Your siding is an essential component of your home as it adds character to your exterior, increases your energy efficiency and protects your home from the elements. More often than not, your neighbors and visitors would first notice your home’s siding so it’s important to keep it looking beautiful to create a great first impression. With that said, one of the best siding options on the market is the James Hardie® HardiePlank® siding.
What Is HardiePlank® Siding?
HardiePlank siding is a proprietary siding material that brings both the benefits of the most popular siding choices on the market today, which is vinyl and wood siding. Vinyl siding materials are highly moisture-resistant and require minimal upkeep while wood siding is known for its durabiliy and energy-efficient properties. HardiePlank is made of cellulose fiber, Portland cement, sand, water and additives that prolong the siding’s lifespan.
Compared to vinyl siding, HardiePlank siding is considerably cheaper in the long run since it requires minimal maintenance and provides superior energy efficiency for your home which helps you cut down on utility costs. This makes it a worthwhile investment recommended by many siding contractors across the United States.
While HardiePlank siding shares similar benefits to vinyl siding, it definitely comes out on top in terms of durability since it’s five times thicker than vinyl. It’s incredibly resilient against cracks, dents and weathering. Since it has Boston cement mixed into it, this prevents the siding from appearing warped and saggy, which keeps it looking good as new for the years to come.
