Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding
Integrity is proud to offer James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding. This product was created by an Australian company back in the 1980s. Their fiber cement siding product has been perfected throughout the decades and is currently composed of a mixture of cement, silica, and natural cellulose fibers. These materials are pressed into molds to form planks or shingles that are cured and then used as exterior siding.
James Hardie fiber cement siding can be pre-painted before installation or painted after being installed. It comes in a variety of textures.
There are many advantages of installing fiber cement siding on your home. Here are a few benefits of this product that we wish to highlight.
Fiber cement siding is durable.
If you are lucky enough to live in the Kansas City area, you know how important it is to side your house with a durable product. Fiber cement siding can withstand the harsh Midwestern weather patterns we all have experienced.
Fiber cement siding can withstand strong wind and rain. It doesn’t rot or warp when exposed to long periods of moisture, and it is crack resistant. It also holds up against hail, snow, and ice.
Fiber cement siding is also resistant to termites, woodpeckers, and other pests that wreak havoc on other products.
Fiber cement siding is less prone to fires.
Check out the flame-spread ratings for popular siding materials. Fiber cement siding has the same rating as brick, while wood siding products have the worst flame-spread rating.
Fiber cement siding is environmentally neutral.
While this fire-resistant product may bring to mind the harmful asbestos siding of the past, fiber cement siding is considered environmentally neutral. Unlike other siding products, it does not release toxins as it breaks down. It is regarded as a green and sustainable product while at the same time being highly durable and safe.
While fiber cement siding is durable, less prone to fires than other materials, and environmentally neutral, cement siding installation requires a crew of professional installers who have experience and the right tools.
Integrity has just the right crew for the job! Our teams take the time to make precise cuts because we know how important that is for the look of the finished project. We also take the time to customize your flashing out of color-matched material.
