While the cost of the Hardie board was substantially more than the vinyl/PVC options, after carefully evaluation we selected the Hardie board option, primarily for the trim package that was offer. very pleased with the final product. The installation crew and project mgr. Anthony were top notch. Very professional and courteous. Was impressed with the final detail crew, these guys were very concerned that we were totally satisfied before they left the project. Highly recommend the Sideco team!
