    The History of James Hardie Products

    James Hardie Industries is a company renowned for its fiber cement products, including siding. The history of James Hardie fiber cement siding stretches back to the late 19th century.


    James Hardie, a young Scottish immigrant, established the company in Melbourne, Australia, in 1888. Initially, the company focused on manufacturing and supplying building materials.

    Asbestos Years:

     In the mid-20th century, James Hardie began producing asbestos cement products, which were widely used in construction due to their durability and fire resistance. However, as the health risks associated with asbestos became apparent, James Hardie phased out its asbestos production by the 1980s and moved towards developing safer alternatives.

    Development of Fiber Cement:

     In the 1980s, James Hardie pioneered the development of fiber cement technology as a safer alternative to asbestos. Fiber cement consists of cellulose fibers, cement, and sand, providing strength, durability, and resistance to fire, moisture, and pests. This innovation marked a significant turning point for the company.

    Expansion and Global Reach

    As demand for fiber cement products grew, James Hardie expanded its operations globally, establishing manufacturing facilities in various countries, including the United States. The company became a leading provider of fiber cement siding, offering a range of products designed for different climates and architectural styles.

    Innovation and Product Lines:

     Over the years, James Hardie continued to innovate its fiber cement siding products, introducing advancements in technology, aesthetics, and performance. The company offers a diverse range of siding options, including lap siding, shingles, panels, and trim, catering to the needs of residential and commercial construction projects.

    Market Leadership

    James Hardie’s commitment to quality, durability, and sustainability has solidified its position as a market leader in the fiber cement siding industry. Its products are known for their longevity, low maintenance requirements, and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions.

    Regulatory Challenges

    Despite its success, James Hardie has faced legal and regulatory challenges, particularly related to asbestos-related liabilities. The company has worked to address these issues through compensation funds and settlements.

    Today, James Hardie fiber cement siding is widely used in construction projects around the world, valued for its durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal.

    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.

    I chose to contract the team at Elite Home Exteriors NW to replace my siding as they had a fair price and provided a detail guide of materials, process and standards. They exceeded my expectations by finishing work early, were quick to communicate, did a fantastic job of replacing the siding and the team that did the install were friendly and helpful. I would solidly recommend Elite Home Exteriors!
