What makes hardi so much better than vinyl? Does it last longer? What

Thanks for your question Amy! As with any product there are pros and cons and it all depends on your requirements and taste. Hardi is a great product because it has the look and feel of real wood or shake siding which many times is desired. It is specified many times over its wood counterparts because it is resistant to insect damage and holds paint longer. In comparison to vinyl or aluminum siding, Hardi has many more color options, a better textural appeal and adds and insulation value that traditional vinyl or aluminum typically did not. That is not to say that vinyl and aluminum siding have not improved in their own ways over the years. Hardi is typically more expensive than vinyl, requires specific tools to install and yes, needs a bit of maintenance (painting) over the course of years. It is a great product that we specify quite a bit which is not to say that when the requirements call for it, we are opposed to specifying a vinyl product. Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, given how many types of siding (vinyl, cementious and wood) we don't have a recommendation for you. Our apologies.

We are trying to decide on a roof color and I'm leaning towards a black or slate to go with a similarly colored red brick, black shutter, white trim combination. The builder is suggesting weatherered wood, it appears too brown to me. Your thoughts?

Jamie, we are also torn between weathered wood and slate for a similar brick house. What did you decide in the end?

Thanks for your comment, the siding reveal is 7 1/2" on the straight siding, and the shake comes in panels from James Hardi with a pre-set reveal. Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, this was a remodeling project and the brick was existing. We added over the garage and installed new siding on the gable over the front door. We also did the stone porch and walkway!

Thank you! Our house is brick and I've been looking for some color options to complement it - really like the grey.

So the siding was was not the pre-colored option from Hardie, correct? You painted the pre-primed Hardie?
