Hardie siding, also known as fiber cement siding, is a type of siding made from a mixture of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers. It is known for its durability and resistance to fire, rot, pests, and weather conditions such as hurricanes and storms. It also requires little maintenance and can be painted in any colour.
Vinyl siding, on the other hand, is a type of siding made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic. It is known for its low cost, ease of installation, and resistance to fading, rot, pests, and weather conditions. It also requires little maintenance.
Both types of siding can be a good option for homeowners looking for a durable, low-maintenance, and cost-effective siding option. Hardie siding can be a better option for those looking for a more natural and traditional look, while vinyl siding can be a good option for those looking for a more modern look or a wider range of colours.
