Hardie Board Siding
James Hardie siding, more commonly known as Hardie Board, is one of the top siding products to use. It is an engineered product similar to LP that uses a composition of cement fibers instead of wood that is element-resistant and easily painted.
Hardie board is more durable and up to 5x thicker than vinyl siding. It easily resists damage from wind, rain, freezing temperatures, and hail, and gives homes years of protection with low maintenance.
Hardie board resists damage from extreme heat and will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire. Many insurance companies will offer a discount on coverage for homes that utilize Hardie siding.
Hardie board products are also a great way to boost the curb appeal of a home. The design possibilities are endless with James Hardie’s collection of products, profiles, and colors.
Hardie board is thicker and can better mimic various textures, meaning that if you want the aesthetic of a different siding – like wood – without any of the shortcomings, James Hardie is an excellent choice.
Hardie Board siding is a greater financial investment than vinyl siding.
The heavyweight of Hardie Board siding makes it more challenging to handle than other siding materials, so it is more difficult to install. Installation should only be done by James Hardie trained professionals to ensure the warranty stays intact.
There is some maintenance needed on Hardie Board siding after approximately 15 years. Some warranties may cover your siding’s color for 15 years, but after that, you may need to repaint it.
Introduced in the 1960s, vinyl was created as a siding alternative to aluminum and has become the most iconic and common type of siding! There are a wide and unique variety of colors, styles, and thicknesses to choose from that customers fall in love with time after time!
Vinyl siding’s budget-friendly price point attracts homeowners and rental property owners. The attractive price makes re-siding more feasible for many.
Vinyl siding doesn’t need to be repainted, giving you long-lasting color to enjoy. It is more durable than wood siding, which needs to be repainted regularly. And it’s easier to care for than cedar shake siding, which needs to be treated regularly.
With proper care, vinyl siding can last 20-40 years. It doesn’t attract insects or pests or is susceptible to moisture damage like wood siding is.
Vinyl siding comes in a variety of colors from which to choose. Homeowners select from either horizontal or vertical panels to customize their home’s look.
Vinyl can become more brittle with age and exposure to the elements. It can be damaged by wind debris, hail, or any number of other external forces and may crack, buckle and warp with changing temperatures.
Vinyl siding is predisposed to warping due to heat. This type of damage can be caused by a summer heat wave or simply sun exposure over time. Vinyl siding can even melt from direct flame or the sun’s reflection off of a nearby low-grade window. This vulnerability affects the appearance of a house, but vinyl siding can also put a home in a precarious position.
