That You Can Trust
Why Choose Fiber Cement Siding?
With so many viable choices available for siding, it can be challenging to identify the best possible material for your home. Your house is one of your most important investments, after all, and you want to be sure you make the smartest decision possible. To help, here are some of the benefits of fiber cement siding.
To start, it features a plethora of design options. Most often, people choose to have their fiber cement siding emulate wood, but it can also be fashioned to look like brick and stone. The ability to customize the color and design set fiber cement apart from other natural siding products, although vinyl siding is similarly versatile.
Strong & Durable
Fiber cement siding is strong and durable. As you know, regular cement is incredibly strong, which is why it is used for roads and pavement. When used as siding, it creates an exceptionally weatherproof defense against storm and even fire damage.
Fiber cement siding lasts a long time; so long that you likely won’t have to replace it in your lifetime. Warranties are commonly in the 30- to 50-year range, and with relatively little maintenance involved, it is a reliable option.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does fiber cement siding last?
Fiber cement siding is highly durable and can last more than 60 years. Maintaining the paint finish and caulking can help to extend this life span. This is a much longer life expectancy than wood, which is 30 years, or vinyl, which is typically 40 years.
Can fiber cement siding be painted?
When you select fiber cement siding, you’ll have a variety of colors to choose from that are resistant to fading. After about 10 years, your siding may need paint touchups, but you will never have to sand it in preparation.
Can you screw into fiber cement siding?
Yes, you can drill and screw into fiber cement siding just like you can with wood. Drill a pilot hole first and use screws that are designed for attaching to Hardie Board as regular screws may damage the siding.
