From the moment of installation, your new siding will take a beating from the elements. Savvy shoppers know choosing a siding product with a great warranty is essential. The manufacturer's guarantee to repair or replace your new exterior cladding protects your investment and demonstrates confidence in the product. That's why we're proud to offer the James Hardie warranty to our Nebraska customers.
At Thompson’s Home Improvement, the James Hardie siding we sell is protected by the HZ5 warranty. But what is the HZ5 warranty? We’ll break it down for you.
The engineers at James Hardie offer two types of siding: HZ5 and HZ10. What’s the difference? “HZ” stands for HardieZone. James Hardie siding was engineered to endure the different climate zones in various parts of the country. Here in Nebraska, we’re in HZ5: HardieZone 5.
This means that the James Hardie siding we install at Thompson’s Home Improvement is HZ5 siding, specially engineered to withstand snow, ice, and extreme cold. The warranty reflects coverage for the extreme weather we face here in the Midwest.
The James Hardie warranty provides excellent protection for any damage to your siding product that occurs on the manufacturer’s end. That demonstrates how confident the engineers at James Hardie are in the safety, performance, and durability of their product.
However, the warranty does not cover any damage that occurs when the siding is being installed. That means if you damage your siding while attempting to install it yourself, you can’t recoup the cost of the damage from James Hardie. And if you hire a subpar contractor who does not install James Hardie siding with best practices, you’ll be unable to have your product repaired or replaced, and you won’t be reimbursed for any damage. That’s why having a trusted contractor trained in installing James Hardie products is essential.
At Thompson’s Home Improvement, our team is specially trained in the proper installation of James Hardie products, directly from the manufacturer. If there’s any damage or defect on the manufacturer’s end of the process, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the James Hardie warranty.
Of course, you want quality installation of your product on principle, but when an investment of this size is on the line, trusting the workmanship of your installer is critical. When you trust your siding installation to Thompson’s Home Improvement means that you’ll get the full promise and protection of the James Hardie warranty. You can rest assured that your investment is totally protected and that you’ll get the best installation and care available for a homeowner in the Omaha metro area.
