Hardie board is a premier vinyl siding made of cement and wood fibers. This is sold as panels, with some models featuring a textured exterior for added detail and appeal.Hardie board has several benefits including:
- Energy efficiency:
Hardie board will keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It resists heat transfer through the material, protecting your home from wear and tear caused by extreme weathers.
- Protection from water damage:
Hardie boards "breathe," allowing moisture to escape through pores at the surface while blocking outside air from seeping inside. Anyone who has ever had problems with peeling paint or mildew growth knows how important this feature is.
Hardie board is durable and able to withstand high winds and heavy rains.
With Hardie boards, it is essential to have the right tools for the job, including a good quality exterior caulk, sealant tape, aluminum corner beads, roofing nails (or equivalent), roof cement (or equivalent) and flashings/drip edge if necessary.
