Whether you are looking to side a new home, or replace the siding on your existing home, you have a big decision to make. There are many different types of siding you can place on your home, and each type has its own unique look, aesthetic, and benefits. Learning the benefits of various materials can help you determine which siding material makes the most sense for you. Here are four benefits associated with fiber cement siding, in particular:
1. It’s Available in Many Colors and Styles
One of the many benefits associated with fiber cement siding is that this material is available in many colors and styles. Fiber cement siding can mimic the appearance of wood, stucco, stone, or shingles based on its pattern and color. This makes it a great option for those who love the look of one of these other materials, but don't love the downsides associated with those materials. This also ensures that fiber cement will work for any home style and aesthetic.
2. It is Long Lasting
Another benefit of fiber cement siding is that this is a long-lasting material. Fiber cement siding is among the longest lasting siding materials on the market. The exact lifespan of the material varies based on its composition, how well maintained it is, and what weather elements it has to withstand. When properly cared for, this material may outlast you.
3. It has Low Maintenance Costs
The third benefit of fiber cement siding is that it is low maintenance. It does not require a ton of upkeep and care. This also helps to keep your maintenance costs low. Some siding materials, such as wood, need to be constantly checked, maintained, stained, and/or painted to keep it looking its best and to prevent rot. Fiber cement is not a high-maintenance material, which is perfect for those who don't want to spend a lot of time maintaining their siding.
4. It has a Proven Track Record
The final benefit associated with fiber cement siding is that this material has a proven track record. Fiber cement siding has been used as a siding material for over 100 years. Some siding materials have not been around for a long time, so how well they will perform is only an estimate or guess. This is not the case with fiber cement. It has a proven track record of being reliable and durable.
