Why James Hardie Siding Products
 

James Hardie vs. Wood Siding

Moisture can promote rot. So rain, snow and humidity are all hazardous to your home if you have wood siding. Moisture can also have an adverse effect on a home with vinyl siding. Since it's not tightly nailed to your home, but rather hung loosely to allow for expansion and contraction, moisture can build behind panels potentially penetrating the structure of your home.
