What is Fiber Cement Siding?

Fiber cement siding

Fiber cement siding is used in residential houses and some commercial projects and is composed of cement, sand, water and cellulose fibers. Although, depending upon the manufacturer, the composition material may change so it’s important to do your research when looking for the best options. 

Aside from being durable and long-lasting, this siding is low-maintenance making it a great option for homeowners who want to enjoy their home without frequent upkeep. This semi-rigid material provides excellent protection, too.

Fiber Cement Siding Cost

Less than brick, hardboard or composite siding, the cost range will depend upon factors like the scope of work and the installer.

Additionally, another benefit is that installation can often be at low costs. Quicker completion times and ease of installation means less installation time for siding contractors.

Fiber Cement Siding Benefits of Durability

Performance varies by manufacturer, however, a few benefits includes it’s ability to not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, withstand damage against moisture and rot, resistant to termites and other pests.

It’s also highly resistant to damage against gusty winds.

Maintaining Fiber Cement Siding

The average lifespan is about 50 years. Additionally, it’s an all-around great choice for siding because it can be painted so the homeowner can paint their desired color down the road. The absorption quality is better than wood and offers more flexibility than vinyl.

If you’re a homeowner who wants to reflect your style, fiber cement siding offers a wide range of style selection. These styles include wood, stucco and masonry.
