Vinyl or Fiber Cement Siding: Which is Best for Your Kansas City Home?

Consider Vinyl & Fiber Cement Siding Options for Your Kansas City Home

There are many factors to consider when looking for siding for your Kansas City home. There’s the aesthetic appeal of the home, for starters, as well as the durability. Homeowners consider the value that siding might add to their home, the energy efficiency, and, of course, the cost of the siding itself. But with all that considered, which option is the best for your home? At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we offer some of the best when it comes to vinyl siding and fiber cement siding. However, the siding that your home needs depends largely on your home.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is considered a popular siding option because of its affordability and its sleek look. However, not all vinyl siding is made of the same quality. It would be a mistake to simply order the cheapest vinyl siding and hope for more than the cheapest quality. That’s why Johnson County Siding & Window Co. works with Mastic Home Exteriors by PlyGem, a manufacturer who has been in business for over 70 years. This vinyl siding is high quality enough to resist warping, cracking, and splitting, and because it’s vinyl rather than wood, it won’t rot.

Mastic vinyl siding also looks good aesthetically. It comes in a variety of custom-made styles and options, from vertical to horizontal boards to vinyl shakes. You can add soffit and trims for the final stylish touch. There are also a number of different styles, so you have a wide variety to choose from. Some come in vibrant color, while others take on the look of wood, with stronger weather resistance. Best of all, vinyl siding — when made with high quality in mind — is virtually maintenance free.

Fiber Cement Siding

James Hardie has made quite a name for itself when it comes to its fiber cement siding. Not only does it offer classy style and deep, rich color, but it’s five times stronger than vinyl, making it one of the most weather resistant siding materials out there. If you want to protect your home from fierce storms like hail, fiber cement is the way to go. It is, however, more expensive than vinyl siding, but many homeowners see this as a worthwhile investment. Fiber cement siding also lasts longer and offers the greatest ROI of any siding.

Fiber cement siding might sound drab and dull from the name, but it comes in a variety of colors, from light and cheerful to deep and stately. There’s nothing about it that resembles cement. In fact, one of the most popular styles is for fiber cement to take on the look of wood, with woodgrain textures.
