Every home across the country has specific requirements based on the climate in its region. From the roofing system to the type of siding, it’s important to use the appropriate materials to ensure that they will perform well under local weather.
That said, if you are planning to install new siding, you might want to consider the James Hardie® HardieZone® System. PJ Sullivan Exteriors, a trusted provider of custom entry doors and siding products, shares more information about it.
The HardieZone System
James Hardie understands that homeowners have various home improvement needs that are unique to their location. That is why they have come up with siding products that are Engineered for Climate® — called The HardieZone System.
The HardieZone System provides siding that is specifically designed for the climate where the product is going to be used. So whether you work in wet and freezing conditions or under high humidity and heat, you can rest assured that there is a HardieZone for you.
Siding and door replacement companies find the HardieZone System helpful too because it allows them to provide the right type of siding products for their clients.
HZ5 Vs. HZ10
The HardieZone System is based on eight individual climatic variables, which affect the long-term performance of the siding. Through these factors, James Hardie has distinguished 10 distinct climatic zones. These regions are different from each other, but some variables are common among certain regions. This has enabled James Hardie to engineer two sets of product lines: HZ5 for zones 1 to 5 and HZ10 for zones 6 to 10.
The HZ5 product line is designed for climates with snow and ice, freezing temperatures and extreme seasonal temperature variations. To ensure that its beauty can withstand such elements, this siding is made with superior paint adhesion and moisture resistance. It also features a drip edge for better water management.
The HZ10 product line, on the other hand, is meant for regions that experience blistering sun, sheets of rain, and hurricane-force winds. It can resist splitting, cracking, swelling and rotting.
