Fiber Cement is getting quite well know in the siding industry. Its popularity is due to the fact that it feels and looks more like wood than vinyl siding, and is available in styles that resemble wood shingles, clapboard and vertical panels. Fiber Cement board is resistant to moisture, insects, rot and hail. It does not rust and the life expectancy is fifty or more years. It is a low-maintenance choice, with power washing suggested once a year to give your home a fresh, new look; after twenty-five years, it may require a coat of paint.
Cost-wise, Fiber Cement is less expensive than wood siding, but more costly than vinyl siding because of its many advantages.
