 Specific Solutions for your Northern Virginia Home’s Siding

Moss Home Services, Northern Virginia’s premier handyman services company, knows that the local climate can run the range from blistering heat and humidity to extreme cold and precipitation. Therefore, Moss Home Services has partnered with James Hardie to offer our clients the very best siding to withstand the variety of weather-related issues we deal with in Northern Virginia. Other siding companies offer a “one siding solution for all”. In contrast, James Hardie has based its unique siding options on research and years of experience, specifically tailored to provide its clients with sound durability, beauty, and higher performance.

What Makes James Hardie Siding Unique?

James Hardie has developed the HardieZone® System, siding which is specifically engineered for the climatic variances across the United States. In fact, the company has found that there are ten distinct climatic zones in the country– and while there are differences among all of them, James Hardie has found that there enough similarities to be able to offer two soundly engineered siding options, the HZ5® and the HZ10®. Our Northern Virginia climate falls under the category of HZ5®, and the siding is specifically targeted to protect against cold, snow, and ice.
