Full service exterior home improvement company GS Exterior Experts explains 8 crucial differences between fiber cement siding and wood siding
Deciding the best siding is one of the most important factors to a home’s look. Whether remodeling or building, it can be overwhelming with all the different options for siding. GS Exterior Experts is an exterior home improvement company specializing in siding, roofing and more for the Denver surrounding areas. Today they explain the differences between two common siding types they offer: fiber cement siding vs wood siding.
For fiber cement siding, GS Exterior Experts offers James Hardie Siding and is known as the #1 James Hardie siding specialist in Colorado. Fiber cement siding is a man-made material built with cement, sand, and cellulose fibers.
Compared to wood, James Hardie Siding is more weather resistant due to being formulated to resist rot, swelling, mold, warping and cracking. It is non-combustible and complies with ASTM E136, recognized by fire departments nationwide.
In addition, GS Exterior Experts explains how James Hardie siding is more durable than wood siding. It resists hail, windblown debris and is designed to be both heat and cold resistant. James Hardie siding uses ColorPlus Technology that resists damaging UV rays, so it is resistant to sun exposure as well.
For wood siding, GS Exterior Experts offers Woodtone RusticSeries siding. Compared to fiber cement siding, Woodtone siding allows the homeowner to enjoy the natural beauty of real wood. It can be painted or stained, yet the grain can still be seen and appreciated, allowing for rustic looks.
GS Exterior Experts’s Woodtone siding also comes in over 20 colors, which allows for the homeowner to customize their siding to suit their individual style. Their RusticSeries has the option of two-tone composite wood grain siding, allowing for more variety compared to fiber cement siding’s single tone coloring.
As sustainability is a core value of Woodtone’s business, everything from the packaging to the practices adhered to are environmentally friendly. GS Exterior Experts also explains how the Woodtone RusticSeries siding comes with a 20 year limited fade coating warranty.
Both fiber cement siding and wood siding are fine choices, and GS Exterior Experts provides both using the highest quality materials. While fiber cement siding is more durable against the elements, pests, and weather, wood siding is also very durable and can be aesthetically more pleasing to some homeowners.
Perhaps just as important as the material used is the people hired to install it. GS Exterior Experts is an award winning contractor rated 5 stars with over 243 reviews.
“Installed James Hardie siding. Hardworking, efficient, flexible crew. Highly recommend this company,” said one happy reviewer on Google Reviews.
GS Exterior Experts is currently accepting new clients for siding, windows, stone, and roofing in Denver and surrounding areas.
