Picking a siding material for your home will heavily influence your exterior’s architectural appeal and functionality. Nowadays, more and more homeowners are choosing to use fiber cement as the best wall cladding for their home because of its many advantages. In fact, it is currently being showcased by 20% of new homes we see today. If you’re planning on remodeling your home, a fiber cement siding installation has a lot in store for you.
How Fiber Cement Is an Upgrade From Other Siding Materials
Fiber cement can be painted and coated to replicate the rustic look of wood or the historical appearance of natural stone, giving you endless possibilities with how you can display it. It also became popular because it is generally less expensive than most other siding while being equally durable.
Fiber cement siding works particularly well in hot climates as well as wet areas where home exteriors are prone to rot and fungus. It is also ideal in areas prone to wildfires because of its non-combustible quality. No matter what your concerns are with your place, a local siding expert can offer you this material without hesitation.
Fiber Cement Siding Lasts for a Long Time
There are factory-produced finishes that carry a 15-year warranty against flaking and fading. In addition, some manufacturers offer warranties against defects from 25 years to limited lifetime. Only minimal maintenance is required to keep it in good condition. You have to regularly inspect the caulking to keep moisture protection high, and, as long as the paint was applied correctly, a 100% acrylic exterior house paint should last anywhere from 5 to 15 years.
