Keep reading to find out why we prefer it so highly, and what it can do for your home.

How HardiPlank stacks up against the competition

Before HardiPlank came around, you had three main options, wood, aluminum, and vinyl. Let’s see how they compare:

  • Wood Siding: Wood siding is naturally very attractive. It has an organic-looking grainy texture that highlights its beauty. Wood is also very strong. It can last for a while, but only with proper care. Out of the three traditional types of siding, wood is the easiest to paint.
  • Aluminum Siding: Well, it’s cheap, so there is that. Unfortunately, aluminum is also very fragile Just leaning against your home might cause an unsightly dent. Aluminum requires extensive preparation if you plan on painting it.
  • Vinyl: Vinyl is fairly popular. It’s lightweight, and it can last longer than wood. Vinyl siding doesn’t take paint very well, and it can warp and bubble.

The benefits of HardiPlank siding

HardiPlank is a fiber-cement product. IT’s extremely strong, which makes it resistant to warping or buckling. This is especially important here in the Pacific Northwest, as rain and wind can compromise regular siding.

HardiPlank is available in multiple styles and textures, such as shingles, staggered singles, regular panels, and more. If you want a beach house look, you can have it. Looking for something more traditional? They’ve got it. This product line is available in several different beautiful shades. On the off chance that you find that it doesn’t come in a color you like, HardiPlank is simple to paint. The finish can last for up to 15 years.

If you’re into saving money, HardiPlank is ideal for you. It’s energy-efficient, which means that it’s more ecologically sound and that using the siding can save you money on your monthly heating and cooling bills.
