First Large-Scale James Hardie® Siding Project in BC
Recognizing the challenging weather conditions that are common along the Pacific Ocean, which included the horizontal stress of rain at 80+ km/hr wind gusts, we adapted the exterior design of the development from stucco to James Hardie® fibre cement siding.
Engineered for extreme climatic conditions – including moisture, cold temperatures, and humidity – James Hardie® siding has been a proven investment that has maintained its structure and appearance 25+ years after it was installed.
We’re proud to have been the first builder to work with James Hardie® fibre cement siding on a large-scale residential development in BC, especially considering that any other exterior finish – whether it be stucco, vinyl, or wood – would not have stood up to the critical weather conditions as long as the fibre cement siding.
