Weather can be brutal on home exteriors, creating moisture damage, chips, and cracks in some siding products. When moisture penetrates siding, damage spreads quickly and creates costly and time-consuming repairs.
At Approved Contractor, we understand the frustration a faulty home exterior causes. That’s why we stay on the cutting edge of technology, supply you with the industry’s finest siding, and don’t cut corners when it comes to installation. This is one way we have consistently earned the top James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor status.

Fire-Resistant Siding for Southern California Homes
There are many undeniable perks to being a Southern California homeowner, but unfortunately, one of the unwelcome disadvantages of living in our beautiful state is the growing risk of fire damage. In a recent study, over 700,000 homes in Riverside County were currently at risk of wildfire damage—and this number is projected to increase rapidly over the next 30 years.
James Hardie fiber cement siding is one of most valuable investments homeowners in regions prone to wildfires, like Southern California, can make. This durable material won’t warp, melt, or combust when exposed to a direct flame, especially when compared to more vulnerable materials like wood or vinyl siding. Fiber cement also won’t break down quickly or add fuel to the fire, so if your exterior succumbs to flames, you and your family will have time to escape while the fire department arrives to extinguish the flames and protect your home’s interior.
Wildfires are unpredictable, and they can be devastating for homeowners who aren’t prepared with proper fire-resistant siding materials. It’s easy to see why protecting your home and precious mementos with James Hardie fiber cement siding is an invaluable investment!
There are two options when it comes to color for your James Hardie siding:

- Pre-primed siding—painted any color you choose after installation
