Hardie Plank And Siding: The Most Common Replacements Of Stucco
Michael Gallagher LLC, is proud to be a James Hardie Preferred Contractor.
In addition to offering the very reputable CertainTeed line of vinyl siding products, we are extremely excited to be associated with the James Hardie organization. Despite the affordability associated with CertainTeed and its excellent choice of product line, in a Stucco Remediation project there are times when the Vinyl products will simply not suffice. Whether it be a zoning issue or simply complying with the bylaws of a specific Homeowners Association, James Hardie carries with it the reputation of a more prestigious product and has consistently retained the highest return on investment (ROI) of any of the cladding systems.
James Hardie Siding is a fiber-cement product. It carries with it an exceptional and transferable 30 year non-prorated warranty, with a unique 15 year Color Plus warranty on its finished products. The Hardie company has stated that Color Plus offers 30% better fade resistance and lasts up to 2 times longer than other brands. There is an extensive range of colors to choose from (currently 23 and counting) in addition to a wide variety of style choices to satisfy even the most discerning buyer.
When remediating moisture impacted stucco homes, we often suggest James Hardie Siding as an alternative cladding, in lieu of a full stucco replacement. We are finding that our clients are choosing James Hardie products more often than not due to the increasing stigma attached to stucco applications and their failures. James Hardie is a renowned product with a distinguished history that has exhibited a drastic increase in popularity over this past decade.
We are seeing a trend on many of our projects where our clients are asking for alternatives for stucco replacement. We offer a wide array of siding options allowing our customers an array of choices to fit their specific needs while still maintaining their home’s value. In many circumstances, the home may actually increase in value while at the same time appealing to more potential buyers. Moving away from stucco siding will greatly benefit you, while making your home that much better!
