James Hardie Siding

HardieZone™ 10

Say goodbye to the days of one-siding-fits-all. The James Hardie® HardieZone™ System means you home will be protected by siding with specific performance attributes relative to the climate where the product is being used. James Hardie gives Acadian Windows & Siding the ability to install the optimum siding formulation that will hold up against all kinds of Louisiana weather.

Siding that works in California or New England will not provide the protection we need here in Louisiana. So why do so many Louisiana siding contractors install the same siding products that are used all across the country?

Acadian Windows & Siding installs James Hardie fiber cement siding with HardieZone 10 technology, guaranteeing siding with specific performance attributes relative to our climate and weather conditions.

The HardieZone System is based on the eight individual climatic variables that primarily affect long-term performance of siding: temperature, UV exposure, humidity, rainfall, snow, hail, and hurricane potential, and topographical factors. Using these factors James Hardie scientists arrived at ten distinct climatic zones.

James Hardie products for siding Louisiana homes are in the HZ10 zone. That means the fiber cement siding we install on your home is specifically formulated to deliver the best performance for our hot, wet and humid climate.

HardieZone® technology offers superior protection and durability, and is yet another reason to choose James Hardie fiber cement siding from Acadian Windows & Siding.
