What’s the HardieZone® System, and How Does it Benefit You?
Siding is a primary defense agent for your home’s exterior, protecting your walls from water infiltration and other damage. To ensure that this system performs exceptionally, your siding should be optimized for your specific regional climate. Thanks to innovative HardieZone technology, James Hardie® siding from All States Home Improvement is designed to do just that. This advanced system ensures that the product is tested and designed for your region by accounting for eight climatic variables that can affect the performance of siding over time. Fortunately, as an Elite Preferred contractor through the James Hardie Contractor Alliance Program™, All States Home Improvement will proudly supply and install this superior product series for homeowners in the Wichita Kansas areas.
Many environmental factors can jeopardize the functionality of your home’s siding. That’s why James Hardie® products are carefully designed with technology that accounts for the worst-case weather scenario. By designing siding that considers regional weather patterns, James Hardie® gives homeowners peace of mind that they are receiving an upgrade that’s specifically designed to work for their homes. To accomplish this, the experts at James Hardie® looked at common variables in specific regions and engineered two product lines for 10 climatic zones. These lines are:
- HZ5®, for zones one through five – This product line is constructed for regions that experience freezing temperatures, major seasonal shifts, and year-round precipitation. With an added drip edge for water management and a superior surface layer for lasting paint adhesion and moisture resistance, this product performs beautifully in bitter, cold climates.
- HZ10®, for zones six through 10 – This product line was engineered for Southern regions that experience brutal hurricane-force winds, salty coastal air, and year-round humidity. As such, HZ10® boards are specially designed to resist swelling, cracking, rotting, and splitting into tropical storm seasons.
In short, these two systems work to defend your home by keeping water out, releasing trapped moisture, and providing superior air resistance and insulation.
