1 Answer


James Hardi products are cement based and therefore do not react to changes in temperature and humidity as other exterior products such as wood, vinyl, and aluminum do. They don't shrink or swell as the humidity changes. This will extend the life of the caulk job. They won't rot like wood will. Termites don't eat them and errant golf shots or baseball pitches won't dent or break the siding like they would with aluminum or vinyl.
The only drawback? Hardi sidings are more expensive than their counterparts.
