Fiber cement is a composite material, made up of sand, cement, and cellulose fibers. Unlike wood fiber cement will not crack or chip and it is not susceptible to fire, rot, or insects. Unlike vinyl, the color of fiber cement will never fade and the material itself will not dent or crack in even the harshest weather. When it comes to siding materials, fiber cement is the strongest, most durable, and the most customizable material on the market.
