When it comes to siding, there are many brands and materials. Today, the most common options are fiber cement siding and vinyl siding. The best replacement siding is one that protects your home, that you love the look of and fits your budget.
Vinyl Vs. Fiber Cement
Without question, vinyl siding is the most popular siding type. It’s affordable and today’s products look more like real wood than ever before. Plus, some vinyl siding has built in insulation, or R-value, which will help with your home’s heating and cooling costs
Fiber cement siding and vinyl siding have a few things in common. Both offer the benefit of very little maintenance. Rinsing them off once or twice a year is about all you’ll need to do. You won’t need to worry about pest infestations with either product. They both also look great and come in many colors and styles.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of fiber cement siding over vinyl siding is that it stands up to wind and hail unlike just about any other siding material. It won’t dent from hail or the errant baseball hit into the side of the home. You’ll also find that it comes in vertical and horizontal styles that are easily mixed and matched. Plus, it lasts longer than other siding materials.
