In May 2013, James Hardie announced in a press release that they were awarded a highly sought-after mark of quality, the Good Housekeeping Seal, which is granted after a product’s rigorous evaluation by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute and their staff of scientists, engineers, nutritionists and researchers.

At CRS Exteriors, we are proud to offer homeowners siding created by such a highly respected company and the global leader in fiber cement technology and is why we always love to share, or boast about its excellent strength, beauty and durability (all of which we believe were impressive qualities that led to the Good Housekeeping Seal of approval). James Hardie’s line of building products include fiber cement siding, trim and accessories, and is highly used and respected by builders, contractors, homeowners and architects. As the most popular siding brand in North America, James Hardie is found on over 5.5 million homes and is a world leader in fiber cement siding (and backerboard). What we (and the Good Housekeeping Research Institute) really love is that James Hardie Building Products are committed to the highest levels of product quality and always have the consumer’s needs and interests in mind.

The consumer’s interests are what drive the James Hardie company to spends $20 million a year in research and development on raw materials and substates in an effort to help them make sure every siding product performs in every environment they put them in. With James Hardie’s research-backed products, you can be confident that no matter what look, color or texture you choose, your siding will be Engineered For Climate®, fire resistant, and when their proprietary ColorPlus® Technology is applied, 30% more fade resistant for color that lasts 2x longer than field-applied paint. James Hardie even has siding with specific performance attributes relative to the climate where the product will be used…it’s called the HardieZone® system and will be the feature of our next blog post.

We love and believe in James Hardie siding products and we know they do too because James Hardie offers an unheard of 30-year, non-prorated, transferrable, limited warranty on its siding products. If you’re looking for a worry-free siding product that’s low maintenance, has a full range of beautiful design attributes, and extreme durability for your climate, make sure you take a look at James Hardie fiber-cement siding. Let us know if we can give you any more information about exterior siding products and James Hardie siding.
