James Hardie fiber cement siding is engineered to stand up to the elements while standing out in your neighborhood. Kraz Construction is thrilled to be your trusted local installers for James Hardie siding products. By offering James Hardie products, we provide our customers the strongest brand in siding and James Hardie’s complete exterior solution.
James Hardie fiber cement siding offers more style varieties than vinyl with better quality. Due to James Hardie’s thickness, their fiber cement can beautifully resemble smooth stone, wood lap boards, cedar shingles, wood shake siding, logs and more. Vinyl siding can imitate many materials, but its thinness and lack of depth make imitating wood grain difficult and stone replicas appear less textured. Fiber cement is clearly the winner when it comes to style options.
James Hardie fiber cement siding also wins in the durability category. Resistant to mold, rot, animals and insects, their fiber cement siding holds up against the elements with ease. Wood burns. Vinyl melts. Cement doesn’t do either! James Hardie siding can be a part of a Class A fire rating because fiber cement can deter flames.
A high-quality brand like James Hardie can last for generations with minimal upkeep. Vinyl siding typically lasts around 20 years, while fiber cement siding can last up to 100 years when installed properly. As a member of James Hardie’s Contractor Alliance Program, Kraz Construction will put our years of experience installing fiber cement siding to work for you, ensuring you have minimal maintenance for as long as you own your home.
