Can James Hardie® Fiber Cement Siding Be Installed in Minnesota During the Winter?

It’s a misconception that siding contractors here in Minnesota take a break when the cold weather hits.  Exterior remodeling isn’t done in the winter, right?  Wrong; our crews work all year round.  And while certain siding materials can have issues when they are installed in the winter, other siding such as fiber cement from The James Hardie Company® does fine in cold-weather installation when the manufacturer’s instructions are followed.  Of course, that’s true regardless of the season.

A siding product is only as good as its installation, and for it to be the best, your siding contractor needs to stick to what the manufacturer specifies.  And that’s how our crews are trained – spring, summer, fall, OR winter.  In fact, we are a Hardie Preferred Siding Installation Contractor for the Minneapolis area, so that is your assurance that we do things the Hardie way.

With James Hardie fiber cement siding, there is no wrong time to install it.  The right time for fiber cement siding installation is when a home needs it.  And we find that some homeowners in the Twin Cities area actually prefer the work be done in the winter.

  • One of the big advantages is that most landscaping has died back or become dormant, so people working next to your house are less likely to disturb foundation plantings. And the ground is frozen so you don’t need to be concerned about siding crews messing up your lawn.
  • The kids are back in school and the weather for most outdoor entertaining is over, so you should have no issues with your siding installation process interfering with your social plans.
  • Siding companies are less busy in the winter, so you’ll more than likely be able to get just the time slot you want.
  • Getting it done now means you can enjoy a more comfortable home this winter and look forward to the warmer seasons ahead, not having to contemplate exterior remodeling when the weather is nice.
