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.

Trump ban on ‘divisive’ and ‘anti-American’ training for federal contractors has workplace diversity experts worried

Diversity and inclusion training providers are concerned recent strides in corporate America to address racial and gender disparities will take a back seat after President Donald Trump ordered restrictions on racial sensitivity training for federal contractors.

Many Chicago-area companies expanded their workplace diversity training programs earlier this year following the civil unrest resulting from George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police in May.

The topics of white privilege, systemic racism and unconscious bias have become focal points in those programs, consultants say. Now, they’re the target of an order from Trump cutting off funding to contractors who teach “divisive” and “anti-American” concepts.

Last week, Trump signed an executive order that bars federal contractors from promoting race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating in their diversity training programs. Companies could risk losing contracts if they don’t comply.

The Chicago area is home to some of the biggest federal contractors, including aerospace manufacturer Boeing and medical device maker Abbott Laboratories, which recently inked a deal with the federal government to provide 150 million rapid COVID-19 antigen tests. Neither responded to requests for comment.

Under the order, contractors are prohibited from teaching concepts that “promote divisiveness in the workplace and distract from the pursuit of excellence and collaborative achievements in public administration.”

Contractors can’t teach that the U.S. is fundamentally racist or sexist, claim members of a certain race are oppressors or put blame on a certain race or sex for past actions committed by other members of the

How To Create a Kitchen With a Soul, According to Home Design Experts


Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen may evoke the warmest emotions. After all, it’s here that people gather with family and friends, to share food and good company. It’s no wonder the kitchen is often called the heart of the home—and that it’s a key selling point, promising a great lifestyle.

But kitchens also run the risk of being cold and soulless. What’s the point in having top-notch appliances if no one actually wants to hang out and use them? Like food, a kitchen needs to have a certain depth—let’s call it soul.


“A kitchen with a soul is a unique space that provides comfort, warmth, and a sense of peace,” says Ron Woodson of Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design in Los Angeles. “These are spaces that honor one’s personal style or the original time period in which a home was built.”



A few personal touches that both move you and reflect how you live are key to achieving this effect. These design elements can really allow the kitchen’s soul to shine, and to make its effects felt throughout your home. To bring out the soul of your kitchen, try the following tips.

Use materials to tell a story

Every kitchen has a story to tell. Woodson recommends mixing different textures and patterns that complement the existing color scheme.

“We associate natural stone, wood, and other materials found in nature with soul—they add warmth and bring life to a space,” Woodson says. “Luckily, you can still get the same look of natural stone with ultradurable alternatives. For countertops and flooring, I love Dekton Laurent
