HardiePlank siding, a fiber cement product, is available in patterns that imitate wood grain or in a plain, smooth finish. The planks are produced from a mixture of Portland cement, sand, wood fibers, and water. The material comes in twenty colors including beige, gray, brown, blue, green, and red. Planks come in lengths of 12 feet by 5/16 inches and in six different widths. Fiber-cement siding costs approximately 37 cents a linear foot compared to hardboard siding which costs about 45 cents per linear foot.
