What could be more striking than the red shutters set against the white HardiePlank siding at the VISION House in Orlando, Florida? It could be the science behind the siding.
James Hardie created the HardieZone System for their siding because we don't all live in the same climates. The environmental stresses that a homeowner in Seattle may face differs from what a homeowner in Florida will face. The HardieZone System is based on eight individual climatic variables which include temperature range, UV, humidity, rainfall, snow, hail, hurricane, and topographical factors.
James Hardie's Zero to Landfill project is aimed at reducing the amount of raw materials waste sent to landfills by half. Their manufacturing processes focus on quality, first-run materials. Raw materials are extracted and processed near each of their manufacturing facilities to help reduce transportation costs and their ColorPlus technology bakes on paint in the factory delivering a quality, consistent finish and eliminating VOCs at the job site.
HardiePlank siding comes in a variety of looks and textures as well as a 30-year nonprorated, transferrable, limited warranty.
