offer wood siding and fiber cement siding that will make your home look new again.
Benefits And Drawbacks Of Wood Siding
Wood siding is traditional, beautiful, and unique way to make the most of your home’s exterior. You can mix and match siding for a Victorian effect, and it is easily painted to suit your taste.
Wood siding is available in many textures and styles that can help you express your style through your home’s exterior. Whether you like the look of a log cabin, or prefer traditional lap boards or clapboard, wood can give your home the look you love.
The most obvious drawback to wood siding is that it can be susceptible to pests and rot, and it is not fireproof like metal or stone siding are. It requires plenty of painting, staining and maintenance, but with proper care, wood siding can keep your home looking beautiful for years to come.
What Is Fiber Cement Siding?
Fiber cement siding is a home siding product that is made of sand, cement, and cellulose fiber. The cellulose fiber is pressure treated and added to the sand and cement mixture to provide strength and give the structure flexibility that helps to prevent cracking.
Benefits and Drawbacks Of Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is durable and fire resistant. It is available in many colors, and, like wood, you can paint fiber cement siding. Manufacturers of fiber cement siding advertise the fact that paint applied to fiber cement siding lasts much longer than paint applied to wood.
People like fiber cement siding because it has a nice feel, and it looks more upscale than vinyl siding or metal siding. It is not attractive to pests like termites, and it is highly insular.
Fiber cement comes in different profiles, like lap board, shake, and shingle patterns. It is also moisture resistant.
The biggest drawback to fiber cement siding is the fact that it is heavy, and installation can create a lot of dust. It is also more expensive than vinyl or metal siding of most types.
