These are two names that we have come to know and trust and we recommend both products without hesitation. Here’s a little more about these great fiber cement siding products.
Fiber Cement Siding Is More Durable than Vinyl or Wood Siding
First let’s talk about fiber cement siding vs. vinyl siding. The biggest advantage would have to be durability. Fiber cement siding is resistant to warping, sagging, and cracking due to the abuse from the elements. It is also much more durable than wood siding.
Wood may split, crack or deteriorate over time, while fiber cement siding resists weather damage and keeps its shape for a much longer time. OSB or Oriented Strand Board (also known as wood composite or engineered wood siding) consists of wood strands bonded together with resin, heat and pressure.
It is susceptible to rotting from water damage and the bottom edges can expand and split over time with exposure to wet and freezing cycles. Plus, both of these companies offer impressive warranties on their siding products.
CertainTeed Fiber Board Siding
CertainTeed is one of the nation’s largest and most respected siding manufactures with over 100 years of building products leadership. Their CedarBoard insulated siding gives the look of authentic cedar woodgrain with a built-in layer of insulation which adds warmth and sturdiness.
They also manufacture vertical siding, shake and shingle siding and trim, soffit, and accessory products. Certainteed offers a 50 year limited transferrable warranty.
James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding
You can’t go wrong with James Hardie fiber cement siding. It’s over five times thicker than vinyl. This allows for deeper grooves which create a more authentic woodgrain effect. James Hardie plank lap siding is the most popular brand of siding in America.
Furthermore, their siding is engineered for specific climates. HZ5® products are made to resist wet, freezing conditions more likely in the northern US and HZ10® products protect homes from heat, humidity and sun typically found in the southern states.
Their fiber cement siding is less expensive than wood and resists insects, water and sun. All James Hardie siding styles, from Hardie Plank to Hardie Panel, come primed or with baked-on ColorPlus technology.
