Siding protects the walls of your house from the effects of the weather. It forms an additional barrier against the infiltration of wind and rain to keep excess moisture from seeping in. Siding forms an integral part of your house and contributes to its aesthetic and market value.

It is important to invest and ensure that you use the best siding available for your home. Wood and metal siding are popular but the best choice, both in terms of money value and function, is HardiePlank Fiber Cement Siding.

What is Fiber Cement Siding?

Currently the leading choice in siding. HardiePlank Fiber Cement Siding is a composite siding made of cement, wood fiber, and sand that have been cured with pressurized steam for stability and increased strength.

How does it look like?

HardiePlank Fiber Cement Siding is available in a variety of styles, textures, patterns, sizes, and colors. Most fiber cement siding styles are also designed to look and feel like wood – only much stronger and more durable. Most of the time, fiber cement siding imitates the look of horizontal wood clapboards or imitation shingles.

How HardiePlank Fiber Cement Siding can help?

There are many advantages to using fiber cement siding. Here are some of them:

  1. Termite-resistant. Termites eat wood. The process of making fiber cement siding makes the wood fibers inedible for termites. Since they can’t eat it, termites will leave your siding alone.
  2. Moisture-resistant. Fiber cement siding, unlike wood, is not porous and won’t absorb moisture from the air or rain. This prevents rotting or damaging mold and mildew growth.
  3. Non-combustible. Fiber cement siding is fire-resistant which makes it ideal for areas with high fire risk.
  4. Durable. Most fiber cement siding come with 50-year manufacturer or material warranty. It is also thicker which makes it more resistant to cracking, peeling, swelling, chipping and other damages other siding materials are susceptible to.
  5. Suitable for most climates. Fiber cement siding works well in the heat of southwest states or in the cold of New England and northern climates.
  6. Low maintenance. If properly installed, fiber cement siding will last a long time and will only require periodic inspection. The look of fiber cement siding is also easily refreshed with paint since adheres to this type of siding without difficulty.

How does Fiber Cement Siding compare to other siding materials?

  1. Price. Fiber cement siding generally costs more than vinyl siding but costs less than stucco, stone, or wood cladding.
  2. Versatility. Fiber cement siding is more versatile than vinyl and wood siding.
  3. Damage Resistance. Fiber cement siding is less susceptible to weather damage caused by wind storms or wind-borne debris compared to wood or vinyl. It also resists chipping and cracking better than masonry.

Where to find Fiber Cement Siding?

There are many manufacturers of fiber cement siding but one of its best known suppliers is the James Hardie company. James Hardie fiber cement siding, known by the name “HardiePlank” carries a 50-year product warranty.

James Hardie has excellent reputation in fiber cement products, leading others in the industry to refer to the James Hardie fiber cement siding and siding from other manufacturers as “Hardie boards”. You can also ask an expert contractor to procure James Hardie fiber cement siding for you.

Who can install HardiePlank Fiber Cement Siding?

We had all new windows put in and a deck built. Both are awesome. Windows were installed in half a day (9) and they look amazing! Had the deck built in two days with another day to stain. Everything looks absolutely perfect. I knew it would because AllTex had previously done my roof, Hardie plank siding, trim and gutters years ago. Every job has exceeded my expectations and the crews have always been so nice. I almost have a new house, lol. But if I need anything else done, I will call them back for sure! Thanks so much Aleck!!read more

I highly recommend this company for any kind of home remodeling projects. We worked primarily with Aleck early this year and we have had a fantastic experience with him and his crew who went above and beyond in delivering us a phenomenal custom backyard kitchen with pergola and flooring. His team, handpicked by Aleck, were true professionals and came with considerable experienced and advice. We made a few design changes during the project and Aleck was very respectful and accommodating to our needs which left us very satisfied and we expect to use his team again in the future. We are very picky customers and went through several quotes from other contractors before deciding on Aleck as he came through my Boss' recommendation and had the most transparent pricing along with a very high quality design using the best materials. e love Aleck & his team, truly happy customers here when we look at our backyard everyday.read more

I highly recommend All-Tex. I had a wonderful experience working with Aleck. A year before this project I hired another fairly large contractor in the Houston area to do the siding and roof at my home in League City, and it was a nightmare. I was very gun-shy about the process when my mother's house in Humble needed a new roof and windows. I vetted contractors by reading plenty of online reviews and got estimates from the 5 contractors with the best online reviews. All-Tex came in with the best value (not the cheapest, but definitely the least expensive for the same quality materials). Once we signed the contract the job went as smooth as I could have hoped. They scheduled everything in a timely manner, turned out an excellent work product and even helped my mother take care of the heavier items when preparing the home area for the work. The team was excellent, respectful and did a great job! I highly recommend and will definitely use them again if a need arises!read more

This is the second time I hired All-Tex to work on my house.I had all of my failed wood siding and fascia replaced with Hardiplank.As with the first job, pricing was great. And considering the excellent quality of the work, it was a good value.The crew respectful of my property, and left the premises neat and clean, at the end of every day.I think estimators can make or break a construction business, and Russell A. is a good one. His pricing and direction drives the value, in my opinion.Coordinating with Russell and the office was a breeze...All nice people!This is a contractor I was happy to pay.read more

All-Tex and their roofer Scott Baumgardner did a terrific job putting on a new roof for us. Scott and his crew clearly knew their job and they went about their work in a diligent workman-like fashion explaining the process to me in as much detail as I wanted to hear. It was a very smooth process and the roof now looks great and was done at a fair price. With all of the roofer horror stories out there its good to know at least somebody can do the job right. I highly recommend Scott for your roofing needs.read more

I had All Tex build a patio cover and countertop with a built in grill. They also stamped my concrete. Everything looks beautiful and I love the finished product. They were timely and professional and very patient in answering any questions or concerns. Russel was my point of contact throughout the project and he couldn't have been nicer or more professional. I would highly recommend him and All Tex to anyone who needs work done on their property.read more

I had woodpecker damage on the roof fascia and some rotted siding. The All-Tex crew arrived on time and did an excellent job, replacing the wooden fascia with Hardiboard, even finding some roof flashing problems that they fixed. They were done in four days and cleaned up afterwards. Very professional. I've used All-Tex two other times in the past 30 years, and have never been disappointed.read more

Good price and great finished product. They said they'd finish in 2 days but it rained the second and third days. The boss guy still showed up both rain days to see if he could finish between the rain drops (great commitment to task!) Once done all materials were cleaned up and boss guy made sure we were FULLY satisfied with the work. Somebody buy that man a beer! Highly recommend.read more

What Happy Customers are Saying

Dixie Meyer Dixie Meyer

We were extremely pleased with the repair work done on our termite damaged home that required walls, studs, insulation, & painting performed inside & outside of our home.  We also had all the siding replaced & painted & 2 doors replaced & painted. The same workers were present every day until the work was completed. The attention to detail & the clean up afterwards was as if they were working on their own home. We always received a prompt reply with our emails & someone always answered the phone when we called the office & no voice mails. The customer service was excellent & the skill of the workers was exceptional. We will certainly use this company again for future needs.

Ron Berger Ron Berger

Used All-Tex to replace some siding on our home. Scope included demo of old siding, repair insulation, install vapor barrier, replace old single pane windows with double pane, install new hardi-plank and paint. Very competitive pricing.  Installed hardi-plank "butt-trim" method and did not have to debate that this was the way to install hardi-plank or pay more for it. They were also reasonable on scope changes once project was underway (e.g. water damage repair). I'm definitely including them routinely on bid list for future scopes.
