Fiber Cement Siding: The Best Choice for Modern Homes

It Can Be Made to Look Like Other Siding Materials

Fiber cement siding comes in a wide range of textures, giving you many customization options. Whether you want the look of wood, plank or stone siding on your home, you can achieve the aesthetic you want with fiber cement.

Wood and stone are durable materials, but they have onerous maintenance requirements. With fiber cement siding, however, you’ll only have to provide minimal maintenance while enjoying the same durability and lifespan. In most cases, fiber cement is also more affordable.

It Is Extremely Energy-Efficient

Energy-efficient products in home remodeling are becoming increasingly popular, which is another reason why fiber cement siding is taking the market by storm. Since siding makes up roughly 50% of your exterior, you’re practically guaranteed lower monthly energy bills when you invest in fiber cement siding, which helps reduce air leaks and control the temperature inside your house.

It’s a Smart Investment.

According to several cost vs. value reports, you can get the best return of investment after about eight years of usage, making James Hardie® siding the perfect choice for the modern home.
