When siding a new home or residing an existing house, there are a number of durable and low maintenance options available. Two of the most popular are vinyl siding and fiber cement siding. Here are some innovations that make them even more attractive.

  • Vinyl Siding: Advancements from Crane Siding include 6” and 7” wide panels that resist cupping, along with a more authentic looking trim that has a solid feel. Foam backing gives the vinyl siding and trim a solid feel while adding insulation value.
  • Fiber Cement Siding: Long known for durability and fire resistance, fiber cement siding from James Hardie is now available with a factory applied finish. The baked on coating is available in a range of colors and is guaranteed for 15 years for peeling cracking, and chipping.
