The Old World elegance of wood siding is not without its downsides; you’d need to invest a lot of time and money to maintain the material’s aesthetic appeal. This is due to wood’s susceptibility to moisture, rot and mold.
Luckily, you can enjoy that same opulence without having to worry about the upkeep with James Hardie® Artisan® siding. It can mimic the feel and texture of authentic wood while retaining fiber cement’s characteristic durability.
Here are the features of Artisan siding.
Outstanding Protection From the Elements
James Hardie’s Artisan siding has been engineered to withstand rough weather conditions as well as all the issues that plague wooden siding. Unlike wood, fiber cement is resistant to humidity, moisture, insects and even fire.
Eco-Friendly Aesthetic Appeal
With Artisan siding, you can heighten your home’s visual impact while lowering your environmental impact. Choosing durable products is one way of reducing environmental degradation as it would result in less construction waste ending up in landfills.
Furthermore, James Hardie is committed to using natural, sustainable raw materials with low toxicity in our products; we source at least 75% of our raw materials locally and have taken the necessary steps to minimize our manufacturing facilities’ carbon footprint.
James Hardie’s Artisan siding comes in three profiles, with each offering a twist on the elegance of wood.
Lap Siding: More traditional homes tend to favor horizontal siding, making lap siding an ideal choice for those who want a consistent classic aesthetic for their exterior.
V-Groove Siding: V-groove siding is suited for those who want a more contemporary look without veering too far away from the traditional.
Accent Trim: The shadow lines cast by accent trims give your exterior a geometric, modern look, making this type of siding perfect for those who prefer a more contemporary design style.
