There are good reasons for this, which we’ll highlight in this article.

What is Fiber Cement Siding?

This is a robust building material patented first in Austria in 1902, which is made from: sand, cement, and cellulose fibers. The modern form of fiber cement products used for various siding purposes, started being manufactured in the 1980s.

Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding

Maybe you’ve already been convinced when looking at a neighbor’s house with fiber cement siding, or maybe this is a thought born out of being tired of dealing with more traditional approaches like wood shingles. Either way, let’s briefly explain why this product is gaining so much popularity in Maryland and across America.

One of the greatest advantages of fiber cement siding is its’ durability. It has excellent impact resistance ability, and requires very little maintenance after installation and painting. The paint has a longer lasting ability than it does on wood or vinyl, looking fresh for a decade and lasting even longer. Also, fiber cement is largely fire resistant, being made from a non combustible material.

Lasting longer and requiring less maintenance is great, and so is the fact that fiber cement siding is also cheaper to install than wood, vinyl, or other alternatives. And when using a trusted certified James Hardie siding contractor, residents of Montgomery County are ensured a quality installation with a superior product.

The last benefit we’ll highlight is significant, although subjective. This is the beautiful look fiber cement siding gives to a home. Many times the unique and attractive look of James Hardie siding in particular, is what gets homeowners interested in fiber cement siding, even before they realize the other benefits. We offer a great selection of color and type, allowing homeowners to find the siding that fits their eye, to creates a beautiful lasting look to their homes.
