Vinyl & Aluminum Siding
James Hardie Siding
Hardie board is a special siding material that uses cement fibers to create a more durable and attractive product. Cement is combined with sand, water, and cellulose wood fibers to create a material particularly suited to protect home exteriors. Hardie board is an innovative product, but it’s not new or unproven. It’s built to last.
Vinyl siding is durable and available in a ton of textures and colors. Since the color is throughout the vinyl, dings, damages and scrapes aren’t as obvious. Advanced production techniques can create siding that does a great job of resembling wood-grain or stone. As well as being lightweight, vinyl can, in most cases, be installed directly over existing materials. This makes it a good retrofit option. And being easy to handle, vinyl installation can be done quickly, which cuts down on labor costs.
Insulated Vinyl Siding
Relatively new to the market, insulated vinyl siding includes a layer of broadened polystyrene foam. Insulated vinyl is one of the products that will help a home achieve Energy Star qualification.
