Vinyl Siding vs Fiber Cement Siding

When it comes to replacing your siding, there are a variety of options to choose from. The standard of the North American siding industry has long been vinyl siding, and for good reason. It is customizable, available in a wide array of colors, and economical. However, there are other siding options that have been gaining in popularity lately, with one of the premier options being James Hardie’s Fiber Cement siding. Both options are great in their own right, but they each other specific advantages over the other. Let’s explore the differences between the two options here:


One of the greatest benefits that vinyl siding provides is it’s low price point. If you’re trying to replace your home’s siding on a budget, vinyl siding is simply the best option. It is widely manufactured and cheap to make, which makes it an affordable option. Fiber cement is a bit more expensive than vinyl siding but it is makes up for it’s high cost of installation in other ways.


When you’re trying to decide between different siding options, one of the most important factors to consider it which option will keep your home protected. If you’re looking for an option that will keep your home protected from the elements, you can’t go wrong with either option. While vinyl siding is water resistant, whereas poorly constructed fiber cement siding can absorb water, both options are completely viable and will keep your home well protected from nearly anything Mother Nature has to offer.


If you’re interested in installing a siding material that will boost your home’s curb appeal, both options are great! Vinyl siding has long been the most popular siding material in North America, which means it is widely manufactured, and that has led to a wide array of style options for homeowners to choose from. On the other hand, James Hardie is available in a wide array of colors, ensuring that no matter what color you’re looking for on your home’s exterior, James Hardie has the perfect solution for your home’s exterior. If you have a particular color in mind, James Hardie is going to be your best bet, not to mention that their fiber cement boards are molded from real cedar boards, helping to further their beauty & curb appeal.
