James Hardie Fire Resistance
While a fire may seem like an unlikely event for those living in other parts of the country, for homeowners Colorado, fires pose a very real and serious threat. Colorado’s climate is warmer and drier than other parts of the country which means fires tend to spread fast and are especially problematic for those in the mountain and plains region of the state. In the event that a fire breaks out near your home, you want to know that you have time to get your family safely outside. While James Hardie fiber cement is not considered a fireproof product, it is considered to be fire resistant. James Hardie siding products are non combustible and are considered by many building professionals to be a safer alternative than wood or vinyl siding.
