Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding

In today’s home renovation market, the trend of using fiber cement siding has skyrocketed. Consumers have found themselves more attracted to the sturdy fiber siding than the traditional wood homes have featured in the past. But there is so much more to this particular type of siding than meets the eye. Here are some of the top Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding that consumers sometimes overlook:

1) Unlike wood siding, fiber cement is resistant to mold, mildew, fungus and rotting. Therefore decreasing the amount of maintenance on the average consumer’s house ten-fold.

2) It adds fire protection to your house! Fiber cement is very fire resistant and non combustible. A great way to add some peace of mind.

3) Fiber cement holds onto paint and is not as susceptible to cracking or fading. Again, this creates less maintenance work and gives the opportunity for homeowners to achieve whatever color scheme they wish on their house. Plus for those who like the look of wood siding, the finished product is virtually the same visually, with a much stronger material.

4) When comparing costs of installing fiber cement to wood or brick, fiber cement is always the more inexpensive choice. To top it off, fiber cement typically has a warranty up to 25 years!

5) Lastly, for those who are advocates for “going green,” fiber cement gets major points for its’ sustainability.
