Vinyl vs. Fiber Cement Siding

HomeTech is an expert in the installation of both vinyl and fiber cement siding from CertainTeed and Mastic. Few other MD roofing contractors can offer the same kind of expert siding installation that we do. Here is a quick explanation of vinyl and fiber cement siding so you can be more informed on our service.

Vinyl Siding

Introduced to the market in the early 1960s, vinyl siding has grown in popularity because of its durability, versatility and ease of maintenance. Manufactured with polyvinyl chloride, vinyl siding is impact resistant, rigid, and strong, with the ability to withstand high winds (certified up to 110 mph or higher) and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture. In addition, vinyl siding retains its looks over a number of years, needing little more maintenance than you can do with a garden hose and a rag.

Vinyl siding is available in a broad palate of colors, as well as a limited range of patterns.

Vinyl siding also is available in many profiles, including horizontal and vertical panels, shakes, scallops, shingles, fishscale, traditional lap, Dutch lap and beaded designs in various widths. At HomeTech, our professional design team will work with you to choose the exact style, color, and texture that best fits your Maryland home.

Fiber Cement Siding

For Maryland homeowners who want the appearance of wood siding without the hassles and costs associated with it, fiber cement siding is the best choice. Available in a variety of textures, fiber cement siding is more durable than wood. It’s also termite-resistant, water-resistant, and non-combustible. As with all the products HomeTech installs, it also comes with both our own Lifetime Workmanship Guarantee as well as the deep warranties of our manufacturers.

A further advantage of fiber cement siding is its attractiveness, variety of styles, and virtually unlimited number of colors that it is available in. Our experts can help you choose the right one for you home.

So if you are considering wrapping your home in siding, but don’t know which material to choose, give HomeTech a call. We are the Columbia roofing contractors with the deepest experience in the installation of top-quality vinyl and fiber cement siding.
