For residential homes, fiber cement siding is a very popular option. When you need an aesthetically pleasing siding that will offers durability and lasting value, fiber cement is the best choice. Read on to learn more about the benefits of fiber cement siding in today’s blog, below.

Fiber cement siding is eco-friendly

Fiber cement is created using sand, cement, and wood fiber, which creates an incredibly durable finished product. But did you know that in addition to being durable, this material is also environmentally friendly? That’s because the wood fiber is made from 100% recycled wood, so no trees were harmed in the making of your siding. In addition, because fiber cement contains no toxic chemicals, it doesn’t hurt the earth when it has run the course of its life and must be disposed of.

It works for any climate

Some types of siding can only handle certain types of weather and degrade much more quickly in certain climates, but fiber cement remains durable in all conditions. Expansion and contraction is minimal with fiber cement, meaning it remains stable in any weather and cracking is much less likely than with other types of siding materials. In addition, paint adheres well to fiber cement so colors stay vibrant.

It’s available on many colors and styles

Fiber cement siding is manufactured in a dizzying array of colors and styles so you are sure to find one that works with the look of your home. In fact, the finish of your siding can even be matched to your existing siding if you’re planning on building an addition onto your home.

It doesn’t rot

Thanks to the high cement content, fiber cement siding is not at risk of rotting. But that’s not all it can resist: It also holds its own against everything from harsh weather conditions to insects, making it the perfect choice for any residing project.
