If you love the authentic look of wood siding but are unwilling to deal with the maintenance hassles, then fiber cement siding may be the perfect choice for you and your home. Fiber cement is made from a mixture of water, sand, wood fiber, and Portland cement that is molded into planks and cured at high temperatures. The finished product is extremely durable, yet looks like real wood. What’s not to love?
In recent years, Callen has seen the use of fiber cement siding steadily increase. To meet the needs of our clients, we are a certified installer of James Hardie® fiber cement products. Here are some advantages that set James Hardie products apart from other siding materials:
- Durability – James Hardie products are specifically engineered to withstand damage from moisture, rot, impact, fire, and insects.
- Low maintenance – While James Hardie siding must be painted or stained, the paint can adhere better and last longer than the same paint applied to wood siding, saving you time and money.
- Beauty – James Hardie fiber cement siding is available in a variety of textures and colors. While it can be custom painted, we recommend going with a factory-applied color. ColorPlus® Technology is a baked-on paint finish that is more durable, more sustainable, and warrantied.
- Longevity – James Hardie offers a 30-year transferrable product warranty, as well as a 15-year finish warranty, to cover both paint and labor.
The Cost of Fiber Cement
While it costs more than vinyl, fiber cement siding costs much less than wood, stone, or brick siding, and is often comparable in price to insulated vinyl siding.
