ICON siding from CertainTeed

user-6870177 | Posted in General Questions on

1.) Does anyone have experience with this product. It is new from CertainTeed, and has the look and feel of Hardie plank(cement) siding, but is lighter weight. I hate to be a guinea pig (at least the first one), but its lighter weight seems that it would be easier to install, avoid some cracking, etc problems that I have heard from my supplier.
2,) Any idea of the price compared to Hardie plank? I have a feeling the distributor is pushing us toward Hardie.

Know that CertainTeed had problems with its first generation composite, but I understand that live and learn is pretty common in vendor histories.
