HOUSTON, Dec. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Hardie Plank siding, which is a mixture of wood and cement, has several distinct features that set it apart from other building materials. Home Exterior Systems has announced that the company now performs Hardie Plank installation, boosting the company's repertoire of services.
Hardie Plank siding is resistant to peeling, cracking, and fading. It doesn't age as quickly as many traditional building materials, making it ideal for homeowners hoping to make permanent upgrades to their home's exterior. Hardie Plank's manufacturers warrant that, if painted and maintained properly, the siding can last as long as 50 years.
Hardie Plank siding is about as thick as wood siding, making it much thicker and more durable than traditional vinyl siding. And though it is partially made of wood, Hardie Plank siding is fire resistant. Special treatments make the material able to ward off pests and insects, further boosting the material's durability. Homeowners concerned about the environment are encouraged to consider Hardie Plank siding, as its installation is green and involves the use of non-toxic materials.
Home Exterior Systems also points out that the coloring of Hardie Plank siding is made with a proprietary process, known as ColorPlus Technology. The system uses multiple coats of paint to assure color fastness. The goal of the process is to produce a low-maintenance finish which is durable and beautiful. It can mimic many other building materials without suffering from their drawbacks. Furthermore, Hardie Plank products are exceedingly easy to paint after installation, so homeowners can enjoy simple maintenance and further customization options.
When it comes to the siding's texture, the two most popular options are the cedarmill style and the smooth style. The cedarmill style imitates wood grain by using texture, beading, and shadows. The smooth style comes in three versions: the simple style, which is texture free; the channel-cut colonial smooth style; and the modestly textured beaded style.
Hardie Plank siding is manufactured by the James Hardie company, a successful industry leader that is popular among home-renovation contractors.
Home Exterior Systems is a Houston-based business that has been operating since 2003, and it has been a member of the Better Business Bureau since 2005. The company prides itself on customer relations and continually training its employees. Along with its specialization in siding, the company also provides services such as windows, gutters, roofing, decks, patios, and power washing. The company can be reached by phone at (281) 542-9577.
