Cement Fiber Board Siding
(see also James Hardie FiberBoard Siding)
Cement fiber board house siding can resemble stucco, wood clapboards, or cedar shingles depending on how the panels are textured. The material is made from portland cement mixed with ground sand, cellulose fiber, and other additives. This makes cement fiber board more durable and less expensive than wood as well as being fire resistant. It’s also impermeable to many common forms of damage that threaten wood siding, such as water damage and rot.
Cement fiber board siding was first developed by James Hardie Industries in Australia over 100 years ago. The company discovered the process of its construction while researching building materials that could withstand the wear and tear associated with extreme climates. Cement fiber siding is extremely strong, and is resistant to fires, insects and rot. Cement fiber is highly moldable, meaning that it can appear in a variety of styles. In many cases, fiber cement board is made with simulated wood grain. However, other designs, including smooth or stucco appearances, can also be found. Amazing Siding & Windows offers top-of-the-line cement fiber siding for your home. Expertly installed and backed by warranties that are unmatched anywhere in the industry, you may never need to concern yourself with the outside of your home again!
Unlike vinyl siding, cement fiber siding does need to be painted. However, unlike wood, fiber cement board absorbs paint in an enduring way. Cement fiber siding coated in a good, protective paint will likely never peel or chip. While the appearance can be every bit as lovely as wood, you save yourself the worry about serious problems such as water damage. All of the exterior walls of most homes can be covered with cement fiber, and in many cases the soffits as well.
