James Hardie at a Glance

On more than 8 million homes across the country there is some iteration of James Hardie siding, making the brand a staple of the siding industry. The reason for why James Hardie’s popularity? Well, as their website puts it:
“We’ve won over the press, the remodeling industry, and most importantly, our customers, with the beauty and durability of our products.”

The Hardie brand prides itself on offering products that are both practical and visually appealing for homeowners, particularly in that of their vinyl siding products, which we work with here at Erdmann. This is not to say, however, that their other products are of any less quality.

  • A 40% reduction of greenhouse gas intensity
  • 20 million cubic feet of additional water recycled 
  • 50% reduction in manufacturing waste intensity
These future-oriented goals distinguish James Hardie as a company with morality and drive. We are happy to work with them as they continue to achieve more sustainable methods of production.

James Hardie is one of the most widely trusted siding brands for a reason. The products that they offer continue to impress both homeowners and contractors alike, with their quality, durability, and versatility.

What to Know About James Hardie Siding

With manufacturing plants in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines, James Hardie is the largest siding manufacturer in the world. Since the 1980s, James Hardie has been a pioneer in the development of fiber cement siding technology. Today, the brand is synonymous with beauty, durability, versatility and strength. In fact, it was named the #1 Quality Exterior Lap Siding Product for 13 years running and has been named the #1 return on home investment dollars for 8 years in a row.

In Home

“Kyle Erdmann was our main contact throughout our remodeling, and was extremely easy to work with. He had good ideas for the appearance of the house and how to achieve them within our budget. I was really impressed that Kevin Erdmann came out to the site and pitched in (no pun intended) on the roof when the weather caused delay. The siding and carpentry crews were great guys and did excellent work. The dog really misses them all.”
