Vinyl Siding vs. Fiber Cement Siding
Windy City Construction and Design is an authorized installer of James Hardie fiber cement siding in Illinois. Compared to vinyl siding, fiber cement siding is more expensive. However, fiber cement provides lasting durability and is backed by the industry’s strongest warranty. The biggest difference between fiber-cement plank (such as Hardie plank) and vinyl siding is in the apparent shadow line created under each course. Because of its weight, fiber-cement plank is made considerably thinner (almost half) than corresponding wood plank, and also the vinyl siding that imitates the wood. Vinyl siding is a lot more affordable in terms of material cost and less labor heavy. The installation is easier and happens faster.

Cedar siding requires professional installation, it might not be properly installed by your handy man.
