Why Does Ridge Top Exteriors Use James Hardie?

Your home should make you feel joy when you view it from the outside. A great design with all of the parts coordinated simply feels great!
The last thing you need is stress about how your siding is operating. Soundness is vital. And that’s why James Hardie is chosen by so many people.
Only James Hardie® siding and trim are engineered to withstand the specific climate in which they are used. Feel confident knowing that you chose a product designed for beauty and durability.
It’s been praised by style-centric consumer magazines, contractor-focused trade publications and media that promote environmentally friendly building. That’s a universal vote of confidence in our products that you can feel confident about, too.
James Hardie Siding created the HardieZone® system to protect your projects, regardless of your region.
Siding is exposed to Mother Nature all day, every day, for years. Weather, water, time, fire and pests—all can lead to trouble. That’s why James Hardie’s hardworking products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the elements.
The things we value most should last the longest. That’s why we invented fiber cement and remain committed to continually raising the bar for the rest of the industry. For decades, James Hardie has made the most beautiful, durable fiber cement products on the market.
Moisture & Rot Resistance
Water can damage your home like nothing else can. It may be gradual, but it is relentless, and can lead to mold damage, swelling, cracking, and peeling paint. This is where James Hardie stands out from its competitors.
Wood-composite siding has a tendency to expand, buckle and crack when repeatedly exposed to precipitation.
James Hardie products are specifically engineered to withstand damage from moisture and rot, and will hold their own, come rain or strong winds.
- Curated Color Pallette
- Fade Resistance
- Consistent Application
ColorPlus® Technology is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, so your color will stay vibrant for longer.
One thing’s for sure: As the years go on, we all show signs of aging.
But since James Hardie products are created to stand up to the demands of your specific climate, they will look great for years, saving you time and money.
With the James Hardie’s added benefit of ColorPlus® Technology—a baked-on color option that resists fading—your siding will look great without excessive maintenance.
In case of a fire, you want to know that walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire feasts on wood, and it melts vinyl almost instantly. But James Hardie siding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.
Because James Hardie products are non-combustible, many insurance companies offer a discount. We recommend sharing fiber-cement siding’s fire-resistance qualities with your insurance carrier.
Unsusceptible to Pests
Mother Nature’s creatures can wreak havoc on some types of siding. Because it’s wood, OSB or wood-composite siding can be pecked by birds and devoured by insects.
James Hardie fiber cement siding offers little appeal to critters and won’t be eaten by termites. So you can focus on the animals in your life that actually make you happy.
Be Ready for Anything Weather Withstanding
Severe weather will test the strength of your home. Hurricanes, hail and blizzards hit hard and fast. Extreme droughts and relentless heat can go on and on. Your choice of siding, along with proper installation, can help your home stand up to these unpredictable elements.
James Hardie fiber cement siding helps resist the impact of hail and windblown debris and is designed to perform in extreme heat and cold.
Bad weather can strike at any time. So we test our products to better withstand worst-case scenarios: hurricanes, UV rays, snowstorms, and more. But it’s not only extremes that break down siding—the change of seasons does a number on materials such as vinyl (which may crack in the cold) and wood products (which expand and contract with changes in moisture and humidity). Only James Hardie products are Engineered for Climate®.
VALUE OF A LIFETIME
Fiber cement costs less than wood, doesn’t attract pests, and resists water absorption to help protect against mold, swelling and cracking—buying you more mileage for your dollar.
James Hardie is the only siding company that engineers siding and trim products for specific climates, ensuring that you get the best performance for your region.
Baked-on ColorPlus® Technology has greater resistance to fading, chipping and cracking, meaning less maintenance for you.
Since fiber cement siding (unlike vinyl) is non-combustible and hail-damage resistant, it can sometimes help reduce home insurance premiums. Ask your agent.
