James Hardie™: Fire Resistant Siding for Colorado Homes
According to the Underwriters Laboratories Firefighter Research Institute, the average time a family has to flee a modern home before the flashover point (when all combustible material in a house catches fire) is a mere 2-3 minutes. Previously, homes took longer to burn, providing 17 minutes of escape time.
With building materials being more flammable and toxic than ever, it’s as important to prevent fires from outside as it is from inside. James Hardie siding gives Colorado homeowners peace of mind with its non-combustible fiber cement construction, ensuring that fires are either prevented completely or delayed long enough for residents to escape.
Installing James Hardie siding is an easy way to protect your home and family from fires, so why delay your installation?
