Did you know that Chattanooga Exteriors is the only James Hardie Elite Preferred Installer in Chattanooga?

What does this mean for you and your Hardie siding project?

It means that we have received the necessary training and experience to be able to expertly install your James Hardie siding and trim, specific to our area (or our Hardie Zone). Each Hardie Zone (around the country) has a slightly different set of installation standards, mainly due to the difference in climate from place to place. From installation of our specialized HardieWrap weather barrier to siding and trim installation you can rest assured that our skilled installers know the ins and outs of James Hardie products and installation techniques.

Here’s what you need to know about our Elite Preferred Installation status…

In order to maintain our Elite Preferred Installer status with James Hardie, we continually have to prove that our installers and/or project managers possess the necessary skills and expertise – in order to sustain Hardie’s highest recommendation. Here’s how we prove it…

  • During our training, our work was inspected to ensure the highest level of quality and that James Hardie’s high standards were met
  • We must maintain an install average of at least 90% Hardie Trim on all of the resides that we complete
  • We are required to complete at least six (6) Hardie ColorPlus reside jobs per year
  • Over the past year, we’ve completed roughly 70 Hardie ColorPlus jobs
  • We have more experience with a wider variety of Hardie materials and products than any other Hardie siding installation company in our area
  • We have more experience with prefinished ColorPlus Hardie products – a type of siding which requires more skill and expertise to install
  • During the past four years of membership with Guild Quality, we have submitted our completed jobs to Guild Quality for follow-up related purposes
  • Guild Quality asks our customers to complete a customer satisfaction survey, at the end of their project, in order to ensure accountability and satisfaction, relating to: installation, product performance, product value, job-site cleanliness, employee conduct, professionalism, etc.
  • We also submit our completed jobs to James Hardie, so that they can track our installation performance and GuildQuality customer satisfaction status
