We believe having the right information is critical to making a decision. Below are some benifits of Fiber Cement Siding
1)It’s Environmentally Friendly
Fibre cement siding is made from a mix of cement, sand, and wood fibre. The wood fibre is usually recycled from a previous wood-fibre product. Also, this combination of materials is inert, meaning that once it has run the course of its life, fibre cement siding doesn’t do any harm to the earth.
2)It’s Fire Resistant
Fibre cement is highly resistant to fire due to its inert composition.
3)It Won’t Rot
Fibre cement’s composition also makes it very resistant to rotting. Fibre cement siding is very good at resisting the elements. From insects to wind and rain to heat, this material is amazingly durable against anything nature throws at it. James Hardie offers a 30-year warranty on it’s fibre cement HardiePlank Lap Siding.
4)It’s Great for Any Climate
Some siding materials only work in certain climates, but fibre cement fits well in any climate. Expansion and contraction due to fluctuations in temperature are very limited, meaning paint stays on the siding better and there are fewer problems with cracking.
5)It Offers a Wide Variety of Colours and Style Options
The name fibre cement might not conjure up images of imaginative designs, but actually, fibre cement siding comes in lots of different colours, styles, and designs. If you’re building an additional, for example, you can even match the finish of the fibre cement siding with your existing siding.
6)You Could Qualify For a Home Insurance Deduction
Because of fibre cement’s composition, it’s considered in some areas to be masonry, not a wood product. This may help you to qualify for lower home insurance premiums. Talk to your home insurance provider for more information.
