Erdmann Is an Elite Preferred James Hardie® Contractor

There’s no question that James Hardie siding is one of the best siding products on the market today. This high-performance siding is durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance, improves a home’s energy efficiency, and is available in a wide variety of colors and styles to fit every home.

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.

Fiber cement siding has the look and durability of cedar wood siding but without the maintenance needs. This composite product, made of cement, sand and cellulose fibers, won’t rot, warp or crack like wood. It is five times thicker than vinyl, which enhances its energy-efficient qualities and provides an authentic wood-grain effect. We offer James Hardie siding in a range of colors and styles to fit every home design, no matter what the home’s style or age.
