Stucco vs Hardie Siding: What Works For Your Home

Homes exist in a variety of sizes and designs, and the siding used on them varies greatly as well. Vinyl, wood, hardie board, and stucco are all common choices, but deciding which one will work best for you can be trickier than most people realise.

The siding of the house is quite important, both for security and comfort. Furthermore, a lot depends on the material you choose. As a result, you really need to weigh your options carefully when deciding between Hardie Siding and stucco. Although it isn’t that simple to decide, you might take into account stucco or Hardie siding. It depends on a wide range of factors, including your budget, your geographic location, and a great deal more.

The difference between stucco and Hardie siding for your home will be the main topic of this article.

STUCCO BREAKDOWN

A common question is “What is stucco? ” Stucco, on the other hand, is a mixture of sand, concrete, lime, and water that is typically placed in coats over significant craftsmanship. Stucco doesn’t cost much because the components are so inexpensive, but the application is frequently best left to professionals. It is possible that the layering technique will make things more expensive overall.

Stucco also provides reasonable weather resistance against snow and rain, despite the fact that it can eventually become psychologically destabilising. Additionally, it isn’t very energy-efficient; for example, the R-value of basic stucco is only about 0.20. However, similar to the majority of options, it frequently functions effectively with added security and expert installation by AMP Concept Canada Inc.

An expert can provide you with the greatest stucco option if you’re curious. Stucco siding emphasises versatility as a key feature. The content may surely be grouped in a variety of patterns and whirls, and other tones can be incorporated into it. In any event, given that it was mostly advertised in the 1980s and can appear to be out of style, some customers may think it is disliked.

You can find a range of possibilities online by searching for “who does stucco work near me” if you want proper installation.

HARDIE BOARD BREAKDOWN

Fibre concrete sheets, also known as Hardie boards, were developed from fibre concrete products in the 1980s.

Fibre concrete is a form of concrete that contains 8 to 10% wood fibre together with either fly ash or silica sand for added strength and the ability to dry quickly, something like artificial stucco. Hardie board requires little maintenance and lasts for a very long time.

It is available in several forms that are used for exterior siding, including:

Long strips of siding
Shingles that are secure and vertical

Bugs, such as termites, dislike it and can’t harm it, and the Hardie board is water-safe, giving it a distinctive hard-to-coordinate quality. When comparing the price of Hardie board to that of stucco, it is considerably easier to defend the purchase.
