Our Hardieplank® History
With 25 years of experience installing HardiePlank®, Superior Exterior Systems have probably performed more Hardie Plank installations on homes in Portland and Vancouver than any other siding contractors.
Back in 1999, the engineers at James Hardie invited us to a tour and training at their main facility. This was an incredible honor for us. Ask any other siding company to show you pictures of them at the factory and they wont be able to - but we can!
James Hardie are understandably secretive about their manufacturing techniques. They simply don't want their competitors to know how they make their fiber cement so durable.Without being too specific, HardiPlank® is made from the following: fibers, Portland cement, water, and sand. It cannot rot like LP siding often does. Hardie Plank is the most used and common type of fiber cement siding in the Portland and Vancouver metro areas. Superior Exterior Systems is always looking for the most weather resistant materials and are pleased to recommend Hardie Plank siding as an excellent premium solution in our demanding NorthWestern climate. HardiePlank® comes in many different styles and options to compliment homes of any age and design.
Hardie ColorPlus®Colorplus® is Hardieplank® that is pre-painted at the factory. It comes with an impressive 15 year paint warranty. This is in addition to the 30 year material warranty. You can find out more on our Hardie Color Plus page.
Hardieplank® Vs. Budget Options
Superior Exterior Systems only offers the highest grade of Hardie Plank siding, not the lower grades like so many others. That's because we know what lasts. Good siding is a lifetime investment: it does not make financial sense to choose a budget option that will let you down and need to be repaired or replaced.

Together we'll find exactly the right materials, style, color, trim and accents for you and your home.
