Feeling pride in the look of your home and confidence in the materials in which it is shielded from the elements is the end result Belk Builders strives to provide each of our clients. From the first year to years later, the beauty of Hardie® Plank siding is unrivaled. Because it’s created to stand up to the demands of virtually every climate, Hardie® Plank siding stays beautiful longer, reducing time and money spent on maintenance. Unlike other siding materials, it can resist expansion and contraction, retaining finish adhesion over time. And with ColorPlus Technology, a baked-on color option, you get vibrant color and a long-lasting, beautiful exterior.
We proudly offer Hardie® products and are the Queen City’s qualified installation company for a full array of Hardie® products. Known for its reliability, this premium siding eliminates any anxiety you may feel about how your siding is performing. That’s why it is the most popular brand of siding in America and found on over 5.5 million homes. With its strength, beauty, durability and full range of regionally based colors, it enhances and protects homes in all kinds of climates.
There are many reasons to choose Hardie® Plank siding:
- It’s over five times thicker than vinyl, allowing for deeper grooves and a more authentic wood-grain effect
- It’s noncombustible, highly durable and resists warping, sagging, melting, hail, and high winds up to 150 mph
- It’s less expensive than wood, won’t be eaten by animals or insects and resists water absorption, which in turn helps protect your home against mold
- It resists weather damage and keeps its shape for a much longer time, which means less maintenance to worry about year after year
Not to be overlooked, every project starts with a good base. Hardie® Weather Barrier and flashing provides a balance of water resistance and breathability, reducing water intrusion while allowing water vapor from inside your home to escape. This keeps the area within your walls and around your doors and windows dry as it is composed of high-performance materials which help prevent mildew and reduces energy loss.
For a recent project in Concord, NC we replaced the home’s existing siding with premium Hardie® Shingle Staggered Edge fiber cement siding. This exterior update using this siding style gives the home a more charming appearance due to the timeless, classic beauty of shingles as a design element. In addition, the ColorPlus Technology factory applied, baked on finish provides up to 30% better fade resistance than competitive products. Made using the highest quality raw materials utilizing the James Hardie® proprietary manufacturing process, revolutionary finish technology and innovative color process, it combines the advanced fiber cement formulation with a factory-applied, baked-on finish.
The Hardie® ColorPlus® Technology siding color palette was created by color professionals who handpicked the custom siding colors and siding color combinations for each area of the country. Selections were based on regional housing styles, environmental surroundings and extensive research and development. The color palette for siding in the Southern region includes, but is not limited to: neutrals, greens, blues, browns and even a beautiful deep red.
Overall Hardie® Plank offers maximum durability, resistance to prolonged exposure to freezing climate and moisture contact as well as a long-lasting low-maintenance finish. The addition of its 15-year limited warranty that covers both paint and labor and protects against peeling, cracking, and chipping further confirms its well-earned reputation as the best choice in siding for homeowners.
