Cement fiber siding - everything you need to know

Cement fiber siding - everything you need to know

What exactly looks like wood, just like wood, but not wood? In the world of siding the answer is fiber cement. Fiber cement siding consists of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers, all of which are steam pressed to form a solid. Since fiber cement tends to be a less popular choice among consumers, here is a review of the pros and cons inherent in fiber cement siding so you can determine if it is the right choice for you.

There are several advantages to fiber cement siding. As a material, fiber cement looks great, and since it is available in a variety of colors and patterns (such as horizontal versus vertical), it provides the homeowner with the opportunity to create a unique look for their home's exterior. Fiber cement is very solid, too. The components in fiber cement allow it to withstand harsh weather conditions and extreme bouts of moisture, something other types of bending cannot claim. Fiber cement siding is also resistant to rot. And unlike wood, it does not rot, warp, or attract insects. The result is a clean product that offers the same attractive appearance as wood without all the hassle.

On the side maintenance scale, fiber cement is somewhere in the middle, which requires some, but not much, maintenance over the years. Since the material is good at fixing paint, paint chips, wear and fading don't come into the picture until many years on the road. Finally, fiber cement is a more environmentally friendly product than some of its side material counterparts, making it an attractive choice for those looking to switch to a green environment.

However, before registering for a siding made of fiber cement, you should know that it comes with some drawbacks. Firstly, fiber cement siding is more expensive than vinyl and wood, so be prepared for the extra cost. Fiber cement siding also does not have any insulating properties, so there won't be much in the way of saving energy over the years. Finally, although fiber cement siding does not require as much maintenance as some other types of siding, it does need to be repainted at some point down the line. Sometimes, even this minor degree of maintenance can be annoying for some. If the customer seems really resistant to maintenance, then it is recommended to use vinyl siding over fiber cement.

At the end of the day, each type of siding material available comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and fiber cement siding is no exception. If you are considering installing fiber cement facades, get all the facts from the contractor before making any decision. Remember, bending over is a long-term investment, so take the time to choose the materials that suit your needs and prepare to enjoy your home from a whole new perspective.
