Why Choose HardiePlank Lap Siding?
It’s no secret that traditional exterior cladding materials made from wood, vinyl or OSB can take a beating from the elements as they age. Rot, mold and mildew will take its toll on lap siding materials made from substandard materials. Unlike cementious fiber-based siding products, these siding materials require constant maintenance and are easily susceptible to insect and fire damages. That’s why the majority of newly installed lap siding materials are made from masonry products to ensure extended lifespans, less maintenance and prevent insect or fire damages to the exterior of the home.
Even though James Hardie invented the original fiber cement siding materials over 30 years ago, James Hardie products today incorporate state of the art production methods and materials, putting HardiePlank Lap Siding and their other fine products in a class all their own.
With awards and accolades by the handful from such outstanding institutes and publications such as Good Housekeeping, the National Association of the Remolding Industry and the NAHB National Green Building Program, it’s not difficult to see why products like HardiePlank Lap Siding Select Cedarmill are so commonly used by the premier contractors and remodelers throughout North America.

While durability, strength, and low maintenance are high priorities when it comes to protecting the exterior of your home, it’s certainly not the most important reason for choosing a HardiePlank Lap Siding product.
