The Benefits to Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is a popular wood alternative that can offer the traditional look of natural wood without many of the performance issues that are commonly associated with this type of siding. One of the problems with wood is that it will require significant maintenance and upkeep. Natural wood is susceptible to rotting, cracking, and other issues, which can be expensive and quite a headache for the homeowner. Fiber cement, on the other hand, is a composite material that is extremely durable and better equipped to handle years of inclement weather. At Alure Home Improvements, our professionals are well-versed on the various advantages of all of the siding we offer, and are standing by to help you choose the siding that will meet your performance needs and complement the exterior of your home.
While wood siding is extremely beautiful and can greatly enhance the aesthetics of a home, wood also has a tendency to absorb water. This absorption causes the wood to swell and can lead to advanced deterioration of the siding – particularly during harsh weather. What’s more, you may not notice that there is a problem with the wood siding until it has gotten significant enough to require the total replacement of the product – an unexpected and potentially significant expense. The beauty of fiber cement is that it is available in several wood grain finishes – offering the same attractive finish – but it won’t become brittle or split over time. Plus, fiber cement siding is impervious to wood boring insects and other pests that can greatly damage the home’s siding.
