What is Fiber Cement and What are the Benefits?
Fiber cement is made out of a combination of cement, cellulose fibers, water and silica. The materials are mixed, dyed, and pressed into boards in different styles and textures. This combination of materials makes fiber cement extremely sturdy and long lasting.
Fiber cement siding has a number of benefits that make it stand out and surpass other siding options, like wood or vinyl. There are clear advantages to this siding, which is why we recommend it most often.
Durability: Fiber cement siding is known for its excellent performance and longevity. This siding is extremely durable, resilient and sturdy. With fiber cement you will not have to think about your siding for many years to come.
Resilience: Fiber cement is extremely resilient to the elements of nature. It stands up to the varying weather conditions, which is very important when you live in a place like Colorado. Additionally, it is fire-resistant and will not burn, which is a great advantage over other siding materials, like wood. That fact can even mean a lower insurance cost for you. Fiber cement is also resistant to pests, mold and rot.
Warranty: James Hardie believes in the quality of their products and their longevity. That is why they offer a 30-year product and 15-year finish warranty for their siding. That warranty is hard to beat and will give you peace of mind that you are making a worthwhile and long-lasting investment.
Colors: Virtually any color can be infused into your James Hardie fiber cement siding. The options are phenomenal. James Hardie has two collections with fantastic color choices, the Statement Collection and the Dream Collection. Both feature the James Hardie ColorPlus® technology and offer fantastic choices for colors so you can pick the color of your dreams for your home. With this technology the color is applied in a controlled factory setting and is cured between coats. That means it is very durable and does not crack, peel or chip easily. The color is always beautiful, even and long-lasting.
Versatility: There is a large variety of styles available with fiber cement siding. You can choose between straight of staggered shingles, sheets, clapboard rows, panels to look like stucco or bricks, among other options. The siding can have different textures as well, from smooth, to wood grain and rough-hewn stone. Fiber cement is incredibly versatile and you can achieve almost any look with it. Your design dreams can come true with this incredible building material and it will look neat and modern when it is done.
Maintenance: Fiber cement siding needs almost no maintenance, which sets it apart from other siding materials. It does not need to be painted unless you want a different color for your home. The only maintenance required is a power washing every so often.
