Water-Resistive Siding Underlayment—a Crucial Component of Your Home’s Siding

First Coast Siding is a local expert of fiber cement siding serving Jacksonville, Florida, and the surrounding area. In addition to replacing outdated siding with highly durable James Hardie fiber cement siding, we install the siding underlayment, a water-resistive barrier that helps protect your home from moisture infiltration.

Why HardieWrap Is Important

HardieWrap acts like a protective shield against the elements. Its engineered construction involves a micro-porous material that allows moisture vapor to escape, preventing the build-up of condensation within the wall assembly. This feature is essential for maintaining a dry and healthy environment behind the siding, as trapped moisture can lead to mold, rot, and other structural issues over time. Plus, this water-resistive siding underlayment contributes to a tighter building envelope, minimizing air infiltration and heat loss. The result is a more energy-efficient home. And because HardieWrap has one of the best permeability ratings in its class, it is highly effective at preventing moisture infiltration, ensuring your home is well protected for years to come.

Learn More About Water-Resistive Siding Underlayment

Even with the most meticulously installed siding, there's always a possibility of water finding its way through seams or joints. First Coast Siding installs HardieWrap as an additional barrier against water from reaching the underlying structure and compromising its integrity. This is especially important in Jacksonville, FL, and the surrounding area, where moisture is heavy and storms are frequent in the summer months.
