Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is the newest, and in our opinion, the best type of siding on the market today. It is durable, low maintenance, and a certified green product. Whether you living in the mountains, the city, or the plains, fiber cement siding should be examined as an option for your siding needs. Colorado Siding is a preferred provider of James Hardie® Siding for the State of Colorado.
Fiber Cement Siding Aesthetics
Fiber cement siding is better than vinyl or aluminum at emulating natural wood grain. In some cases, it is visually indistinguishable from certain types of wood siding. Great detail work can be achieved with fiber cement siding, including trim detail.
Fiber Cement Siding Benefits
Fiber cement siding is durable in all weather conditions. It is finished and installed like wood siding but generally comes primed or prefinished. Wood rot, insect damage, and maintenance headaches are not issues for fiber cement siding. Fiber cement siding is woodpecker-proof. For homes in the mountains with possible fire danger, fiber cement siding is the ideal choice because it is noncombustible. In many cases where forest fires have occurred, the only homes left standing are those with fiber cement siding.
Fiber Cement Siding Pricing
Fiber cement siding is a medium-priced product, but the lifetime costs, once the installation is complete, are very minimal, with painting required very infrequently.
Fiber Cement Siding Maintenance
Fiber cement siding is almost maintenance-free. James Hardie® offers a 30 year limited, transferable warranty and a 15-year warranty on the paint finish. No preparation work is normally required before repainting fiber cement siding as the material is nonexpansive and does not hold water. Therefore the paint does not flake or crack.
