Benefits of Different Types of Residential Siding
Hardi-Plank and Fiber Cement
Fiber cement is a durable siding with many benefits. It is very popular because it looks like wood, has a rigid feel and does not deteriorate like wood siding. It has a natural curb appeal. Fiber cement is composed of Portland cement, ground sand, cellulose fiber, select additives and water. Fiber cement is considered a masonry product and is heavier than wood or vinyl products, thus it is very important that the product is fastened according to manufacturers’ specifications. Our products follows all manufacturers’ guidelines in the installation of fiber cement siding. Fiber cement products will need to be painted. The product is installed, then two (2) coats of exterior grade acrylic paint are applied to the siding. The paint job on fiber cement will last longer than paint on wood siding because fiber cement resists shrinking and swelling, enabling a good brand of paint to last up to 3 times longer on fiber cement siding.
