Fiber Cement or Vinyl: What Siding is Right for Your Kansas City Home?

Jan 05, 2018

At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we’re proud to offer both Mastic Vinyl Siding and James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding. Both products are at the top of the market when it comes to quality and durability. Both are ready to stand up to the coldest winter nights and the hottest summer days in Kansas City. Both require little to no maintenance. But only one can be chosen for your Kansas City home. So, when both options are great, which option is the right choice for you? In this post, we’ll go over the benefits of both vinyl and fiber cement siding to determine which one makes the most sense for your home.

Fiber Cement

Few people who aren’t siding contractors think “stylish” or “curb appeal” when they think of fiber cement, but James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding is one of the most beautiful replacement siding options on the market today. It has the look of real wood, with knots, ring patterns, and rich, deep color. But it lasts for decades longer than wood siding with little to no maintenance. Unlike wood, fiber cement siding does not warp, rot, or swell, and it’s non-combustible. Cement siding is 5 times thicker than vinyl, making it incredibly resistant to hail and strong winds.

All that durability and curb appeal pays off if you plan to sell your home sometime soon, too. Remodeling Magazine rated James Hardie cement siding as the siding with the greatest return-on-investment (ROI) for eight years running. James Hardie offers a 30-year non-prorated warranty and a 15-year finish warranty for materials and labor.


We offer four series of Mastic siding: Quest, Structure, Cedar Discovery, and Board and Batten. Each of these siding products come in similar wood styles, but are smoother, more durable, and lack the maintenance of wood siding. They offer a variety of styles and colors–low-gloss, premium, earthy, and woodgrain–and never need to be painted. Every vinyl siding product we offer has a Class 1(A) fire rating and Quest, Cedar Discovery, and Board and Batten come with VIP lifetime warranties.

Structure Insulated vinyl siding was rated the #1 Brand of Insulated Siding by Builders and Remodelers. That insulation will keep your home comfortable in both summer and winter and help you save hundreds on energy bills. Vinyl siding is a popular choice and sure to add value to your home. Not all vinyl siding has the same level of quality and insulation, and some brands can be rather cheap. Mastic Siding, on the other hand, is committed to excellent quality. This siding won’t warp, rot, crack, or split.

Both Mastic Siding and Hardie Siding are excellent choices, so really, it comes down to what your home needs. We’re happy to lend our expertise in helping you make the choice, as well as a quality installation to ensure you can enjoy your siding for decades to come. Contact us today for a free quote.
