Fiber cement siding – sounds heavy doesn’t it?! Well, it is – it’s made mostly of concrete, but don’t let that fool you, this is one of the most attractive and hottest products on the market.
Fiber cement siding looks like real wood, or shingles, or gingerbread, or stucco, or even smooth. This is a heavy duty product (no pun intended!). It resists damage from cold and windy climates (perfect for Colorado and Wyoming homes). Temperature swings won’t affect this product and it’s designed to withstand hurricane force winds. It resists rotting and cracking in damp climates, has the highest possible rating to stop the spread of fires, provides protection from the impact of hail, and insects like termites don’t find it appetizing!
The fiber cement siding we use, James Hardie, comes in 12 beautiful colors – or it comes preprimed for you to choose your own. Either way, this siding comes with a 15 year paint guarantee – no painting for at least 15 years!!! The siding has a 30-year limited warranty that is transferrable if you sell your house.
Speaking of selling your home – if you decide to put fiber cement siding on your home, you’re likely to get a 98% return on your investment. That’s like virtually getting it for free. If you add insulation to your installation you will increase the R-factor of your home by 3 – giving you an instant return through energy savings.
Fiber cement siding is a green product that looks beautiful and is designed to last. If you’re serious about protecting and beautifying your home, this is definitely the option for you!
