Fiber Cement Siding

FiberCementPicking the right siding for your house is a delicate balancing act between good looks, durability, maintenance, and affordability. With wood, vinyl, stone, brick, or stucco, you might get only two or three of these. But with fiber cement, a resilient mix of wood pulp and portland cement, you get all four. It’s the only siding that combines the performance of masonry—minimal upkeep; rot-, fire-, and termite-proof; unaffected by wind or cold—with the look of painted wood clapboards, shingles, even stone or brick. Yet fiber cement goes for just a fraction of the cost of these other materials. No wonder nearly 15 percent of new homes are clad with the stuff.

All this has happened in just 25 years, since fiber cement was first introduced. Now architects regularly specify the siding because it holds down costs without compromising aesthetics. It’s even accepted for use in some historic districts.

Vinyl Siding

Would you rather spend your weekends doing fun things, rather than maintaining your home’s exterior? If so, vinyl siding is for you! Vinyl siding never requires painting and is very low maintenance.

Not only is vinyl siding a dream to maintain, but it is also very attractive and durable. These days, vinyl siding comes in a very wide variety of colors and finishes. Some product lines are even made to look like real wood!

Vinyl Replacement Windows

Hatcher Siding and Seamless GutterVinyl Replacement windows are a great investment any time of the year. New windows reduce heating and cooling bills. They are attractive, easy to clean, hard working.

Don’t be fooled by those ads for “any size window” for a rock bottom price. They are inferior window products, and do not include trim work with the installation. I include a quality replacement window, professional installation, and custom trim work, without nickel and diming my customers. Replacement windows come in every size and several colors. This also includes wood grain on the interior side of the vinyl replacement window, if desired.

Seamless Aluminum Gutters

Gutters are an integral part of keeping your home safe and dry. Seamless gutters lack the joints and seams that cause leaks. They look better too! I own a state-of-the-art seamless gutter machine and can provide you with custom-made seamless aluminum gutters of any length.


Prevent debris from clogging your gutters by installing Gutter Guards.
