Choosing the Right Siding for Your Home

W

Hardie Board Siding vs.Vinyl Siding

hich one is right for your home? The answer depends on many factors including durability, aesthetics, maintenance, cost, and energy-efficiency. Vinyl siding became a popular choice to replace aluminum siding in the 1960’s. Constructed from PVC, it is extremely durable. Currently it is the most popular siding for homes in the United States. In the 1980’s, hardie board was introduced to the housing market. This durable product is a fiber-cement board made from sand, cement, and wood fibers.

Comparing Wear and Durability

Because vinyl siding is made of plastic, it never requires painting and is resistant to water, wind, and weather damage. However, it can be damaged, particularly because it is very thin (usually .04 to .046 inches thick). Sharp objects can puncture vinyl and as it ages, it is vulnerable to becoming brittle with exposure to weather. When this happens, it becomes much weaker, and can be damaged by hail or wind-blown debris. This type of siding is treated with fire retardant, however that only slows down the rate at which it can burn if exposed to fire or another heat source. Vinyl siding can easily warp due to heat and sun exposure. Vinyl siding usually comes with a 25-year warranty. Like real wood siding, Hardie board is denser (usually more than a quarter of an inch thick), which makes it much more durable than vinyl. Composed of cement-like materials and wood fibers, it is stronger than vinyl and much less susceptible to wind and damage from weather exposure. Despite its strength, intense impacts can cause it to crack. It does not burn, warp or melt when exposed to heat which provides a significant advantage over vinyl siding. Hardie board does not become brittle with age and typically offers a 30 to 50-year warranty.

Curb Appeal

Maintenance

Unlike wood shingles or siding which require regular painting and treatment, both vinyl siding and hardie board are relatively maintenance-free. Vinyl siding does have an advantage when it comes to maintenance. It will not disintegrate or rot over time. It never needs to be painted, and cleaning vinyl is as easy as using a garden hose to wash off any accumulated dust and dirt. However, hardie board requires painting and re-caulking every five to ten years to prevent deterioration.

Cost

There is no doubt about it, the advantages of hardie board come with a cost. Vinyl siding is far less expensive, both for the product and the labor installation costs. Vinyl is much easier to cut and install. Hardie board is heavier and requires more installers. Because it is harder to cut, it also requires specialized training and tools to install.

Energy Efficiency

Neither vinyl nor hardie board offers much insulation on their own, however vinyl can be purchased with built-in insulation, giving it an advantage in energy-efficiency. This insulation can help keep your home cooler in the summer months and warmer in the winter. As you can see, when deciding between vinyl siding and hardie board, there are many factors to consider. What may be important to you may not be important to your neighbors. Vinyl siding and hardie board are both worthwhile investments as they preserve the look of your home, increase its curb appeal, and provide you with years and years of comfort. Before you make a decision, contact the experts at Morgan Exteriors, Inc. and we will walk you through the process and determine which option is best for you and your home.

The thickness and weight of vinyl and hardie board play a role in the aesthetics each offers. Hardie board is thick and has deep embossing that looks more like real wood than the texture of vinyl siding. It is available in many colors, textures and trims to match any style, which is important if you are looking for a realistic or specific appearance for your home.

Lawn &

Garden

SEPTEMBER Plantings & Lawn Maintenance Plan to beautify your landscape with these tips for what to plant in SEPTEMBER and lawn maintenance measures! Excerpts are taken from http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu courtesy of University of Florida IFAS Extension.

What to Plant

Annuals/Bedding plants: If summer beds need refreshing, try ageratum, coleus, celosia, zinnia, and wax begonia for color into fall. Bulbs: Add color, texture, and pattern to the garden with the many varieties of elephant's ear that are available. Herbs: Plant herbs that tolerate the warm temperatures of early fall, such as Mexican tarragon, mint, rosemary, and basil. Vegetables: It is hot, but numerous cool-season (as well as warm-season) crops can be planted.

What to Do

Lawn problems: Continue to monitor the lawn for signs of insect damage. Fall armyworms, chinch bugs, mole crickets, and sod webworms are still active this month. Perennials and bulbs: Divide and replant perennials and bulbs that have grown too large or need rejuvenation. Add organic matter to new planting areas and monitor water needs during establishment. Citrus: Fertilize citrus with a balanced fertilizer either this month or in October. If the weather has been rainy, do not use soluble nitrogen as rains will leach it from the soil too quickly. Vegetable gardens: Prepare the fall vegetable garden if not done in August. Using transplants from your local garden center will get the garden off to a fast start, but seeds provide a wider variety from which to choose.
