Planning to update your exterior? You might want to start with your siding. It is the largest part of your exterior and therefore has the largest impact on your curb appeal, after all. While there’s always the option of having an exterior painting service company apply a fresh coat of paint, there’s only so much paint can do.
If you want your exterior to have a bigger impact in terms of curb appeal, you might want to get a siding replacement. For those looking for a balance between durability and aesthetic appeal, fiber cement siding would be a smart choice.
What are fiber cement siding’s benefits?
Fiber cement siding can resist a wide range of common siding issues including warping, shrinking, cracking, fading, termites, as well as damage from wind-driven debris and extreme temperatures.
There’s a reason why wood siding remains one of the most popular options on the market. Its classic aesthetic appeal can give any exterior a sophisticated elegance. The only problem is wood requires has high maintenance needs, not to mention it’s vulnerable to damage from rot. Fortunately, manufacturers offer fiber cement siding that can mimic the look and feel of natural wood and other premium materials.
Minimal Maintenance Needs
Why pick fiber cement siding over the real thing? Unlike wood siding, fiber cement siding doesn’t need a lot of upkeep to maintain its exceptional durability or aesthetic appeal. Factory-applied finishes on fiber cement siding can last 15 to 20 years while finishes applied on-site last 5 to 7 years. To make sure you get to enjoy all of the aforementioned benefits, make sure only a reputable contractor installs your new siding.
