James Hardie Siding Consistently Tops an Annual Survey
One of the reasons we know that installing James Hardie Siding is great for ROI is that it’s been documented consistently for most of this past decade, it has ranked number one in ROI compared to other types of home improvement jobs, according to a survey done by Remodeling Magazine.
From 2009 until 2015, siding replacement jobs using fiber cement siding, which is the material that James Hardie Siding is made from, had between 78 percent and 87 percent ROI. In each one of those years, installing fiber cement gave you a better ROI than installing foam backed vinyl replacement siding, vinyl window replacement, deck addition and roofing replacement. Installing fiber cement siding gave you the top ROI for seven straight years.
Unfortunately, Remodeling magazine no longer breaks down these comparisons by the type of siding used in the job, but siding replacement still ranked ahead of window or roof replacement and deck installation in the 2017 survey.
Hardie is Known for its Performance and Durability
James Hardie gives you an excellent ROI because of its performance and durability. Unlike wood siding, you don’t have to continually worry about repainting this siding. You also don’t have to worry about insects like termites destroying your siding. It is also very fire resistant. Although heat will transfer through the board, it will not ignite when exposed to direct flame.
Their products are also specifically engineered to stand up to all types of weather. It’s tested to better withstand heavy rains, hurricane winds, UV rays from the sun and other conditions. Other siding products such as vinyl and wood can crack or expand under extreme weather condition, while their siding continues to perform for years.
Replacing your siding will also enhance your home’s curb appeal and boost your property value. You can customize your siding with a variety of colors which will fit your home’s style and the area where you live. James Hardie Siding will make your home stand out.
