Insulated vinyl fabric or hardie-type siding replacement One strategy I am considering, getting offers on, is to replace some outside cedar clapboard window siding with Hardie plank and fixing cut around the house (likely implementing a cover-over, same as done for vinyl fabric siding). This would greatly decrease the amount of house siding (match shade all around and give the same expose width) to my down wall while maintaining my cedar window siding elsewhere.
In conversation with one contractor he advised me of the advantages of a more recent (guess the last 20 years) protected vinyl window siding. The benefits, such as overall look over uninsulated window siding, and technical things of external surfaces brings me to rethink and consider using the insulated vinyl fabric window siding for the whole house.
I'm in doubt about what the contractors informs me, how excellent is insulated vinyl fabric window siding.. is it a great enhancement over uninsulated? Here I am mostly involved as to the look and feel of it window siding when the house is put up on the market. Hard board (Hardie) window siding has the strong
feel, uninsulated vinyl has the "skin over, protect up" in pushing things.
I have only one more question to ask:
What is the experience, how would you say on using insulated vinyl fabric window siding to upgrade, not cover-up, the external of a 30 year old customized built house.
