Compare Hardie® Plank Siding Against Vinyl Siding

Choosing house siding from James Hardie® makes sense – it provides low maintenance but, unlike vinyl siding, doesn’t sacrifice the beauty of wood. No wonder it’s protecting over 5.5 million homes in North America alone.

Vinyl siding may be a popular choice in house siding, but see why Blue Ridge Exteriors chooses to offer James Hardie® siding to homes in Richmond, Bon Air, Chesterfield, Glen Allen, Midlothian, and other surrounding areas of Central Virginia.
