James Hardie Zones
No matter where you live, now you can own a home with an exterior that's ideally suited for its local climate. The HardieZone System offers siding with specific performance attributes relative to the climate where your home is being built. So while other siding companies offer a one-siding-fits-all solution, James Hardie gives you the ability to get the right siding for your climate every time.
The Right Zone.
James Hardie based The HardieZone System on the eight individual climatic variables that primarily affect long-term performance of siding. Using these factors James Hardie arrived at ten distinct climatic zones. Though different, James Hardie found common variables in certain regions, allowing James Hardie to engineer the HZ5 product line for zones 1 through 5 and the HZ10 product line for zones 6 through 10.
James Hardie is the only siding manufacturer that maintains a research and development center devoted solely to fiber-cement technology. That means James Hardie is continuing to lead the siding industry in innovation. And considering that James Hardie is the fastest-growing residential siding manufacturer in North America, with products already on over 5.5 million homes in the United States and Canada, it's no surprise that any news about siding is always news about James Hardie.
Choosing house siding from James Hardie makes sense. It provides low maintenance, while resisting shrinking and swelling, so it holds paint much longer than wood composite siding or engineered wood. No wonder it's protecting over 5.5 million homes in North America alone.
