At Buford General Contractors, we will walk you through the options, help you choose the best siding for your project and take care of the repair or installation promptly and efficiently.
A Look at the Options
There was a time when wood was the only material people felt comfortable using for siding material. Then came aluminum siding. A new material, James Hardie, was introduced in the 1950s, and siding technology has been evolving ever since. Our professionals are experienced with the repair and installation of many kinds of siding, including:
- James Hardie
- LP SmartSide
LP (Louisiana Pacific) SmartSide has gained in popularity because of its strength and outstanding moisture protection. Made of cement board, James Hardie siding contains no paper facing nor gypsum, so it also repels moisture as well as mold. Stucco, made from sand and lime, is favored by homeowners because of its versatility; it can be painted and embellished for unique results.
Cost and Maintenance Considerations
When it comes to cost, building size is among the first things to consider in choosing siding material. Its low cost, in fact, is one reason why stucco is so popular. In comparing materials, you will find that James Hardie siding will be less expensive to install than wood. Wood, however, is very durable and because it is biodegradable, environmentally friendly. It does require repainting, of course, which is where James Hardie has an edge, along with its affordability. LP SmartSide is also quite affordable and James Hardie enjoys long-term durability.
