James Hardie Siding Superior to Vinyl or Wood


When Sacramento area homeowners consider giving their homes a much needed exterior makeover, they can do themselves a favor and consider James Hardie Fiber Cement siding products as the superior option to vinyl or wood siding. Hardie siding is quickly becoming the siding choice most requested by smart homeowners who want the best value as well as the most attractive results when upgrading their current siding material. Hardie siding offers Sacramento homeowners a number of key benefits.

Climate Control

Wind and heat are both a consideration in the Sacramento area when making a home siding choice, and Hardie siding is guaranteed to be Engineered for Climate®. Summer heat, winter frosts or Santa Ana winds will never melt, dislodge or destroy Hardie siding.


Hardie siding is superior to vinyl because it is five times thicker than traditional vinyl siding panels. This means that grooves are much deeper, allowing for an appearance that much more authentically resembles true wood grain. Especially for homeowners who live in one of Sacramento’s many historic properties, Hardie siding adds a rich looking exterior to their homes which is in tune with its history. And Hardie siding comes in a variety of ColorPlus Technology finishes to suit each homeowner’s individual needs.


All James Hardie siding products are guaranteed to be non-combustible, unlike vinyl which quickly melts in the event of fire, a major concern given California’s long-standing drought conditions. Hardie siding also resists cracking, warping, melting or sagging and is impervious to both rot and termites. Hardie siding’s fiber cement construction is also resistant to rain, moisture and freezing temperatures.


Hardie siding is a less costly home improvement investment than wood siding, and it cannot be destroyed by animals or insects. Because the panels easily resist absorbing water, these siding panels do not degrade due to mold and are a much better value for the money invested than either wood, wood composite (OSB) or vinyl siding.

When Hardie siding is installed by a reputable, licensed, experienced contractor, any Sacramento area home becomes better insulated and increases its value and appearance.
