Giving Your Home a Face Lift with Vinyl or Hardie Plank Siding Installation

Your home’s siding is like the first layer of defense. It protects what’s on the inside from weather and the elements.

But over time, your siding will deteriorate. Wood siding breaks down and requires consistent maintenance through painting. Old vinyl siding begins to crack and fade with age.

As you think about your next home improvement project, take a look at your siding. It could be the very thing that needs addressing most.

Here’s What New Siding Can Do for Your Home

We recommend most homeowners install either vinyl siding or Hardie Plank siding. Each can improve your home’s exterior look and longevity, but there are key differences between the products.

Let’s cover vinyl siding first.

Upgrading Your Home with Vinyl Siding

New vinyl siding will make your home look better and reduce maintenance. It’s easier to clean and won’t rot. It’s also resistant to pest damage, like termites.

Installing vinyl siding means a longer life for the exterior of your home. Vinyl is tough and can withstand weather conditions without breaking down.

You can be confident that the color you choose will remain vibrant for years. Unfortunately, painted wood siding tends to fade, especially if one side of your house is exposed to the sun for extended periods. And if vinyl siding is dirty from tree residue or mold, you can easily clean it with a pressure washer or even a water hose and brush.

What is Hardie Plank Siding?

James Hardie Plank siding, or Hardie Plank siding, as it’s often called, is an alternative to traditional sidings like wood or vinyl.

It’s made out of fiber cement, and when installed correctly, it will not fail or rot.

Instead of being painted, Hardie Plank panels have two options: option one is pre-primed Hardie boards, or option two, ColorPlus.

We recommend the pre-primed boards because it’s a much faster installation time, meaning you get to enjoy your home’s new look sooner!

There will always be maintenance with any home veneer, but with Hardie Plank, the upkeep isn’t as extensive. There is a limited 15-year warranty on the product as well.

The Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding for Your Home

James Hardie fiber cement isn’t your typical siding. Instead, it’s engineered for climate resistance so that it can hold up during severe weather.

It’s a home improvement investment that will instantly make your home look better. Don’t be surprised if you have people stopping by asking what you’ve done to the place!

You can choose from various Hardie board siding styles like traditional lap siding, board and batten, and a shake look.

There are many textures available, and all styles can be utilized together in different areas of your home, along with different colors for accent walls. If you want something a little more modern, you can choose smooth siding.

Less maintenance time is one of the best features of Hardie Plank siding.

Hardie Plank products are easier to keep clean than most traditional vinyl and wood products. So, you won’t spend your weekends with a pressure washer and cleaning solutions to keep your home in excellent condition. Instead, it’s easy to clean, simply needing a little water washdown.
