Low Maintenance Vinyl and Fiber Cement Siding for Your Home

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.

  1. I am unable to find the insulated vinyl siding you recommend. Exteriorportfoliio.com is not pulling up distributors for me.

    My house has cheap vinyl siding just nailed to the studs. Can this insulated vinyl be installed the same way???
