Thanks for your question. Warping is not a problem if installation methods are followed as per the manufacturer's installation specifications, e.g. Panels fastened every 16" vertically and horizontal, propers fasteners are used and correct substrate installation is followed.

These panels are Jame Hardie panels (see http://www.jameshardie.com/homeowner/products_siding_hardiepanelSiding.py) and are engineered for our climate. We were thoroughly impressed with the in person support we received from Janes Hardie as their representative visited us on site and provided us with an installation overview. I would suspect they would do the same for your builder. We purchased the panels and aluminum trim from Convoy building supply, a local building products supplier (branches across Canada). James Hardie has a dealer locator on their website and they have installation manuals posted as well.

Best wishes to you on your project!
