Fiber Cement Siding (Hardie Board)


Have You Considered Fiber Cement (Hardie Board) Siding?

JamesHardie is the leading manufacturer of fiber cement siding or “Hardie board”. This exterior covering has become very popular with discerning homeowners in Murfreesboro and beyond, because it can stand up to blistering sun, strong winds (up to 150 MPH), and driving rain, without losing its beauty or strength.

Not only does it keep the elements out of your home, but Hardie board also resists the effects that the elements can have on other types of siding, including rotting, warping, and delamination. And because it’s five times thicker than vinyl siding, Hardie board is superior at withstanding even the wrath of a hailstorm, which we are all too familiar with here in Middle Tennessee.


JamesHardie’s Weather Resistant HZ10® Siding

At L&L Contractors, we regularly install JamesHardie’s HZ10® product line, which is a good fit for the climate in Middle Tennessee. According to, “[HZ10] was engineered for areas with hurricane-force winds, salty sea air of the coast, and the brutal, humid heat of the Deep South.”

Though land-locked, those of us in Murfreesboro and Nashville certainly have more than our fair share of extreme weather. But with Hardie board, you don’t have to worry about your siding cracking, splitting, rotting, insect boring, or swelling, even during our worst weather seasons.
