When it comes to engaging in a siding replacement, no lower maintenance product imitates real wood siding better than fiber cement siding (sometimes called hardboard siding).
Fiber cement siding from manufacturers like James Hardie, are made from materials including wood fibers, Portland cement, fly ash, and silica. Fiber cement siding is extremely durable, and provides for a higher-end, often more authentic appearance than other siding products. It comes in styles to replicate real wood clapboard or cedar shake siding, all with a beautiful factory finish in a wide range of colors.
Not all siding contractors are well versed in the proper installation methods for fiber cement, but Carl's is certified and factory trained to install properly and insure your new fiber cement siding installation looks great for many, many years.
If you love a wood sided home, but don't love the constant maintenance, Fiber Cement Siding may be just what the doctor ordered.
