The HardieZone Siding System – Engineered for Climate

James HardieZone Siding System

James Hardie provides siding products that are Engineered for Climate®. We call this The HardieZone Siding System. It provides siding with specific performance attributes relative to the climate where the product is being used. As a result, James Hardie gives you the ability to put the optimum siding on a project regardless of your location.

We created the HardieZone® system to protect your projects, regardless of your region. Whether you work in wet, freezing conditions or the heat, humidity and blistering sun, there’s a HardieZone for you.


Science Behind The HardieZone Siding System

We based The HardieZone System on the eight individual climatic variables that primarily affect long-term performance of siding. Using these factors we arrived at ten distinct climatic zones. Though different, we found common variables in certain regions, allowing us to engineer the HZ5® product line for zones 1 through 5 and the HZ10® product line for zones 6 through 10.

HZ5® Fights Cold, Snow, Ice and Worry

The HZ5® product line is right at home in climates with freezing temperatures, extreme seasonal temperature variations, and snow and ice. To ensure its beauty matches its durability, we’ve engineered the surface for higher performance, giving it superior paint adhesion and moisture resistance. In addition, we’ve added a drip edge to provide improved water management. So you are not only getting an exterior that performs well in cold, nasty climates. You’re getting an exterior engineered just for it.
