Hardie Board Siding
Made up of cement, sand and wood fibres, Hardie board is commonly used in place of vinyl siding. Thanks to it’s durability and ability to withstand extreme heat and cold, it’s quickly becoming a popular Edmonton siding option for Edmonton and area homeowners.
Unlike vinyl, Hardie board is incredibly dense (over five times thicker than vinyl siding), which makes it very durable. Because of its composition of wood fibres and cement-like materials, Hardie board is much more likely to withstand wind and weather damage. From a home safety standpoint, Hardie board doesn’t melt, burn or warp when exposed to heat and because of it’s ability to stand up to cold and heat, Hardie board does not start to become brittle as it ages.
Both Hardie board and Vinyl siding are good solutions when it comes to your home exterior. So which siding is right for your house? The answer really depends. Give the team at Albatross Roofing a call to discuss our siding options and let us help you make the right decision for your home.
When Should I Replace Siding?
Siding remains resistant against rotting, warping, and severe weather, but direct impacts can cause it to crack. Usually, though, you can replace individual boards rather than an entirely new section for affordable upkeep.
Unfortunately, because they don’t need much maintenance, many homeowners can overlook items that remain unsafe to ignore. Whether you need yours inspected for problems or you need repairs now, you can count on us at Albatross Roofing.
