stucco vs hardie plank
has any one had both stucco (put on by a reputable stucco firm) and hardie plank on houses and can you state which you prefer and why?
we are in Zone 3 which gets all seasons which factor in but we have always liked the look of stucco. it seems so much pleasing to the eye. I have seen some of the hardie houses done with a few different applications and thought them lovely but our house is a basic ranch style with 1 dormer on each side and we do not want the horizontal lines to be all you see.
opinions and photos greatly appreciated
