James Hardie has been making fibre-cement boards and strips for over twenty years. During this time they have become a household name throughout North America. And they have been working constantly to reinforce their position. Their Colour Plus Technology remains one of their strongest selling points. This is a system for permanently coating their boards and siding with a vibrant series of colours almost guaranteed to meet everybody’s tastes.
This Gives You One of the Best Maintenance Free Finishes
Hence there’s no need to repaint the exterior of your home unless you change your taste in colour. To keep your finish in tip-top shape all you need do is clean the product with water and a soft brush or cloth, James Hardie further recommends a mild detergent and a soft brush for stubborn dirt or stains.
They provide Color Plus® Touch-up Kits to cover over nicks, scrapes and surplus nail holes that may occur, after filling (as necessary) with cementitious patching compound. However, they suggest replacing the particular board if the damage is more severe.
Being able to readily replace a strip of damaged siding is one of the greatest advantages of choosing a James Hardie product. They are a large international company. Chances are they will be around for a long time to come. We’ve covered some tips to replace
