House siding for modern look

My 1965 house has wood panel siding (applied in sheets) and now needs to be replaced. Does this have to be done by a contractor? Are the wood and concrete mix siding panels I've heard of good? My house is modern looking, and I don't want a cottage feel. Any siding recommendations other than a smooth plaster? And, it's on stilts, so no heavy concrete anything. Thanks!

Hardie has a fiber cement vertical siding product that you may be looking for. A contractor would have all the tools and expertise to install it properly. If you're an adventurous DIYer, you could DIY as well but you will need to get the correct cutting tools.


I tear things down and build them up.
