James Hardie tests their products to better withstand worst-case scenarios such as extreme temperatures, tornadoes, snowstorms, hail and more and are therefore proven to be more durable than vinyl, which tends to crack over time and wood siding, which expand and contract with changes in moisture and humidity. James Hardie is designed to provide decades of durability with very low maintenance, while still maintaining its look. The cement gives the products their strength and the cellulose fiber helps bind the cement together.

Nothing damages your home like moisture. Moisture can cause sidings to swell and crack and lose paint leading to mold. Unlike vinyl and wood-based siding, James Hardie siding has very little contraction and expansion. James Hardie siding continuously ranks as the best in the industry for dimensional stability. The high dimensional stability is what protects your home as there is less chance of water intrusion due to loosening of individual siding panels or planks.
