Save Energy Co. proudly offers the James Hardie Siding System!

“We believe there is no better way to wrap your home in enduring strength, security and beauty.” John Gorman, Co-Owner of Save Energy

Weather is tough on your home and its siding. The sun bakes it. Expands it. Cracks it. Water hits it, finds its way into the cracks. Water can break down siding products — especially those pre-millennial ones. As composite wood products, they tend to start absorbing water as they age. And that’s when product failure begins.

James Hardie siding products are 90% fiber cement. They don’t absorb moisture. They actually repel it. And when you get a siding installation for your home with the James Hardie Siding System, it gets tightly wrapped in a durable, long lasting, highly water-resistant layer. It’s like a raincoat for your home…only better.

3 Reasons to Choose the James Hardie Siding System

1. Resistant to Moisture and Rot

Rot and all of its destructive associates thrive on one thing: Moisture — the kind that seeps in and gets trapped behind something, like cracked siding. It also loves one other thing: time — time to hang around…for years. Since James Hardie Siding is made of cement, it doesn’t crack. And it resists — even repels — moisture. That means rot and company have no place to hang around your home clad in James Hardie Siding.

2. Resistant to the signs of Aging

Years of exposure to weather will cause even the best paint to crack and peel. James Hardie siding with ColorPlus® Technology means the color is applied during the manufacturing process — actually baked on so it becomes part of the siding, not a layer resting on top of it. The result is no peeling. No cracking. Ever.

3. Resistant to Fire

House fire. A scary thought. Fire feasts on wood siding. It melts vinyl siding. Quickly. But when fire encounters James Hardie Siding, it doesn’t find the fuel it needs. What it finds is resistance… because James Hardie Siding is of fiber cement composition. And cement doesn’t burn — which means your loved ones have more time to find safety and fire fighters have more time to do their job.
