Standing the Test of Time: Why James Hardie Siding is Perfect for Washington Homes

Whether you call Seattle’s bustling city center or the Tri-Cities’ sunny landscapes home, Washington’s vibrant character comes with a price: temperamental weather. From relentless rain and wind in the west to scorching summers and occasional hail in the east, our homes face a constant battle against the elements. Choosing the right siding is crucial, and James Hardie fiber cement siding emerges as a champion in the fight for durability. Here at Rain City Exteriors, we’re proud to be certified James Hardie installers because their products are engineered to stand the test of time, Here’s why James Hardie siding is the perfect fit for your Washington home:

Built to Withstand Washington’s Diverse Climate:

No matter where you are in Washington, James Hardie siding has you covered:

  • Seattle’s Wet Weather: James Hardie siding boasts exceptional moisture resistance. Unlike wood siding, which is susceptible to rot and warping in damp climates, its fiber cement composition sheds water, preventing damage and ensuring a long lifespan for your siding. It also excels in Seattle’s freeze-thaw cycles, resisting cracking and maintaining structural integrity.
  • Tri-Cities’ Heat and Sun: Eastern Washington’s heat and sunshine can fade lesser siding materials. James Hardie siding utilizes Colorfast® technology to ensure vibrant, long-lasting colors that resist fading from UV rays, keeping your Tri-Cities home looking beautiful for years to come.

Wind Doesn’t Faze James Hardie Siding:

High winds are a reality throughout Washington. James Hardie siding provides unwavering protection:

Hail Strikes No Fear in James Hardie Siding:

Whether you face occasional hail in the Tri-Cities or Seattle’s brief but powerful storms, James Hardie siding offers an extra layer of defense:

  • Impact Resistance: James Hardie siding is significantly thicker than vinyl siding, a common choice in our region. This increased thickness provides superior impact resistance, minimizing the risk of hail damage throughout Washington.
  • Colorfast Technology: Vibrant colors are important, and James Hardie’s Colorfast® technology ensures they last. Even after hail impact, your siding will maintain its aesthetic appeal, eliminating the need for frequent repainting.

James Hardie siding offers additional benefits that enhance your Washington home’s overall resilience:

  • Fire Resistance: James Hardie siding is non-combustible, earning a Class A fire rating, the highest possible designation. This provides valuable peace of mind, no matter where you are in Washington.
  • Pest Resistance: Unlike wood siding, James Hardie siding is not susceptible to termites or other pests, eliminating the need for harsh chemical treatments and ensuring your siding remains pest-free for years to come.
