Your siding consumes almost your entire home’s exterior. As such, it is one of the first things your neighbors notice when passing by your home. To make this portion of your home more appealing to both passersby and future buyers, it’s important to pick the right trim for it. The trim defines the different features of your siding and also protects your home from moisture infiltration. One of the best options you can consider is James Hardie®’s HardieTrim® siding.
In this post, your trusted exterior renovation contractors, PJ Sullivan Exteriors, shares why HardieTrim is a great way to finish any siding project.
It Lasts For a Long Time
James Hardie is known to produce some of the best, durable and most long-lasting siding products. Both HardiePlank® lap siding and HardieTrim boards have the ColorPlus® Technology feature. It’s a unique, factory-applied color system that makes use of up to 50 percent more coats of paint, compared to contemporary color products, giving your siding a vibrant shine.
Since it’s a baked-on coating, siding contractors state that this enhances your siding’s resistance against cracking, chipping, and peeling. It also makes it resistant to UV rays, enhancing your siding’s color and keeping it beautiful for the years to come. It’s also rather easy to maintain.
It Provides Superior Durability
Some homeowners might think that the trim is merely a decorative finish to your siding, but this is clearly not the case. In fact, it protects the transitions between the wall openings and window frames, which requires it to be as strong as your siding unit. Fortunately, HardieTrim boards are made with fiber cement, similar to James Hardie siding products. It handles weather extremes very well, as well as the impact of windborne debris and hail stones. You can also expect it to last as long as your siding.
