Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber Cement siding is a great choice for those who want the appearance of wood siding without the associated maintenance issues. Available in a variety of textures, Fiber Cement siding is more durable than wood. It’s also termite-resistant, water-resistant, and non-combustible and warranted to last 30 years.
Fiber Cement siding is composed of cement, sand and cellulose fiber that has been cured with pressurized steam to increase its strength and dimensional stability. The fiber reinforces the product and prevents cracking. This siding product will protect your home from rot, fire, wind and insects.
An advantage of Fiber Cement siding is its attractiveness and variety of styles that have embossed wood grained texture, stucco or smooth finish. These products are combined with various types of trim to block the weather. Ventilation accessories may also be utilized and painted as you wish.
