After sufficient research, as indicative of the infographic, it was determined that James Hardie’s Fiber Cement Siding was primarily much sturdier and more weather resistant than vinyl siding. There were many reasons why the infographic was boiled down to just a few categories; however, one of the main reasons being that when you decide to replace your home’s exterior siding or when you decide to any sort of renovations on your home, you’ll want to take into account a few questions: Is it safe? Can it catch fire easily? How does it hold up in a storm? How durable and thick is it? Will the interior of my home experience any sort of leaking?
