James Hardie Siding Over Vinyl Siding
There are many reasons as to why you might want to update the exterior of your home to vinyl siding. Maybe you are looking for a change of color or looking for an affordable way to increase your home equity. Whatever the reason, vinyl siding is a common option for homeowners on Long Island and Brooklyn because of its low cost and ease of maintenance.
What you may not know is “Vinyl” is just a fancy term contractors use for plastic! By choosing vinyl, you are choosing plastic as your home’s first line of defense from the weather and fire. Are you really willing to take that risk?
With over 20 years of experience, Good Guys Contracting recommends using James Hardie Fiber Cement siding. It has proven to be a better value for you long term because it’s engineered to withstand these elements.
Benefits of James Hardie vs. Vinyl Siding
We understand that vinyl siding has its perks, but compared to James Hardie siding, it doesn’t stand up!
James Hardie siding is a cement board siding made of the highest quality ingredients to bind and strengthen the cement mixture to your house whereas vinyl adheres to the side of your house.
Our James Hardie Products will last countless years because they are specifically designed to withstand all weather conditions such as hurricanes and snow storms and their James Hardie ColorPlus Technology makes them UV resistant. Typically, vinyl siding will dent and bend from wind debris and warp in the sun. James Hardie siding is more than five times as thick as vinyl. Over time, vinyl siding will break down and you will need replacement much more frequently.
If there is a fire in your home, you can trust James Hardie to withstand the blaze. It is fire resistant, with a flame-spread index of 0 whereas vinyl siding can catch on fire and even spread the fire to other areas of your home.
