The Hardie Plank Siding Experts
If you’re considering re-siding your current home or are actively searching for a new home, you should know that Fiber Cement Siding is the industry leader in appearance, durability and value. Hardie products comes in a multitude of different designs, with Plank Siding being among the most popular.
What is Plank Siding?
Plank siding is an attractive exterior house covering consisting of long, flat planks that are laid horizontally across a wall. They are installed so the bottom edge of the upper plank slightly protrudes, or “laps”, over the top edge of the plank immediately below. This creates a shielding effect that forms a barrier against water penetration.
Who Can Install Hardie Plank Siding?
This is a high-end product that should be installed only by contractors trained in the handling and installation of this specialized siding. Plank house siding is a fiber cement product – not wood – so it will outlast any wood siding. It must be installed using only the proper fasteners and backing, in accordance with manufacturer guidelines.
Some contractors with minimal fiber cement experience are only passingly familiar with these guidelines. Others may have no knowledge of them. Why is this important? Improper installation can reduce the product’s performance and possibly affect your warranty.
