When siding gets old, worn out or damaged, it leaves your home vulnerable to the elements. Water penetration leads to costly hassles such as pest infestation, wood rot, and the unhealthy presence of mold. If your siding has been compromised and it’s time for siding replacement, resist the urge to DIY in order to get the best long-term performance out of your home siding.
The two primary factors that directly impact the long-term results of your siding include your choice in siding material and siding contractor.

Vinyl siding melts in the heat, and wood siding fuels a fire. James Hardie siding won’t contribute to a fire or warp in the heat due to its makeup.
ColorPlus® Technology resists fading, chipping and cracking and offers homeowners beautiful selections from which to choose. The James Hardie convenient online Home Color Tool allows you to try color on your home so you can decide what brings out the best in your abode.

The Benefits of Hiring James Hardie Certified Installers
When California homeowners attempt to replace siding as a DIY project, it can result in poor siding performance for the lifetime of the siding and thwart the benefits of a good warranty.
Most homeowners aren’t comfortable trying to install siding themselves. They lack the proper tools, appropriate protection, knowledge, training, and experience. If you try to install it yourself, your lack of experience, the heavy weight of fiber cement siding, and unchartered territory could create long-term problems for your siding product. The risks simply don’t outweigh the benefits.
Sidestep the time-consuming trouble of trying to install your siding yourself. Instead, choose a company that holds the James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor status, and complies with the James Hardie requirements, ensuring your 30-year siding warranty will be honored. Get the return on investment (ROI) you desire by hiring a James Hardie Elite Preferred contractor rather than trying to do it yourself.
A warranty that spans decades has its benefits! With the Hardie warranty, if some aspect of your siding becomes faulty, your warranty is in place because your siding was installed by a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor. Your home’s value will increase because it’s protected by the number one siding product in America. If it was installed by James Hardie certified installers, you’ll get all the long-term benefits that come with perfect installation: energy efficiency, low maintenance, and lasting durability.
Appreciate the sense of confidence you feel knowing your siding was installed with rigorous installation procedures and manufacturer’s best practices by your Elite Preferred Contractor—and enjoy your siding’s superb performance for decades.
When you hire a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor to install you siding, you avoid damage, deteriorating performance, and a voided warranty. Skip the hassle of hiring just any contractor, and know your siding is installed properly by using highly trained James Hardie contractors.
