Florida Siding Options from Archer Exteriors

1.     Hardie® Plank Lap Siding: Traditional and Timeless, Sleek and Strong  Hardie®

Plank lap siding is our top recommendation, recognized as the most popular brand of siding in North America. It seamlessly blends traditional aesthetics with modern resilience, offering a sleek and strong appearance. Requiring painting only every 7 to 10 years, it provides enduring value to your home. Routine cleaning ensures its durability, maintaining the authenticity of its wood-like appearance.

2.     Hardie® Panel Vertical Siding: The Warmth of Stucco with Superior Strength

For those desiring the warm, inviting look of stucco but with superior strength, we recommend Hardie® Panel vertical siding. This option combines the timeless elegance of stucco with the strength of fiber cement. Available in Statement Collection products and Dream Collection products—or primed for paint—re-siding your house with Hardie® Panel vertical siding adds visual punch to your design.

3.     Hardie® Soffit Panels: Resistant to Warping and Rotting

Complete your home's exterior with our recommendation for soffits—key construction elements that cover the underside of your roof eaves and exterior porch ceilings. Hardie® Soffit Panels Products come in both smooth and vented profiles to meet aesthetic needs and code requirements. With a raised texture that mimics wood but is resistant to warping and rotting, these soffit panels provide a durable and attractive finish.

4.     Florida's Hardie™ Zone 10: Tailored for Semi-Arid to Arid Climate

Florida falls under Hardie™ Zone 10, characterized by a semi-arid to arid climate with mild winters and hot summers featuring extreme UV exposure. In response to this unique climate, their HZ10 products are formulated with the highest quality raw materials, providing enhanced resistance against cracking, splitting, rotting, and swelling.
