What makes fiber cement so durable?
In addition to siding products, fiber cement accessory and trim products are also available to replace existing overhangs (soffit and fascia) and corner boards. Combining these accessories with the multitude of other moldings and trims that are available today in non-rot materials can give you a long-lasting exterior that will require very little maintenance and give you long-term peace of mind.
What kind of home is a good candidate for fiber-cement siding? Certainly, homes that were built from the late-1970 to the 1990's with composite, hardboard or pressboard siding are great candidates. (How can I tell what type of siding I currently have?) Composite siding is reconstituted natural wood that is fabricated by reducing natural wood to fibers, adding resins, and then pressing the fibers together into panels. This type of siding is not to be confused with Hardie board siding, which is a common name given to the products of one of the manufacturers of fiber-cement siding. In addition, homes with existing wood siding or even stucco finishes are great candidates.
