Is James Hardie Siding Moisture Resistant?

Water can seep into your stucco siding and result in rot, mold and mildew. The longer it goes undetected, the greater the need for repairs or siding replacement.

Stucco fails most home exteriors due to excessive moisture from snow, rain, or ice in your area, or due to its poor installation. Many homeowners don’t even know they have a moisture problem until they have their home inspected. Moisture intrusion can be masked, and there may be damage you don’t even know about. Once you have your home inspected by a trustworthy stucco remediation contractor, you may be surprised to learn you’re in need of stucco repair or replacement.

Have you experienced stucco failure problems, or moisture penetration troubles in your home’s current siding? To fully remediate your home, you’ll need new siding. The good news is that James Hardie fiber cement siding delivers moisture resistance you can count on. Avoid the troubles so many in Chester County have experienced with their stucco siding by installing durable Hardie siding on your home exterior.
