Fibre cement siding is composed of a mixture of cement, sand and wood fibres. Heavy and durable, this type of siding is fire resistant, impervious to rotting and insect infestation, and does not deteriorate due to ultraviolet rays.
Since fibre cement siding is pressed from concrete, many different designs are available – from vertical and horizontal siding to architectural details such as scallops, battens and other various trim materials.
Fibre cement siding can come raw (which needs to be painted) or prefinished from the manufacturer. Finishes are guaranteed for up to 15 years, and can realistically be expected to last much longer due to improved manufacturing and painting processes. The product itself can be warrantied for up to 50 years – which is a testament to its quality and durability.
