CHICAGO, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- James Hardie Building Products Inc., the leader in fiber cement siding, and Angie's List, a verified consumer review and online marketplace, today announced a new strategic relationship.
The strategic relationship formed after a voluntary survey of Angie's List members ranked James Hardie® siding and trim products No. 1 for industry-leading quality, durability and curb appeal. An independent party conducted the survey in November 2015.
"We're proud to say that our products pass the test of one of the most trusted review sites in the country," said Sean Gadd, chief marketing officer at James Hardie. "Our new status as the exclusive siding manufacturer with Angie's List is a big advantage for contractors looking to grow their business with James Hardie products."
James Hardie Contractor Alliance™ program members on Angie's List will receive unique benefits when Angie's List members select James Hardie siding for their homes. Service providers will be able to increase their exposure by joining the James Hardie-sponsored online marketplace and taking advantage of the exclusive advertising discounts that comes with being a provider.
"By bringing together two premier brands in the remodeling industry, this strategic alliance will be a tremendous resource for James Hardie service providers as well as Angie's List members who are re-siding their homes," Gadd said. "Our siding not only stands the test of time, but also provides homeowners with a beautiful aesthetic for the exterior of their home."
As a result of the newly-formed relationship, Angie's List members can now enjoy exclusive offers on several types of James Hardie products and have direct access to locate a professional James Hardie product installer.
"We continue to deliver increased value to our members by providing them with special offers from some of the country's best manufacturers in the home improvement industry," said Angie's List founder Angie Hicks. "We are pleased to add James Hardie to our manufacturer showcase."
