Remodeling magazine is the industry’s leading home improvement magazine.  Since 1988, Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report has compared construction costs for common remodeling projects with the value they add to a home at resale in the current real estate market.  The results— upscale siding projects using fiber-cement return the highest value at resale.

Remodeling Magazine has conducted this study since 1988 and is a trusted source among building and construction professionals. 2005 was the first year they evaluated fiber-cement siding replacement, and its debut at the top of the list demonstrates its value to builders and homeowners.

Say goodbye to the days of one-siding-fits-all.  James Hardie now gives you the ability to put the optimum siding on a home regardless of your location.

The HardieZone System is based on the eight individual climatic variables that primarily affect long-term performance of siding.  Using these factors they arrived at ten distinct climatic zones.  Though different, they found common variables in certain regions, allowing them to engineer the HZ5™ product line for zones 1 through 5 and the HZ10™ product line for zones 6 through 10.
