James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding Benefits 

James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding comes in a wide range of colors and styles that resemble cedar siding, wood siding, conventional siding materials, notably stucco, cedar shingles, and wood clapboards. See all James Hardie siding colors here.

It’s primarily made from cement, sand, and wood fiber for strength (often a recycled wood-fiber waste product), a combination that results in an extremely durable material.

James Hardie Fiber cement siding typically costs a bit more than vinyl siding. This is because in most cases the existing siding needs to be removed if the current siding being installed over is not flat. Hardie board siding still costs less than stucco, though. It also often outlasts its competitors by decades or more.

Fiber cement resists many elements of mother nature including:

Fire Resistant
