Cape Cod-style architecture popularized the use of shingles and cedar shakes for roofing and siding. This classic look is one of the defining staples of Cape Cod homes, but for all its aesthetic advantages, it’s also one of the toughest styles to maintain. Wooden structures are prone to moisture-related damage and rotting, and they are more susceptible to wear and tear than synthetic materials.
As an answer to this age-old problem, James Hardie® has released the HardieShingle® line of fiber cement siding materials that combines all the advantages of fiber cement and wood but without the weaknesses. Read on as the experts at Spicer Bros Construction, Inc. explain the benefits of this innovative siding material.
A Beauty Like No Other
These days, it’s rare for a roofing company to recommend cedar shakes as a roofing or siding material due to the difficulty of maintaining the material. HardieShingle can give your home that sought-after cedar look and feel but without the onerous maintenance requirements of actual cedar. These siding products come with a factory-applied primer that’s ready for a new coat of paint that will almost never need to be re-applied. Fiber cement shingle siding will not rot, peel, blister or crack even under extreme weather conditions. It accomplishes all this while still giving your home the classic look that only cedar can provide.
Styles and Patterns
HardieShingle siding is available in Straight Edge Panel boards as well as in Staggered, Individual 7” and Half-Round shingles. These are designed to give your exterior that distinct James Hardie appeal that’s hard to match.
