The Advantages of James Hardie Siding in the Pacific Northwest

When it comes to fortifying your home against the whims of the Pacific Northwest weather, choosing the right siding material is not just a matter of aesthetics, but also of endurance and practicality. James Hardie Siding stands out as a beacon of reliability in this regard. Designed to withstand the unique climate conditions of the region, this siding solution offers homeowners peace of mind, coupled with a flair of elegance. In this post, we delve into the myriad of benefits that this resilient siding material provides, ensuring your home remains a sanctuary against the elements.

Impervious to Pacific Northwest Weather

The Pacific Northwest is notorious for its damp, rainy weather, which can wreak havoc on traditional siding materials. James Hardie Siding, however, is engineered for climate, meaning it’s specifically designed to resist the challenges posed by this moist environment. Here are some of the protective features it boasts:

  • Moisture and Rot Resistance: With its advanced composition, James Hardie Siding offers excellent resistance to moisture, effectively preventing rot that commonly affects wood-based sidings.
  • Non-Combustible: Certified by fire departments across the nation, this siding doesn’t ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire, as Underwriters Laboratories have rigorously tested.
  • Pest Resistant: Pests such as termites and carpenter ants are a non-issue, as they cannot penetrate the durable fiber-cement material of James Hardie Siding, ensuring the structural integrity of your home.

Siding That Ages Gracefully

Another aspect where James Hardie Siding excels is in its long-term appearance. While other sidings deteriorate or fade over time, James Hardie products are renowned for their ColorPlus® Technology—a baked-on color option that comes with a 15-year warranty against chipping, peeling, and cracking. This innovation not only provides long-lasting beauty but also reduces maintenance costs and effort. The strength of its design allows it to stand up against the wind, rain, and even UV rays, ensuring homes look freshly painted for years without the frequent touch-ups required by other siding materials.

Eco-Conscious and Sustainable Choice

With the growing concern for environmental sustainability, James Hardie Siding emerges as an environmentally friendly option. The materials used are low in toxicity and renewable, and the siding is crafted to last, minimizing the need for replacement and reducing waste. Additionally, the energy efficiency of the product helps in cutting down heating and cooling costs, making it an eco-conscious choice for the green-minded homeowner.

Boosting Property Value

Investing in James Hardie Siding is not just a safeguard against the elements, but it also serves as a financial boon. It’s a well-regarded upgrade in the real estate market, often resulting in a favorable return on investment. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report, high-quality siding can yield a significant recoup rate upon the sale of a home, making it an attractive feature for potential buyers.

Choose this company for you siding, you won't be sorry! The owner Ian, is far and above best contractor I have ever worked with. Excels at communication, follow up and explains everything in a friendly non-pressure way. I interviewed three other contractors, before settling on Elite. I knew I would be in good hands for this huge investment with Ian as he was genuine and sincere about providing the best result. Both the siding and the paint crew are top notch professionals, with a great work ethic and attention to detail, they are Hardie trained so you can be sure the installation was done to the highest standard and it shows! We went from ugly worn out 20 year vinyl to James Hardie siding, and the difference astounding, very very happy with what feels like a new house now.

Ian is extremely knowledgeable at his craft. He was so patient with all of our questions and concerns. We felt so comfortable from the moment we met him. We met with a few other companies to do our due diligence but Ian was the clear choice.

My home has a fairly complex exterior, and we were looking to re-side the home as we were dealing with constant issues of water intrusion. I was searching the greater Portland/Vancouver area for Siding Contractors for Hardie Siding, as we really just wanted something that would hold up against the elements and protect us in the case of any nearby fires (we’re close to some woods). After meeting Ian from Elite Home Exteriors, we decided to go with him and we couldn’t have been happier that we decided to go with him as out Siding Contractor. We had additional problems from the water damage too, and the folks he recommended were also top notch. Ian and team are a James Hardie Elite Preferred Siding Contractor, which means basically that he’s passed the highest certification for installing James Hardie siding products. I would work with him again, but based on his fit and finish, I probably won’t need to! Thanks Ian!

Working with Ian and his company was an absolute pleasure. I currently own 2 homes and have had 3 previous houses, so I’ve had experience with many contractors over the last 20 years and most are not good. My husband and I had a water intrusion issue (undisclosed to us during a house purchase) that we subsequently discovered for ourselves 6 months later in the rainy season. After meeting with many contactors to figure out how to execute the repair, we decided that their prices were outrageous even for just a patch job and we decided to do the right thing and replace all the wood siding with Hardie plank. My husband found Ian online, and we met with him. He is excellent at communication, through emails/text and/or phone calls. He was always pleasant to meet with and didn’t talk to me as if I was a dumb homeowner, which happens quite a bit in this industry. He was happy to answer all my questions and work with us on a documented design for adding architectural details so there was no questions on how the job would look. He and his crew were always punctual and professional. They finished the job ahead of schedule and did everything promised. Honestly, the water intrusion situation was very stressful, but Ian made it a pleasure to get resolved. I am so happy that we went with him and have had excellent results. My high-strung HOA was even happy about his work and gave us a compliment. I wholeheartedly recommend him, and I would be happy to talk to anyone wanting a reference about our pleasant experience. It isn’t every day that such a huge job is completed with such ease and professionalism. I 100% recommend working with Ian and Elite Home Exteriors NW – you won’t be disappointed!

The South wall of the house had rot and cut siding from a previous connected wood deck. Ian was a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional from start to finish. He answered detailed questions, gave me several options to fit within my budget. Ian communicated with me throughout the process, and was accommodating when I requested more detail, or a change during planning phase. His crew shows up on schedule, were friendly and courteous of my property, and cleaned up thoroughly before leaving. The job was completed quickly and within budget. The new siding and paint is an asset to this house and exceeds my expectations. I enjoyed working with Ian, and would recommend Elite Home Exteriors NW to anyone considering a siding update for their home.

Glad I hired Ian and his team to replace siding on the south-facing side of my house. Communication with Ian throughout project was as good as any contractor I've worked with. The work was done well, went smoothly, just what you want. Also glad to see them not show up in expensive vehicle wrapped graphics, etc that the customer pays for. I'll have more siding to do on my house and will hire them again.
