OK so that’s done, what’s my best course of action?
Fiber cement siding has quickly become the fastest growing home siding material in the past decade. While vinyl siding still dominates the U.S. market, it's steadily losing shares to fiber cement, stucco and brick, according to a recent study by building industry researchers at Freedonia Group, Inc.
As the demand for fiber cement siding continues to climb, composites, like fiber cement, is now the new go-to product, having been on the market long enough to have solid testing and a track record that consumers can be confident with. Incredible durability, a beautiful array of low-maintenance colors that don’t appeal to woodpeckers, backed with excellent warranties it’s the next consideration in defending your home from its surrounding wildlife.
Whether it’s a beautiful bird, or pesky squirrels gnawing on your home’s exteriors, Ted Swanson, President of Trinity Exteriors recommends James Hardie fiber cement siding, which includes HardiePlank. “It’s technologically advanced when it comes to siding products and is my favorite because it looks like wood, comes in the latest color trends and rich hues, while remaining virtually maintenance-free with a great warranty,” said Swanson. “Besides the cosmetic and durability aspect, it’s also rot-proof, fire rated and resistant to wood-boring insects” added Kevin Hanson, Insurance & Restoration Consultant.
And what’s the Cost?
While Vinyl is still a paint free option to renewing your home’s exterior, vinyl can cost between $400 and $600 a square (1 square equal 100 square feet) and fiber cement is $900 to $1,200. At first glance, it seems steeper in price but weigh the odds. Your typical Woodpecker can do anywhere from $300 to $1000 in damage per incident, and vinyl is not always fool proof. When you compare the advancements, and the warranties, as well as the technological strength against future storms, aging, and insect possibilities, you’ll see why more and more American homes are requesting James Hardie fiber cement as their smarter option.
