House fires tend to spike in the winter. A house fire can be difficult to control, destructive and at times devastating. Be sure to consider fire resistance when making choices for your home’s exterior.
It makes sense that the protective and durable HardiePlank® lap siding is the most widely used James Hardie® product on the market. The product is made from fiber cement, which prevents combustion, flame spread and smoke significantly more than its wood and vinyl siding counterparts.
To hear firsthand about one couple’s experience, check out this real-life story. The homeowners credit HardiePlank siding for reducing damage from a fire that could have easily destroyed their home. In fact, they say they’ll never use any other siding.
If a house fire strikes, every second counts, and with James Hardie fire-resistant siding, the difference could mean whether or not your house is still your home, or merely ruins of your former living space.
