About Fiber Cement Materials
Fiber cement composites are an ideal choice when it comes to exterior construction. One of the primary concerns for any homeowner is building affordably while ensuring that the home will stand the test of time. Many siding options have a difficult time finagling these two concepts, so homeowners may save in the beginning, but suffer maintenance costs in the long run.
James Hardie Fiber cement siding is:
- Warp, Crack, Heat, Fade and Moisture resistant
- Available in many color options
- Customized to your home’s climate
For these reasons fiber cement siding is thought to be the lowest-maintenance siding option available. With properly installed fiber cement siding, you’ve eliminated many of the maintenance costs that vinyl, wood, or aluminum siding owners will suffer. These key fiber cement features are especially important for homeowners who live in harsh climates and whose homes are highly susceptible to elemental damage.
If this isn’t sufficiently reassuring, James Hardie building products are also backed by generous warranties. These warranties are only applicable to products that have been installed by certified James Hardie contractors. As with so many materials, the efficacy does depend on the quality of the installation.
