Comparing Fiber Cement Siding to the Competition
Vinyl siding is a petroleum-based product that is essentially plastic on your home. It can warp and even melt due to excessive heat whereas fiber cement is flame retardant. In addition, vinyl siding colors are highly susceptible to fading and can never be repainted whereas fiber cement can last up to 100 years and may only need to be repainted every 30.
Fiber cement offers the look and feel of real wood without the maintenance. Because wood is highly susceptible to moisture, it often times rots and decays over time. It also has a much longer paint cycle which can save you thousands of dollars in maintenance costs versus wood.
Stucco may look great on your home but unfortunately it is designed for dry climates like Arizona and New Mexico. In PA, NJ and DE, stucco can crack and break apart due to the changing of the seasons and moisture in the air. Hardie Siding has specifically designed products for the Northeast Climate called H5 Zone siding. This ensures a long lasting and durable install every single time!
