The Perks of Building with James Hardie®

Categories: Energy Efficiency, The Magnolia Blog | Posted: January 27, 2017

Of the following, what would you say are the most important to you in your new home:
Quality of construction, energy efficiency, or low maintenance? What if you could have all of those in one product? The truth of it is – you can.

James Hardie® offers a variety of products that offer all of these features combined with the bonus of making your new home even more stunning with a number of design options. James Hardie® is known for being the inventor of fiber cement board siding. The cement board, also called James Hardie® siding, is one of the industry’s most recognized names and product. James Hardie® products are unsusceptible to pests, withstand weather, resistant against rot and moisture, and (perhaps one of the most important things) it has fire-resistant qualities.

James Hardie® products are specifically Engineered for Climate® to withstand the hot, humid conditions, the sun, snow, sleet, hail, and more. James Hardie® siding resists fading, cracking, and swelling that is common with vinyl and wood products. Unlike wood, these products are highly resistant not only to mold and rot but also termites, woodpeckers, and other animals.
We all know that fire feasts on wood and will melt vinyl products, and that’s something else that makes James Hardie® products different. These products are non-combustible and will not ignite when exposed to direct fire. It’s because of these characteristics that most insurance companies offer discounts and firefighters endorse the products.


With all of these wonderful features, it’s not a surprise to learn that the Memphis area’s leading luxury new home builder, Magnolia Homes, also uses James Hardie® products on all of their new homes. But Magnolia Homes doesn’t just use James Hardie® siding, we build 100% James Hardie® homes, consisting of the siding, trim, sofit, etc. Your brand new Magnolia Home will have no wood, except for solid cedar columns and cedar accents, per plan. Instead your new home will be 100% brick and James Hardie® products – keeping your new home safe and low maintenance.

Overwhelmingly, the first place people go when they are searching for a new home is to our Floor Plans page. We understand that before you decide to move in the Memphis Area, you need to find the livability you are looking for along with the space. That’s where top Memphis Area Builder, Magnolia Homes, comes in.


We have over 60 floor plans to choose from, and a common theme that runs throughout these homes is to provide the open space and layouts you adore. Our open floor plans, complete with outdoor living spaces and large covered porches, provide that together-time you want. When you build with Magnolia Homes you’ll enjoy large gourmet kitchens that connect to entertaining areas. You never have to feel disconnected when you are preparing a meal or throwing a party. Soaring archways and vaulted ceilings provide open views and invite family members and visitors to be a part of the festivities as well as everyday living.




Windows and doors abound to provide open airy spaces that flow onto covered porches and outdoor entraining spaces. Some floor plans allow for outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and cozy comforts that make your outdoor living area seem like just another room in the house.


Bedrooms remain spacious and secluded, usually in their own wing off the main entertaining areas of the home, or tucked away upstairs. Most of our floor plans are all about bringing people together. When you need privacy you can duck into an office, or look into our options for creating private retreats. Our floor plans can be flexible with your living style. Do you want to put French doors in an area for a quieter sanctuary? No problem. We’ll work with you to make that space your own.


If you’re not sure where to start, your first line of assistance is to email or call Taylor, our New Home Specialist online. Tell her what you are looking for and she’ll help you narrow down the field of floor plans to those that best suit the community and the way you want to live.
