In our previous discussion, we focused on the new generation of vinyl siding. The fact of the matter is, however, that some people simply want nothing to do with vinyl siding. That’s okay – variety, after all, is the spice of life! For those people who want something other than vinyl, but still want relatively easy maintenance and longevity, we also offer fiber cement siding. Variations of this product have been on the market for generations, but the current incarnation came into being in the 1980’s, when changes were made to the kind of fibers used to bind the cement, replacing the old asbestos fibers, which of course were found to be hazardous.
Among the many benefits of fiber cement siding are the fact that it is fire and termite resistant, which could have a positive impact on your homeowner’s insurance rates (check with your agent or insurance provider for further information on this benefit). And, speaking of impact, fiber cement siding is also strong, resisting damage from hail, wind driven debris, and day to day hits such as kids toys, ladders, etc. Additionally, with the use of optional factory applied color, fiber cement siding maintains its beauty for years. Of course, you can always change the color, as, unlike vinyl, fiber cement siding is easily paintable to change the appearance of your home whenever you choose without replacing the siding. Fiber cement siding is available in a variety of styles from lap to shingle to vertical panels to give you exactly the appearance you are looking for to enhance the beauty of your home.
