Hardie Siding Installation - how cold is too cold?


Hi all, my contractor is pressuring me to let them replace my siding as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer here in MN (I'm guessing as soon as its 20-30 degrees). This is a hail damage claim. They will be using James Hardie siding. Are there concerns I should have with this product being installed in cold weather? In general, cold weather jobs are often rushed and it seems more corners are cut when the workers are trying to keep their hands warm.

Thanks,
Mark

Hardie Siding Installation - how cold is too cold?


the hardie panel dosent have much thermal movement to it so that can basicaly be installed without too much regard to temperature.
That said however the trim,depending on the material and caulk can be more difficult in very cold weather
