Below are the main advantages & benefits of Fiber Cement Siding we've discovered:
1. It's resistant to termites and other wood boring insects.
2. It has not warp or rotted on us.
3. It stands up to freeze cycles well.
4. It's fire resistant.
5. Resistant to negative effects of salt spray and UV rays.
Fiber cement siding is a great choice for the outside of your home for several reasons. It is durable, rot resistant, insects resistant, and does not off-gas as much as vinyl siding does. It holds up to hail, wind, snow and ice extremely well.

From the perspective of the average homeowner, some of the great advantages of cement fiberboard are it's uniformity, availability in high quality pre-finished colors (including custom colors), and durability. The keys to a great siding end-product are not only a dynamite siding, but also a highly qualified installation team, to ensure that the manufacturer's requirements AND building code are met. This combination will lead to a lasting high quality finish on any home in any environment.

For us our company it can be hard to not only fulfill green building recommendations, but also doing so under the guise of historical building and city permit codes. Fiber cement accomplishes both as evidenced by Allura siding being sometimes eligible for certain LEED credits. In addition, cities such as Rhinebeck and LaGrange in New York State have approved fiber cement siding for use in their historical district with many other cities following suit.
