Replaced the cedar siding
Hardie is excellent siding. As another has mentioned, proper installation is key (butt joints with proper flashing) to good appearance. It holds paint extremely well and is impervious to the elements.

Just FYI, Hardie has shingle siding as well. Nearly all cedar sidewall shingles I see in our area end up turning black within five or so years and, if painted, usually peel quickly. The Hardie shingles are just as bulletproof as the siding.

Hardie has a 'beaded' lap siding that, for the right architectural style offers a look you don't see everyday. You don't see it too often because it's not the high volume product that's typically kept in stock but it's usually readily available.

OK, and repainting would be sufficient, however, if the siding is in bad condition and in need of replacing, HardiPlank is an excellent product with 50 warranty. I used it on my new shed, it's great stuff.

  • Avatar a_redhead1979 I need to know about modular as opposed to manufactured homes..?

    I live in Southern California so our problems are fire and earthquakes---each can do just as much damage to a regular, built on site home Help!

    • Manufactured homes are built on Steel Beams... Modular homes are built to the same requirements as a stick built house. Once a manufactured home is placed on property - it can be placed without a permanent foundation - i …t is important is because buying a home should be considered an investment and you want your investment to increase in value. Often times with manufactured homes the land increases in value but the home itself decreases.

    I MEAN WHAT KIND OF FOOD OR TOYS AND CAGES
    Rosie, (not to be mean) but if you use newspaper you can poison your hamster. it has to do with the ink

    • There are all kinds of decent cages, you can buy. I would try to buy a good one that has the basic essentials, i.e, water bottle, ramp or exercise wheel. You will also want to buy some hamster shavings to put in the cage and change that at least once a week, also you will need to buy some hamster food and a bowl for the food to go in. Try Petsmart
