A Great Siding Option-Fiber Cement
It may be winter, but it’s always a good time to think about upgrading your home. New siding is a great way to add beauty and value to your house. There are many reasons to consider fiber cement siding for your home. Fiber cement siding is beautiful, strong and easy to maintain.
Depending on your home’s style, the wood-like appearance of fiber cement siding can be very appealing to homeowners who want the look of wood without the high cost and maintenance. The components of fiber cement are cement, sand and cellulose fiber that are steam treated to resemble wood. The resulting grainy texture is stained or painted either before or soon after it is installed. This gives homeowners an unlimited choice of colors. Fiber cement comes in a wide range of widths which can conform to whatever style fits best with your taste and your home’s style.
The steam treating gives fiber cement siding its durability. It resists cracking, termites, water damage, rotting and withstands the harsh elements we endure here in the Connecticut and Westchester County, NY area.
Once the fiber cement is painted, the material is more resistant to temperature fluctuations. This means it won’t expand and contract and you won’t have to worry about peeling and cracking. Fiber cement has a much longer lifetime than wood.
Fiber cement siding could be a great looking, durable and low maintenance choice for your home. Call the knowledgeable and friendly professionals at Vinylume to discuss new siding and any other home improvement projects you are considering.
