Heat & Flame Resistant

James Hardie fiber cement siding is non-combustible aka it does not go up in flames. Plus, its heat resistant, so you never have to worry about your siding warping or melting. Vinyl siding is vulnerable to melting caused by flame, grills and solar heat reflected off Low-E windows.
