James Hardie® Siding Installation Westchester County
Fiber Cement Siding: Why It’s so Popular in Westchester – The exterior of your home is the first thing visitors will see. It’s also the protective layer that will — in theory — keep your home safe and dry for years to come.
However, some siding types are sub-par, leaving your home susceptible to damage from fire, pests, and humidity.
When it comes to your Westchester County home, you want something suited to the climate and your needs. Our local team prefers fiber cement siding: a popular choice thanks to its durability, simplicity, and appearance.
The James Hardie siding collection is made of non-combustible material. This means that, should the worst come to pass, the siding won’t ignite or serve as fuel for a house fire.
Westchester County is no stranger to “weather”. Whether you’re on the coast of the Long Island Sound in Pelham, Rye, Mamaroneck or Larchmont or nestled in closer to the Hudson River; in one of the picturesque River Towns… James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding will keep your home warm and dry for years to come and through all four seasons.
Fiber cement siding is unaffected by salt air and humidity. It also won’t become brittle during any New York cold snap.
James Hardie Siding is specifically engineered for our climate.
Made to withstand the freeze-thaw cycles that we experience along with 100-degree temperature swings on an annual basis. With summer days in the 100-degree range and winter nights in the sub-zero range. Westchester County home’s get put through the wringer. Factor in climate change and the more severe temperature swings it will bring with it, and you’ll see why we advise our clients to only consider wrapping their houses in a siding that’s fit for the challenge.
We already see 40-degree temperature swings within 24 hours on a reasonably consistent basis through the winter seasons. One day is 60 and raining and the next is single digits, and then back again.
James Hardie is designed to withstand the most extreme swings, with minimal expansion and contraction in the product. This is where the James Hardie Fiber Cement area will strongly outperform even the highest-rated vinyl products.
James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding: Attractive to Neighbors — Unattractive to Pests
Critters love to chew on the siding. Fortunately, fiber cement — which is made from cement, sand, water, and fiber — isn’t what anyone would consider “tasty.” Termites and woodpeckers won’t bother with it, and you won’t have to worry about hungry squirrels chipping away pieces of your precious home.
