Fiber Cement Offers Natural Durability
A long lasting alternative to clapboard and vinyl siding, fiber cement siding provides the appearance of wood but is composed of eco-friendly materials. Innovative engineered material technology creates a product that is weather resistant, non-combustible and will not rot or warp like wood. Fiber cement typically costs less than wood and stucco, but can be more costly than vinyl.
Fiber cement is increasing in popularity as an alternative to vinyl, clapboard and stucco siding for many reasons:
- Impervious to wood boring insects
- Class A (1) flame spread rating
- Resists UV rays and moisture
- Made of eco-friendly materials
- Stands up to freeze/thaw cycles
- Resists damage from everyday impacts
