The Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding

Do you want beautiful siding without the upkeep? Fiber cement siding offers the appearance of wood without the hassle. One of the biggest problems with wooden siding is the way that wood reacts to varying weather conditions. It often warps, shrinks, or rots, and the upkeep requires regular maintenance and painting.

Fiber cement siding eliminates these worries. With its beautiful wood grain appearance and varied color options, it gives you the curb appeal you want. It is five times thicker than vinyl, so it has much deeper grooves that give it a more authentic wood grain appearance, and it is more sophisticated than the plastic look of vinyl.

 

Most Durable Siding on the Market

At Seawright Solutions, we recommend James Hardie fiber cement siding. It is specifically designed for maximum durability and curb appeal. It has undergone rigorous testing by engineers to ensure peak performance. It is weather resistant, and it does not rot, shrink, or warp. Animals and insects will not eat the combination of materials, and the siding is resistant to mold. James Hardie siding is also one of the best options for withstanding fire damage. It will not melt like vinyl, and it will not quickly go up in flames like wood.

Color that won't fade

James Hardie siding also offers ColorPlus technology to help you make the most of your siding purchase. Although the siding can be painted, if you choose to invest in ColorPlus, you will get beautiful color that lasts significantly longer than your average paint job. The James Hardie team has created a special formula for their finish, and they coat it several times (about 50% more than your average paint job) on every surface of the siding or trim. In between each coat, they cure it, baking in the color for a bond that resists chipping and cracking. This technology also resists fading, and it keeps your house looking good for the long haul.
