When you choose the right siding for your home, you need to strike a balance between aesthetics, sturdiness, upkeep and long-term value. There are a lot of materials to look for, like a vinyl siding or a wood siding, each capable of providing the qualities that you need. There is one, however, that combines all four, thus setting itself apart from all the others: fiber cement.
The Composition of a Fiber Cement Siding
What makes fiber cement siding a durable, low-cost choice for your home is its composition. It is a strong mix of wood pulp and Portland cement, making this composite material physically sturdy and flexible.
Fiber Cement Siding and Its Benefits
When you choose this kind of siding for your home, you will see that it is detailed in such a way to mimic the appearance of stone or concrete. This makes your home better in terms of curb appeal because fiber cement can look like something grandiose but at a fraction of the cost.
Also, having it installed in your home is a better alternative to painting your house. You do not have to scrape off old paint and apply a fresh coat with this type of siding because the material lasts for many years and is easy to maintain.
Other benefits of installing fiber cement siding include the following:
With a wide range of textures to choose from, you can find the right color that suits your style.
Fiber cement is resistant to impact and rot and has fireproof properties.
Your home is protected from the elements, like rain and snow.
