When we look at siding materials, it seems as every path has it’s flaws. Vinyl cracks in the cold and warps in the heat, wood swells with moisture, stucco traps moisture and fosters rot and mold. For homeowners looking for the best siding for their home, fiber cement is the way to go.
We have to start with how James Hardie fiber cement products beat out these other options. For one, they are much more resistant to warping, cracking, rotting, and swelling. This means performance and aesthetics stay together much longer. This also means much lower maintenance, in that you won’t have to replace pieces that crack or repaint.
Since we’ve covered that the look of your Hardie products won’t fade like wood, we should also talk about the styles you can choose from. Fiber cement is made to mimic tons of styles. If you’re looking for an authentic wood look, you could try smooth or cedarmill lap boards or even shingle siding. You also have the choice of a stucco look. All styles come with a choice of 23 finishes, so when it comes to designing your home the way you really want it to look, with Hardie products, you have all the tools you need.
