Properties & Benefits of This Siding Replacement Material
Fiber cement has become increasingly popular as a siding replacement material – and for good reason. Fiber cement is more durable than nearly every other type of material: aluminum, vinyl, wood, stucco and more. It’s also highly insulative, reducing energy loss so your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to keep your home warm or cool throughout the seasons.
Moss Roofing is proud to offer James Hardie® siding, which is a premium fiber cement product.
What Is Fiber Cement Siding & Why Should I Choose It?
Fiber cement is a composite material made of cellulose fiber, cement and sand that is molded and baked at a high temperature. It has been specially designed to withstand the weather in Indianapolis, meaning that it won’t deteriorate when exposed to high humidity, ice, snow and rainfall.
Many homeowners fear that fiber cement siding will not be attractive, but it can closely mimic the look of more traditional siding options, including wood and stucco – even down to the natural wood grain of cedar. This way, you can capture the aesthetic of wood without all the maintenance associated with this material. Further, fiber cement is designed to outlast other siding options and keep its color longer – in fact, it can hold a paint finish more than twice as long!
Other benefits of fiber cement siding include the following:
- Wind- and moisture-resistant
- Resistance to warping, cracking, pitting & fading
- Baked-on color for longer paint wear
- Minimal maintenance
