Create the Vertical Siding Look You Want
When it comes to siding you have a huge variety of options to choose from. You can pick a number of different siding materials, styles, and textures. After you have decided on those, there is an amazing variety of colors available to you to select for your siding.
One siding style that has been around for over 200 years but has become more popular recently is vertical siding. It gives your home a beautiful, contemporary look. This style can be achieved in different ways and the design possibilities are sheer endless.
Modernizing Your Home Siding
Vertical siding looks great installed on the entire home. It can also be combined with other siding styles, like lap siding. You can highlight different elements of your home by using different siding styles and make them those elements stand out.
This is a very versatile siding style. Board & Batten is the most popular vertical siding style. Wider boards are installed vertically on the bottom. Battens, which are narrow boards, are then installed on top of the wider boards over the seams, creating this unique aesthetic.
The resulting look is very clean and depending on the width of the boards more traditional or contemporary. In the past this look was associated with farmhouses but today it is seen on all kinds of different house types with varying architectural styles.
The Right Product for the Job
There are a number of options to you when you are considering to have vertical siding installed on your home. The best siding on the market is James Hardie fiber cement. It has a plethora of advantages over other siding types and materials.
Fiber cement is extremely durable. It is resistant to impact damage, mold, rot, and mildew. Furthermore, it does not attract pests like insects. In case of a fire, it will not burn and add fuel to a fire. It has a high ROI and will look beautiful for a long time, raising the curb appeal of your home.
James Hardie is the leading manufacturer of fiber cement siding. Their products are very high quality and are backed by amazing warranties. The siding comes with a 30-year product and 15-year finish warranty. This will give you peace of mind for many years to come.
Another huge advantage of fiber cement is the fact that it needs very minimal maintenance. It only needs to be washed off with a pressure washer when it gets dirty or dusty. It can be painted, unlike vinyl siding, but it does not require nearly as much maintenance as wood.
