It’s a common misconception that it’s “hardy” plank – not its true name, “HardiePlank.” The confusion is easy to understand, and thankfully, not that much of a misnomer. In fact, the term “hardy” is actually quite accurate when referring to Hardieplank.
HardiePlank is weather resistant.
What’s the point of investing in Siding if it’s just going to break, chip and fall off the next time a strong wind comes around? Unlike Traditional Vinyl Siding, HardiePlank holds up to all the elements – hail, wind, rain, sleet and snow. It also resists rotting and warping, ensuring your investment lasts for many years to come.
It’s non-combustible and approved for fire-rated construction.
HardiePlank is resistant to high heat – a must-have in the glaring Texas sun. It’s also approved for fire-rated construction, something traditional vinyl siding can’t boast.
It’s durable and long-lasting.
Thanks to its thickness, weather-resistance and ability to not fade in the sun’s UV rays, HardiePlank is the longest lasting siding option on the market. It’s an investment that can improve your home from the inside out for as long as you own the property.
Its colors are flexible and adaptable, able to change with the times (or your preferences).
HardiePlank can be painted any color or hue you can imagine – and you can even alter it down the line if your tastes change. HardiePlank also comes in all sorts of shapes, styles and textures – just another way to get the unique look and feel you’re going through with your home.
It’s thick and strong.
Multiple times thicker and stronger than other siding options on the market, HardiePlank provides impact resistance you just can’t find anywhere. In a state where hail and hard rains are a regular occurrence, that can be a huge advantage in the long run.
