What Is Fiber Cement Siding?
It is an exterior cover made of cement reinforced with cellulose fibers or wood pulp and may come pre-painted or pre-stained.
Why Choose Fiber Cement Other Than Any Siding?
It is because fiber cement offers a wide range of features: it is durable, weather and fire resistant, it can be painted and keep costs down. It is perfect for all types of weather and termite resistant.
Is It True That Fiber Cement Siding Is Made of Asbestos?
Asbestos is known for the chemical risks. And the direct answer to the question is NO. Fiber cement siding is not made with asbestos. Other materials were later used for safer and more environment friendly material. It has been almost 30 years since asbestos was last used.
Is It High-Maintenance?
