Questions Customers Ask Us About Our Hardie Board
With all the hail in Calgary, hardie board is a lifesaver. These FAQ’s might help you feel confident about your investment.
Why Should You Use Hardie Board Siding in Calgary?
Many of our customers prefer hardie board siding because it is long-lasting, durable, and extremely low-maintenance. It makes a particularly great option for Calgary homes because of its ability to resist impact damage from hail and undergo seasonal temperature changes without warping the way many other siding materials do.
How Long Does Hardie Board Siding Normally Last?
When you hire professionals like Big 5 to install hardie board siding on your home, it can last for decades. Some homeowners have reported their hardie board siding lasting for up to 50 years.
Of course, every home is different—hardie board siding is incredibly durable, but it can still be damaged by extreme weather, freak accidents, and acts of god. Still, it’s safe to say you can expect your hardie board siding to last for many years with little maintenance.
How Do You Maintain Hardie Board Siding?
Cleaning and maintaining hardie board siding is very easy. Use water and a soft cloth to wipe down your siding whenever it becomes dusty, dirty, or oily. In the case of oil or grease spills, you may also want to use a mild cleaning solution such as dish detergent.
Avoid using abrasive brushes and cleaners on hardie board siding. These can damage the siding’s finish and lower the curb appeal of your home.
Does Hardie Board Siding Cost More?
In the short term, hardie board siding costs more per square foot than siding made from vinyl, and less than brick siding or high-quality wood siding.
However, in the long term, hardie board siding often provides better value for homeowners. This is because hardie board siding can outlast siding made from most other materials.
What Warranties Does Hardie Board Siding Come With?
All James Hardie siding comes with a limited 25-year manufacturer’s warranty that guarantees it will remain free from defects in materials or workmanship. When you hire Big 5 to install your hardie board siding, we also provide a 5-year installation warranty that covers our work.
How Long Does Hardie Board Siding Take to Install?
Hiring us to install siding on a typical two-story home usually takes about a week (5-6 business days) from quote to completion. Larger houses may require more time.
Can You Paint Hardie Board Siding?
Hardie board siding already comes in a variety of colours and textures, so there’s no need to paint it immediately once you’ve had it installed. Chances are that your smart trim will need to be painted after installation. However, some homeowners choose to paint their hardie board siding after a few years to give their home a different look and provide it with extra protection from the elements.
If you choose to paint your hardie board siding, be aware that it may compromise the manufacturer’s warranty. Contact us for more details about your specific siding products.

Real Customer Reviews
Big 5 just finished replacing all my homes gutters. They did an amazing job! The crew was efficient and professional and the work was top notch!
Safe , professional, site was always clean. No chatting, no music, just 2 quality tradesmen getting the project done. They noticed a couple spots on second story where the caulk was letting go...they noticed and they fixed...i wouldn't have known if I didn't see them. Site was cleaned up like nothing happened.
I needed new gutters for a rental property, and they were professional and very efficient. They even nipped a possible leak problem in the bud for us! I would recommend them to anyone!
