Your siding makes your home look beautiful, protects your home from the elements, and insulates your home. When it comes time to replace your deteriorating siding, can be stressful to find a contractor you can trust to do the job right.

We get it. At Alco Products, we understand what it’s like to be a homeowner, and how inconvenient a siding replacement is for you and your family. That’s why we treat your family and your home just like we would our own—with special care and respect.

Here are five common problems that beautiful, long-lasting fiber cement siding from James Hardie can solve for your DC metro home.

Problem #1: My Siding Is Cracked or Warped

Warped and cracked siding is unsightly and can lead to further issues for your home, including high utility costs or water damage.

The primary cause of warped or cracked siding is the weather. Extreme heat can cause vinyl siding to warp, and cold winters can cause the warped siding to buckle. Wood siding maintenance can be very time-consuming and costly.

James Hardie siding products are Engineered for Climate, otherwise called the HardieZone System. The HardieZone System means that all James Hardie siding products are created for optimum performance for the climate in which they are installed. As a result, James Hardie siding, otherwise known as Hardie siding, does not warp or crack under extreme weather conditions.

Your Maryland home falls in the HZ5 zone. James Hardie HZ5 products resist damage from moisture in regions with extreme seasonal temperature variations and year-round precipitation. You can be confident that your James Hardie siding will not break, warp, or crack during the next big storm to hit the Maryland area.

Problem #2: I’m Spending Too Much on My Energy Bill

Do your energy bills skyrocket during the winter and summer months? If so, inspect your siding for rot, cracks, or peeling. Damaged siding can create problems with your home’s insulation and cause your energy bills to spike.

Made of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers, James Hardie fiber cement siding can withstand damage from pests, moisture, and rot. Hardie Board siding protects your home’s insulation from damage, so you and your family can enjoy pleasant indoor temperatures and lower energy bills.

Problem #3: My Home Isn’t Worth As Much As It Could Be

If you are concerned about the value of your home, a fiber cement siding replacement is an excellent way to increase your home’s equity.

Fiber cement siding replacements provide homeowners with the highest return on investment in the remodeling industry. According to the Cost vs. Value report for 2020, homeowners in Washington, D.C., who invest in a fiber cement siding replacement will recoup 81.3% of their investment.

You can be confident that the initial cost of your fiber cement siding installation will pay off in the years to come!

You don’t have to settle for dull, lackluster siding. James Hardie fiber cement siding will keep your home looking beautiful for years to come.

Problem #5: My Home Lacks Curb Appeal

You should be confident about your home, not embarrassed about its appearance. Homeowners who want to replace their damaged, unsightly, or outdated siding in favor of a beautiful, durable, and versatile option should invest in fiber cement siding.

Hardie Board siding is attractive and highly customizable. James Hardie fiber cement siding can mimic the classic look of natural wood siding but doesn’t absorb moisture as wood siding does. Hardie Board siding is available in dozens of styles and colors for you to choose from to match the look of your home.

Don’t wait to add gorgeous curb appeal to your home. Invest in James Hardie fiber cement siding for an attractive siding option that lasts.
