Home siding has come a long way. It is now more durable and versatile than ever, and it is evolving in its technology. Bordner Installation works with two main kinds of siding: vinyl and fiber cement. But what are the differences between the two? Which type will work best for you and your home?
Vinyl siding tends to be a popular choice for its cost-effectiveness and resistance to weather damage. It comes in a variety of colors and is easy to install. Vinyl is great for busy homeowners, as it requires little or no maintenance. When Bordner installs your vinyl siding, a lifetime limited warranty is included, covering the siding, parts and fade protection.
Fiber cement siding is a step up from vinyl. Like vinyl siding, fiber cement is a durable and low-maintenance material. However, what sets this apart from vinyl is that fiber cement can mimic wood, stucco or masonry, making it the most versatile of siding choices. Also, the durability is superb, with the ability to withstand hurricane-force winds and drastic fluctuations in temperature. Fiber cement siding is also resistant to UV rays and wood-boring insects such as termites. Best of all, this top siding is flame-resistant.
