Dependable Construction & Remodeling has a proven track record in customer service and product selection. Before committing to siding, consider the following items:
~ Cost: Vinyl siding is cheaper and easier to install. If saving money is a priority, vinyl is definitely the way to go. Fiber siding is generally more expensive and requires a professional siding contractor to come in and get the job done. That being said, Fiber Cement siding boasts better quality material.
~ Durability: Fiber Cement siding can last 30-50 years! Vinyl siding, on the other hand, often becomes brittle due to exposure to the elements. Most vinyl siding has a maximum 25-year warranty.
~ Maintenance: Fiber Cement siding will need to be painted and caulked every 5-10 years. While this may seem bothersome it does provide flexibility and the opportunity to change the exterior paint color of a home. Vinyl siding never needs painting, but will require replacing when damaged. With vinyl, color change is not an option, so choose wisely.
~ Eco-Friendliness: Fiber Cement siding, derived from a wood pulp and cement mixture, is certainly more Eco-friendly; however vinyl siding can be purchased with insulation attached upping its R-value.
