Numerous factors give the edge to vinyl siding

For homeowners contemplating replacement of their home siding or new home construction, material choice is a critical decision that can impact how one feels about their house for years to come.

The most popular home siding material is vinyl siding, which was first introduced in the 1960s and has evolved into a superior exterior cladding material over aluminum siding and other products, with many color choices and styles that can fit the aesthetic of any home. Another house siding material is fiber cement, which is more typically associated as being a replacement for wood.

Vinyl siding didn’t become America’s most popular home siding material by accident; its overall low cost, ease of installation, minimal maintenance and long-term beauty and durability make it a favorite choice among installers and homeowners who would prefer to spend their time and money in other ways.

ProVia’s Super Polymer vinyl siding provides a better alternative to consumer-grade exterior cladding materials, including other brands of vinyl siding and fiber cement (also known as Hardie® Plank or Hardie board).

ProVia’s professional-class, super polymer vinyl siding comes in a number of siding styles and a wide range of colors, making it suitable for homes in any price range. Additionally, ease and lower cost of installation, durability, beauty and minimal maintenance make our vinyl siding a better choice for discerning homeowners. View the chart below to learn the differences between fiber cement vs. vinyl siding.
