HardiePlank fiber cement versus vinyl siding
While both HardiePlank siding and vinyl siding can mimic the look of natural siding, Hardiplank bears the closest resemblance to wood. Both the manufacturing and installation process of HardiePlank siding is designed to allow for slight irregularities and surface luster that matches wood products. The process of making and disposing of HardiePlank fiber cement siding is eco-friendly since the panels are primarily made of wood paste, whereas vinyl requires the use of fossil fuels.
Both materials are durable options, but HardiePlank siding has one disadvantage: it absorbs moisture. While moisture accumulation is something to keep in mind, Hardiplank comes with unbeatable warranties to ease any concerns and is repaired more easily than vinyl.
If you’re most concerned with a natural appearance, better curb appeal, eco-friendliness or fire-resistance, HardiePlank siding is the best choice.
If you’re looking for a siding option that’s more affordable and available with a layer of energy-saving insulation, look into our vinyl house siding.
