What is Hardie Board Siding?

Oct 10, 2018

James Hardie was the first company to develop fiber cement siding and trim in the 1980’s. Since then, James Hardie has invested over $100 million in research, development, and product advancement. It is no wonder Hardie Board siding, just like the company, stands the test of time.


James Hardie tests all siding and trim products against outdoor elements. This includes severe elements such as hurricanes, snowstorms, and fire, as well as more common elements including UV rays, rain, pests, and the changing of the seasons. James Hardie siding products come with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty, and trim products come with a 15-year, non-prorated warranty.
