At Royalty Roofing and Renovations, our customers expect the best of the best – from service, to experience, and especially products and materials. That’s why we only source materials from manufacturers that provide exceptional products. One company we are proud to partner with is James Hardie. James Hardie is the leading provider of siding products in the U.S. and they are widely known for their quality.

Not only are James Hardie products durable against weather, water, fire, pests, and time, but they are beautiful! We love being able to offer in-demand colors and styles of their products that fit the needs and desires of our customers.

Here are a few benefits of choosing Hardie® fiber cement siding – 


James Hardie siding is over five times thicker than vinyl, allowing for deeper grooves and a more authentic wood-grain effect. The result is more elegant than vinyl (which is plastic), particularly on a historic home. Fiber cement siding is also engineered to resist moisture, which can lead to swelling and expanding in wood or engineered wood siding, causing unsightly gaps.

James Hardie also offers a wide selection of styles and colors. Choose from vertical siding, lap siding, shake shingles, or board & batten – plus the finishing touches like soffit panels and trim boards.


When it comes to fire protection, James Hardie brand products are noncombustible and fire-retardant. On the other hand, vinyl melts easily in a fire and wood siding is extremely flammable. Against weather elements, vinyl is susceptible to cracks, holes, and warping while fiber cement siding is durably resistant to warping, sagging, or other damage. As mentioned above, moisture and humidity can cause engineered wood to swell, leading to gaps which impacts the effectiveness of siding. This makes fiber cement siding a particularly smart choice for homeowners in the midwest.
