Fiber cement siding is known for being an alternative to wood and vinyl siding option. This siding is one of the most durable siding options for your Mount Airy home. Let’s take a moment to go over some of the benefits of choosing fiber cement siding over any other options.
Strength and Durability
While fiber cement’s composition may vary depending on the company mixing it, the basic recipe is cement, sand, and wood fibers. The wood fibers in this mixture and a special curing process helps to prevent cracking and leaves the cement with a lower moisture content. Fiber cement siding is as durable as cement. It is impervious to wood-boring insects, rot, and is resistant to deterioration caused by salt and UV rays. This siding also has a class 1A fire rating. Fiber cement siding can last up to 100 years if it is properly maintained. Many manufacturers even offer 30-year warranties for their products.
After years of perfecting the look and finish of fiber cement siding, many installers and manufacturers have come up with some designs people love. These designs take a dull wall and turn it into something beautiful. Instead of a smooth surface, you can enjoy your fiber cement siding with a wood grain embossed into it. This siding can even be stained, prefinished, painted, or left unfinished. You can also enjoy the beauty of wood shakes and planks in fiber cement.
Who said fiber cement was boring? Fiber cement siding holds paint exceptionally well and can last for up to 15 years if painted correctly. Some manufacturers offer siding as either pre-primed or unfinished options. If you choose the unfinished, or raw, variety, make sure to thoroughly wash and dry your siding before applying primer and paint.
