What if My Fiber Cement Siding Was Installed Improperly?
If your fiber cement siding was installed improperly, this is a big problem that you will want to be fixed right away. However, it is important to remember that James Hardie is a high-quality product you can depend on for many years. Therefore, you should not blame the product because of the person who installed it. Most complaints about this type of siding are because it was improperly installed.

If your fiber cement siding was improperly installed, you could contact another company, such as Capital Construction, to fix the person’s mistakes and install the siding correctly by following the manufacturer’s guidelines. Once you hire our team and see our results, we guarantee you will be happy with this dependable, appealing, and lasting product.

Many companies in the Boston area and surrounding cities are not James Hardie Elite Preferred Installers. Therefore, they are not experienced, knowledgeable, or trained in correctly installing fiber cement siding. While they offer lower prices, you may pay more in the long run to fix their mistakes. The 30-year warranty may also be voided if the product is not properly installed. This will not only lead to you being angry, but it will also cause stress, frustration, and overwhelming feelings after spending so much time and money on a beautiful siding that you expected to go on your home and last you for many years.

Doesn’t Fiber Cement Siding Install Like Other Sidings?
Fiber cement siding does not install like other sidings. It is much different than wood, stucco, brick, vinyl, and other types of siding. Therefore, fiber cement siding has its own set of directions to follow when installing this type of siding. That is why it is highly recommended that you hire a James Hardie Elite Preferred Installer to ensure your siding is installed correctly the first time and prevent any unnecessary damage to the siding during the installation process.

Can I Install Fiber Cement Siding Myself?
While you may be handy when doing things in your home and believe you have what it takes to install fiber cement siding, you should rethink this carefully. Some people have taken this step and succeeded by watching videos that provide directions, but there have been many people who have encountered serious problems that could have been avoided if they hired a professional to do the job for them. The following are a few reasons why you should reconsider installing fiber cement siding yourself:

You may not have the tools: You need special tools when installing fiber cement siding. A lot of people do not own these tools. Therefore, it is best to let professionals with the tools handle the job.

You may not have the experience or training: This can be a very challenging process, and you need experience and training. If you are new to installing fiber cement siding, you may make costly mistakes.

You may not have the time: Installing fiber cement siding can be overwhelming and stressful. Therefore, you must have several weeks or months of free time to complete this project. However, if you hire Capital Construction, your contractor can dedicate all their time to your siding installation, completing it within hours or days.

Your warranty may be voided: If you decide to install and damage the siding, your warranty will be voided. This could cause big issues as you now have damaged siding and no replacement warranty.
