Adding siding to a home creates a unique look, as well as protecting the exterior of the home from the weather elements. Siding, such as fiber cement and HardiPlank, offers homeowners an alternative choice from typical wood siding.
In general, fiber cement siding is a mixture of cement and cellulose fibers. This hybrid siding allows homeowners to have the look of wood, but with the strength of cement for durability and protection.
HardiPlank siding is a name brand fiber cement siding company that was one of the first to provide the product. The only differences between HardiPlank and generic fiber cement siding is the selection of colors and styles, as well as warranty coverage.
All fiber cement siding is insect- and fire-resistant. In addition, it is a sustainable product. Choosing fiber cement siding negates the need for mass quantities of a wood siding product, saving trees over time.
