Enjoy the Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding
When it comes to the choice of which siding to put on your home, you literally have no shortage of options to choose from, each of which offers unique aspects and benefits compared to the others. Yet for each different type of siding, the purpose is relatively the same: to keep the interior components of your home protected from the perpetual attacks of insects, erosion, and even Mother Nature herself. Which is why your decision will more than likely come down to three factors: durability, appearance, and affordability. Here at Universal Roofing, you can enjoy the best aspects of all three with fiber cement siding.
Fiber Cement vs. All Other Forms of Siding
With any form of masonry siding, you get excellent protection from the weather, as well as mold, insects and fire. However, some may say that you sacrifice a little in the way of aesthetics, as wood or vinyl offers a more customizable look. Fiber cement offers the protection of masonry, with the unique look of wood or shingles, all at a fraction of the cost.
How? The secret lies in its composition. Fiber cement is made by simply creating a mixture of the following ingredients:
- Wood pulp
The cement component provides the durability, the wood pulp offers the distinct look, and the sand acts as a filler to tie to two together. Just how durable is fiber cement? Typically, fiber cement siding can last up to 25 years.
