The Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding is a good alternative to more conventional sidings. It comes in a wide variety of colors and styles that resemble stucco, cedar shingles and wood clapboards. Fiber cement siding is primarily made up of cement, sand and wood fiber. This type of siding is extremely durable. In this article, we’ll go over the benefits of fiber-cement siding so you can decide if this type of siding is right for you.

Fiber cement siding has design versatility.

You can choose fiber cement siding in a lot of different textures and colors. It also comes in different shapes and sizes. Fiber cement boards are cut to the desired dimensions before being installed on exterior walls. Afterwards, they may be painted, or left as is if you want to display their patterns. Some types of this siding resemble bricks or wood while others have flat glossy surfaces. Whether you’re aiming for a traditional look or a modern makeover, you will find the perfect variant with fiber cement siding to turn that vision into reality.

Fiber cement siding is cost-effective.

We’re not going to lie. You may have to pay a little more in labor costs to install fiber cement siding. However, the material lasts longer than other siding does. Replacements will seldom be needed. This reduces the long-term costs. Installation is cheaper than installing wood or stone. Fiber cement siding can be looked at as an investment in your home’s curb appeal and, if you should decide to sell, it will increase its value and desirability.
