Fiber cement siding is relatively new in the siding industry, but it is quickly outpacing more traditional siding products like wood and vinyl in popularity. If you’re talking to a siding contractor now about your plans to install new siding on a newly constructed home or to replace your home’s existing siding, ask your contractor about fiber cement. Here are some of its most documented advantages:
Some fiber cement siding manufacturers offer strong warranties ranging from 25 years to a lifetime. Those that come with a factory finish also have long-term warranties to protect against common paint problems like fading.
Fiber cement does not need expensive maintenance to remain durable and beautiful. You can simply hose it down to remove mud and dirt every six months to a year.
Best of Both Worlds
Fiber cement siding combines the reliable performance of masonry with the classic beauty of wood. There are even fiber cement products that mimic the style of shingles, brick and stone– at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. If you’re planning a separate home improvement project, such as a metal roofing installation, you may be able to afford it more easily thanks to the savings you’ll enjoy via fiber cement siding.
Resistance to Common Siding Challenges
Common challenges to siding materials include termite infestation, rot and fire. None of these problems are a concern with fiber cement siding. Termites and other animals are not attracted to it. Fiber cement is highly resistant to fire and rot as well. It performs fantastically in all climates.
