Why James Hardie?

James Hardie is a multi-billion dollar business started in Australia. James Hardie has pioneered the fiber cement siding industry since the mid 1980’s. 12 Bravo Construction Companies LLC has a close relationship with our James Hardie regional representative.
We started offering James Hardie installation since 2016 installing completing 2-3 homes per month. Which gathered the eye of our local suppliers and the James Hardie regional representative. 
Many contractors may offer James Hardie but only a select few install it to the recommendations  set by the manufacture. Even fewer contractors can install James Hardie and pass a windstorm certification for your insurance.

James Hardie Best Practices

12 Bravo Construction Companies LLC employs a field operations manager and a project manager that will insure proper installation. If a wind storm certificate is required we will order all necessary engineering inspections. During tear off we look for any damaged or rotten studs. In most cases we are able to fix minor issues at no additional cost. We will ensure  that the maximum allowable spacing between studs is 24″ on center.

Once we complete this process we will install the recommended 7/16″ OSB. This helps reduce waving in the siding once installed. Then we will install the moisture barrier, tape the windows, and put in all recommended flashing. Then the siding goes up. Throughout this process an engineer will stop by on occasions and take the measurements and photos he requires to submit your WPI-8 for the certificate.

When we get the green light from the engineer we will start painting. We will always prime the hardie then paint. This help prevent shadows due to the siding soaking up the paint.
