In case of a fire, you want to know that walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire feasts on wood, and it melts vinyl almost instantly. But James Hardie® siding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.

Since fiber cement (unlike vinyl) is non-combustible and hail-damage resistant, it can sometimes  help reduce home insurance premiums. Ask your agent for more details
