While Siding & More offers high-quality vinyl siding that endures the elements and maintains your home’s beauty for years to come, we also offer a step up in durability with our James Hardie fiber cement siding. If you’re looking for color, versatility, texture, and siding that is both fire and insect resistant, Hardie Board Siding is what you’re looking for.
Sleek, modern and five times thicker than vinyl siding, Hardie Board is created from a mixture of cellulose material and cement. While there is cellulose material mixed in, it’s not enough to feed insects and vermin. This technologically-advanced mixture of organic material and cement in exterior siding is what keeps the pests away.
Additionally, while fiber cement siding is not fireproof, Hardie Board has an increased ability to resist fires due to the cement composition. The non-combustible material of Hardie Board does not ignite fires nor does it add fuel to the fire, which buys more time to reach safety in hazardous conditions.

Texas remains a challenging state for home exteriors due to the dry and arid climates to the west and hot and muggy climates to the east. Fiber cement siding is proven to resist the most extreme conditions long-term in North America. Dallas, Texas is in HardieZone 10 (HZ10). Because of the weather conditions, Hardie Board was created to prevent swelling, cracking, splitting or rotting.
Not only are the colors natural-looking and beautiful, but they are also baked on for the longest-lasting lifetime when you invest in
ColorPlus® Technology. Another option is to get them fully primed and ready for any color of your choice. Fade-resistant colors along with high-quality materials enhance the moisture protection you need in Dallas, Texas. Sleek, modern, durable and advanced in both style and functionality, Hardie Board comes in Cedarmill, which mimics real wood, or in Smooth. This high-performance canvas is 8 millimeters thick and comes with a real-wood look.
Natural beauty and siding come together in Hardie Board. For more information on James Hardie products for your home, call Siding & More
