Your siding plays an important role in shielding your home against the harmful elements while preserving its pristine beauty. That said, if it is already past its prime, you’ll need to replace it with a more efficient and weather-resistant product. As your trusted siding contractor, Spicer Bros. Construction recommends James Hardie® fiber cement siding.

HardieZone® System Work

James Hardie siding is designed with the HardieZone® system to meet the demands of your local climate. Let us discuss how this works:

The HardieZone System

This cutting-edge system is based on the eight distinctive climatic variables that affect the long-term performance of siding. These include rain, snow, hurricanes, hail, temperature range, humidity, UV exposure, and topographical factors. Upon evaluating these factors, 10 distinct climate zones were found in certain regions, which served as the foundation of the HZ5® series for zones 1 to 5 and the HZ10® series for zones 6 to 10.

The Difference Between HZ5 and HZ10

The HZ5 siding is designed to withstand damage from ice, snow, and freezing temperatures. To maintain a healthy balance of durability and beauty, its surface is engineered for superior moisture resistance and paint adhesion. It will also remain dimensionally stable during harsh weather conditions.

Meanwhile, the HZ10 siding is formulated for areas where humid heat, salty sea air, and hurricane-force winds are present. It withstands swelling, splitting, cracking, and rotting, making it impervious to tropical storms. It also prevents flames from spreading, which is essential in minimizing damage against wildfires.

In addition to its climate-specific attributes, it comes in a variety of styles and colors to amp up your curb appeal. This allows you to enjoy a stronger yet lovelier home that is sure to last for several years. Regardless of where you live, we have the perfect James Hardie siding for your home.
