In appearance fiber cement siding most often consists of overlapping horizontal boards, imitating wooden siding, clapboard and imitation shingles. Fiber cement siding is also manufactured in a sheet form and is used not only as cladding but is also commonly used as a soffit / eave lining and as a tile underlay on decks and in bathrooms. Fiber cement siding is not only used as an exterior siding, it can also be utilized as a substitute for timber fascias and bargeboards in high fire areas.

Traditional siding products like wood, stone, brick and stucco give you two to three of these with affordability not being one of them. And although vinyl is priced competitively it, the finished look often times leaves a lot to be desired. With fiber cement siding, you have the ideal combination of all these factors and it’s no wonder that fiber cement siding is now installed on 15% of new homes.

Fiber Cement Siding is the only siding that combines the performance of masonry—minimal upkeep, rot, fire, and termite-proof; unaffected by wind or cold—with the look of painted wood clapboards, shingles, even stone or brick. Yet fiber cement goes for just a fraction of the cost of these other materials.
All this has happened in just 25 years, since fiber cement was first introduced. Now architects regularly specify the siding because it holds down costs without compromising aesthetics. It’s even accepted for use in some historic districts.
