siding.
James Hardie is the oldest and most respected manufacturer of fiber cement siding. We trust it will perform as advertised. It has been installed on more than 8 million homes.
James Hardie siding is available in lap, shingle and vertical panels. Lap siding comes in smooth or woodgrain (Cedarmill) and Beaded Cedarmill (woodgrain with a radiused detail along the lower edge of each plank). Shingles are available in staggered and straight edge panels. Vertical panels come in Cedarmill (woodgrain), stucco, Sierra 8 (woodgrain with vertical grooves to resemble T1-11 plywood), and smooth.
The installed price for James Hardie siding typically is comparable to engineered wood siding, more expensive than vinyl siding and less expensive than brick or synthetic stucco.
James Hardie siding is made in Illinois, Texas, Florida, and New Mexico. Siding installed in Minnesota typically comes from the plant in Peru, IL.
Hardie siding is primed with a 100 percent acrylic primer at the factory. ColorPlus pre-finishing is said to last three to four times longer than on-site paint.
Hardie siding comes pre-primed or finished in any of 23 standard colors, including dark, neutral, warm, cool, light and fresh palettes.
Yes. All Hardie siding products are spray primed on all sides at the factory. Cut edges are sealed during installation.
Hardie siding is installed with corrosion-resistant galvanized nails.
Hardie siding may be nailed to plywood or OSB sheathing or to properly braced (single-wall-construction) wood or steel framing.
Hardie makes a full line of trim for use at soffits, corners, windows, and doors. It also is compatible with wood, engineered wood, coated aluminum, and vinyl trim products.
James Hardie siding is durable and resists damage from insects, woodpeckers, and hail.
The wood fibers reinforce the panels and make them lighter and less brittle. The cement provides resistance to impact, insects, woodpeckers, and fire. It is Class-A fire rated. Early fiber cement products contained asbestos fibers. Cellulose fibers are used now.
No. Hardie siding is impervious to insect damage.
James Hardie siding is impact resistant.
Hardie siding is warrantied against deteriorating when properly installed, primed, finished and maintained. This includes sealing ends cut on the job site and maintaining proper clearances above the landscape, paving, and decking.
James Hardie siding has a 30-year limited lifetime warranty. Prefinished siding carries a 15-year warranty.
You should have no trouble matching the color, texture or profile of your James Hardie product.
James Hardie siding may be installed at any temperature but it should be stored in a warm, protected area so it does not become overly brittle.
In construction, windows are installed before the siding. While replacement windows can be installed after construction, it is preferable to replace windows before installing the new siding for maximum sealing.
James Hardie recommends a mild soap solution and a soft brush to clean siding. It recommends against power washing.
Siding will be cut outdoors using power tools equipped with dust collection.
