Hardie Board is an Investment in Your Home

Homes in Saskatchewan have a tough gig. With high winds, dramatic temperature fluctuations, lots of sun, and shifting storms, there is a lot that your siding has to put up with. Your siding is the barrier that holds your family through the changing seasons and living skies. Choosing a material like Hardie Board is an investment in longevity and security.

What makes Hardie board different?

Hardie Board is made from fibre cement to replicate the look and feel of cedar siding without the maintenance needs. It comes in an endless variety of colour options and styles, making it a versatile material that suits your unique design sensibilities.

In Saskatoon, where the weather can change dramatically, Hardie board siding is an investment in the long-term protection of your home – this durable material is a homeowner’s best choice for long-lasting, rugged durability. Due to its material composition, fibre cement siding is also fire resistant, making it a popular choice in areas where wildfires and grassfires are common.

Why is Hardie Board more expensive than vinyl siding?

The upfront cost of Hardie board can make homeowners think twice about opting for it, however, as a product that lasts at least 50 years (compared to the 10-20 year lifespan of vinyl siding). When deciding which option will be best for your home, it is best to consider the cost over time to make an informed decision.

Hardie board is more complicated to install as it is heavier and requires experience. This can mean that the labour costs are more expensive than with other types of siding. These costs are typically balanced when you consider the lifespan and upkeep, but it’s important to make an informed decision when you’re choosing siding for your home.

What are the advantages of choosing Hardie Board in Saskatchewan?

In the prairies, we are subjected to more than one type of hazard. Our homes have to stand up to a lot – this is why durable and resilient materials are such an asset.

  • Weather resistant in areas with extreme weather conditions

    • This includes hail and heavy rain, high winds, and forest fires. This durable fibre cement material is a great choice for homes in the prairies.

  • Reduce your carbon footprint

    • While Hardie board on its own has a lower R-value, it more than makes up for it in the lack of environmental impact of its material – making it a great eco-friendly choice for your home.

  • Dampen exterior noise

    • Unfortunately, we don’t get to choose our neightbours. Adding a high mass siding can significantly reduce outdoor noise, making your home a quiet oasis. It can also reduce the sound of storms and traffic noise.

If you’re looking for Saskatchewan-ready siding, Hardie board is the answer.

With its durability and lifespan, this is a great material to choose for your home, whether you are building new or renovating. If you’re interested in pricing out siding for your home, we offer free quotes, flexible payments, and expert advice.
