With the right material, your siding can last a long time. But, it must be installed properly, and it should be durable enough to handle extreme weather. This includes heavy rain, snow and even sun exposure. Because of this, we recommend James Hardie® fiber cement siding. Find out why it is ideal.
1. Performs in All Climates
Unlike other siding materials, fiber cement protects your panels in all climate conditions. It has excellent fire resistance because it’s non-combustible. It’s also effective against rain and moisture. It can withstand high winds, even winds up to 130 miles per hour. Unlike wood, fiber cement siding doesn’t attract fungi or termites, nor does it promote their growth. Lastly, it won’t become brittle or broken in cold weather.
2. Design Durability
The right look for your siding matters. It can boost the value of your home by complementing the windows and the roof. That’s also what makes fiber cement siding so special. It has various finishes and colors, including cedar and slate.
3. Low-Maintenance Qualities
Fiber cement siding is known for being low maintenance. You only need to clean it twice a year, and it will last its entire 25-year service span (and more if you are dedicated). This can save you more money in the long run when compared to other materials. For example, wood needs to be constantly monitored and cleaned.
4. Special Installation
One notable difference between fiber cement other materials is the weight and tools needed to install it. This siding weighs approximately 300 pounds per square feet. If left to an amateur, it can crack or take too long to install. That’s why we recommend a professional siding contractor. They have the tools to transport it and the training to install it properly.
