James Hardie Siding vs. Other Siding Options

When installing new siding on your home, you have to choose what material to use. Below, we compare James Hardie to vinyl siding and LP SmartSide siding. 

James Hardie Siding vs. Vinyl Siding

James Hardie siding is made of a patented fiber-cement material. It is more durable and up to 5X thicker than vinyl siding. James Hardie siding stands up to any elements you will face in Columbia, MD. This includes high winds, pouring rains, freezing temperatures, and massive hail storms. It gives your home decades of protection combined with extremely low maintenance.

Vinyl siding was first introduced in the 60’s as an alternative to aluminum siding. While it has many strengths compared to aluminum siding, it still has many weaknesses. Vinyl siding can be damaged fairly easily by high winds or an average hail storm. It is prone to warping with changing temperatures, which we have in Columbia. And, vinyl siding can become very brittle with age and exposure to elements.

James Hardie Siding vs. LP SmartSide Siding

James Hardie siding is by far the most popular brand of siding, and for great reason. It’s designed to hold up to damaging ultraviolet light and won’t rot, warp, or split. It offers minimal maintenance and is extremely durable. Furthermore, it has an amazing non-prorated 30 year warranty on the material and 15 year warranty on the color.

LP SmartSide siding is made of engineered wood. That means it requires more maintenance than James Hardie siding. It’s lighter and slightly easier to install but the material is prone to warping in changing temperatures. It is backed by a 50 year warranty, but that warranty is unfortunately prorated after just 5 years.

James Hardie Siding Styles in Columbia, MD

When choosing us for your James Hardie siding replacement project in Columbia, you can choose from multiple styles of siding. There is lap siding, shake siding, shingle siding, board and batten siding, vertical siding, and more. All you have to do is choose the style and color, and we will do the rest. Replacing siding has never been easier or more enjoyable.

James Hardie Lap Siding in Columbia, MD

Lap siding is the most popular style of siding available in Columbia. This type of siding involves horizontal planks that span across the entire wall. The planks are lapped on top of each other creating a traditional wood siding look. The majority of homes we install siding on in Columbia involve lap siding as the main style of siding. However, the lap siding can then be accented with a secondary style of siding below.

James Hardie Shake & Shingle Siding in Columbia

Shake siding, also commonly known as shingle siding, is typically an accent siding in Columbia. It looks extremely well on the gable walls of your home, around dormers, or on porches. Another popular option when replacing your siding is to have the shake or shingle siding a different color. By doing this, you’ll create the perfect accent wall for your home in Columbia. Shake or shingle siding really helps your home stand out from every other house in the neighborhood.

James Hardie Vertical & Board and Batten Siding in Columbia

Vertical siding or board and batten siding is another great siding style for your home in Columbia. This style of siding gives charm to small spaces with a contemporary feel. Or, it gives your home a dramatic sense of height when used on the entire exterior. If you like vertical siding’s unique look but aren’t sure about a whole-house installation, use it as an accent siding. No matter where you decide to install vertical siding or board and batten siding, it will look incredible on your home.
