Our new home has a wood foundation. The siding (fiber cement) will be going on soon. What can we use to cover the foundation between the siding and the ground? It has to look decent, stand up to an occasional scrape by a snow shovel and not cost an arm and a leg.
-plain treated plywood = too plain
-color coated aluminum roll stock = too fragile
-"Groundbreaker", a fiber reinforced roll stock product only comes in shiny light gray-unacceptable look.
