James Hardie siding is a great option for homeowners in Calgary. If you have been considering updating your vinyl siding or other exterior finish, you have likely heard of this high performance product.
Hubbard Roofing & Exteriors is proud to be part of the James Hardie Contractor Alliance. As a member of this program, we have exclusive access to advanced training opportunities on installation best practices to ensure your siding is installed to the highest standards.
Why James Hardie?
James Hardie is a fiber cement product that combines beauty with functionality. The exterior of your home is exposed to the elements all day, every day, so it is important to choose a product that will stand the test of time.
Hardie products are tested against worst-case scenarios: UV rays, snowstorms, hail and much more. Changes in seasons also challenge the exterior of your home (cracking in the cold, expanding and contracting with temperature fluctuations, etc.) and only James Hardie products are specially “Engineered for Climate®”.
Hardie Siding (also commonly known as Hardie Plank or Hardie Board in Calgary) is 5x thicker than vinyl siding which allows for deeper grooves resulting in a more authentic wood grain effect. Traditional siding may crack or warp but Hardie siding is noncombustible, water resistant, and built to resist the impact of hail.
James Hardie siding uses ColorPlus® Technology to create a vibrant, long lasting finish. The boards are baked with multiple coats of paint which creates a superior finish adhesion, UV resistance and color retention.
