When you think of fiber cement siding, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Boards dripping with wet cement? Gray, unappealing textures? Perhaps even thoughts about how it can’t possibly be environmentally friendly?
None of this could be further from the truth! The fact is that fiber cement siding has tons of benefits, both wallet-friendly and environmentally favorable! In the infographic below, Allura USA helps homeowners understand the advantages of choosing fiber cement siding in keeping their houses covered.
This beautiful type of siding comes in a huge variety of colors and textures. It is also so durable, that you might not have to paint for 25 years! That is a huge amount of time saving labor, not to mention paint costs, which many people don’t realize! While it might cost you a bit more upfront than vinyl siding, it certainly costs far less than stucco, which will need to be repainted every 3 to 5 years. This beautiful, yet durable, type of siding far outlasts vinyl siding, which means a great deal less trash in our landfills!
You may not have heard as much about fiber cement siding, but it certainly isn’t new. In fact, this type of siding has been around for almost 100 years. So it’s not as if you are dealing with some newfangled product no one has heard of!
While you can paint fiber cement siding yourself, why not get it primed and painted right at the factory? This way, the work is done for you and the warranty is much longer than siding you paint yourself. There are dozens of colors and textures, too, so you should be able to find exactly what you want. Many people opt for a natural wood color and grain like texture, but there are dozens of choices.
If you live in a hot and/or humid climate, fiber cement siding would be the perfect choice for your home. It won’t rot like wood and it’s termite resistant.
If you are thinking of replacing your siding, you would be wise to check out fiber cement siding. You will be pleasantly surprised by all the colors and options available!
