What is the difference between Linea Weatherboard and James Hardie Weatherboard?

 

They are both James Hardie products, but it's not clear to me what the difference is.

 

Thanks

Linea is 16mm thick and comes in 3 widths. Hardies w/b is 7.5mm comes in a number of widths and textures. Linea tends to be used more these days. A lot of our sales for the 7.5mm would be for repairs to existing older dwellings

@dazhann other than the sizing what are the differences? Linea has a 25 year warranty vs 15 for Hardies, are they made from different material?

No same fibre cement type product. I think the thickness is what increases the warranty for the Linea.For new builds Linea is used way more than the 7.5mm product.

Absolutely, and it's because 7.5mm is very easy to damage. We wouldn't specify anything below 9mm for a cladding near where people will be.
