The new year is upon us and thoughts turn to projects that were thought about but not done in 2019. Bring in the new year by taking out the old and bringing in the new on your building. Need more information on current products that will bring you into the new decade with style and substance?
The siding of the old had many issues that caused damage and rot to thrive. The new siding is made of concrete and is extremely durable and long lasting. When a product is exterior, it is exposed to the weather year round, rain, sleet, snow and ice, not to mention the unrelenting sun of summer. Not only does it need to withstand the weather, it has to be able to stand up to pests such s termites and carpenter bees. James Hardie’s products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements.
Siding is your main protection against the elements, why not replace or repair that worn-out siding with a product that will stand the test of time with a longer life span?
While replacing the siding it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the fascia and soffit during the process. What is a fascia & soffit?The exterior soffit is located beneath the rafter tails, while the fascia is the exposed horizontal board you see at the end of the rafters that presents a visual interest and finished element along the eave area and offers protection by keeping out pests like bats, birds and squirrels or hides attic ventilation.
The traditional materials used were aluminum and wood but new materials include UPVC and vinyl because they offer a low- maintenance option. Hardie siding offers trim boards that are the final touch that completes your home’s design. Accentuate corners, columns, fascia, doors, windows and more with HardieTrim® boards.
Of course, the final step is to choose a durable paint that will withstand the elements. All James Hardie® siding and trim products are available primed and ready for field painting.
