A lot of benefits come with replacing your old siding, such as improved insulation, curb appeal and protection against the element. When planning your siding replacement project, among the most important things to consider is your location. You need to choose a product that works well with your local climate to ensure your investment lasts.
Fortunately, James Hardie® has created siding products that are ideal for every climate. Learn more about the HardieZone® System here.
What Is the Hardiezone® System?
James Hardie siding products are Engineered for Climate®. The HardieZone System provides siding with certain performance attributes relative to the climate where the product will be used. Because of this feature, James Hardie works well no matter your climate or location.
The HardieZone System is based on eight individual climatic variables that have long-term effects on the siding’s performance. James Hardie was able to arrive at 10 distinct climatic zones through these factors. Using the common variables in certain regions, it was able to engineer the HZ5® product lines for zones 1 through 5 and HZ10® product line for zones 6 through 10.
HZ5® vs. HZ10®
If you live in a climate with freezing temperatures, snow and ice, the HZ5 product line is for you. The surface of these products is engineered for higher performance, giving them excellent paint adhesion and moisture resistance. It also features an added drip edge for improved water management. To make the most of these benefits, be sure to hire a skilled siding installer like Hill Roofing Corporation.
Those who are located in places with blistering sun, hurricane-force winds and heavy rains would benefit from the HZ10 product line. This line is also great for the sea air of the coast and the extreme heat of the Deep South. It resists cracking, rotting, splitting and swelling following the hot, humid, tropical storm season.
