Two Decades of James Hardie Siding Experience
At Canes Exteriors, we are absolutely in love with James Hardie siding, because it’s head and shoulders above the competition and it’s not even close! There are so many different colors and styles to choose from that James Hardie allows our clients to receive the design they dreamed of without compromising on the quality of the materials.
One of the most important factors to your siding project is the quality of the installers. Not to brag, but we are frankly the best and most knowledgeable James Hardie contractors in the Kansas City Metro. Canes Exteriors was founded by TWO former James Hardie manufacturer reps. We have nearly 20 years of combined experience working directly for the manufacturer. Those years were spent being the LOCAL EXPERT when it comes to James Hardie. We trained ALL of the Hardie contractors in the area, and we were the experts that those contractors called when they had a question about a product!
The work we do for you is unparalleled in terms of quality and efficiency.
We understand the importance of having your home functional, so we do our best to finish your James Hardie siding project as soon as possible.
Replacing your home’s siding is often more expensive than people tend to think. Some clients budget for replacing just the single front wall of their house, and then call us to replace the back three sides at a later date when their budget allows.
Whole Home Simple
Homes come in all shapes and sizes. The cost of your James Hardie siding project is based on the number of exterior walls that need new siding, and the products that you choose. Fewer walls and using only Hardie Plank siding can help reduce the overall cost of the project.
Whole Home Complex
There are almost an unlimited number of options for your siding, and the pricing reflects this. Some clients have bigger homes that have multiple levels. They also want to incorporate different styles like board and batten or Hardie® Shingle, as well as different colors of siding, all to achieve their dream exterior.

How is James Hardie siding made?
Another big reason that James Hardie is the #1 brand of siding in North America involves its base materials. Fiber cement is a mix of portland cement, cellulose fiber (fancy word for high-quality wood pulp), sand and water. Since this siding compound is mostly cement, it will not burn, woodpeckers and insects stay away from it, and it doesn’t rot! It’s simply the best product available and the most low-maintenance solution for our clients.
What is the return on investment with James Hardie siding?
You can expect to get a great return on your investment when you choose James Hardie siding. According to the 2021 Cost vs Value report put out by Remodeler Magazine, Kansas City residents can expect to get a better than 71% return on their investment! That’s one of the highest ROIs for any home improvement project.
James Hardie has the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval!
James Hardie spends over $20 million annually on research and development for product innovation. Since 2013, Hardie® Plank lap siding has held the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. For more than a century, the Good Housekeeping Seal has been a symbol of reliability that consumers trust when making big decisions, like choosing home siding.
The seal is a sought-after mark of quality and is granted only after a product’s rigorous evaluation. The engineers from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute evaluated Hardie Plank lap siding for fade-, weather-, water- and fire-resistance using state-of-the-art equipment. James Hardie has its own rigorous testing process, but it is always gratifying to receive this seal of approval from a third party.
James Hardie has earned the endorsement of other trusted industry experts, such as:
- This Old House gave Hardie Plank lap siding their “Best Building Product Made in America” endorsement.
- Money magazine also singled out Hardie Plank lap siding as a “Great Value”.
- James Hardie made the Professional Builder Top 100 list for providing top building materials and products.
