Why not stucco? Wood is a great material for building. Two of its greatest benefits are its flexibility and its strength, especially when using metal connectors. Similar to a palm tree, it moves with force and has memory to return to its original form. It goes with the flow. Therefore, it is not the best match for stucco because stucco is ridged. Time, weather, vibration from opening and closing the door causes failure. Hardie board is also ridged yet won’t crack because the flexibility of your home is taken up with the individual pieces the Hardie system provides.
Because Hardie board does not absorb the sun as quickly as more porous wood siding, you may see a reduction in your electric bill. Of course if you go from a light color on wood to a dark color on Hardie board, you may not see savings.
