Milford, MI – Fiber Cement Siding Installation
Milford fiber cement siding installation can be a significant investment. You may be wondering, “Does it actually pay off?” Yes! It pays off in many ways. We at Allied Construction and Restoration would love the opportunity to discuss these advantages with you in person. But, let’s go ahead and take a quick look at why in Milford, MI, Hardie board siding is an excellent decision.
Does installing fiber cement siding pay off?
As we already said, absolutely! Here’s why.
100% JOY factor
According to NARI, a remodel installation of fiber-cement siding is one of only two remodel projects that provided homeowners with a 100% joy factor. In other words, homeowners who re-sided their homes with Hardie board siding in Milford MI and throughout the US were 100% satisfied with the outcome. We think that’s pretty significant. And in comparison, those who chose vinyl were only 89% satisfied.
A study completed by siding.com found that the ROI (return on investment) for fiber cement siding was an excellent 84%. This means that there was a direct correlation between the investment of installing fiber-cement siding and an increased sales price of a home. What this study does not even touch on is the effect the siding installation had on the time on the market. If you’re selling a home you no longer occupy, the return could be even higher as the carry cost of paying taxes, insurance, and mortgage interest on a home you don’t live in adds up quickly.
Why Milford Residents Choose Fiber Cement Siding Installation Over Vinyl
As experts in the construction field, Allied Construction and Restoration has worked with many building materials over the years. We have found that fiber cement siding installation in Milford MI has several advantages over its most common competitor: vinyl.
While vinyl may cost less, fiber-cement siding has other advantages. James Hardie fiber-cement siding has its own unique advantages too. Let’s take a look at why in Milford Hardie board siding is an exceptional choice.
Cold Climate Formulation
James Hardie HardiePlank® has been specially formulated for our cold northern climate. The freeze-thaw cycle in Michigan can cause vinyl siding to expand and contract or become brittle and crack. HZ5® HardiePlank address these issues with a formulation that allows flexibility.
James Hardie siding is nonflammable and provides no fuel for a house fire. This offers your family a measure of extra safety.
Also, James Hardie siding is nontoxic. It does not off-gas VOCs like vinyl does.
James Hardie and the HardieBacker® products received the GREENGUARD GOLD designation. Hardie uses recycled materials and 75%+ regionally sourced raw materials. The Hardie production process and products strive to minimize their carbon footprint.
In short, we love the description that This Old House gave to fiber-cement siding. “It masquerades as wood or masonry, wears like concrete, and survives even the harshest elements.”
