Fibre cement siding is becoming one of the most popular siding choices in North America. In fact, HardiePlank fibre cement siding can be found on over 4 million homes. Estate Exteriors in Edmonton are siding contractors that offer fibre cement siding by HardiePlank. They share why you should choose this type of siding for your home:
It’s long-lasting, resistant to the elements, and easy to clean.
HardiePlank siding is built tough. It can stand up to wind, hail, rain, and snow and is an investment you can count on. Fibre cement siding will not rot and is resistant to mould and mildew. It is also resistant to insects and other pests, unlike wood siding. Fibre cement siding is also fire resistant, which means it won’t contribute to combustion in the case of a house fire. Vinyl siding, for example, essentially feeds the flames because it’s made of petroleum products and wood is highly combustible.
To keep your siding looking like new, simply wash it annually with a garden hose or pressure washer. While the paint can fade in the sun after many years, you won’t have to worry about the same maintenance commitment you would with wood siding.
It looks like real wood.
One of the main reasons why fibre cement siding is so popular is because it looks like real wood. It is manufactured using embossed texturing, to give it an authentic wood grain look. This wood grain breaks up the flat surface to give it a rich look that you can’t achieve with vinyl or aluminum siding. Like wood planks, it is thicker than other siding choices. A HardiePlank is close to half an inch thick, where a plank of vinyl siding can be as thin as 0.035 inches thick.
It is available in a range of colours and designs.
You can get your siding in virtually any colour you can imagine, but most homeowners stick with neutral or natural tones. If you change your mind, HardiePlank siding can be painted easily to the colour of your choice. Vinyl siding cannot be painted so easily.
You can also get a variety of different siding types with fibre cement siding. Choose from regular planks, shakes, shingles, and a range of exterior decorative trims, gables, fascia, and other architectural elements. Designing your home’s exterior will be fun, and Estate Exteriors is there to help.
It has a good ROI.
Fibre cement siding, according to this cost vs. value report, has a 77.6% return on investment. According to the statistics, you can spend $17,000 on your siding replacement and expect to get over $13,000 back at resale, or added to the overall value of your home. Add that to a more attractive curb appeal, and you’ll see that HardiePlank siding is a good choice for investment savvy homeowners.
