When it comes to the exterior of your home, you need a material that is going to provide the best protection for those materials that provide the integrity of the structure. Of course, you also want it to look attractive and provide a good return on your investment. Cement fiber siding does all this -- and more!

1. Environmentally Friendly

Made primarily of cement, sand, cellulose fibers and water, cement fiber siding leaves less of an ecological footprint than many other types of exterior coverings. This is an important factor as more homeowners insist on green homes and the industry moves toward it as a whole.

2. Attractive

Available in a wide range of designs and styles, cement fiber siding is often mistaken for wood siding or clapboard. While it comes in a wide range of standard color variations, you can also purchase custom colors to match your exact specifications. With cement fiber siding, there is no one-size-fits-all cookie-cutter look. You can choose from different size and shapes to allow your home to stand out from the others in your neighborhood.

3. Cost Effective

Cement fiber siding is friendly to your budget. It typically costs less for your contractor to install this type of siding so you are likely to obtain an estimate that is far less than if you used another type of material. When compared to stone, brick, wood siding and cedar, cement fiber siding is less expensive to purchase.

4. Durable

Vinyl siding can bear the signs of weather related incidences such as dings, dents and breakage as the result of hail, wind storms and the like. Cement fiber siding is able to hold up well against the elements, reducing the cost of repairs in the future. Cement fiber siding is also fireproof so it won't burn during a fire, decreasing the spread of fire should one occur.

5. Maintenance Free

Cement fiber siding is typically primed and painted at the factory before being delivered to your home. Once installed, it provides a waterproof barrier that doesn't allow mold or mildew to take root. This means that homeowners never have to paint it or worry about needing to pressure wash algae off it.
